Calling these pancakes ‘life-changing’ sounds like an exaggeration, but they really have simplified our mornings and helped us achieve our daily nutrition goals. I really don’t think I’ll ever use another pancake recipe. These are just too nutritious and delicious to be beat. We make a triple batch about three times a week.
Disclaimer: due to the high moisture content of this recipe, they are pretty ‘wet’. For example, once they’re nice and golden in the pan, you’ll dish them up and cut them and notice that they’re a bit smooshy. I like how moist they are (and think you will, too), but wanted to mention this in case you think you’ve done something wrong. When fresh, they are meant to be that moist and soft. Leftover pancakes that have been in the fridge overnight do firm up and cut into distinct pieces more easily.
I first saw the recipe for this type of pancake floating around online. It was written as one cup plant milk, one cup oats, one banana. It seemed too easy to be true! But I tried it, and it worked. That simple version is fine, but a little baking powder really helps fluff them up. The other ingredients I’ve added here add a little extra flavour and nutrients, but if you prefer to keep things simple, stick with the 1:1:1 recipe — impossible not to memorize!
Hope you love this as much as we do and that it forever improves your morning routine.
I have been making these for almost a year! I am not a pancake fan but this recipe has ruined me! They’re a little softer than regular pancakes but they’re the best I’ve ever had! I add chocolate chips when I’m in the mood, but the pancakes are sweet enough from the bananas. They’re amazing, and a lot healthier too. I make these every time I get bananas. Try them!
I’ve tried a few variations of this type of recipe and this one worked the best. The weren’t too thick and are very satisfying.
There is no going back after trying these delightful flap jacks! Your only complaint will be you want more.
Perfect for busy mornings. Super flavourful with all the additions!
