Healthy oatmeal and banana pancake mixed in a blender and it’s super tasty! These ingredients make 9 pancakes and serves 3 people.

Ingredients

  • cup Quaker oats (old fashioned rolled oats)

  • 2 Free range eggs

  • 2 medium ripe Bananas

  • ½ cup Unsweetened almond milk

  • 2 teaspoon Baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon Sea salt

  • Olive oil

Directions

  • Add all ingredients in the blender, blend until it’s smooth and let batter sit for about 2mins before pouring in a bowl
  • Heat a frying pan or a griddle on medium heat and coat with a little bit of olive oil. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter at a time and let it fry for about 3mins or until you can see the bubbles pop up. Flip it over and fry for another 2mins.
  • Serve with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup or fresh fruits.

Notes

  • If the pancakes are browning too quickly or frying pan starts to smoke, this means that the heat is too high. If it’s on high heat, turn it down lower. I usually use medium heat and reduce the heat further if needed.
  • Wiping the pan after each round and adding fresh oil also reduces the risk of the pancakes getting burnt.

Frequently asked questions

Can you freeze pancakes?

I prefer to eat pancakes fresh, but if you like to cook it ahead and freeze it, you can do that. To freeze pancakes, put them in lidded freezer-safe plastic containers and freeze for up to three months. The longer you freeze pancakes for, the more it loses taste and texture.
