Light and fluffy pancakes!

Despite these pancakes being made without flour, they are still super fluffy and light. The baking powder is a key ingredient, so whatever you do, don’t skip that! By using a blender, you also get extra air in the batter to make it really light.

Gluten-Free Pancakes

These banana oatmeal pancakes are the perfect option if you or anyone in your family has a sensitive or intolerance to gluten. If that is the case, be sure to check that your oats are GF certified as they are often manufactured in the same places as gluten products.

Can you make them ahead of time?

There are several options to make these tasty banana oatmeal recipes ahead of time:

  • Make the batter the night before. Keep it covered in the fridge and let it warm to room temperature before cooking.
  • Make the pancakes and refrigerate them. Let them cool and cover them. You can reheat them in a microwave with each pancake separated by paper towel. Reheat them in 20 second increments. You can also reheat them in an oven at 350F for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Make the pancakes and freeze them. Freeze the cooled pancakes on a baking sheet then transfer to a freezer bag or airtight container. You can either defrost them or reheat them from frozen.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Allowing the batter to rest will allow your pancakes to puff up better. I’d let it rest for about 5-10 minutes. 
  • Grease the griddle or pan between each batch of pancakes. That will allow the pancakes to brown more evenly on all batches. 
  • If you find that your butter is burning on the griddle or pan or that your pancakes are getting too dark, lower the heat. Sometimes after the first batch, the temperature will need to be modified to accommodate the pan or griddle being on so long.
