Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes Without Banana
Pancakes are probably my favorite type of breakfast and I really enjoy experimenting with them whenever I have time. This time around I decided to make a batch of very simple wholesome pancakes that have a subtle taste of vanilla. And they turned out so so tasty! I used oats instead of regular flour because oats are delicious and provide many health benefits.
There are very few things you need to make this delicious healthy breakfast:
- about 10 minutes
- a food processor, nut grinder or a hand blender
- a non-stick pan or skillet
- and 6 ingredients
Since these are pretty “plain” – you add no fruit or chocolate, they’re pretty versatile and you can “dress them up” with anything you want. You can have them with butter only, with maple syrup or honey, chocolate, fresh fruit or jam – whatever you decide.
Only 6 Ingredients
I made these pancakes with only 6 ingredients that I already had at home, and I’m pretty sure you have them too:
- oats are the flour
- honey will sweeten the mixture slightly
- egg is the binding agent
- yogurt we use to make the pancakes fluffy (in combo with baking soda)
- baking soda
- vanilla for a subtle delicious flavor
When making this kind of pancakes I always grind the oats and make flour with them before mixing. You can do this using a food processor or a nut grinder.
You can also put the whole oats with the rest of the ingredients either in a blender or a bowl and process them with a hand blender until smooth. If the mixture turns out too runny, let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
I hope you enjoy these!
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 egg
- 2 1/2 Tbsp yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp honey
- pinch of baking soda
- 1 tsp coconut oil or butter
- Grind the oats using a nut grinder or a food processor.
- Mix the egg with the yogurt, vanilla and honey in a small bowl.
- Add the oats and the baking soda.
- Preheat a non-stick pan, you'll need low to medium temperature. Cover the surface with coconut oil or butter.
- Using a big spoon or a ladle start making small pancakes, leaving some space in between, so that you can flip them easily when ready.
- When the edges of the pancakes look done and bubbles come up it's time to flip the pancakes, carefully, but quickly. Cook on the other side as well.
- Serve immediately with your favorite toppings!
*The original recipe required 1 tsp of baking soda, and while so many of you liked it, some said it makes the pancakes bitter. I guess it depends on the brand, so I changed the recipe to just a pinch of baking soda/ some baking powder will work as well if you don't have soda.
