Banana Oat Pancakes

(vegetarian, gluten free, nut free)

This banana oat pancake recipe is one of my favourite pancake recipes (I make it every week or so)! With only 5 staple ingredients, you can whip these up in 10 minutes in the morning with minimal effort and clean up.

I highly recommend also adding some fun mix-ins (blueberries, chocolate chips) and toppings (maple syrup, homemade nut butter, fresh fruit) to these pancakes. You may also mix in a spoonful of chia, hemp, or ground flaxseed if you’d like.

A super simple, go-to banana pancake recipe that takes only a few minutes to whip up! 



For the pancakes:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg (or 3 tbsp egg whites)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup oat flour* (+ 1 tbsp if mixture is too wet/banana is large)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash of cinnamon (optional)

Mix in suggestions:

  • chocolate chips 
  • blueberries
  • 1 tbsp ground flax, chia, or hemp seeds

Topping suggestions:

  • maple syrup
  • nut butter
  • fresh fruit


  1. Mash banana in a bowl, then mix in egg.
  2. Mix in vanilla, flour, and baking powder.
  3. Bring a pan to medium heat. Once heated, place pancake batter on pan and let cook until bubbles pop and golden brown on the bottom. Flip and cook until golden brown.
  4. Top with fresh berries, chocolate chips, more bananas, nut butter, hemp or chia seeds, maple syrup, or whatever you desire!


*Make your own oat flour by blending oats into a fine flour.

For Vegan: Replace the egg with 3 tbsp aquafaba. The texture of the pancake won’t be as fluffy, but it will still work!

For Gluten FreeUse gluten free oats.
