Servings 8


  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp butter or coconut oil – melted
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice – about 1 small lemon juiced
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup of oat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Scant 1 ¼ cup of banana, mashed (about 9.5 ounces or 3 small bananas)


  • Use a small mixing bowl and add the mashed bananas, lemon juice, coconut oil or butter, and honey or maple syrup. Stir until combined totally.
  • Now add the eggs and beat in the mixing bowl. And if you find that the coconut oil goes back to its solid state – put in a microwave for short 20 second or until it is melted again.
  • Take another medium-size bowl and add baking soda, oat flour, salt and spices. Whisk them together until combined.
  • Now pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and with a big spoon – stir the mixture until they get mixed and thoroughly moistened. Make sure that you don’t overmix it.
  • Step aside the batter and let it sit for 10 minutes. You can use a bit of milk or water if you desire to thin out the batter.
  • Now you need to preheat the electric griddle over 350 degrees Fahrenheit or use a non-stick pan/heavy cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. You may need to oil the surface of your pan lightly with cooking spray, coconut oil or butter. (And if you are using a non-stick griddle like I use – then you don’t need to oil the surface of your pan.)
  • When the griddle is hot enough, use a measuring cup and pour ¼ cup of batter on the griddle. Keep some space around the pancakes so that they can expand so easily. Now cook the pancakes for 3 minutes or until you see small bubbles at the edges of your pancakes. Turn them and cook for another 90 seconds or until the pancakes turned brown on both sides.
  • You may need to adjust the heat at this point to keep the surface hot enough and use additional oil if you desire. Repeat the process with the remaining batter to get most delicious banana oat pancakes.
  • Now you need to serve the tasty banana pancakes immediately to enjoy the best taste out of it. Or, you can keep them warm in an oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit as well.
