For The Oat Pancakes


  • 2 medium-large bananas, peeled and mashed
  • 2 tbsp melted vegan butter (and a little extra for coating the pan!)
  • 1 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp organic sugar
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the above ingredients and using a whisk or a hand mixer, mix until you have a smooth and even consistency. It is important to make sure the banana is mashed before adding in all of the other ingredients to ensure that it is not clumpy.
  2. In a pan over medium heat coated with a small amount of vegan butter, add the mixture into pancake shapes and cook covered with a lid until you see small bubbles forming. Flip and cook the other side until your pancakes are a light golden brown.
  3. Serve as is or follow the below instructions to make pancake owls.
