Oatmeal Banana Blender Pancakes

Pancakes that are quick, tasty, healthy, AND easy to make? It’s true! Made from simple ingredients, this batter comes together effortlessly in your blender and cooks up like a dream. I was well-known for my pancakes disasters, but not anymore! Serve right away or freeze for later. These are the pancakes everyone needs in their life.

When I first switched to a plant-based diet I was trying to make healthier versions of all my favorite foods, and it seemed like every pancake recipe I tried failed (my amateur spatula skills certainly didn't help!). After having failed many, many times, I finally did what I do best and ditched the recipes! What did I have to lose? I threw oats, bananas, almond milk, and a few other ingredients in my blender and hoped for the best. I was pleasantly surprised when they bubbled up perfectly on the pan and didn't stick! Finally, pancakes even I could make!

Oats are a great source of fiber and are what is called a complex carb, meaning they have a lesser effect on blood sugar than the white flour found in traditional pancakes. The flax seeds add a boost of healthy fats, and the bananas help create the perfect texture and sweetness without any added sugars. 

After having friends tell me they've made these for dinner (the best!) and for their kids, I had to share the recipe! My baby loves them too, which is an added bonus. Whether for breakfast, dinner, or even a snack, I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
