Banana Pancakes (gluten-free, 100% whole grain, dairy-free)

These banana pancakes are gluten-free, 100% whole grain and completely sweetened with bananas! Think of them as banana bread in pancake form.

These banana pancakes are gluten-free, 100% whole grain, and dairy-free! They use ground up oats instead of flour which results in some awesome non-healthy tasting pancakes! | texanerin.com

That’s right. These banana pancakes have no added sugar, honey, maple syrup… nothing! If you’ve got some bananas that are about to turn moldy… this is what you want to do with them! These are nice and sweet and maple syrup is totally unnecessary (but it’s always nice, isn’t it? ;))

I used peanut butter and chocolate chips to top mine off but honestly, that was just to make them pretty.

And like always, my pancakes don’t use any funky (or funky according to me) gluten-free flours. Just oat flour. Which is just ground up oats. If I could pick something made with whole wheat or whole spelt or oat flour, I’d pick oat flour. Every time. Things just taste less healthy with oat flour!

I’m pretty picky with my pancakes. I don’t like bready ones. Especially whole grain bready ones. So fear not, these aren’t your usual cardboardy whole grain pancakes! They’re soft and slightly moist.

One thing I noticed is that these banana pancakes are pretty difficult to flip in a cast iron skillet. They weren’t sticking; they just fell apart when I tried to flip them over. As soon as I switched to a regular non-stick pan, this wasn’t an issue.

I know that a lot of kids are going back to school this week and next, and what better to prepare them for the day than with some healthy banana pancakes? They’ve got to get their potassium, after all! ;) These pancakes would go over well in the lunchbox as they’re delicious both cold and reheated. They don’t have to know that their dessert is lacking in the added sugar department!

Speaking of back-to-school, I have an amazing back-to-school themed post planned for Monday so be sure to check back! And the entire week will be lunchbox themed. Even if you don’t have kids, I think you’ll like it. :)

Banana Pancakes (gluten-free, 100% whole grain, dairy-free)
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Ready in:
  • Yield: 8-9 medium pancakes

Ingredients

  • 3 small or 2 medium overly ripe bananas (270 grams / 9.5 ounces), mashed
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (95g) oat flour (gluten-free oat flour, if needed)1
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the wet ingredients (bananas through eggs) and stir until well combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour the dry ingredients over the wet and stir just until combined. There might still be some lumps.
  4. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Spray it lightly with cooking spray or lightly butter it.
  6. Pour ¼ cups of batter onto the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes until bubbles start to form around the edges of the pancake.
  7. Flip it and cook for another 90 seconds or until golden brown on the bottom.
  8. Continue with the remaining batter and serve the pancakes immediately.
  9. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers for up to 4 days.

Notes

  1. To make your own oat flour, grind quick or rolled oats in a coffee grinder or food processor until it resembles flour.

    These were delicious! Just what I was looking for, my one-year old is gluten, dairy, soy, nuts and egg white free (I used just yolks instead) and he loved them! And they were just as great for the adults with some real maple syrup…not that they needed it. Thanks for the great recipe!

        I made these (and love them!) And I freeze them and they do freeze well. After I make them I put them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and out it in the freezes. Then when they are just barely frozen I transfer them to a gallon zip lock bag. Works great.

    When I read this I thought here’s another whole wheat recipe that probably takes like card board. Well was I surprised when I tasted these pancakes. I didn’t have any bananas in the house so I took a can of pineapples and blended about 10oz and used then instead. I couldn’t stop eating them. The first one I ate without any syrup, it was good but I tried the second one with syrup and it was even better.

    There was a comment by someone that said she couldn’t eat bananas so this pineapple substitute would probably work for her.

    I ran out of coconut milk to make our usual coconut flour pancakes so searched the net for a gf/milk free option and stumbled upon your recipe.

    These are so fragrant and fluffy AND they were so delicious, both kids ate them without maple syrup!!

