Flourless Banana Pancake

  • 4 cups old fashioned rolled oats, if you are gluten free, you might want to get certified gluten free
  • 2 1/2 cups milk, or non-dairy milk
  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 heaping tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs


  • Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Use an immersion blender to blend everything together until oats are ground and there are no chunks of bananas, about 1 minute. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can also put everything in a blender or food processor.
  • Ideally, let the batter sit for 15-30 minutes to allow the oats to hydrate. I have cooked them right away, but the pancakes turn out better and fluffier if it sits. So just sit down with your coffee and read the paper. (Tell everyone it’s mandatory…part of the recipe!)
  • Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick pan over medium heat. When hot pour batter onto griddle* and cook about 2-3 minutes per side.

Recipe Notes

  • Great add-ins while cooking: chocolate chips, blueberries, raspberries, banana slices, or white chocolate chips
  • Top with maple syrup, homemade blueberry syrup, or spread with peanut butter or Nutella
  • My griddle works without using any oil to cook the pancakes. If you find your pancakes sticking, you can use butter, cooking spray, or coconut oil.
  • You can halve the recipe if you don’t need as many. I like to put the extras in a gallon freezer bag to use for weekday breakfasts.
