How to make 3 ingredient banana oat protein pancakes
These homemade 3 ingredient banana oatmeal pancakes are not only super delicious, but they are so easy to make! They are single serve, which makes them perfect for a quick breakfast. Here are step-by-step instructions:
Step 1: First, add all the ingredients into a blender and blend on high for 20 – 30 seconds until fully combined. Let the batter sit for 3 – 5 minutes (to thicken).
Step 2: Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Lightly butter or oil the pan with nonstick spray.
Step 3: Next, pour about 1/4 – 1/3 cup of batter onto the hot pan. Cook for about 1 – 2 minutes until the edges are crisp and firm up. Since oat flour is denser than all-purpose flour, bubbles will not form on the tops of the pancakes. To check if they are ready to flip, gently lift with a spatula to see if bottoms are browning.
Step 4: Gently flip and cook the other side for about 1 minute. Don’t overcook them.
Serve your 3 ingredient protein pancakes immediately with banana slices, fresh fruit, maple syrup, nut butter, or honey!