      I’m so happy that you all enjoy them, Diana! I haven’t baked these as muffins because I think that they’d be kind of dense. Or do you mean to just pour a tiny bit in each muffin cup so you’d have something like silver dollar pancakes? That sounds fun and might work! I do have a grain-free chocolate banana muffin recipe coming in the next week or so that you may want to check back for. ;) Thanks so much for your feedback!

        I decided to just go for it and try them out as muffins. I figured that pancakes are a quick bread and so are muffins so they should be somewhat compatible. I baked them at 375* for 12-15 minutes. It made 8-10ish muffins. I did add 1/4 c. of whole oats since my bananas seemed to make the batter extra wet this time. They are perfect and delicious. I will be making a triple batch asap! :) THANK YOU for making an easy recipe! It’s hard to find exactly what I want: wheat-free AND sugar-free that doesn’t have a list a mile-long of ingredients. I will DEFINITELY be checking back for your chocolate banana muffin recipe.

        Hi erin! I just finished devouring these are they are to DIE for! Yummy! Scrumptious! And as the BFG would say:
        SCRUM-DIDDLY-UMPTIOUS!

        Yes, I thought you had left off the milk because most pancake recipes have milk in (as well as eggs). I still don’t know how it works without milk or some other biggish amount of liquid, but it does. So can you shed any light on that? Why is it liquidy when there is no 1/2 cup or one cup of milk to make it liquidy?

        I made one little boo-boo though. The vanilla I used was vanilla concentrate and I think maybe that was too strong. Even if it was vanilla extract, I think I would still probably dilute it down. I am not accustomed to using large amounts of vanilla. As soon as I put the stated amount into the batter, I thought: “That’s ALOT of vanilla!” So you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to make pancakes again for dinner TODAY with the vanill adjusted because if they tasted so good with too much vanilla can you imagine how they wil taste when I put the amount I like in?!

        Thanks for a SCRUM-DIDDLY-UMPTIOUS recipe!

          Thank you for your comment! It really made me laugh. :D I’m so happy that it worked out. The batter gets its liquidy-ness from the bananas and the 2 eggs. That’s it! It seemed odd, I know but it works out. And haha. I personally thought 2 teaspoons of vanilla was on the low end. Maybe I need to make some new vanilla? ;) I hope you’ll enjoy the pancakes tonight in your reduced-vanilla version! :) Thanks again for the feedback and the rating!

This time i kept it KISS Keep it simple stupid). i didn’t bother with all the nuts raisins etc, but I had my lime juice this time. My mum loved them. I loved them. I know my nephew would have loved them too. (and I used our vanilla concentrate at 1/4 the bottle strength.) Is it not store bought vanilla that you used? Sounds like you made your own. . . ??

          No, yours are beautiful as is. Really! Once the original tastes fab, you have a platform to do other things with it, though. But what i did anyway, today, I added a spot of red wine (that we usually use in cakes) and a teeny spot of brandy and Jamaican white rum. I’m not supposed to have cinammon, so i ut cloves and ginger instead. and someone passed by the kitchen and when the first pancake went on and asked me if I was baking?! ha haa. i enjoyed those pancakes my friend!!

          Chocolate sounds yummy! I have seen a few choc pancakes online but never tried any. have you come across those that add a bit of swirly chocolate batter (or any different flavoured batter) in a swirl in the centre of the pancake before it is flipped? I have not tried any of those yet. – I have to cut down on the chocolate, though, have discovered raw cacao beans in the local market and we make choc drinks now aplenty – it’s chalking up the calories! :-) – let me know how the chocy ones go.

          Oh, you got to live a little! A bit of honey won’t hurt, will it? Or even just some extra bananas? I guess as long as you don’t go overboard on the sweetners everyday that should be okay, no? I know what you mean, though because once you make something and it tastes good there is the temptation to make it tooooo often! 9I have gone through a bottle of olive oil so quickly with all my pancake making in recent times . . .

