Fluffy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Happy Saturday! Today I’m sharing a breakfast staple in my house: banana oatmeal pancakes!

This recipe is inspired by the 3-ingredient pancake recipe, which uses 2 eggs, a ripe banana, and cinnamon. I added oat flour by blending oats in a food processor for an extra boost of whole grains, fiber, and protein.

These banana pancakes have a similar texture to regular pancakes with the addition of baking powder. They are popular among my siblings, and it is commonly requested for breakfast when I am visiting home. They always ask me to make extra to freeze, so they can enjoy them during the week after I leave.

Try out my recipe below- you’ll want to double it so you can freeze extra pancakes for a quick and nourishing breakfast!

– 1 large ripe banana
– 1/2 cup oat flour
– 2 eggs
– 1/4 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Peel the banana and break it into several big chunks. Place in a small bowl and mash banana with fork, until no large chunks remain.
2. In another bowl, combine oat flour, baking powder, and spices and stir in mashed bananas.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and pour over the banana mixture, and combine well. The batter should look liqiudy.
4. Heat pan on medium heat until hot. Put a pad of butter onto the pan and spread it around. Pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes, until a few bubbles are formed on the pancake. Flip the pancakes and cook for additional 1-2 minutes.
5. Transfer pancake to a serving plate. Enjoy with desired toppings such as a dollop of yogurt, peanut butter, walnuts, sliced bananas, chocolate chips, or honey.

Notes: Recipe inspired by The Wholesome Fork.

You can substitute the oat flour for other flours such as all purpose, whole wheat flour, or almond flour depending on dietary restrictions/preferences.  If the pancake batter is too thick, add a splash of milk to make the batter similar to a pancake consistency.
