Breakfast, lunch, supper, or snack these Oatmeal Banana Pancakes are great. Perfect fresh or made ahead for snacks on the go.
My favorite way to eat these might be an afternoon on the go snack. Hand-held, made with oat flour, ripe bananas, extra protein milk, pecans, and chocolate chips. They make a great “healthy” snack!
If you want a real treat make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich using two of these pancakes as the “bread”! So so good, the sweet of the jelly with the peanut butter and banana.
Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
This recipe is great 2 ways. Traditional pancakes with butter and syrup or as a snack. My favorite is covered in peanut butter with a sprinkle of powdered sugar at snack time!
- over-ripe bananas
- oat flour
- baking powder and salt
- chocolate chips and pecans
- I mix these by hand and leave small chunks of banana in them, but you can always use a mixer if you prefer a smoother batter.
- Quite honestly the mix-ins are endless – make them the way you like. Try coconut, a different kind of nut, dark chocolate, peanut butter chips……
- I use Fairlife milk for the extra protein since I mostly eat these as a snack. Regular milk works just as well in this recipe.
