Banana Oat Pancakes (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)
 
 
Author:
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted (you can use butter instead if you aren't worried about dairy)
  • 1 average-sized banana
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk of your choice (I use oat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1¼ cup oat flour
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, melt the coconut oil (or butter if that's what you're using) in the microwave (takes about 20 seconds). If you are using coconut oil and it's already in liquid form, skip the melting step.
  2. Add the banana to the bowl and carefully mash the banana into the oil with a fork, taking care not to splash the oil all over your nice shirt! ;)
  3. Add the egg, milk, vanilla and salt and mix really well with the fork.
  4. If you don't mind getting a small bowl a little bit dirty, whisk together the baking powder and oat flour and then add that to the wet ingredients. This will ensure the most even distribution of ingredients. If you really want to keep this to one bowl, add the baking powder and whisk it in well, making sure to stir until you don't see anymore little baking powder lumps, then stir in the oat flour and mix well.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once the pan has been heating for 3-5 minutes, pour batter onto ban to form pancakes. I use my large cookie scoop, which makes 4-inch pancakes. The batter will thicken as it sits – if by the time you are pouring the batter onto the pan it is quite thick, don't be afraid to use your scoop/spoon/ladle to press the pancake batter out so the pancakes are not too thick.
  6. Let the pancakes cook on the first side until the edges start to look dry and you have a few popped bubbles starting to form on the top. (There won't be as many of these bubbles as with a normal pancake recipe, but there will be a few.)
  7. Flip the pancakes and immediately press them down to flatten them out a bit. The pancakes have no problem getting nice and thick, but you want to make sure they cook through, so forcing them to be a little less thick is a-okay. Cook until the second side is nicely browned.
  8. Serve with your favorite pancake toppings!
