Blueberries add a natural sweetness and are a great add-in for recipes. These blueberry oat pancakes are sweetened with just blueberries and bananas and are a great source of iron and vitamin C!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make these blueberry oat pancakes:

Ingredients to make blueberry oat pancakes. See recipe card for detailed ingredient quantities.
  • Banana: The main source of sweetness for these pancakes. Try to use a banana that is very ripe with several brown spots. The riper the banana, the sweeter the pancakes!
  • Rolled Oats: I love baking with rolled oats as they are packed with nutrition! Gluten-free rolled oats make these pancakes gluten-free.
  • Egg: Used as a binder to help hold the pancakes together.
  • Cinnamon: Provides an extra warm spice and subtle sweetness.
  • Vanilla: Slightly enhances the natural sweetness of these pancakes.
  • Blueberries: Adds small bursts of natural fruity sweetness to these pancakes.
  • Baking Powder: Optional ingredient to help the pancakes be more fluffy in texture.
  • Butter/Oil: To grease the pan.

PROCESS

  1. Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth. 
  2. Spoon out tablespoon amounts of batter and form small circles on a greased pan to cook.
  3. Quarter the blueberries and sprinkle them on top of the pancake circles.
  4. Once bubbles begin to form, flip over the pancakes and cook for a couple of minutes on the other side.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Let the pancakes completely cool and store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. To freeze, store in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag with parchment paper-lined between them for up to 2 months. You may reheat on low heat in a pan or simply microwave for 20-30 seconds, or until warmed through!

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Egg: You may replace the egg with 2 tablespoons of milk or a dairy-free alternative. You may also replace the eggs with flax eggs. To make one flax egg, combine 3 tablespoons of water with 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes until it forms a gel-like texture.
  • Oats: You may replace the oats with all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour. I used old-fashioned rolled oats in this recipe, but you can also use quick oats though the amount needed may vary.
  • Cinnamon/Vanilla: These two ingredients are optional, but add great flavor to the pancakes.
  • Blueberries: The blueberries may be replaced with another type of berry.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder is an optional ingredient, but can be added to obtain a fluffier pancake.

RECIPE NOTES

  • Low heat is very important in this recipe! These pancakes can burn easily if the heat is too high, so make sure to cook on low heat. Also, be sure that your pan is preheated before adding the batter. If your pancakes are browning too quickly and aren’t cooked through in the middle, this is a sign that your heat is too high.
  • I love using this nutribullet blender to blend the ingredients into a smooth batter!
  • Use a very light layer of oil when greasing the pan, wiping away any excess. This helps the pancakes to get that smooth, brown color.

    Another winner. My two year old ate three and then asked for more! Based on the long cook time due to the low heat, I will make in a larger pan next time so I can cook more than three at once.
