Healthy banana oatmeal pancakes everyone that are gluten, dairy and sugar free. For the longest time when making oatmeal pancakes I always assumed that rolled oats were gluten free which, they are! However when buying yet another box of oats the other day I noticed right next to it, the same branding company, a new and improved package which was labelled “Gluten Free” which then sent me into a frenzy of questioning.
GLUTEN FREE OATS
As mentioned before no-one in my family is gluten intolerant, slight dairy intolerance yes, one of my daughters, for the rest we are pretty much good to go. However, I am constantly checking ingredients, labels and am extremely hyper on preparing healthy recipes and just generally making healthier choices and that includes gluten free products. Even though it’s not imperative I enjoy for example gluten free bread as opposed to regular wheat or rye. Very surprising because I used to be such a 50% rye bread lover! But health has become a priority in every regard.
- as long as the oats are not contaminated ie grown side by side with fields of wheat or processed in a facility where barley, wheat and rye are also processed.
- bottom line: check the labels
We have been adding egg whites to everything for a very long time! I remember a few years ago when my daughter started her fitness journey she would always discard the yellow of the egg and we (my husband and I) would stand there horrified! Well over time I have understood why she did it and started including it in my baking, these pancakes for example and this fit breakfast. I add them to my oats in the morning as well and we love them (hubby still has not come around but Rome wasn’t built in a day either and with him being authentically Roman it’s easy to understand 🙂
This chocolate banana pancake recipe back in March this year which has some awful pics is a very similar recipe to this one except it has no eggs at all. Not whites not yellows and even though the pics are awful the chocolate pancakes are good. Also made in a food processor and also 10 minutes! I will have to try it again someday with better images 🙂
I have tried this recipe with less egg whites and that was a bad decision so add all the egg whites! I have also tried it with a combination of whites and full eggs and that worked pretty well. Anyhoo….
SUPER SIMPLE PANCAKES
These delicious pancakes are whipped up in a blender in no time at all! The best part is that they are that good even without all the toppings, and fillings. I made too many of these while my husband was away and I ended up storing them in a container in the fridge for that ‘just in case moment’? Yes that one because that’s me! They tasted so good after 2 days in the container I was surprised because every time I make pancakes there are never any left so I didn’t know. However, I took one out the fridge, left it at room temperature for a few minutes, topped it with some PB (hello!) and a drizzle of honey, absolutely AMAZING! You have to give them a try!

For breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snack. Pancakes fit into every mood and occasion and they always taste amazing! They are super simple to make and once you understand the heating when cooking them you will want them on repeat.
When making pancakes it’s always about patience. Set your stove on medium heat. Now, every stove is different so you know your medium. The one plate on my stove is a lot of trouble! When on high it goes blazing crazy high so I don’t go there with that plate. I love it though because it’s right up front so I always start it on medium high and wait for it to heat.
Remember once you have the heat set right you can always move the pan off the heat for a few seconds while cooking just to drop the heat in the pan. This allows whatever you are cooking to cook slower without burning if you move it off for a bit and return it.
To make these pancakes all you have to do is get everything into a blender, whizz it all up and pour into a non stick pan to cook. If you don’t have a blender, use a bowl, wooden spoon and some muscle!

To color these pancakes I used a natural berry beet powder. Simply pour half the pancake batter into a small bowl, add a tablespoon of berry beet powder to the blender, whizz and start cooking. You have a berry color and a plain color. You can also use any other coloring that you want.
Healthy Pancakes Dairy and Sugar Free
- 3 small ripe bananas (the more ripe the better) (or 2 med)
- 6 egg whites
- 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Pinch fine sea salt
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Add all the ingredients into a blender. Blend into an easy not too thick not too runny liquid form. If the batter is too runny add a little more oats and blend again.
- Heat a non stick pan brush it slightly with coconut oil. (Do this for each pancake, just a brush of oil)
- Pour pancake size batter (estimate) into the pan to cook. When bubbles appear on the top slide the egg-lifter underneath to turn them over and cook on the other side.
