Make The Oat Flour (Optional Step)
Finely grind the oats into a ‘flour’ consistency. I use a food processor and grind them up for about 30 seconds or until it resembles the fine texture of flour.
I buy the Old Fashioned Rolled Oats.
I recommend doing this step if you do not own a high-speed blender.
Make The Pancake Batter
Add the oats, banana, baking powder, salt, almond milk and vanilla to a blender and blend on high until the batter is lump free and smooth.
I am a huge fan of almond milk and use it for my coffee, cooking and baking!
Of course you can use any type of milk in this recipe but to keep this a clean eat, use a dairy free milk.
Though baking powder and vanilla extract are not necessary in this recipe it does make a big difference.
Your pancakes will rise and get fluffy due to the baking powder, watch them rise once you flip them!
Vanilla extract adds another layer of sweetness.
Pan Fry The Pancakes
Heat up a non-stick pan with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil on medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot turn it down to medium and add the batter.
I use a ¼ cup measuring cup to pour the batter into the pan to ensure the pancakes are equal in size.
Make the pancakes like you would usually, once you see a few bubbles forming on the top, it is time to flip them then allow them to cook for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
Keep the heat on medium to not burn the pancakes.
Serve up the pancakes with some berries and real maple syrup.
