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.

Vegan Banana 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 here.

Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes

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. Having ripe bananas on hand,  I decided to make a recipe for easy oatmeal banana pancakes.

How To Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

The process to make these kid-friendly vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes 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 Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes 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.  I usually put a lid on my skillet and leave it slightly open after I turn over the pancake just to make sure it cooks through. 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

Is Oatmeal Gluten-free?

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.

    These were fantastic! My son has a lot of allergies, so I was so happy to find this recipe. I substituted soy milk for the almond milk since he has a tree nut allergy, but otherwise kept the recipe as-is! I didn’t get a completely smooth batter (my food processor isn’t the greatest) but the slight oatmeal texture still worked. My son DEVOURED them (as did I)!

    Just made these for a relaxed Sunday morning breakfast. They turned out perfectly. I used oat milk, 2 bananas and medjool dates for sweetener. Will definitely make these pancakes from now on. Thank you for posting!

    Accidentally used quick oats the first time and got very, very tasty wallpaper paste that made thick cakes once I almost doubled the milk! Then used the gluten free rolled oats like the recipe called for—perfection! 😊

      I should have had a second cup of coffee before I posted that. 😂 What I meant to say is that these are delicious! I have eaten these pancakes twice this week and I just found the recipe on Tuesday. I’ve tried many dairy free and gluten free pancake recipes and this is the BEST by far.

    This is my first time rating a recipe but it is well deserved! I cannot understand how anything gluten free and as easy as this recipe can be as fluffy and delicious as these are! These are lighter than any “regular” pancake I’ve ever eaten. I only used half the syrup and also used oat milk and they were really amazing! We are doing an elimination diet for my daughter to see if wheat has a negative effect on her eczema and these have just saved breakfast for us. Thank you so much!

      Melissa, thank you very much for your feedback. I really appreciate it. All the best with your daughter’s elimination diet and I hope she will find out exactly what she is allergic to.

    These are super good, but sweet. I have decreased the maple syrup to 1 teaspoon – added a smidge extra milk to make up for the liquid and they are still super yummy. Make them quite often. Love that they are so simple to make

    I’m really surprised how great these are! They were super easy to make, with everything in the blender. I did add a little extra oats because it seemed a tad thin and they turned out excellent!
