Banana Oat Pancakes

Written by chanie on July 22nd, 2014

We’ve all had leftover bananas. I bet you even have some sitting on your counter right now. Surrounded by fruit flies. Don’t you just hate that???

Summer fruit flies kill me. I’ve tried every trick in the book! (And if you have any others, send them my way!). I can’t have my bananas sitting on the counter, so I’ve got to think up ways to use them up. The thing is though, I’m not the biggest banana person. I like bananas – freshly ripe and creamy. But when I start to mix them into other foods – I get picky.

Banana bread is good by me. Banana oat muffins too. Smoothies are a given. Especially this one. Why not pancakes?

I make pancakes for breakfast at least once a week – my kids can’t get enough. Even my husband has gotten in on the pancake fun as we explore creative¬†flavors. These are our favorite!

When I served these up for breakfast one weekday morning, I got a 2 out of 3 from the kiddies (since one of them detests bananas, and there was no hiding them here!)

The great thing about this recipe is that they’re not altogether bad for you. Chock full of oats and potassium-rich bananas, they offer more than the standard pancake – and they’re even dairy-free! Although if you want to go even healthier, try these incredible 4-ingredient Paleo banana pancakes from kitchen-tested. They’re amazing!

    Perfect for breakfast, and easy to make too. At least that’s one thing I don’t have to rely on my wife. ;)

    LOVE Bananas (I never have them lying around – I have to buy lots of extra if I want to ripen them and bake with them) and love banana pancakes – used to be what I ordered at Ihop every time (when I went to Ihop – in my past life :-)

  4. I love bananas, not sure why I have never mixed them into banana pancakes, my son would devour these!

  5. Ronnie Fein says:

    I assume you mean quick oats? I love oat pancakes. I will try these with peach, cant eat bananas!

  6. I love making banana pancakes. I buy extra bananas just so I can have some spotty brown ones left for pancakes and muffins.
