Banana Oat Pancakes

Morning!

I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes. It’s a quick and easy pancake recipe that makes everyday feel like the weekend. It’s HIGHLY customizable, requires few ingredients and comes together with little mess.

Banana Oat Pancakes 

Ingredients:

Makes three small pancakes for one.

1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats (I use Quaker)

1/3 cup liquid egg whites

1 banana mashed

1 tsp chia seeds (I get mine from the bulk bin at Whole Foods)

Cinnamon to taste, maybe 1-2 tsp, but I really like cinnamon, so I usually end up just dumping a bunch in

Topping:

1 tbsp maple syrup (I use Trader Joe’s 100% pure Maple Syrup)

Sometimes I also top mine with some fat free Chobani or Fage Greek Yogurt, but wasn’t in the mood today.

Instructions:

Mash banana with a fork in a small bowl until completely broken up. Add in oats, egg whites, chia seeds and cinnamon. Mix well. At this point turn stove on to medium-low. My stove is really old, however, and it’s hard to judge exactly how high/low the heat is, so this is where you will have to use your judgement. I let my “batter” sit for a couple of minutes so the chia seeds gel and then pour onto pan in three small circles. Cook for three minutes, flip, cook for another three minutes. Do not overcook.

These pancakes will be perfectly browned on the outside, and gooey and sweet on the inside.

When topped with 1 tbsp of maple syrup, one serving is about 307 calories, 3 grams of fat, 13 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber.

Have a great day!

  2. Hi there excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this require
    a massive amount work? I have very little understanding of coding however I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic however I simply had to ask.

    Thank you!
