Banana-Oat Pancakes

Start your morning with a delicious, healthy alternative to your typical stack of pancakes. Made with rolled oats, unbleached flour, and bananas, these banana oat pancakes are a breakfast favorite at Kathey Jo’s Kitchen. You’ll find that this recipe is easy, quick, and practical—especially considering that most of the ingredients are likely already found in your kitchen.

I love this recipe because it satisfies my craving for a semi-sweet breakfast in the mornings. It’s like eating a bowl of oatmeal but in a pancake form, which is the best of both worlds! The creamy texture of the oatmeal and the sugary hint of vanilla brings such a wonderful combination. The bananas, being the main event of this recipe, tie the pancakes together into a fluffy, naturally sweetened breakfast for any kind of morning!

Watch these pancakes come together in minutes! I get it, sometimes you really don’t have time to cook a full meal in the mornings. This recipe includes 7 very simple steps that will get you through cooking faster than expected. Personally, I prefer these over your traditional pancakes because of the unique texture. I enjoy the bits of oat in the pancake bread, and I can’t say enough about the delicate banana flavoring. When you’re ready to serve, don’t forget to top it off with a drizzle of maple syrup and sliced bananas or any of your favorites!
