Healthy Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

Oatmeal Banana Pancakes made healthy with oats, bananas, unsweetened non-dairy milk and no added sugar. Gluten-free friendly and you can even sub flaxseed meal in place of the egg for vegan friends. Perfect for slow weekend mornings but freezer-friendly for weekdays too!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 12 pancakes 1x
  • Scale:


  • 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 large egg*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 2 cups rolled oats** (OR 1 1/4 cups whole wheat white flour)
  • 1 TBS baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 TBS butter, ghee or oil (for cooking)



  1. Add all ingredients to blender starting with milk and ending with salt (through cinnamon if using). Blend until smooth – some oat pieces will remain whole which is okay. Remove blade from blender.
  2. Heat large skillet over medium heat; once pan is hot add butter or oil.
  3. Using 1/4 measuring cup, scoop batter and pour onto pre-heated skillet. Careful not to crowd. Cook pancake on on side until edges begin to bubble – about 3 minutes. Using large spatula gently flip and cook for 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Transfer cooked pancakes to warmed oven before serving with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

Recipes Notes:

Recipe can be easily cut in half for smaller batch.

Pancakes freeze well once cooled. Simple store flat in a silicone reusable bag or airtight container in fridge or freezer. Reheating in toaster oven is my preferred method.
