Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Updated: Jan 27
Ok, so confession time. I was super busy this weekend and totally forgot that I had some bananas in the kitchen. The kids didn’t even bother having them. As Monday rolled round, those happy bananas were looking quite terrible. But as I touched them, I realised they were perfect for using in a dessert. I thought, banana bread? Nope. The kids have been eating banana bread for months. Then I decided to throw all the ingredients into a blender and make them a super delicious breakfast.
These banana oatmeal chocolate chip pancakes are great for quick and filling breakfasts. They contain lots of fibre, vitamins and they are super filling. They are perfect to feed the kids on busy mornings.
Preparation Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Yields 6 large pancakes
2 ripe large bananas- mashed
3/4 cup unsweetened milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Oil- for greasing a pan
Combine all the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a food processor. Pulse until smooth.
Place a skillet over a stove on a medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to the pan.
Place 1/2 cup of the batter in the middle of the pan and cook the pancakes on a low heat for 3-4 minutes. The top will have a slight film on top of It and it will dry out.
Flip the pancake and cook the other side for an additional 2 minutes. Serve with extra chocolate chips and maple syrup.
