Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

For breakfast this morning Pipkin and his little brother Pipsqueak whipped up this quick and easy batch of pancakes. These pancakes are made from scratch with staples from your pantry: rolled oats, flour, salt and baking soda. The addition of the bananas makes these pancakes really moist and surprisingly fluffy! This is also tasty with the addition of cocoa powder, but you can omit it and it will still be delicious.

These are fancy enough for a weekend brunch with friends, but why confine yourself to breakfast and brunch? These are perfect for dinner, too. Pancakes, anytime!

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 cup rolled oats
2 bananas, roughly chopped
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa (optional)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder

Maple Syrup
Bananas, sliced
Confectioners' sugar


In a food processor, puree the almond milk and rolled oats until smooth.

Add bananas, flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder, and pulse a few seconds more. (Don't overmix the batter!) Let batter rest for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Mist with cooking spray or grease lightly with butter. Reduce heat to medium-low and add 1/4 cup scoops of batter onto the skillet. Cook until air bubbles appear and the underside is golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook another 4-5 minutes.

Top with sliced bananas, blueberries, confectioners' sugar or maple syrup.


Yields: One dozen pancakes


  1. Awesome! These pancakes look delicious! Pipkin and Pipsqueak look like twins! If domo had a little brother(there are collectables that are domos, about the size of Pipsqueak) then that would be a great post! Pipsqueak is my favorite labbit(it is very hard to choose what labbit I like best......) besides Masher!

    1. It *is* very hard to choose a favorite! Pipsqueak's personality has yet to far he is following the other labbits around, getting a feel for the warren. One thing is for sure, he's not too keen on training with Masher McBuns and Doddy Blue...they're hardcore!

  2. Mmmm...pancakes! It's great to find a recipe that doesn't call for buttermilk. Buttermilk pancakes are wonderful, but I have trouble finding buttermilk here, which creates pancake problems. Dr. Duck and his new friend Ginny Pig (she's a guinea pig) might need a pancake dinner tonight to try these out...
