Here’s a 1-bowl banana oat pancakes recipe that’s vegan and gluten-free. They are healthy, tender and naturally sweetened using coconut sugar. So you can feel good eating a pile of pancakes for breakfast.
Certainly this isn’t my first stab at delicious vegan pancakes. And banana pancakes especially are a fave of mine to create. But, what I love most about this recipe is just how easy they are to make. This vegan pancake recipe is totally fuss free – all you need is a bowl.
Simply toss the ingredients in a mixing bowl (It’s a base of oats, chia seeds, mashed banana, oat milk and coconut sugar). Mix to combine and cook on a frying pan. Next thing you know you’ve got warm and chubby banana oat pancakes that everyone will love, whether you’re sharing with kids or adults.
Now, let me tell you exactly how to make these Vegan Banana Oat Pancakes so you can enjoy them pronto!
The ingredients for making these Banana Oat Pancakes are simple and straight forward, and likely you already have them in your pantry. For this recipe you will need,
Simply mash the bananas and toss into a bowl to combine. You don’t even need a blender for this recipe. In 15-20 minutes you will have a perfect pancake consistency for cooking.
No doubt these pancakes are a healthier alternative to the traditional. Made with gluten-free oats it’s a recipe you can feel good about indulging in – and even sharing with your kiddies.
In fact, there is absolutely no flour in this recipe at all. Only oats! As for the milk, I’ve used oat milk in this recipe to replace traditional. So, it’s totally vegan and gluten-free. You can also use almond or soy milk in this recipe if you don’t have/aren’t able to find oat milk.
As I mentioned before, it couldn’t be easier to make these easy banana oatmeal pancakes. Simply toss the ingredients in a bowl to combine and wait 15-20 minutes to thicken.
And you can even prep the batter in advance and leave covered overnight in the fridge. Come morning you’ve got a sweet batter ready for cooking.
To cook, bring a non-stick skillet to medium heat with a splash neutral oil. Add a large spoonful of the pancake mixture and cook each side for 1-2 minutes, or until golden and browned. Continue this process until you have no more batter left.
You can keep the pancakes warm while cooking by popping them in the oven on low heat. Cover with a tea towel to ensure they don’t burn.
Pancakes can also be reheated by popping in the toaster for a couple seconds to warm. This is great when you’re enjoying pancakes for one, and there’s some leftovers.
