Ingredients you will need

To make my banana oat pancakes, funnily enough, you will need oats and bananas! On top of that, I use an egg, greek yoghurt, baking powder, a little maple syrup and then cinnamon and vanilla extract to round out the flavour.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

  • Maple syrup: This can be subbed for a spoonful of honey or sugar, or it can be left out entirely. If you are making this recipe for a child under one year of age please do not use honey.
  • Rolled Oats: I use traditional large rolled oats for the pancake batter, but as this is a blender pancake batter you can use the finer quick cook oats without any problems.
  • Greek yoghurt: I use greek yoghurt as that's what I typically have in my fridge but any yoghurt or an equivalent amount of milk, will work fine in this recipe. Cottage cheese is also an appropriate substitute. If you can not have dairy then any dairy alternative milk such as almond milk will work.

Top Tips

Here is how you can make this banana oat pancake recipe perfectly every time!

  • Cook your pancakes over relatively low heat, these pancakes have a tendency to brown quite quickly.
  • If you want to boost the protein content you can add a spoonful of nut butter such as almond butter before blending the batter.
  • For a little bit of fun factory you can stir some chocolate chips through the blended batter.
  • Leftovers make an amazing snack or lunchbox addition
  • Leftovers also freeze really well.

My kids are huge pancake fans, I love pancakes that have wholesome ingredients, particularly oats. Oats give sustaining energy and really fill kiddos up and keep them going.

    I made these, spur of the moment, this morning after seeing them pop up on MyKidsLickTheBowl Insta story. Love, love, love that this is an easy and delicious pancake recipe packed full of nutritious ingredients. Whole family agreed too - this is our new go to pancake recipe!

      1. I have adapted the recipe a little...
        1cup flour 1 cup oats so they don't stick and burn so easy. And mix in frozen blueberries after blending. Gives a nice sweet burst.
        I also slice and freeze any left over or over ripe bananas so I always have a supply on hand for this recipe. It's a Saturday breakfast staple.

    1. I'm sorry in this recipe I haven't attempted to sub the egg, although it's likely to work by doubling the banana, I have quite a similar recipe on my site that is egg-free but uses apple and oats which might suit you. Search babu pancakes apple and oat and it will come up.

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I have had an excellent wheat pancake recipe as my go to for years but not anymore. This is my new go to. I’ve tweaked yours slightly to suit my personal pancake preferences but only ever so slightly.

    I’m raving about your recipes to my friends. We made you egg and bacon pie on Sunday and wow and this week I’m having a go at the chickpea blondies too. I love the simplicity, yet full flavour recipes of yours. Thanks so much from my family.
