How To Make Fluffy Oatmeal Pancakes

  1. Place all ingredients (egg, milk, banana, and vanilla extract first) in the jar of your blender and blend at high speed until smooth, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Let the batter stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before making the pancakes.
  3. Preheat a skillet or griddle on low heat. Melt butter or spray with non-stick spray and scoop about ⅓ cup of batter into the skillet.

Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, about 2 minutes, flip and cook on the other side until slightly golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Use Steel-Cut Oats Instead Of Rolled Oats?

No. To ensure the right texture, I would recommend using only rolled oats, old-fashioned oats, or quick-cooking oats.

Can I Make Them Without Eggs?

I have never done it, but you can try to use a vegan egg (combine 1 tbsp of ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp water and let it sit for 5 minutes), but can’t guarantee the results. An egg is important because it binds the ingredients together.

Can I Use Water Instead Of Milk?

Yes, you can. You can either use regular milk, 2%, non-fat milk, water, or any plant-based milk of your choice. Also, you can use gluten-free oats to make them dairy-free and gluten-free.

How Can I Make Them High In Protein?

Add a couple of scoops of protein powder or Greek yogurt to the batter.

Can I Make The Batter Ahead Of Time?

I do not recommend it. First, the banana in the batter oxidizes, so the batter will turn dark brown, and second, the batter thickens upon standing, so it will be too thick if you make it ahead of time.

Can I Use A Food Processor Instead Of A Blender?

Yes, you can. Food processor, immersion blender, and Nutri Bullet are all equally as useful as a regular blender. What you cannot do is make the batter by hand.

What Mix-Ins or Topping Can I Add?

You can add chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or fruit to the batter, and for toppings, honey, maple syrup, butter, or yogurt work great!
