I’m a fan of pancakes but I’m not a fan of being hungry shortly after eating them or having a sugar crash!
Typical pancakes call for things like white flour, sugar, eggs, milk and syrup to top it off. Sorry folks, but that’s not the formula for a healthy breakfast.
These pancakes are upgraded due to their use of whole oats (fiber, baby!), bananas, almond milk and that’s it! Okay, also a pinch of baking soda. But that’s really it! Super simple right? Yes. These are healthy (and delicious) enough to eat daily.
To make these even more filling and healthy, switch out the butter and maple syrup for a (no sugar or oil added) peanut or almond butter to give your body a dose of beneficial fats and no refined sugar.
Super Simple Oat Pancakes
- 3/4 cup dry rolled oats
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- Place all ingredients into a blender (a single serve blender cup works great for this).
- Blend until smooth. Let batter sit to thicken up for a couple of minutes while you prepare a skillet.
- Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle to medium heat. Use a tiny bit of oil if necessary.
- Scoop batter onto skillet in desired proportions.
- Let pancakes cook until bubbles form before flipping.
- Cook the other side until golden brown.
Serve with berries, pumpkin seeds, nut butter, or bananas. Add a smoothie if you’re really hungry!
Note: Recipe can easily be doubled, etc.
