Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt full-fat or 2% work best
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup water or milk of your choice see Notes
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cup quick or rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon optional

Instructions

  • To a high-speed blender, add the ingredients in the order listed.
  • Begin blending on low, gradually upping the speed to high.
  • Blend until it reaches your desired texture (15-30 seconds for more texture, 30-60 for a smoother batter).
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add a tablespoon of butter and spread it around, or spray the pan with an oil spray.
  • Add the batter using a 1/4 cup measuring utensil (I can get three pancakes in a 12-inch pan).
  • Fry until bubbles begin to form in the middle (about 30-60 seconds). Remember, the first batch is always the worst!
  • Flip and fry another 15-20 seconds or until cooked through.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter. You will get about 12 pancakes.
  • Enjoy with butter and/or maple syrup.
