These gluten free banana pancakes require no special flours or wacky ingredients: just whole foods you’ll have in your pantry! NOTE: Recipe updated 7/6/22 to address reader comments.
- 2 cups Old Fashioned rolled oats
- ¼ cup plain or vanilla yogurt (Greek or whole milk work)
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup milk of choice
- 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted (or neutral oil)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar (or maple syrup)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¾ cup mashed very ripe bananas ( about 2 medium)
- Place the oats, Greek yogurt, eggs, milk, melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder and kosher salt in a blender. Blend on high until a smooth batter forms.
- Mash the bananas, then stir them into the blender with a spatula.
- Lightly grease a skillet with butter and wipe off extra grease with a paper towel. Heat the skillet over low heat. Add a few more tablespoons milk to the better until it is still thick but can pour out of the blender. Pour the batter into small circles. Cook the pancakes until the bubbles pop on the top and the bottoms are golden: low and slow is the key! Then flip them and cook until golden on the other side.
- Add another tablespoon or two to the remaining batter and stir so that it is pourable. Cook the remaining batter, adjusting the heat as necessary (the skillet can get very hot on the second batch). Place the cooked pancakes under an inverted bowl to keep them warm. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
