These Easy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes are made with soaked oats and mashed bananas, which gives them incredible moisture and an extra boost of fiber! They're an easy, healthy pancake recipe that is freezer friendly and perfect for school mornings! Includes step by step recipe video.
Add oats to a medium bowl. Pour hot water over top and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
In a large bowl, mash banana with a fork. Add the soaked oats, buttermilk, egg, honey and vanilla and whisk until combined.
Add the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and whisk just until combined.
Heat a non-stick griddle to medium-high. Spray lightly with non-stick spray and scoop pancake batter into rounds on the hot griddle. Let cook for about 3 minutes, until golden brown, then flip and cook until golden brown on the reverse side. (*Note that the soaked oats make for a moist pancake, but you want to sure they are still cooked through)
Remove and serve immediately with bananas and syrup or as desired.
*If you prefer a thinner pancake, just add a touch more milk to thin the batter.
