Prep Notes


Cooking Time

10 minutes


2 servings


2 cups rolled oats
1 cup water
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 banana
1 tbsps maple syrup (optional)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsps oil


  1. Place all ingredients except oil into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Let stand 15-20 minutes until batter thickens.
  3. If batter is too thick to pour easily, add a little water.
  4. Heat oil in frying pan or skillet.
  5. Pour batter, by 1/4 - 1/2 cup, into pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  6. For waffles: pour into a heated waffle iron and cook for 10 minutes.


For variations:

  • Try adding chopped walnuts to the pancake batter.
  • Try topping with raw honey, maple syrup, raw almond, or peanut butter, jam, chia seeds, shredded coconut, or fresh fruit.
  • I love adding a little rhum inside my batter for a French touch. That's the way mom always did it!

If you do not like banana or like a thicker batter, you can replace with a chia seed or flax see "egg" like substance. Blend 1 TBSP chia seeds or Flax meal with 3 TBSP water until it becomes thick and gelatinous and add it to the batter.
