How to make banana oat pancakes

Preparing these vegan pancakes couldn’t be simpler. Simply blend some oats into oat flour and mix with baking powder (photo 1). Then add the dry ingredients: dairy-free milk and mashed banana (photo 2).

Tip: I like to blend the banana to make the batter extra creamy!

Next, cook your pancakes in a pan with a little oil until golden. Then stack ’em high and enjoy with your favourite toppings!

Pancake topping ideas

The best part about pancakes? All the delicious toppings! Here are a few ways to enjoy your morning stack:

  1. Fresh blueberries, fat-free yoghurt, & honey
  2. Homemade pistachio almond butter, banana & white chocolate chips
  3. Fresh raspberries, chocolate sauce & cacao nibs

FAQ

Can I use any milk in this recipe?

Yes! Both cow milks and dairy-free milks will work in this recipe, with the exception of canned coconut milk (which is too thick).

When do I flip my pancakes?

Wait for small bubbles to appear and the edges to go slightly dry and matte in appearance. Then your pancake is ready to flip!

Why are my pancakes sticking to the pan?

Make sure you grease your frying pan with a little oil before adding the pancake batter. I love using spray oil!

Storage and reheating

These pancakes can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge sans toppings for 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. You can reheat them in the microwave or, my personal favourite, in the toaster!

    I made these pancakes for breakfast this morning and they were incredible! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Could I replace the bananas with something like apple sauce? I’m not a big fan of the taste of bananas.
