Healthy Oatmeal Blender Pancakes
Yield: 5-6 pancakes
Prep: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
2 ripe bananas
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. baking powder
dash of cinnamon
Add all of the ingredients to your blender and blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and creamy.
Let your pancake batter stand for five minutes. This process is crucial and will be the difference between thin or thick and fluffy pancakes. The oats will begin to absorb the liquid and your batter will thicken.
You can leave the batter in the blender or I like to transfer it to a bowl right after blending so I can make sure to get all of my batter out of the blender.
While your batter is resting heat a skillet over medium high heat. Lightly grease your skillet. I used a non stick olive oil spray.
Once your skillet is hot add a heaping 1/4 cup of batter to the pan. Cook on one side until bubbles form on the top and the bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook until the other side is golden brown as well.
Serve with pure maple syrup and maybe even a little butter if you are feeling wild.
*Make sure you allow the batter to rest for the full five minutes. I tested this many times and the batter needs to get thicker to make the pancakes fluffy and thick.
* You can use any plant milk you would like I had almond milk on hand.
*I like to serve mine with peanut butter and pure maple syrup, this is one tasty combo!
