No Sugar Added Gluten-free Banana Pancakes

These are my favorite gluten free pancakes for sure. I think adding baking powder makes the big difference. They feel like a real pancake and the best part is that there is no added sugar. The bananas sweeten it so you don’t need syrup (but I needed a drizzle).

Hope you enjoy this simple recipe. The whole thing can be made in the blender. No need to buy oat flour- just blend whole rolled oats in your blender.


No Sugar Added Gluten-free Banana Pancakes

Ingredients(3 servings):

• 2 medium ripe bananas (best when they have lots of brown spots)

• 2 eggs

• 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 1 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats, gluten free if desired

• 2 teaspoons baking powder

• ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

• ¼ teaspoon salt

• Olive oil, for cooking


1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend on high until completely smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

2. Lightly coat a griddle with coconut oil, vegan butter or olive oil and place over medium heat. Once pan is hot, add 1/3 cup of the batter to the griddle for each pancake and cook for 2-4 minutes until pancakes slightly puff up and you see a few bubbles along the edges.

3. They brown quickly so lower the heat in the pan. I keep them warm in my toaster oven set to 250 F. Makes 9 pancakes.
