I recently came across this recipe for banana oat pancakes. I love breakfast and breakfast foods, and this recipe was a winner! I modified it slightly – eliminated the sugar, and added in chopped nuts. Bananas are so naturally sweet anyways, I really didn’t think the pancakes needed any added sugar. The bananas are blended before adding them to the batter, so you don’t have banana chunks in the pancakes, just an overall banana flavor.
This is how I like to start my day!
Banana Oat Pancakes
Print this recipe!
1/2 cup oat flour (oats processed in blender or coffee grinder)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 large eggs
2 large bananas, sliced and blended until smooth
2 tbsp yogurt
1/4 cup chopped almonds
In a blender or coffee grinder, place 1/2 cup oats and process until smooth. Add to a medium bowl. Add in the flour and spices.
Peel and slice the bananas, and blend until smooth.
Add to the flour mixture, with the other ingredients.
If you need to make the batter thinner, add some milk until you reach the consistency you would like. (I didn’t need to add any).
Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. Gently pour 1/3 cup batter into the preheated pan. Cook several minutes, until you see tiny bubbles. Flip over and cook the other side.
You can preheat your oven to the lowest setting, and keep the pancakes warm while you cook the rest.
Add your choice of toppings and enjoy!
These pancakes were really nice and fluffy, and very filling!
Just a drizzle of maple syrup was all I needed!
