Banana Oat Pancakes

These Banana Oatmeal pancakes were born in a moment of mental anxiety. The prior day had gotten away from me and I had failed to get to the store for milk, cereal, bread… some essential breakfast ingredients for a growing family of seven.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed, (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups mashed ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, liquid form (may need to heat to melt)


  1. Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, flax seed and salt in a large bowl.

  2. In a separate bowl mix together egg, milk, water, and oil. Gently stir wet ingredients into dry and combine until JUST incorporated. Add in banana's and stir until combined.

  3. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour batter onto a heated griddle set to 300°F. The pancakes are thick so the temperature needs to be a bit lower so they do not burn.

  4. When bubbles form around edges of pancakes, flip. Serve immediately.
