National Pancake Day

It’s no surprise that I love breakfast foods, particularly pancakes. I’m always in search of trying new healthy/vegan recipes sans the loaded sugar and butter. With September being National Breakfast Month, and today being National Pancake Day, I wanted to share a healthy pancake recipe from the current issue of Fitness Magazine.

I was excited to see a vegan pancake recipe in the October issue of Fitness Magazine. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about is the amount of sodium in the recipe, which I omitted completely. I recommend adding a packet of Stevia, or any other add-ins such as blueberries, nuts, or chocolate chips.

Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes

Makes: 8 Pancakes (Using 1/4-Cup batter servings, mine made 14)
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 1/2-C Soy Milk (I used Almond Milk)
  • 1 C Rolled Oats
  • 2 Bananas, chopped
  • 1/2-C All-Purpose Flour (I used Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour)
  • 1 T + 1 t Baking Powder
    1. In a blender, puree soy milk* and oats until smooth. Add bananas, flour, 1/2 t salt*, and baking powder and puree a few seconds more. Let batter rest for 10 minutes.
    2. Heat a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Mist with nonstick cooking spray, then scoop batter into pan in 1/4-Cup increments. Reduce heat to medium low and cook pancakes until air bubbles appear and underside is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook about 5 minutes more. Top with sliced bananas and maple syrup if desired.
