Banana Oats Pancakes

Banana Pancakes are very appetizing, adored by adults and children alike. This recipe is a healthier version that can also be used during detox and weight loss, given it is alternated with other healthy meals.

Though this recipe is usually a great choice for breakfast, I find it also very suiting as a mid-morning or afternoon snack. These pancakes are healthier than most breakfasts which are either too rich in carbohydrates or too rich in fat! Noticeably, we are here using healthy carbs such as oats, fat from the coconut oil and organic eggs, and the protein from the eggs and the greek yogurt.  Ideally, this should be eaten without adding extra chocolate or syrup but if you have a sweet tooth you can opt to serve it with some maple syrup.

I love to eat pancakes on Sunday morning since I tend to have a late breakfast! I also make sure to make extra pancake mixture for the little ones cause otherwise they will leave me with nothing but crumbles 🙂

When trying this recipe try to choose a shallow non-stick pan since the mixture will tend to be stickier than the traditional recipe with flour and eggs. Don’t let this discourage you cause the benefits of eating something tasty and healthy surely outweigh any problems.

Banana Oats Pancakes Step by Step

This recipe is very fast to prepare once you have all the ingredients and a blender in hand.  Firstly, blend the eggs, oats, and spices well. Then heat the coconut oil in a shallow non-stick pan. When heated enough start pouring the mixture into the pan, remembering to divide it into two or more parts.

Alternatively, you can use this recipe to make waffles.

Finally, serve on a plate with Greek Yoghurt and a handful of banana or any other fruit you enjoy eating.

Accompaniments and Sides

This recipe can be served with many condiments. If you don’t like banana one can choose a handful of mango, pineapple, or strawberries just to mention a few examples.

Personally, I like to eat this with bananas between the pancakes and put the Greek yogurt and some berries on top. Occasionally, I will exchange the fruit with some chocolate, maple syrup, or a sprinkle of nuts! Irrespective of these additions, I always eat the pancake with yogurt. This adds protein to the meal making it more fulfilling and balanced.
