Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes 01

I love pancakes to the moon and back. They’re just so flipping good (yes, that was almost a pun)!

Here’s one of my favourite pancake recipes. Because of the bananas in the batter you don’t need any sweetener, so it’s sugarless! It also happens to be vegan…and it is really low in calories, but don’t worry, what is sacrificed in calories is not traded off for flavour! In my mind, this equals the perfect pancake.

Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

  1. 1 ¼ cup old fashioned oats
  2. ½ cup organic whole wheat flour
  3. 2 tsp. baking powder
  4. ½ tsp. sea salt
  5. 1 ½ cups soymilk*
  6. 2 ripe bananas

*Or a dairy-free milk – I like using this store bought almond milk or my homemade almond milk

Blend all the ingredients in a blender, except the bananas. Now add the bananas and continue to blend (in blender) until the bananas are smooth. Pour onto a hot griddle (lightly oiled with olive oil or coconut oil) and cook. Once the pancake bubbles on one side, it’s time to flip it to the other. This makes a dozen, medium-sized pancakes, serving 4 people.

Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes 03

I love these pancakes with a little bit of peanut butter with real maple syrup…these pancakes are very fluffy and it tastes like a giant marshmallow AND it’s healthy! Soooo good. Okay, I need to stop drooling on the keyboard.

You know what’s weird though? I do not like waffles…in fact, they are one food I really, really don’t like. Isn’t that strange? It’s not really the taste, it’s the texture of all those little squares…I don’t know…maybe I’ve just never had the perfect waffle.

    Yum!! I am having pancakes for breaky today too!!

  2. Jeanette

    These vegan pancakes look so nice and fluffy – and I love that there’s no added sugar!

  3. Tiffany

    You got such great height with these vegan pancakes! Impressive! :D

  4. jenny

    i’m with you…i’ve never cared for waffles :P ha maybe it IS the texture after all =)

  5. Ben

    Beautiful pancakes! I’ve never made vegan pancakes but hey seem easy enough. I will give them a try.


  6. Nora @ Natural Noshing

    I love pancakes! I like waffles but they require more clean-up than the griddle cakes :) GREAT photos, these look delish!!!

  7. Ananda Rajashekar

    Chocolate is my first fav as well, i adore pancakes on sunday and your looks just right on spot wonderful! thanks for stopping by my blog and for ur words or appreciation!!

  8. The Kitchen Noob

    How awesome is that?!

    Turns out I eat a banana and oatmeal every day for breakfast. In fact, I just finished the banana and am staring at the bowl of oatmeal. Looks like I get to try something new tomorrow.

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Liz

    Those look awesome! You come up with the mose amazing recipes – where do you get all that creativity?! :) Maybe I’ll try them this week. Great photography too…

  10. Carlyn

    These were great! I made them for a bunch of people for breakfast and many people asked for the recipe. I added toasted walnuts & chocolate chips to the pancakes when they were on the griddle. I even made them a second time the next day but added an extra tsp. of baking powder which I think helped them be a bit fluffier. I love how healthy these are! thanks!

  11. Katie

    These are so good! We have pancakes every Sunday night and I like to try different recipes. My boys all gobbled these up and I loved the intense banana flavor!

  12. Sharon

    These pancakes look absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to try them! Last weekend we made vegan panacakes with chocolate sauce and banana slices. My son loved them and couldn’t believe that they were actually super healthy! Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe xx

  13. Isabella

    I made this recipe today! Delish! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  14. Anna

    Wow! These were delicious. I substituted sea salt with regular salt since I didn’t have any. & I only had “quick” oats so I used those as well. They turned out great! I halved the recipe as it was only for me and had half for dinner last night and the rest of the batter this morning for breakfast. I used syrup last night and they were really good. This morning however I went crazy and put chocolate chips in them and topped them with peanut butter. WINNER! I loved loved loved these! This is going to be my go to pancake recipe! It’s good for you too — kinda unreal. Thank you so much!

  15. Charissa

    Thanks all…SO glad you enjoyed them! They’re definitely my favourite pancake recipe! :)

  16. Andrea

    I needed a recipe that used only 2 over-ripe bananas and had this one saved in my favorites, so I tried it for breakfast this morning and they turned out AWESOME!!! I’m a pancake fanatic so these are definately going to be a keeper :)

    I love waffles, but pancakes win my heart! Ha and I think that is mostly because it is such a pain to clean my waffle maker. & as for toppings, I usually stick to Earth Balance with maple syrup and fruit :)

    Thanks for the recipe!

