Banana Egg Oatmeal Pancakes-2

Have I ever shared how many bananas our family goes through? I buy at least 30 every time I go to the grocery store… and that’s multiple times a week. We love to eat them as a snack, but also to use in our cooking. Like in these breakfast pancakes!

I love these 3 ingredient banana egg oatmeal pancakes because they’re so dang easy to make (my kids can make them!), everyone loves them and I can customize them by adding cocoa powder in one day, or blueberries into the batter. But most of the time, I make them just the way they are because it’s a long standing favorite. And why mess with a good thing??

Reasons to love bananas

I could write a love letter to bananas, but instead, I’ll share some 3 reasons to love bananas.

  • Bananas add natural sweetness to recipes. It’s one of my favorite natural sweeteners to use.
  • Bananas are loaded with the mineral potassium.
  • Bananas give you fiber which can aid in digestion.
  • Bonus reason – they’re so portable and easy to pack along for a kid friendly snack!

This looks like such an easy way to add some protein to a pancake! One question though: How eggy is the texture of the cake? I don’t love the texture of eggs (especially scrambled) and the egg is one of the main ingredients in this dish. Either way, looks good :-).

Reply
Fit Mama August 9, 2012 - 1:05 pm

Mmmm, well you can definitely tell there is egg in there (which I love). It’s not very doughy like most pancakes are. The texture definitely isn’t like scrambled eggs, just… soft and moist I guess? Haha if you end up trying it let me know what you think!

I’m trying this today for lunch! Had a rough morning with my three month old and this sounds perfect and super easy! I did my first pp run with a jogging stroller yesterday and really enjoyed reading your experience too.

Ohhhhhh sorry you had a rough morning yesterday! Hope you enjoyed it for lunch and today goes much better for you. 🙂 How did your first run go with the jogging stroller?

Maggie August 9, 2012 - 2:15 pm

It was so good I had it today for breakfast as well! Def the highlight of a tough day. I think he was over-tired from a bad day of naps. He slept better last night so I feel much more human today. The run went okay but it def changes my stride and getting used to having one hand on the stroller was weird at first. I also went out too strong and was dying on the way back.

Ok, this is a very trivial question but it always interests me, and I think it probably can tell you something about a person’s personality. What that is, exactly, I’m not quite sure. Someday I’ll figure it out and let you know. BUT:

When eating pancakes, would you rather have a fat stack of smaller ones or one giant pancake?

Reply
Fit Mama August 9, 2012 - 1:08 pm

Mmmmmm I guess a fat stack of smaller ones. Wonder what that says about me?

Lauren August 10, 2012 - 6:35 am

You know I’ve been thinking about this, and I think perhaps that you prefer realistic and manageable things OR that you were really good at building towers with blocks as a child.

Me neither! Oh and I didn’t have a very ripe banana though so instead I just blended my banana in my Magic Bullet. It was nice and frothy-perfect for the pancake!

Suzy February 12, 2014 - 12:57 pm

Very delicious and nutritious pancake. I took your advice Suzanne and blended all in my Nutribullet. Perfect batter. I used almond butter as a topping since I was out of Smart Balance Peanut Butter. And I was satisfied with one good-sized pancake. Yummy!

I just made this and I am in college. So easy with little materials and better yet healthy for you! Which is hard to do in college because cafeteria food is not that great for you.
I added cinnamon and a little milk to the eggs. I also added raisins to one to add a little crunchiness. I wonder how chocolate chips would taste…

Chocolate chips would be an amazing addition I bet!

I am diabetic so this is a great day started for me. Next time I may add a teaspoon hemp seeds and cinnamon. Put it all in the blender and was fantastic.
