3-Ingredient Banana-Oat Pancakes
I don't know about you, but I love pancakes and used to only eat them on the weekend because who has time for all of the frivolities during the workweek? And when I did have them, I felt like I had indulged in something that's not so healthy so I tried to limit how often I ate them. But with my cravings, that's an impossible way to live because 1) why should I limit the things in my life that bring me joy, 2) there has to be a healthier way to make pancakes and 3) maybe the process doesn't need to be as time-consuming.
So I did some research and played around in the kitchen and voila! I cooked up a batch of the yummiest, simplest, and quickest pancakes I've ever had. These pancakes are made with only three ingredients and are ultra satisfying. It's like having a beautiful stack of pancakes to satisfy your cravings and realizing that it's actually a dolled up a bowl of oatmeal so you can't possibly feel guilty. Welcome to the sweet spot.
2 cups oats (can also use oat flour for finer texture in pancakes)
2 cups almond milk (can also use cashew or soy milk)
2 medium bananas
Add oats, almond milk and bananas to a blender and blend until smooth.
Heat a skillet/griddle on medium heat and thinly coat surface with coconut oil or cooking spray.
Pour the batter onto the cooking surface and cook pancakes for 3 minutes on each side.
Remove pancakes from skillet/griddle and top with your favorite pancake combos. I used fresh berries and drizzled the pancakes with a mixture of coconut milk and my berry sauce.
This recipe makes two servings of mini pancakes. If you want to make regular sized pancakes, you'll need to cook them for longer on each side to make sure that the center cooks.
For fluffier pancakes, add a quarter teaspoon of baking soda.
