Making pancakes has never been easier than these clean-eating Banana Oat Blender Pancakes. Flour is replaced by oats, making them super healthy, and they go great with so many toppings!

The other day, I was in the kitchen with Jordan, my 10 year old, and I said I felt like having pancakes. She quickly ran to the pantry and sadly announced, “we don’t have any pancake mix”.

I realized this was a teaching moment to show her how you don’t need pancake mix to make pancakes. Heck, you don’t even need flour! So, I grabbed some rolled oats, full fat plain Greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, a banana, and a few other super simple ingredients, and my blenderOpens in a new tab..

Jordan was super confused. Why did I need a blender for pancakes?  Then, I added the ingredients into the blenderOpens in a new tab., blended it, and started making BLENDER PANCAKES.

“Wow,” she said.  Yep: Wow!

And then we enjoyed some tasty banana oat blender pancakes.

What Are Oat Flour Pancakes?

One of the absolute coolest things about these easy pancakes is that they use oat flour…by blending oats!

This means we can use whole rolled oats for the base which adds fiber, protein, and other nutrients. The oat flour replaces any need for regular flour which, especially in most store-bought pancake mixes, is just bleached, highly refined all-purpose flour.

How To Make Blender Pancakes

Using a blenderOpens in a new tab. to make pancakes is awesome. Not only are they super easy, but you can add all sorts of flavors you might not have originally tried because you can purée it all together.  If you don’t have a kitchen blenderOpens in a new tab., you could also use a food processorOpens in a new tab..  And, shoot, if you don’t have a food processor or a blender, you could just mash everything together and just have non-blended pancakes — they’ll be pretty lumpy, but the flavors will be tasty.

To make blender pancakes, you just need a liquid, a binder, and whatever flavors you’d like to add. In these banana oat blender pancakes, I use unsweetened almond milk and full fat plain Greek yogurt for the liquid, an egg, rolled oats, and a banana for a binder, and some cinnamon and vanilla extract for flavor. I add the wet ingredients, and then the dry. It’s so easy.

In other words: All real ingredients, nothing processed.

Also: Easy.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TOPPINGS FOR BANANA OAT BLENDER PANCAKES?

My favorite toppings for these scrumptious blender pancakes are bananas (of course!), raspberries, and pure maple syrup. Homemade chia jam is another way to get a taste of sweetness on top, without using refined sugar. Other toppings that work great with these flavorful pancakes are:

  • Almonds
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberry compote
  • All-natural peanut butter
  • Coconut flakes
  • bananas
  • raspberries
  • pure maple syrup
  • homemade chia jam

HOW To Make BLENDER OAT PANCAKES VEGAN

Using a plant-based yogurt instead of full fat plain Greek yogurt is the first step to making these blender pancakes suitable for a vegan diet. Then, find a substitute for the egg and you are all set.  

To make these yummy pancakes without an egg, make a chia egg. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 2 ½ tablespoons of water
  2. Let it sit for 5 minutes and you’ve got a chia egg that makes a perfect vegan substitute 

Or, replace the egg in the recipe with a banana. One banana equals one egg and in this case, gives the recipe even more delicious flavor!

How To Make Banana Oat Blender Pancakes Gluten-Free

If you’d like to make these blender pancakes gluten-free, you just need to use gluten-free rolled oats instead of regular oats.  Otherwise, all the other ingredients in these good-for-you pancakes fit the gluten-free profile.

  1. Made them this morning and they are fantastic! I did replace the almond milk with fat free cottage cheese because the meal plan I’m following would consider almond milk as a fat which I can only have a dinner! The cottage cheese worked great and added extra protein to the pancakes. Using the cottage cheese makes the pancakes more crepe like and I got this idea from the blintz pancake recipe in Taste of Home magazine years ago!

  2. Does anyone else find these really runny? I find myself adding more oats to make the batter thicker. Love the recipe though.
