  1. If you don’t have oat flour you can simply add some rolled oats to a blender and blend until you get a flour-like consistency.
  2. You are more than welcome to use almond flour for these 🍌 Healthy Banana Pancakes as I tested it and it works. I used 1/4 cup almond flour for one medium banana, but if your banana is large you might need to use 1/3 of a cup.
  3. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon for additional flavor.
  4. You could absolutely add 🍫 chocolate chips to these Healthy Banana Pancakes as well.

Common Questions

can I make oat flour?

If you don’t have oat flour you can simply add some rolled oats to a blender and blend until you get a flour-like consistency. I used rolled oats the other day and I personally like this texture way more as it’s definitely more fluffy and less mushy.

what other types of flour can i use instead of oat?

You can use almond flour in this recipe as well, about 1/4 cup almond flour for one medium banana. I haven’t tried coconut flour, gluten-free flour or whole wheat flour, but I’m sure they would work. Add a bit at a time until you get the right consistency.

What other ingredients can i add to the batter?

You can certainly add ingredients like chocolate chips, blueberries, or nuts to these Healthy Banana Pancakes for extra flavor and texture.

How should I store leftover Healthy Banana Pancakes?

Store any leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

can i freeze these healthy banana pancakes?

Yes, you can make a big batch and freeze so you always have these ready for breakfast. Simply take out what you need and reheat in the microwave or toaster.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    Easy & delicious! Pair great with real maple syrup. You will probably need to lower the heat after the first batch. Also the small ones cook up so nicely! Thanks Sneji 🙂
