Starting the new year with these Easy Banana Oat Pancakes! Just blend up banana, oats, sweetener, leavening and a bit of almond flour and done!

These pancakes are best served fresh as they are fluffy right off the girdle. With no gluten, the fluffyness tends to reduce on cooling. Refrigerate the batter to keep for longer and make the pancakes when ready to serve! Add spices or blends of choice for flavor, add some candied fruits, chocolate chips or nuts to the batter for variation

Notes

Fold in chocolate chips, berries, chopped nuts in the batter for variation. 
Serve the pancakes fresh off the girdle for best texture. The pancakes are gluten-free without extra starch and gums to hold the fluffy texture, so the fluffyness tends to settle after a while when cool. For the same reason, the texture of the pancakes is different from classic pancakes.

    We liked the flavor alot, but it seemed the pancakes were a little doughy. I think maybe if I turn the heat lower and cook longer that might work. Also hard to get all the batter out of the blender due to the blades, so maybe putting in a bowl or measuring cup before it thickens would work better. Thanks for the recipe, yummy!

      sorry they didn’t turn out how you expected! yes, blenders can be that way – with things like hummus too. Medium heat is recommended. I love my Blendtec blender & Nutribullet for everything – you can check them out here: https://www.amazon.com/shop/veganricha/list/LTI6QY3XOMOC

    Hello. I ran out of lemons…. is there something I can substitute?

    1. Richa says:

      Lime or vinegar

  4. Stephanie Long says:

    Hi! I really liked this recipe! One of the best I have found. My son has multiple food allergies, including eggs, dairy, wheat and almonds. I have a question, could I substitute apple sauce for bananas? And also could I use coconut flour?

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      the bananas have a very different texture – apple sauce wouldn’t form a pancake…

    I was hungry for pancakes, but I am plant based, and allergic to gluten. I had found this recipe about 5 months ago, and decided to try it yesterday. I found these very tasty, and different from other pancakes. I added the pumpkin spice to the recipe. I at my last one today, and it was even better tasting then the first day. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tasty recipe.
