Whether you're gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, low-carb, or just eat anything and everything, there's something delicious for you!
Flip up a batch of these delicious, vegan banana oat pancakes for a fun weekend brunch or even a slow morning breakfast! They’re gluten-free and super easy to make.
These pancakes have become a weekend go-to in my apartment – not only because they taste like banana bread in pancake form, but they also can be made with just a few simple pantry staples, making them extremely easy to make. And when I say easy, I mean blend, pour, flip, done… seriously, so simple!
There’s no better feeling than finding a new recipe to make and having everything on hand – and I can guarantee that you most likely have the three main components to this recipe. All you’ll need is…
Once you have the base to this recipe, you can really get creative with it! In this specific recipe, I included vanilla for a little extra burst of flavor, but you could also add cacao powder for chocolate pancakes, cinnamon, peanut butter powder, your favorite flavor extracts, or whatever you like.
And of course, there’s TOPPINGS! In my opinion, pancakes aren’t even pancakes without chocolate chips (anyone agree?), but here are some of other favorite toppings as well…
Aside from add-ins and toppings for flavor, sometimes I also like to add a scoop of protein powder or even an egg to increase the protein content a bit. The possibilities are really endless!
Now, onto the recipe!
I hope ya’ll love this simple pancake recipe and make it a weekend staple like it is for me! Let me know what you add to make it your own, in the comments below. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!
In a blender, combine oats, banana, almond milk and vanilla extract. Blend until completely smooth. Mix any extras into the batter (I added blueberries and chocolate chips).
Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a non-stick pan.
Once hot, add 1/4 cup batter into the pan. When the bottom half is cooked and bubbles start forming on the top, flip pancake.
Repeat step 3 until batter is gone.
Plate pancakes, add any desired toppings, and drizzle with maple syrup!
