From the start of this simple pancake recipe to the end, you’re looking at 30 minutes, max. Because who really wants to spend all morning in the kitchen?
We’ve all got better things to do, like enjoy a cup of coffee (or an easy keto caramel cappuccino!), or two!

Mix it all together well. Some lumps are to be expected, but not too many.
As you let the batter combine, the oats will soften more.
Tips For Making The Best Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
You might have questions up to this point and that’s totally fine. Pancakes are not hard to make but there are a few things to keep in mind…
- Combine your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet in another. Then combine the two.
- Don’t let them burn. You want a golden glow to them, but not a dark brown for the best flavor
- Let the batter rest a few minutes before starting to cook your pancakes
- If you aren’t going to eat them right away, keep them warm in your oven on a cookie sheet
Are oatmeal pancakes healthy?
They are, indeed!
As long as you’re not piling high the syrup or honey, these banana oatmeal pancakes are a delicious and healthy choice. You can also swap out the sugar for Swerve or another sugar alternative.
What to put on pancakes when you don’t have syrup?
Don’t be sad because you don’t have syrup!
Instead, try putting other healthy options on your pancakes. This can be berries, a tad bit of powdered sugar, or even some homemade applesauce as well.
Also delicious is a think layer of Nutella, jam, peanut butter (we like to go half peanut butter and half butter here to make it creamier), or a bit of honey.
Is there a healthy pancake syrup?
Tough call. The syrup from the store isn’t going to be a healthy option at all. You’d be much better off using real maple syrup or honey if you’re wanting that syrup flavor and taste.
Can I leave my bananas lumpy?
You can but just know that it’s going to affect the texture of your pancakes, too. Some people actually prefer lumpy pancakes, as long as those lumps are bananas!
