What are blender pancakes?
The idea of blender pancakes is to throw all the ingredients into a blender, turn it on, and pour the batter straight onto a hot griddle. These pancakes come together in a snap and are super light, fluffy, and incredibly delicious.
They are much healthier than traditional buttermilk pancakes since you are using oatmeal and whole wheat flour (or all-purpose if you prefer).
I love to make these pancakes on weekends or for special breakfast occasions. I put some chocolate chips into my batter for my kids because they think that makes them extra special! The addition of bananas makes it really easy to hide them from the kids if you want to sneak in some extra nutrition!
The best part about making these is that there is no need to mix up your dry ingredients separately or sift anything before adding it to the wet ingredients. In fact, all you have to do is throw everything except for the bananas into your blender, hit puree, and then add the bananas last. You can even dump everything in at once if you want… just make sure that you put the liquids in first!
These pancakes cook up so beautifully light and fluffy and they just melt in your mouth! I love that they are healthy enough for breakfast but sweet enough that my kids will eat them
The batter consistency.
The batter consistency. There are two things that make a pancake recipe fail: the batter is too thin or too thick. If it is thin, the pancakes will be thin and fall apart. If it is too thick, the pancakes will not cook properly and maybe rubbery or doughy on the inside.
This recipe is spot on with the proper consistency of pancake batter. You want a batter that is smooth and slightly runny but still holds its shape when dropped from the spoon.
The flavor. Pancakes do not need to taste like cardboard! This recipe adds vanilla extract and cinnamon to the batter which adds a delicious flavor.
The vanilla makes them taste more like crepes (my favorite breakfast food). I find this recipe does not require any additional syrup as they are sweet enough on their own for my liking.
Blender Oatmeal Pancakes.
These pancakes are gluten-free and dairy-free, with a perfectly fluffy texture.
1 cup rolled oats
1 ripe banana I love to use a spotty banana for extra sweetness!
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey, plus more for topping (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup nut butter or peanut butter, for topping (optional)
Toppings: fruit, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips…you name it! I love to top my pancakes with sliced bananas and chocolate chips.
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until the batter is smooth and creamy. This will take at least 30 seconds of blending. If the batter gets stuck in your blender, add a splash of milk to get it going again. Heat a skillet over medium heat and grease with coconut oil or butter**
