There’s not much to say about this one and I am sure it’s been done a thousand times before, but this is my take on oat pancakes or as I like to call then Three Ingredient Lazy Oat Pancakes. Why? Because this recipe is literally only 3 ingredients. Unless you want to consider vegan butter and maple syrup as ingredients, then it’s 5 ingredients.

About This Recipe
I started making these, not to be healthier, but literally out of pure laziness. So I was craving pancakes but didn’t have any store bought pancake mix and didn’t want to go out and buy some. I also didn’t feel like trying to figure out how to make pancakes using flour and baking soda and etc…
I remembered seeing that you can make pancakes from oats and had gotten accustomed to eating oatmeal and bananas anyway. So I thought why not just make it into a pancake? It of course took numerous tries before I really perfected them. At least in terms of how I like them.
And hence, three ingredient lazy oat pancakes are born.
So here we are. I must warn you, these are not as sweet as your average pancake. If you’re expecting IHOP style pancakes, then sorry to say, but you are not in the right place. These pancakes are really good in their own unique and special way. Also not to mention healthy. Just dress it up with maple syrup and fruit!
So measurements do not have to be exact but I have included them at the bottom of this post. I started by putting a cup of rolled oats through a food processor or blender. Usually a food processor is better for turning it to an oat flour but to each their own. I then add a super ripe banana and nut milk.
Note in the photo above I used a frozen banana that I had to microwave to soften it. You can just use a non frozen banana. I just almost always have frozen bananas on hand. The nut milk I used is an unsweetened almond milk but you can use whatever you want. You can even just use water.
So this is IMPORTANT. The more liquid you use the flatter your pancakes will be. So if you like a denser, thicker pancake then use less liquid. If you like a flat and light pancake then use more liquid. I prefer a flatter pancake.
I kind of feel like everything is self explanatory at this point but for the purpose of the food blog: Put some non-stick whatever in a pan and fry how you would normally fry pancakes. Im using non-dairy butter here.
Now get yourself some maple syrup and enjoy!