  17. Matt

    Seriously delicious!

  18. Katie

    I am bookmarking this and making them TONIGHT! Wow!

  19. Esmesmom

    my daughter and I are vegan and have pancakes every sunday for breakfast and I have tried EVERY recipe out there and none of them are just right, but these were AWESOME! I added a little bit more(3/4c) whole wheat flour b/c they were pretty runny and thin first go round but otherwise these are our new favorite pancakes! can’t wait to make them for my family visiting over the holidays!

  20. Amelia

    These were my favorite pancakes I have ever made! Topped with some strawberry jam and syrup… YUM!

  21. Jagee John

    I love these pancakes …. I have a similar recipe …. to which I add 2 tablespoons of Canola Oil .
    Good Work

  22. Amy

    I just made these. I love them! Very tasty. I made blackberry sauce for them, but I like them so much plain that the sauce might have to wait.

  23. Moxie

    Vegan pancakes! Look delicious!!! One of my children has a milk allergy, so I’m glad to see soy milk in the ingredients. Thank you for posting. Will have to try these!! xx

  24. Megan

    These pancakes saved my christmas! I was put on an elimination diet a month ago excluding dairy, soy, eggs, nuts and so on due to suspected food intollerances in my now 8 week old daughter. These are so yummy and quick to make (i just swapped the soy for oat milk).

    I just made these tonight and subbed buckwheat flour for the whole wheat to make them gluten free. They were delish…and so easy!

  31. Andrea

    These pancakes were great! Best texture vegan pancakes I’ve made. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  32. Jennifer

    Would I be able to use regular salt if I don’t have sea salt. I love to make pancakes, I am excited to make these one morning!

  33. Charissa

    Jennifer~ Of course! Any salt works! :)

  34. Brooke

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, it’s so easy to make and yet they’re the best vegan pancakes I’ve ever had! I have been making them every weekend for my husband and I :)

  35. Maggie

    They look absolutely delicious. I tried the recipe but the pancakes don’t cook enough, even if a cooked them in low temperature for a long time they turn out raw on the inside :( I’m so disappointed… what do you think i’m doing wrong????

  36. Charissa

    Maggie~ I cook mine at about medium heat. I’d say cook them on a higher heat, thin the batter with more liquid, and make smaller, thinner pancakes. Hope that helps!

  37. Maggie

    Thank you! I’m gonna try that :) Hope it works!

  38. Nicole

    Can I use almond meal instead of the whole wheat flour? Or what about rice flour?

  39. Charissa

    Nicole~ I’ve had lots of readers use alternative flours…I haven’t tried it, but I’ve heard good results from them! I’ve heard that buckwheat flour (which is gluten free) works great….I don’t really see almond meal giving it a light, fluffy texture (so I’d say no to that one)…

  40. Mipa

    Wow, these were the bombdiggidy. Such great flavor and texture. My new favorite pancake recipe, seriously. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!

  41. Rachel

    These are honestly my favorite pancakes EVER! I have them at least twice a week! Thanks for the wonderful recipe :)

  42. Catrina

    I put a cup of oatmeal in the food processor while I made the bed and came back to oat flour! I didnt use any whole wheat flour. I did use unsweetened coconut milk and very happy now!

  43. Nastia

    I just made this! And it was really delicious!! Thank you for the recipe! And it’s way more healthier, than any other pancake! :D

  44. Gwen

    Can I use skim milk instead of soy or almond milk? I know they won’t be vegan – but will the recipe still work?

  45. Charissa

    Gwen – For sure! Skim milk will work fine!

  46. Reagan

    I use steel cut oats, as they are less processed. Would I need to adjust the measurements to replace the old fashioned oats?

  47. MB

    I made these for brunch today… we loved them! I added some vanilla and cinnamon. Thank you for the recipe!

  48. Jen

    I am going to make these tomorrow morning for the kids. Will have to use organic milk instead though as it’s all I have on hand. Going to top with PB, raisins and sliced banana!

  49. Charissa

    Reagan~ Hmmmm, I’ve never tried that. If I were to use steel cut oats, I’d cook them first. However, I think they wouldn’t be as light and fluffy. I’m sure the measurements would have to be adjusted, but since I haven’t tried it – I’m just not sure. If you try it, let me know how it goes!

