These pancakes can be topped with anything you desire, but I include some topping ideas below for some inspiration. I’d love to know if you try these!

These Oatmeal Pancakes Are Only 4 Ingredients!

This is seriously the easiest pancake recipe ever! All you need to make them is:

  • oatsyou can use rolled/old fashioned OR quick oats*
  • ripe bananas
  • eggs
  • baking powder

Plus a little bit of cooking oil or butter to cook them! I like using coconut oil as it adds a nice flavour to the pancakes 🙂

Oh – and toppings of course! I’ve included some of my favourite topping ideas below.

*be sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need to follow a gluten-free diet.

There are so many things you can top these banana oatmeal pancakes with! Some of my favourites are:

The base pancake recipe is sweetened only from bananas. If you’d like additional sweetness, feel free to add a drizzle of maple syrup!

How To Make Pancakes In A Blender

To make this with a blender, simply:

  1. add the oats to the blender and blend on high for 30 seconds, or until an oat flour forms
  2. next, add the bananas, eggs, and baking powder and blend until a smooth batter forms
  3. let the batter sit for 10 minutes to allow it to thicken
  4. then, cook the pancakes!

How To Make Without A Blender

If you don’t have a blender, you will need to use oat flour instead of oats to make this recipe.

Simply whisk together the oat flour, bananas, eggs, and baking powder together in a large mixing bowl – then follow the previous directions!

How To Store & Reheat Pancakes

If you’d like to make a big batch of pancakes to enjoy later, you can easily store them in the fridge for 1-2 days.

Simply cover the pancakes in foil or store them in an airtight container or bag. You can quickly reheat them in the microwave.

If you’d prefer to freeze these pancakes, place a sheet of wax or parchment paper between each pancake (so they don’t freezer together), then wrap them tightly in foil or place them in a freezer-safe bag or container.

Frozen pancakes will keep up to 2 months. You can reheat frozen pancakes in the microwave or in the oven.
