Vegan Banana Oat Pancakes Tips
I make the oat flour by grinding rolled oats in the blender. If you want to save a step, you can purchase oat flour.
All the ingredients should be at room temperature. If they’re too warm, the oat flour will start to thicken. This will make it difficult to pour the batter onto the griddle.
Be sure to use ripe bananas for this recipe. They should be yellow with brown spots, and no green spots remaining on the peel. If your bananas aren’t ripe, the pancakes won’t taste as good.
Cook these vegan banana oat pancakes over medium heat for about 2 minutes per side. They don’t get bubbles on the surface as much as traditional flour pancakes do, so you’ll need to peek at the bottom of a pancake using a spatula to see when they’re beginning to brown.

Vegan Banana Oat Pancakes
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats or 2 cups oat flour
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 ripe bananas (1 cup mashed)
- 1 1/3 cups almond milk at room temperature or milk of choice
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil at room temperature or avocado oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Place 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats in a high-powered blender or food processor. Process until you have 2 cups of fine oat flour. (Skip this step if you’re using pre-packaged oat flour.)
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Place the bananas, almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla extract in the blender, and process until smooth. Add these wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir to combine.
- Heat a griddle pan over medium high heat. Lower the heat to medium low, then pour circles of batter onto the griddle. Use about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake to get 12 pancakes. Cook for about two minutes on each side, flipping when the bottoms of the pancakes are nicely browned.
- Serve warm, topped with pure maple syrup, sliced bananas, or your favorite pancakes topping.

Can they be frozen?
You should be able to freeze these. You may want to put a piece of wax paper between the pancakes so they don’t stick together.
