Oatmeal Blueberry Banana Pancakes

I made these this morning instead of oatmeal for the boys, they were “scrumptious” as my 5 year old described them.  I often try to avoid grains but once in a while, if we’re going to have some, this is a great recipe.  I’m making them again tomorrow morning, so easy and a big hit.  I got the recipe from this book and tweaked it a little.  There are some great recipes in this book and if you live in Halifax, you can purchase it from Hydrostone Osteopathy.  Otherwise it’s a little more pricey to order online with shipping costs it totals around $36 from www.WholeLifeNutrition.net.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of thick rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups almond, rice or hemp milk
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 small banana, lightly mashed
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tsp vanilla (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Use coconut oil for the pan

Makes 5-7 pancakes

Directions:

  1. Grind oats in food processor, coffee grinder or Magic Bullet. Place ground oats, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl and stir together.
  2. Combine wet ingredients (milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, and mashed banana and stir together.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together.  Be careful not to over mix batter.  Gently fold in the blueberries.  Add more rice milk if batter seems too thick, mine was just right.
  3. Heat skillet over medium-low heat.  Add a little coconut oil and drop the batter by the 1/2 cup full into the pan.  Cook for a couple of minutes on each side.  Watch temperature closely to avoid burning.  Add more coconut oil to make next batch.  Repeat this process until all the batter is gone.

  1. This unfortunately did not turn into pancakes for me 😦 I’m wondering if it was the type of oats that I used 😦 It also was really runny, I had to add some coconut flour to thicken up a little…it was good as “fried oatmeal” 🙂

    • Hi, so sorry this didn’t turn out well for you. I have gotten great results with this recipe but have also tried it a few times when the results were less desirable as you mentioned. It might be the type of oats and I believe letting it sit allowed it to thicken a bit. I haven’t made these in a while but certainly wish I had more helpful feedback for you. Thanks for taking the time to let me know:)
