These banana oatmeal pancakes are my favorite sweet healthy breakfast. They are really simple but still make me start my day with the right attitude. You can’t have a bad day after eating a pancake tower covered in honey.
For me, my perfect staycation day starts with one of these beauties and a big cup of black coffee. Isn’t it just perfect?
My grandma used to wake me up with the smell of the coffee machine and freshly made brown butter pancakes. That was always the highlight of my lazy Sundays.
This is my healthier version. It doesn’t have any processed sugar — it’s 100% sweetened with honey — and I reduced the amount of flour using whole grain oats to make the batter thicker.
I assure you that you won’t need another banana and oatmeal recipe because this one is foolproof and has been tested along the years by happy tasters (my bf, friends and my cat).
My favorite thing about these pancakes is the smell. The cinnamon and the bananas smell heavenly while mixing the batter. These two ingredients work in harmony and they belong with each other. You can use less cinnamon if you are not a cinnamon-lover, but if you eliminate it the recipe loses a LOT of tastinesses.
- 2 bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp melted salted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp honey
- ½ cup milk
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup self-rising flour
- ½ cup oats
Mash the bananas and add the cinnamon.
In a bowl, add the melted butter, the eggs, the milk, the honey and the vanilla and mix well.
Mix the baking soda, the salt, the self-raising flour and oats.
Pour the bananas into the bowl and mix well.
Add the flour with the oats into the batter and mix.
Cook the pancakes adding ¼ cup of batter in a nonstick pan.