  50. Ileana

    These were delicious! But mine did not come out fluffy like in the picture or how you described. Mine were were flat. Also, do yours come out mushy in the middle! When they looked fluffy, I checked the inside to see if they were down but they looked to be raw. So I cooked them
    Longer…way longer then normal Pancakes.

  51. Charissa

    IIeana~ Depending on your grill/frying pan and/or stove, sometimes you need to cook pancakes longer. These pancakes are more of the “melt-in-your-mouth” kind of pancakes, but they shouldn’t be raw or mushy in the middle. Just keep cooking them till the middle is done. :)

  52. Stacy

    Made these for Sunday breakfast today, they were so good! Thank you for an excellent vegan pancake recipe! I’ve been vegan for 6 weeks and was so happy to find this recipe! :-)
    Question for you: One of my past favorite pancake recipes used cow’s milk with white vinegar added to “sour” the milk, for more of a buttermilk flavor, and it was so good. Any idea if that trick would work with almond milk or soy milk?
    Thank you again!

  53. Charissa

    Stacy~ Yay, so glad! I haven’t personally tried that but I think that’s a great idea – please try it and let me know how it goes! (I know I’ll be trying it now!) :)

  54. Hannah

    This is honestly the best pancake recipe EVER!!!!! I love these! these are not that greasy as the normal onces!

  55. Kerry

    What did I do wrong? These came out horrible. They were chewy and dense, not light and fluffy.. And I followed the recipe exactly.

  56. Charissa

    Kerry~ If you followed the recipe exactly, you may have over-mixed the batter. For pancakes and muffins I always use a very light-handed touch when I’m stirring (and just until mixed). Too much stirring toughens the batter. Try folding the batter lightly.

  57. Lauren @ The Tornadic Kitchen

    Wow these look so delicious! I am going to have to make these for me and the hubby this weekend :)

  58. Leanne

    I know this isn’t a waffle recipe, but Ive been searching high and low for one that is lower in fat and carbs yet vegan. Any idea if this recipe would be suitable for waffles, even if it was altered a bit?

  59. Dawn A.

    I tried these this morning to use up the last 2 ripe bananas. Sprinkled my serving with chocolate chips & topped with a bit of almond butter. They were delicious! My husband even enjoyed his (with just spread & syrup) and he doesn’t like anything “new” the first time out ;-) I’m normally a “1 big pancake vs. 2 or 3 smaller pancakes” girl. I couldn’t get this recipe to cook up well in larger cakes, but smaller ones (as you recommend) turned out perfectly. Thanks for a good, solid recipe!

  60. Charissa

    Leanne~ You’re in luck! I did a variation of this recipe for one of the sites I write for – so here it is: Sugarless Banana Waffles

    Dawn~ Yay! So glad you like it!

  62. Catherine

    Just made these this morning for a crew of hungry boys and everyone looooved them! Seriously – thank you! I too cooked them for longer than usual to get the middle cooked-through.

  63. suzanne

    They came out a little dense…anything to make them fluffier?

  64. Charissa

    Suzanne ~ With any pancake batter it’s important to stir with a light hand, because sometimes if you stir too much the batter will be a little tough. Another tip, if you’re not vegan, is to add an egg.

  65. Paco Rich

    These tasted very good, but when I was mixing in the blender, it seemed too watery… is that the same with everyone else? I’m not vegan, so I used 0% milk, would that have made a huge difference? I really like the fact these did not have added sugar, which is good for our low carb diet.

  66. Charissa

    Paco ~ 0% milk might be a bit watery. If you’re not vegan, why not use 2% milk? If it’s still watery, you may be using too much liquid, so just reduce it a little bit. So glad you like them!

  67. Raquel

    I tried these this morning and I must have done something terribly wrong. They literally cooked for about 15 minutes and the middle was still soggy. They were super thin… and not very tasty… I have no idea what I did… they smelled really great…just didn’t turn out for me :(

  68. Charissa

    Raquel ~ It’s funny because almost everyone loves these pancakes, yet once in a while, someone says it doesn’t turn out. I have found that since I’ve switched to using a non-stick pan everything comes out well – where as, using a normal pan would make even fool proof recipes not cook properly. If the batter is too thin, add more oatmeal or flour. Make sure your bananas are ripe (so they’re sweet and have lots of flavour!). Your pan needs to be hot enough to cook the middle through as well. Hope these tips help!

