These Healthy Banana Nut Pancakes are oil-free, dairy-free and vegan. They are made with whole wheat flour and oat flour. Other ingredients include ground flax seeds, chia seeds, mashed bananas, and walnuts.
For the oat flour, place 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats in a blender and process at high speed for a few minutes until you have a flour-like consistency.
Add all dry ingredients to a medium sized mixing bowl and combine well.
Mash bananas into another mixing bowl.
Add plant milk and with a hand blender or mixer, blend well or until smooth.
Add lemon juice and vanilla. Mix well
Make a well or indent in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients in all at once.
Combine and mix by hand. Be careful not to over-mix or your pancakes will be less tender. Let sit for a few minutes while your griddle is heating.
Lightly spritz a non-stick griddle with coconut oil and wipe away. Heat griddle to 325°.
Once griddle is heated, using a small measuring cup, pour 5-6 small pancakes at a time on to the griddle. Turn after a few minutes when the edges look slightly dry. Continue cooking for a few more minutes or until both top and bottoms are just browned.
Top with sliced bananas, chopped walnuts and your choice of syrup. Try my Coconut Date Syrup for a truly plant-based option.
If you use walnuts, make sure to inform anyone you serve these pancakes to.
