These Healthy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes are easy to make in the blender with just a few ingredients and are full of protein. Fresh fruit and easy flourless pancakes are a delicious and healthy way to start any day.
Did you know that you could make healthy pancakes from just two eggs and a ripe banana?
My mind was blown on this one. My husband saw these two ingredient pancakes on Facebook, and of course, we had to try it out right away with the ripe bananas on our counter. I have to admit I was extremely skeptical about this easy breakfast recipe.
Seriously, pancakes from just that? But you know what? I was proved wrong because they really do look and taste like pancakes. Well, pancakes might be stretching the name slightly. Banana crepes is a little more like it.
What I do know is that these flourless pancakes are delicious and healthy for you. The banana give a little bit of sweetness and texture to the eggs.
The first time we made them with just the banana and eggs. They were the perfect breakfast with a little drizzle of honey on top.
The next time I made these easy blender pancakes I added some vanilla protein powder and rolled oats in with the eggs. The rolled oats give it a slightly thicker texture. Plus, it makes it easier to flip the pancakes when the first side is done cooking.
Eggs and protein powder give these healthy pancakes a double shot of protein for your muscles. Protein is important to better muscle recovery after working out. It also helps your hair and nails grow better.
How to make Healthy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes:
- Add the eggs, banana, cinnamon, oats, and protein powder to the blender.
- Pulse until combined.
- Drop by ¼ cup onto a hot, greased skillet. Cook each side until lightly browned.
- Serve with your favorite topping.
Love chocolate? You have to try these Healthy Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Pancakes with some fresh strawberries on top! They are seriously so good!!!
Healthy flourless pancakes are completely delicious on their own, but I'm all for adding some toppings for a fun breakfast. Here are other toppings that are great on banana pancakes.
- Fresh Fruit - bananas, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries
- Honey Blueberry Sauce
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Peanut Butter or Nut Butters
- Mini Chocolate Chips

what tips do you have for freezing pancakes? thank you! looks so good!
I usually put a piece of wax paper or parchment paper between pancakes when freezing them. You can also line a sheet pan or plate with parchment and freeze them first before putting them in a freezer bag. I hope that helps.
great info - thank you!!
Do you think I could make without protein powder as I've not got any!
They look great!!
Yes, you can leave the protein powder out of these, and they still taste great! I hope you like them as much as we do!
I tried these pancakes this weekend, and I must say they were DELICIOUS! My tastebuds thank you!
Just made the pancakes for our Saturday breakfast and they were really nice! Didn't have the protein powder, still very nice and filling. Will definitely be making these again!
Great idea!! Thank you
I just made these and they were delicious. I used chocolate protein powder and also threw in a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. The texture is different, more French toast-like from the eggs. Next time I would mix a little water with a tablespoon of cornstarch to make the blueberry sauce thicker.
That is too funny because just made a chocolate version of these to share too 🙂 Great minds think alike. How long did you cook the blueberries? Mine were very thick and I didn't add anything but the honey.
These are so good and easy to make! Plus using the blender is always a bonus to my 3 year old haha. Thank you for the recipe ^_^
I just made the Skinny Banana Oatmeal Pancakes substituting 2 tablespoons PB2 for the protein powder. I ate mine with just a little sugar free maple syrup..My husband put peanut butter & maple syrup on his...DIVINE!! They are my new favorite
My daughter's friend is flying home today. This is what's for breakfast before she leaves! Thanks for sharing!
What if you do not have the protein powder? Can you omit or subsititute with something else?
If you do not have it, you can leave the protein powder out. It will not affect the way they cook. Adding protein powder just boosts the protein in your diet!
I had no idea you could make pancakes like this! Definitely going to try this out soon!
Any suggestions for a gal without a food processor (other than getting a food processor)? I have a kitchen aide!
You don't have to use a food processor for these...that's just how I made them. A bowl, a fork, and some muscle power to whisk will work just fine too. I hope you enjoy them.
Is it healthier to use real eggs, or egg beaters?
I'm really not sure...I used real eggs in these.
These look and sound great, Jocelyn! Love the pretty blueberry topping too!
These sound absolutely perfect! I am all about pancakes, and the fact that they are filled with protein makes me like them even more! Pinning for sure 🙂
These look wonderful! My kids adore pancakes, I'm sure these would go down a treat! Where do you buy protein powder? Is it from a health shop?
You can buy protein powder from a heath food store, or from most major grocery stores. I have seen different ones at Walmart and Meijer too. I hope you and your kids enjoy the pancakes.
Great post! Daughter and I have a snow day tomorrow so we will give the pancakes a go! ~Kelly

I will definitely make it!
Ohhhh..... I've never tried oatmeal pancakes before... I bet my family would LOVE them! I pinned so I can make them this weekend... YUM!!
Thanks for the pin Crystelle!! 😉
I made banana+egg pancakes a few months ago. Like you, I was totally skeptical, but they turned out well. I'm not a huge fan of the texture of the egg+banana pancakes, but my toddler was in heaven. I don't usually buy protein powder, but maybe I'll try it again with oats.
Great idea! I'll have to try these!
Let me know what you think of them!! 😉
