    This recipe is made even healthier with the use of oat flour—made by blending rolled oats—which is better for you than wheat flour. Be sure to use a ripe, soft banana, so the pancakes will have a soft and tender texture.

    Feel free to add extra ingredients to switch it up, like vanilla extract, chocolate, cinnamon, raisins, or other dried fruits.

    What You Need to Make 3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

    For pancakes, you can use almost any oats—not too large and not too hard. To turn them into flour, you will need a blender with a bowl. The finer the flour, the softer the pancakes will be.

    Note: These 3-ingredient banana oatmeal pancakes won’t be fluffy, as there is no baking powder in the batter. Also, do not make the dough too thick—if the pancakes are too thick, they may not bake from the inside, and the outside will already be very fried.

    How To Make Banana & Oat Pancakes

    Add oats to a blender. Close the lid and grind on high speed for 1-2 minutes. You should end up with a fine flour without large pieces.

    Grinding oatmeal in a blender

    Pour 2/3 of the almond milk into the blender bowl and add the sliced banana. Close the bowl with a lid and grind everything together for another minute.

    Adding banana and milk into a blender

    If the pancake dough is too thick, add the rest of the milk and stir. The dough should be thick enough to drip off a spoon slowly.

    Mixing all ingredients in a blender

    Heat up a non-stick frying pan. Spoon a small amount of dough and fry on medium heat for 3 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for 2 minutes on the other side.
