Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats (old fashioned)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts optional

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 bananas very ripe, mashed
  • 2 cups unsweetened plant milk such as almond
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping Options

  • sliced bananas
  • chopped walnuts
  • Coconut Date Syrup
  • maple syrup


  • 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.
