If you love pancakes and bananas, but you're trying to cut down on white flour and white sugar, I think you are going to love this recipe. These pancakes are healthy and delicious! I love that they are very quick and easy to make and the ingredients are all real food ingredients. I put all of the ingredients in the blender, and the batter is ready to pour within minutes! Enjoy! 🙂
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Coconut oil or butter for coating pan
  • Maple syrup (for topping)
  • Berries (for topping, optional)
  1. Combine milk and vinegar in a cup or small bowl. Set aside for a few minutes to sour.
  2. Combine baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and oats in a food processor. Grind until smooth. (A NutriBullet works well for this.)
  3. Add milk mixture, eggs, banana, and dry ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  4. Heat coconut oil or butter in nonstick skillet over medium-low heat (or use a griddle pan at 300 degrees). Pour ⅓ cup batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form around the edges of the pancake. Flip and cook for an additional 90 seconds. Continue with the remaining batter.
  5. Top with maple syrup and/or berries (if desired)

Real Food: Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

March 22, 2014 030I love this pancake recipe because it is simple to make and it is made with just a few ingredients, all of them being REAL food ingredients.  I also love that this recipe contains no white flour or white sugar.

I just finished reading the book Wheat Belly by William Davis, and while it did not fully convince me to go 100% gluten free, it did reinforce my belief that we should strive to minimize our consumption of products made with white flour.

My daughters do prefer traditional pancakes over these, but I do enjoy these and my 9-year old daughter does as well.  Enjoy!


Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Serves: 2 pancakes

  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup rolled oats
  • ½ banana, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ tablespoon butter or coconut oil, for cooking
  • Pure maple syrup, for serving
  1. In a food processor, grind oats until fine. Add eggs, cinnamon, and banana, and grind until smooth.
  2. Heat butter or coconut oil over medium heat in a skillet.
  3. Add half of the batter (about ½ cup) pancake mix to the skillet.
  4. Cook until you are able to slip a spatula underneath the pancake and lift it without the pancake breaking. Flip the pancake.
  5. Cook until lightly brown.
  6. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with pure maple syrup.
This recipe only makes two pancakes. I only have a mini food processor, so it doesn’t hold a lot of batter. You may want to double the recipe for more servings. Also, the pancakes are thinner than traditional pancakes.
