Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

These fluffy and moist Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes are so easy to prepare and they are delicious. They are made with simple ingredients including gluten-free rolled oats.

Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes


So my son Daevyd requested pancake this morning and right away I started thinking what kind of healthy pancake recipe could I make for him that will be easy to prepare and be different from the ones that I have already shared on here.

I wanted to prepare a recipe for oatmeal pancakes without flour and share it with you all.
I have already shared my Strawberry Protein Pancakes, Carrot Cake Pancakes, Raspberry Almond Pancakes and my Jamaican Banana Fritters Recipe. I had ripe bananas on hand so I decided to make a recipe for easy oatmeal banana pancakes.

How To Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

The process to make these kid-friendly pancakes were so easy that even your little ones can help. I made it the pancakes in a blender which made cleaning up so easy.

You want to start with a very ripe banana, the one with all the speckles. It will add nature flavor and sweetness to your pancakes. For the oatmeal, I used certified Gluten-Free Rolled Oats and my favorite brand is Bob's, Red Mills.

I literally placed all the ingredients in my high-speed blender and process until smooth. The batter thickens as it sits so you want to bear that in mind when preparing your pancakes so don't leave the batter sitting for too long.

I made this recipe three times and the first time I did I didn't include the baking powder and the recipe turned out great, so it is totally up to you whether you use it or not.

If the batter gets too thick, add a little extra liquid whether it be more non-dairy milk or water and blend for about 4 seconds until batter is smooth and at the right consistency again.

I cook the pancakes on each side in a non-stick pan.  My favorite way to serve pancakes is topped with maple syrup and fruits. I also love to spread with peanut butter and jelly.

Pancakes Made With Banana And Oatmeal

Note that although gluten-free oatmeal is used in the batter, you will find a percentage of individuals who are sensitive to gluten will also be sensitive to oatmeal.

Oatmeal doesn't contain gluten but may get cross-contaminated with wheat during processing. The protein in oatmeal is called avenalin, it is similar to the protein in wheat called gluten.

However, some people who are sensitive to wheat find that they are also sensitive to oatmeal, they get the same bad reaction as they do when they consume wheat.

    I love pancakes. And I would eat them every day if I didn’t set boundaries on myself. I’m always trying new pancake recipes and when I saw Michelle‘s recipe on Facebook, I got real happy. So I made the recipe the next morning for breakfast and they turned out perfect! And I’ve made them two or three more times since. One time I was out of rolled oats and I substituted quick oats. It change the consistency and they didn’t cook well and they definitely didn’t taste near as good. So please stick to the recipe and only use rolled oats. They were so easy to make
    too! I have many vegan pancake
    recipes, however Vegan Banana
    Oatmeal Pancakes is my favorite!
    Thank you Michelle for another five star recipe!

    Very excited to see this post! If we don’t have any super ripe bananas do you think it could be made as regular pancakes without bananas?

    Or I have some frozen bananas I could thaw out if you don’t think that would alter things too much?

    These look like the perfect way to start the morning! I’m so intrigued that there is no egg replacer — it makes me wonder why normal pancakes have eggs to begin with.

      You made a great point, served my cake at an event this weekend and the people were amazed that it didn’t contain egg or milk. It was light and fluffy.

    These pancakes look so fluffy, I would never have guessed that they weren’t a traditional pancake batter! Love that they’re a healthier way to have a hearty weekend breakfast. I almost always have these ingredients on hand, so they’ll be on my breakfast table soon!

    I feel like no matter how much I whisk pancake batter, I always end up with lumps – making it i the blender will totally eliminate that issue!

    Oh my goodness I LOVE this recipe! how simple! And I love that you just blend all the ingredients in the blender! I bet that helps with the fluffy consistency of the batter. I’m so marking these and saving this for later!

    Oats are so versatile and healthy! I love that you’ve used them in your pancakes, and the banana makes them hearty and moist. And yay for getting children into the kitchen helping!

    I love that these are made with oats. I’ve been trying to find a better, healthier option for pancakes for us. I didn’t like how hi the simple carbs are in traditional pancakes. This is great, saved this little gem!

    I love pancakes so much it’s crazy. These look wonderful and I’m always up for a vegan version.

    I love how the oats and banana make these pancakes a little heartier than basic buttermilk ones. I find I’m always hungry earlier in the day when I just have pancakes made with white flour!

    You can never go wrong with great pancakes for the weekend brunch. I like to whip up a huge batch and have them in the freezer for a quick breakfast any morning. These sound totally delicious…and I love the addition of bananas and oatmeal. Nice and hearty.

    Had this for breakfast today .. My husband was banana happy and bought like 5 bunches of banana and now they are really ripe( don’t like eating them like that). So I made this recipe .. It turned out great.. It doesn’t have a strong banana taste which is good. Hubby like it with his almond butter. I live in the country and a “brother” of ours makes maple syrup and I just got my fresh batch from him ( 3 4L jars)… So I enjoyed my pancakes with fresh maple syrup 😋 . Thanks for another easy recipe that taste good.
