Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup oats
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp yogurt, heaping tbsp
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla or cinnamon (optional)
- 1 tsp butter or coconut oil
- Use your food processor, blender or hand blender and a bowl to prepare the batter. Simply blend everything together until smooth.
- Heat a large non-stick pan to medium, cover with butter/coconut oil and pour the batter forming small, palm-sized pancakes. Reduce the heat a bit (these burn fast if the temperature is too high!).
- Once bubbles come up and the edges are done, flip using a large spatula. Cook until golden brown and then transfer to a plate.
- Serve immediately like this or top with your favorite toppings - fresh fruit, maple syrup, peanut butter or honey and butter.
