To Make These Vegan Banana Oat Pancakes, You Will Need:
(Full measurements listed below)
Rolled oats: Opt for old-fashioned rolled oats for the best texture in your pancakes.
Plant milk: Choose your preferred plant-based milk, such as almond, soy, or oat milk, for a dairy-free option.
Baking powder: Ensure it’s fresh to help the pancakes rise and become fluffy.
Salt: A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor of the pancakes.
Bananas: Use ripe bananas for natural sweetness and a smoother batter. Mash them well to avoid lumps.
Blueberries: You can use fresh or frozen blueberries; if using frozen, don’t thaw them before adding to the batter.
Butter or oil (for cooking): Use a non-stick pan and a small amount of oil or butter to prevent sticking and give the pancakes a nice, golden crust.
Vanilla extract (optional; can substitute with syrup or another sweetener): Vanilla extract adds a delightful flavor, but you can replace it with your preferred sweetener like syrup or honey.

Banana Oat Pancakes Cooking Tips:
Mash your ripe bananas well to ensure a smooth batter. A few small lumps are okay, but you don’t want large chunks.
Adjust the consistency of the batter by adding more milk if it’s too thick or more oats if it’s too thin. It should be thick enough to scoop, but not too runny.
Let the pancake batter rest for a few minutes before cooking to allow the oats to absorb the liquid, resulting in fluffier pancakes.
Cook and serve:
Cook the pancakes on medium-low heat to avoid burning and ensure they cook through evenly.
Feel free to get creative with toppings, like sliced bananas, more blueberries, a drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of yogurt for extra deliciousness.

- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup plant milk
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
- 1 banana
- Handful blueberries
Step 1: Preparing the batter
Place the oats in a blender and process them until they become fine flour.
In a mixing bowl, add the oat flour, milk, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract.
Mash half of a ripe banana and incorporate it into the batter.
Thoroughly mix all these ingredients together until you have a smooth batter.
Step 2: Cooking the pancakes
Heat a non-stick pan or skillet over medium-low heat. Lightly grease it with a small amount of oil or vegan butter.
Use a ladle or measuring cup, and pour the batter onto the hot pan. Decide the size of your pancakes according to your preference.
Drop a handful of fresh blueberries onto each pancake while it’s cooking.
Allow the pancakes to cook undisturbed until you start seeing bubbles forming on the surface.
Step 3: Flipping and cooking the other side
Once the bubbles have formed and the edges of the pancakes are set, it’s time to flip them.
Carefully slide a spatula under each pancake and flip it over to cook the other side.
Cook the second side until it turns a beautiful golden brown, which should take about 1-2 minutes.
Step 4: Serving the pancakes
While the pancakes are cooking, slice up the remaining half of the banana.
Once the pancakes are ready, transfer them to a serving plate.
Top your freshly made Banana Oat Pancakes with the banana slices and syrup. Enjoy!
