Sweet, thick, fluffy, and incredibly satisfying, Blueberry Banana Pancakes are a delightful family treat. Made with oats and without added sugars, these banana pancakes are heart-healthy, high in fiber breakfast, done in 15 minutes!
Place 1 ripe banana, 1 medium egg, 1/2 cup almond milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a blender or food processor. Blend until you get a smooth mixture.
Add in 1 1/2 cup oats, 2 tablespoon hemp seeds, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and pinch of salt. Blend on high until the batter is smooth (about 1-2 minutes).
Pour the batter into a bowl and fold in 1/2 cup fresh blueberries.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and coat it with cooking spray or coconut oil.
For each pancake, drop 1/4 cup of batter into the pan. Cook 2-3 minutes, until pancake is lightly browned.
Flip carefully with flexible silicone spatula and cook another 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Make sure to coat the pan before every pancake or batch of pancakes to prevent sticking.
Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
Serve immediately, topped with maple syrup, bananas, and fresh blueberries.
Substitutions You can substitute almond milk with any milk. I prefer substituting almond milk with organic GMO-free soy milk, cashew milk or oat milk. Cow’s milk will work too. Coconut milk wont work well here because of the flavors. Instead of quick oats you can use rolled oats. You can substitute coconut oil with avocado oil. Substitute HEMP SEEDS with flax seeds (for more Omega-3's) or chia seeds (for more fibers).MAKE IT VEGAN: Swap egg with flax or chia egg. Use non-dairy milk. MAKE IT GLUTEN-FREE: Use certified gluten-free oats.Tips for storing Leftovers: Keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Pancakes can be warmed in the microwave. They wont be as delicious as when they are fresh but will make a nice snack. To freeze: Stack pancakes in between wax paper and store in a zip-lock bag. Thaw on room temperature and microwave to reheat.As a measure, I used US cup (240ml).Disclaimer: The nutritional information provided is approximate and is calculated using online tools.