    We are a PANCAKE FAMILY. But we’ve also recently found out we’re gluten, soy, dairy and egg intolerant. What to do? Troll the web and find GREAT alternative recipes like yours. I made these pancakes this morning, just substituted chia seeds / water (3T ground chia + 3/4c. water) as an egg substitute and we’re in business. My fussy pancake lovers deemed them GREAT. I’ll be making another batch soon. Thanks so much – we’ll be trying many of your other GF recipes – I DO love to bake too!

        I guess it is gluten in general. I am definitely going to look for lots of inspiration in your archives. Right now I am still in a testing-phase – going gluten-free apparently only helps some people with (skin) condition. It’s worth a try.

    I was so excited to see that you posted another pancake recipe where as you like them non bready like I do and this one was as delicious as all your other pancake recipes. In order to save time in the morning I made the batter the night before but didn’t realize that of course the oat flour would turn it into an oatmeal consistency the next day, but that was o.k. because it just made them easier to flip where as they were thicker and oh my goodness, they taste like your heavenly banana bread in pancake form! Loved the spices and the texture the oats gave them. Thanks Erin!

      Sorry for my slow reply, Heather! I’m so happy that you liked the pancakes. :) I’ll have to try it your way (with making the batter the night before) and see which way I prefer. I’d love to make the batter the night before and have my husband actually cook the pancakes. He gets up much earlier than I do so that would be amazing! Thanks so much for the feedback and the rating, too. :)

        Made a fresh double batch today Erin and the finished product isn’t dramatically different from making it up the night before. I’m sure Mr. T wouldn’t mind making breakfast:)

    Oh heck yes – these pancakes look awesome, Erin! I love that they’re healthy but the texture looks perfect. And I would definitely copy you and top mine with pb and chocolate chips too – is there any other way? :)

    I loved using the ground up oats in my donuts last week, so I know that these pancakes taste awesome. I just wish I had a big plate of them in front of me right now. Why dont you live closer to me again?? ;)

    Any experience using brown rice flour instead of the oat flour? I can’t have the oats.
    Will be making these tonight with the rice flour sub for dinner with homemade Nutella and applewood bacon. I’ll let you know how it comes out.

      I hope it’ll work out for you! I’m afraid that I don’t really have experience with brown rice flour. And I want to have dinner with you tonight! Pancakes, Nutella and bacon. That sounds like the most amazing dinner ever. Enjoy! :)

    Erin, no joke – I just made banana pancakes yesterday!! I love that you topped yours with chocolate chips (and peanut butter, too!). With bananas, you really don’t need much added sugar! I love banana pancakes so much. I hadn’t made them in so long!

    Yum these pancakes look heavenly. Pancakes are my first love since I’m a huge breakfast eater and pancakes were one of the first things I ever made. I know these have got to be great since bananas and chocolate with oats are perfect!

    These look positively amazing! like seriously I would eat them, except for the banana fact. I can detect bananas in anything and they are my number one fruity enemy.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up for you back to school theme. I may need some inspiration since I’ll be in school most of the day (yay afternoon classes – not!). I’ll probably be packing my lunch most days for this semester.

      Hahaha. You leave the best comments! “I would totally eat these – if it weren’t for the main ingredient!” And number one fruit enemy? Bananas were mine, too. I somehow seem to have gotten over my banana allergy. It’s bizarre.

    Forget where I first heard about it, but the best “save” for overripe bananas is to slice them and freeze them. I then use them in smoothies and what ever else I can think of. I found bananas for $.15 a pound one day, so bought 30 pounds, just so I could freeze them.

      That is too funny, Cindy! I do stuff like that all the time. “Oh, berries are 50% off? I must buy them ALL!” Then I have 15 pounds of berries and nowhere to put them. :) Thanks for the tip! I also freeze my bananas for smoothies and “ice cream.” So yummy!

      I do that with ALL my overripe bananas! There is a constant supply of frozen bananas in our freezer. Love it for smoothies and, most of all, banana soft serve!

      This is probably a goofy question, but do you peel the bananas before you freeze them?

        It’s not goofy at all! Definitely peel them. Once they’re frozen, you can’t really peel them. So do it before! :)