  69. Renee

    These turned out perfectly and were so delicious!!

  70. Megan

    Every time I make pancakes I make a new recipe because I’ve only found one other recipe I love enough to make more then once. These pancakes are perfect. They brown wonderfully, the texture is different from pancakes, they were moist but it was great. They can certainly be eaten plain but I used pure maple. They also have a buttery taste to them.

    My 1st 2 were thin and hard to flip but after the batter sat for a few minutes the next ones turned out fluffier.
    My variation was adding 1/2tsp cinnamon, 1/4tsp vanilla extract, for the milk I used half almond and half rice both vanilla flavored. I had some trouble flipping so I just used a butter knife to lift them up enough so I could get my spatula underneath without squishing them together. I used canola oil spray so they wouldn’t stick.
    Also I ground the oatmeal separately added everything into a bowl except the banana and milk, pureed those 2 together then added it to the dry ingredients. I have a single serve blender so it was easier that way.
    Having hard time not finishing the rest off.

  71. Lisa

    I just want to say thank you for this recipe! My son has severe egg and milk allergies so I am always on the hunt for vegan recipes that my husband will also eat so I don’t have to cook allergy free and normal recipes. This one is a hit and we’ve made it multiple times! I noticed the pancakes are a bit dense as well (but still really good so not a huge issue) and saw in the comments it said not to overmix it…but in the directions it says to blend it, which is far from a “gentle hand”. Which way should we go here for best results?? :)

    Thank you again!

  72. Charissa

    Lisa~ I blend the mix on the lowest setting on the blender till it’s smooth…or you can do it by hand…the main thing is to get the bananas smooth, so you could blend those up separately and add it to the rest of your ingredients after it’s pureed.

    If you find they are still a bit dense, what I do is thin out the batter with more “milk” to make thinner, less dense pancakes. Hope that helps!

I’m sure it was some sort of error on my part, lol!

  86. Charissa

    Becki- Sometimes I thin out the batter and make the pancakes smaller if I feel they’re not cooking well. This usually does the trick!

    Very nice and Caribbean, will definitely make again. I love the burst of banana flavour, maybe add a little rum for flavour next time. They don’t sit heavy in my stomach like regular pancakes made with eggs, flour, oil & sugar; plus the leftovers make a nice snack.

    So tasty! I only got about 6 small pancakes… I think I like my pancakes bigger than most people..Even my dad who is always protesting my vegan recipes loved them! (But I did add huge dark chocolate chips, which really made these amazing!)

    WOW! I just made these for dinner! (It’s Saturday and my husband isn’t home, so they the hell not, right?). Pretty good. They did cook a bit differently than regular pancakes, but they were pretty easy to make and yummy to eat. xo Kimmay from Hurray Kimmay

  129. K

    Have you tried making these with water? With the bananas, I imagine they’re still pretty flavorful this way?

  130. Charissa

    Crystal~ I love the idea of cinnamon.
    K~ No, I haven’t…but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work…let me know how it goes!

  131. Amie

    Just made these this morning, yum! I added some mini chocolate chips. For those experiencing mushy middles….I did too at first. There are a lot of bananas in this recipe! I cooked mine at a lower heat (300 instead of 350 on my griddle) and it helped immensely. They were still moist in the middle (more than a buttermilk pancake) but it was just the banana. These are just wonderful and my 3 year old LOVES them! Thanks for a great recipe.

  141. Ryan

    I just whipped these up in our Baby Bullet blender that we use for homemade baby food for our daughter. I subbed in skim milk & used one banana because I like banana flavor, but I don’t LOVE banana flavor. Also, I added 1tbsp of milled flaxseed to bump up the health factor and they were fantastic! I’ll definitely use this recipe again and again for my family. They passed the ultimate test because my 7 month old baby loves them too!

  142. Eleonora

    My 3 yr old absolutely loves these pancakes, he gets excited helping me mash the bananas, then watches me flip them in the pan, can’t make them fast enouhg and it takes only minutes. He says banana pancakes are his favorite, no syrup, just plain pancakes. The adults love them too.

    My pancakes did not cook all the way through and are mushy. Any suggestions to fix this?

