5 from 1 review


A marrying of two breakfast favorites, pancakes and oatmeal, this super simple recipe is perfect to get the little ones in the kitchen!


  • 2 tsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • ⅔ cup oats (you can also grind these up into oat flour if you prefer a softer consistency)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Heat your oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, add your banana to a medium mixing bowl and mash with the back of a fork until a thick paste is formed.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to the bowls and mix gently until well combined.
  4. Spoon 1-2 heaping tablespoons of your mixture into the pan for each pancake, depending on how big you want them. You may need to do a couple of batches depending on how big your pan is.
  5. Once the pancakes becomes nice and golden brown, flip them over. Once the second side is also golden, dish up and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, dollop of yogurt, fresh fruit or any other desired toppings!


I make these without any added sweetener, I find the sweetness of the banana and chocolate chips to be enough but you could always add a dash of honey or maple syrup if you like them a little sweeter.
