How to Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

These banana oatmeal pancakes are incredibly easy! Sometimes called 3 ingredient banana pancakes, this easy breakfast requires just a handful of ingredients, a quick mash, and a few minutes to cook. It’s the perfect meal to have kids help with too! (Specific ideas on what they can do below.) Let me break it down:

  • Mash the bananas and eggs together. This doesn’t need to be perfect, but mash any large chunks with the back of a forth.
  • Stir in vanilla and oats. Mix in the oats and vanilla until combined.
  • Cook the banana pancakes with oats. Heat a pat of butter in a nonstick pan and cook pancakes for about 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Serve! These healthy banana pancakes are naturally sweet from the bananas, but we like to top them with a little butter, a drizzle of syrup (a must for my kids!), and a little crunch from seeds.

How to Store Banana Oat Pancakes

These homemade banana pancakes should be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

You can also freeze banana and oat pancakes in a freezer bag, I love using stasher bags for pancakes and waffles.

Toppings for Banana and Egg Pancakes

This healthy banana pancake recipe doesn’t need much in the form of toppings, but if toppings are your thing, then go all out! Here are a few ideas:

  • Greek yogurt – plain or vanilla Greek yogurt will add some filling protein
  • Fresh fruit – berries are my favorite, but sautéed apples would also be delicious
  • Crunchies – add a nutrition boost in the form of hemp or chia seeds or chopped nuts like almonds or peanuts
  • Classic banana oat pancakes toppings – butter and syrup
