Banana Oat Blender Pancakes

Pancakes are my weakness, so whenever I can find a healthier alternative, I'm always willing to give it a try!  I usually use my blender for smoothies, but this time around I decided to use it for some tasty banana oat pancakes!

What You Need:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned or quick oats
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

    *You may add fresh berries, almond butter, banana slices and/or honey for serving.*

What To Do:

  1. Heat a large skillet and spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.  (I used the NutriBullet)
  3. Pour about 1/4 of the batter onto the pan and cook on one side for a couple of minutes and then flip (as you would with regular pancakes).
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings!

      *The batter gets thicker as it sits, so for a thinner batter, add a tiny bit more almond milk.*
