How to make this easy and Healthy Banana Oatmeal Pancake
The recipe for this pancake is a no-fail recipe. I make this for my kids quite often and it’s very easy to put together. Preparing the batter in a blender or food processor makes the whole process easier and faster. You may need to stop the blender once or twice so that you can stir the batter to ensure an even batter. The result will be a fairly thick batter. However, if you feel the batter is too thick, feel free to add one or two more tablespoons of Milk to thin it out a bit.
All you have to do is to add all your ingredients inside the blender or food processor and blend until a fairly smooth batter is formed. Then scoop the about a quarter cup of batter into your skillet and cook until both sides are browned. I have used both the quick oats and the old fashioned oats for this recipe and both turned out well. . Serve with Honey, Maple syrup or butter. Also good with applesauce!
These oatmeal pancakes cook a little faster than the typical pancakes because of the bananas, so I will advise you use to stay away from butter while cooking this. You can use any cooking oil of your choice, Clarified butter or a non-stick cooking spray to cook them. Also, be sure to keep an eye on them and cook them on medium heat.
This recipe makes 8 pancakes. You can double or triple the recipe as you wish.
Ideas on toppings you can use for your oatmeal pancakes:
- Fresh Strawberries
- Fresh Blueberries
- Banana slices
- Maple syrup
There is no flour used in this recipe, the only binder is the oatmeal so be sure to blend it well in order to get the best of this recipe. Don’t skip that step.
If your batter appears too thick, feel free to add about one to two extra tablespoons of milk to thin it out.
It’s also advisable to brush only a small amount of oil over the surface of the Pan.
Feel free to adjust your cooking heat. If pancake seems to be cooking too fast, reduce heat and if it’s cooking too slow, you can slightly increase the heat.
