This Blender Banana Pancake recipe is super simple to make with minimal, whole ingredients! Gluten-free, low-calorie, and with a vegan friendly alternative, these pancakes are extremely versatile.
On the weekends growing up, I used to love making pancakes with my family. It was a great way to spend time with one another and savor those extra weekend hours together over a delicious breakfast. Sunday morning pancakes are the best kind of pancakes to exist IMO.
As I became more health conscious though, I realized that the pancakes we had been making weren’t exactly the most nutritious. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating a good ol’ fashioned stack of pancakes, but I made it my mission to perfect a stack of ‘healthier’ pancakes to enjoy maybe once or twice or…okay maybe at least three times a week!
Let me tell you, it doesn’t get easier than these pancakes. They are naturally sweetened with banana, are so so soft, and just leave me FEELING good. All you need to do is throw everything in a blender, let it do it’s magic, and voila! You’ve got a healthy and delicious breakfast.
All of my favorite recipes are tasty, easy, and leave me feeling amazing. Instead of feeling sluggish after eating a stack of pancakes, these babies energize me and fuel me for my day. AND they’re only 250 calories for the whole stack!
LOW-CALORIE BLENDER BANANA PANCAKE INGREDIENTS:
First, let’s chat ingredients. To make this Banana Pancake recipe, you will need…
- 1 banana: Obviously banana pancakes are going to need a banana! The banana doubles as the sweetener and the oil used in most pancake recipes, therefore leaving you with perfectly sweetened and moist pancakes.
- 1 egg: The binder of this recipe and also a great protein source.
- 1/4 cup oats: Enhances the texture of the pancakes, leaving you with an actual pancake rather than some banana-omelet like thing.
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda: Lets your pancakes rise to their fullest potential.
- Cinnamon: Gives the pancakes a beautiful flavor which makes them taste EVEN better.
HOW TO MAKE 250 CALORIE BLENDER BANANA PANCAKES:
To make this 250 Calorie Blender Banana Pancake recipe, simply…
- Prep the ingredients. Add the banana, egg, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon to your blender.
- Blend. Blend all the ingredients together, giving the mixture a bit of a shake if you need to before blending again. The batter should be smooth and easy to pour.
- Cook in a pan. Lightly grease your pan. You can pour the batter directly from the blender onto the pan to form several pancakes, and cook at a medium-low temperature. Wait until you see bubbles form on top of the pancakes before flipping, and cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes.
- Serve and top. Serve your banana pancakes with your favorite toppings. I love adding peanut butter, fruit, and extra cinnamon on top, but feel free to use whatever toppings your heart desires.
Thickness: If the batter turns out to be too thick, add one tbsp of your milk of choice or water to help with blending. On the other hand, if it is too thin, add in one tablespoon of oats and blend. Keep adding oats one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
Other flavor variations: The cinnamon in this recipe can easily be substituted to make different types of pancakes. For example, cocoa/cacao powder would be great for chocolatey banana pancakes. Likewise, you could use matcha, pumpkin pie spice, and whatever else your heart desires!
