Breakfast doesn’t get much easier than these Banana Oat Blender Pancakes. Toss everything in the blender and pour straight on the griddle. A wholesome, simple recipe that everyone will enjoy for breakfast!
I find that being in the kitchen is a form of therapy for me at times. I enjoy the art of creating. So this morning, the kitchen is exactly where I began my day. What do we want in the morning? Pancakes, of course!
So I started to play.
The first try didn’t go so well. I was going for almond flax pancakes, but even after a few adjustments, the texture just wasn’t there. Then, I realized I had one last banana that was looking pretty ripe. Perfect!
A couple months ago, I tried a recipe for banana oat pancakes that promised the best pancakes ever with just three ingredients. I was a bit skeptic, but gave it a try with just oats, an egg and a banana. The end result was my husband not too thrilled. I decided to take those key ingredients and then spice things up to get a better flavor and texture. I was much more pleased with the way that these turned out. Breakfast was quite delicious this morning, and other than the one botched recipe, fairly easy.
Hope you enjoy these soon as well!

Banana Oat Blender Pancakes
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup oats
- 1 egg
- 1/3 c milk of choice
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon more to taste
- Optional: chopped pecans or walnuts
- Process oats in food processor until they become a flour consistency. (This may take a bit of time, but if you don’t process to a flour, pancakes will be gritty.)
- Add in banana and egg. Process until a smooth texture.
- Add in milk, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Process until combined. If they seem thick with just the 1/4 cup milk, add a touch more!
- Warm up the griddle and use whatever oil, butter or ghee to grease it up and then spoon batter to form pancakes. Add walnuts or pecans if desired. Wait until edges bubble and flip.
A flax egg would probably work, but I did not try it so let me know if it works for you!
Hope you have a delicious breakfast!