  146. Charissa

    Chelsea – Thinout the batter with more milk and pour less into the pan. This will make the pancake thinner & cook all the way through. Also, make sure to use a good non-stick pan…it makes a world of difference!

    Came accross this recipe on my “Healthy Cooking” board on Pinterest looking for another pancake recipe I had tried previously. So many good comments; thought I’d give it a try for the evening meal. Turns out I have deleted this recipe from my board so that I do not accidently make these pancakes again. These were not great at all. It was a shameful waste of time, energy, and supplies. I could have made a bowl of oatmeal easier and in less time with much less mess in the kitchen. They tasted of nothing but oatmeal and banana! Which is ok if that is what one is looking to eat. They were dense and mushy in the middle and left an odd after taste. Followed directions exactly. Sorry, this recipe hit the trash bin.

    I just made these and I thought they were great! I drizzled some organic maple syrup over and topped them with some vegan butter.. Wow! I’ve been craving pancakes for months, I gobbled them down so quickly. The small hint of banana was fantastic (I love banana pancakes). Next time I’m going to add some banana chunks to make it taste even more to my liking. Thank you much!

  182. Monica

    These were excellent. I used almond milk, added a sprinkle of cinnamon and a handful of blueberries at the end (pulsed a few times).
    When I tried making them on a cast iron griddle, it kept sticking and not cooking through so I switched to a non stick pan and problem solved. I think I may have overblended the batter as mine were still thin and a little dense but they tasted great.
    I’m not vegan but I try to go meat and egg-free whenever possible. This was fast, easy and healthy. Thanks!

    These were pretty good but were a bit too salty for my taste. I think in future I would either omit or drastically reduce the salt.

    LOL mine looked nothing like that!!!! I used white flour & also cooked them on a cast-iron skillet – they stuck like CRAZY and didn’t turn out well but they are still yummy!

  193. Charissa

    Ali – I’m sorry yours stuck! Cast iron is tricky. I now only use non-stick pans.

  194. Banana Pancakes with Cashew Cream |

    […] 1. Blend the oat flour with the baking soda, the plant milk, and the banana until smooth. Note: If you have a Vitamix or strong blender, you don’t need to make the oat flour first. You can just combine the oats, baking soda, milk, and banana, and blend on high until smooth. If your blender isn’t overly powerful, I would suggest blending the oats first to get them really fine like white flour. Then add the other ingredients. If your batter becomes too thin, add a small amount of ground flax seed to thicken it. 2. Pour the dough on a lightly oiled skillet and cook on medium heat until golden brown. Flip to the other side until golden brown. 3. Top with peanut butter, cashew butter, cashew cream, sunflower butter or almond butter to add some healthy fats and proteins— and berries or other fruit.  (original recipe from: HERE) […]

  195. Courtney Bettingen Miller

    I have been making these since 2012, with slight variations due to what I have in the house and they are a favorite. Hints: grind up the oats first in the blender, silver dollar size is best to avoid gummy middle and add a little more of the other ingredients if the bananas are larger. YUM!

    Excellent recipe, I’ve tried many vegan pancakes that have epically failed, this one turned out excellent!
    Any tips on using less oil? I have a cast iron pan..

  201. Charissa

    Chana – I used to cook with a cast iron pan and sadly, I felt like I needed more oil for that one. Now I use a ceramic non-stick pan (which is healthier than the normal non-stick) and I hardly ever have to use oil.

  202. Kathy

    I love these pancakes – it’s the only recipe I use now. I’ve even started buying extra bananas to ripen so that I can make these – they’re that good. Thanks for the great recipe.

  208. Dustin

    I didn’t have baking powder so used about 2Tbs of ground flax seed and they turned out great!

  209. Clover

    We really like these. But 2 teaspoons of baking powder has 880 mg of sodium, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt has 1,180 mg. So with 4 servings, the sodium is 515 per serving. Or with 12 pancakes, it would be 171 mg of sodium per tiny pancake. I left out the added salt to help bring that level down.

  210. Anna

    These pancakes were really good. As a vegan I am always looking to a great vegan pancake recipe. The only thing that replaced was the almond milk. I used oatmilk. However, my pancakes didn’t come out as fluffy with height as yours look. What do you think ? Should I add more baking power next time? I love pancakes but I love them nice and fluffy. Thanks for the recipe.
