Light & Healthy Banana Oat Pancakes

If you have a sweet tooth, add the stevia freely. A small drizzle of honey, maple syrup or agave will also sweeten up the pancakes, so be careful when seasoning the batter.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons self-rising white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 packets pure Stevia powder (optional)

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) and pulse to thoroughly blend and form a medium thick batter. Pour mixture into a medium-sized bowl.
  • Spray a non-stick griddle or large frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  • When griddle is hot, add 1/4 cupfuls of batter to the pan. Bubbles will form on top of the pancakes and in 1 to 2 minutes, it will be easy to flip.
  • Cook until both sides are browned.
  • Remove to serving plates.

Recipe Notes

A stovetop griddle is my pancake machine of choice. It's easy, fits on the burner, heats quickly and I can move it around the stove if it gets too hot or cold.
Any non-stick frying pan will work just as well, if you use a large one.
In any case, remember to heat and spray the pan BEFORE adding the batter. You should hear the sizzle and small holes will form very quickly.
When ready to flip, use a small spatula.
