Easy and healthy banana oat pancakes

Finding healthy, easy and satisfying breakfasts are always a mission for me. I am a big fan of eggs for breakfast but I get tired of it and so I often look for other ideas, but the other ideas aren’t exactly healthy. Pancakes, French Toast, waffles, Eggs Benedict…Not really ideal. So when I stumbled upon this easy healthy banana oat pancakes recipe, I was incredibly chuffed. They take minutes to knock together and they’re actually delicious.

I am not usually a fan of flourless, sugar free “healthy pancakes”. I tried making a ground almond version a while ago and was left with what tasted like a gritty egg patty. Not my idea of pleasant.

What is so great about this healthy banana pancake recipe is that they have great texture from the finely ground oatmeal and they are packed with goodness. The oats make them gluten free so if you are struggling with gluten intolerance or Coeliac disease these are perfect. (Make sure the oats you are using are gluten free.)

Ingredients

Full recipe and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.

  • Oats/Oatmeal. Rolled oats or old-fashioned oats. Instant oats and steel cut oats won’t work.
  • Bananas. I like to use ripe but not mushy bananas.
  • Eggs. 
  • Baking powder. 
  • Salt.

Is oatmeal gluten free?

In short, yes. The problem comes when the oats are processed in a factory or plant with wheat or other gluten-containing grains which can cause cross-contamination so just make 100% sure your oatmeal is gluten free before proceeding.

These healthy blender pancakes also get a good boost of protein from the eggs (be sure to use free-range/organic eggs) and of course the bananas are little health bombs themselves. Packed full of fiber, potassium and many other essential vitamins and minerals. 

All in all, a fantastic alternative to regular old pancakes filled with all the good stuff and a great easy healthy breakfast. Yum!

  1. What an amazing recipe! I travel a lot & need healthy recipes while on the road. I cooked them in my air fryer and could not be happier. I will make these at home going forward. Thank you for giving us an absolute delicious alternative to pancakes.

  2. I just made these pancakes and they were amazing, thank you for sharing…simple to make and lovely consistency and gluten free!

  3. I made this morning and so pleased! I did add a dash of cinnamon & vanilla.
    I topped with fruit and as one said in a previous comment, no syrup needed!
    In my opinion, allowing the mix to rest after blending makes this one stand apart from other similar recipes. Thank you! Very happy! 😁

  4. This looks amazing. I love the nutrition breakdown but what is a serving size? Trying this in the morning. Thanks so much!

  5. Delicious and filling! Like others, I added cinnamon (1/2 tsp.), dash of nutmeg and vanilla (1/2 tsp.). Also added some blueberries. Definitely a keeper! 😋

  6. Hi just made these pancakes left out maple syrup as I am diabetic, Wow they dont need it they are sweet and soft

    Thanks so much Merry Christmas from New Zealand please keep up the great work, I am going to check out the rest of your site.

  7. DELISH!! Per another user comment, I tried with blueberries, and it is amazing. I’m going to make these in smaller bite-sizes and let them cool. I’m guessing they will be great cookie like snacks!

  8. This recipe is greeeeeeat! I do add cinnamon because I just love the flavor, but other than that this recipe is perfection. Super great consistency of the batter and the pancakes are thick the way I like them. Just delicious.
