I grew up having peanut butter on my pancakes. My mom thought it was a good idea to serve pancakes with a thick spread of all-natural peanut butter when we were growing up just to up the protein content of our breakfast and keep us full for longer. I’ve known no other way. I love peanut butter on my pancakes. If you’ve never tried it, you should! Here are some more delicious topping ideas.

Delicious Pancake Toppings

  • Fresh or frozen berries
  • Peanut butter, almond butter or Nutella 
  • Whipped cream 
  • Bananas
  • Chopped nuts 
  • Jam– raspberry, blueberry, strawberry
  • Apple Butter
  • Maple Cream Cheese syrup (see recipe)

What Else Can I Make with Oat Flour?

Are Oat Flour Pancakes Healthy?

Oat flour pancakes can be healthier than a lot of other recipes. Here are some reasons that these oat flour pancakes are healthy. 

-This recipe is sweetened with only bananas and doesn’t contain any white sugar.

-This recipe contains 3 eggs providing lots of protein. 

– This recipe is completely flourless and instead uses ground-up oats. Oats have no naturally occurring gluten and are rich in B vitamins. 

– Eating these pancakes is like starting your day with a bowl of oatmeal but in a different format. A fun way to mix it up!

How to Make Oat Flour Banana Pancakes

  • Put all ingredients in a blender and blend together until very smooth. The batter will be thick.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Use the oven as a warmer for the cooked pancakes.
  • Warm 1 tbsp. of butter or oil in a pan on medium heat and wait until the pan preheats. Using a ⅓ cup measure, pour pancake batter into the pan. Flip when you see little bubbles form on the top of the pancake and the outside edges are starting to set. Flip the pancakes and cook for about a minute on the other side.
  • Once cooked, place the pancakes on a sheet tray in your preheated oven to keep them warm. Continue the process until all the batter has been used.
  •  It may be necessary to add more milk to the batter as you go because the batter thickens up as it sits. This recipe makes 8-10 pancakes depending on their size. Enjoy! 

Tips for Making Oat Flour Pancakes

  • If you are eating gluten free, check that the oats you’re using are certified gluten free. Some oats are processed in a facility that also processes products containing gluten.
  • I made a batch of maple cream cheese syrup to pour over these pancakes and it’s so delicious. You should try it!
  • The milk can be swapped for any non-dairy option.  I choose to use goat milk.
  • Wash everything right away because when oat flour batter dries up it sticks to everything like cement.
