Why are These Oatmeal Pancakes with blueberries Healthy?
I used gluten-free oats as a substitution for white flour in this recipe.
Additionally, I replaced eggs with flax eggs which makes these protein pancakes vegan, and gluten-free. Oat flour is also a great source of fiber and healthy carbs, that keep you full longer.
Then I incorporated ripe bananas in this recipe, which adds the perfect amount of sweetness so no added sugars or sweeteners are required.
Even better? Bananas are full of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to our health.
Additionally, of course, there are juicy blueberries which are also one of the most nutritious berries I can think of.
They are bursting with antioxidants that aid in cancer prevention, anti-aging and are great for brain health.
Ingredients for Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes
You can whip these blueberry oatmeal pancakes up with just a handful of simple ingredients from your pantry.
They’re filled with complex carbs, fiber and protein. Plus, there’s very little clean up required. For these pancakes you will need:
One of my favorite ingredients for breakfast and vegan baking. You can use rolled oats (old fashioned) or quick oats. However, steel-cut oats will not work for this recipe.
Fresh or Frozen blueberries
If you use frozen, you do NOT need to thaw them. Thawing frozen blueberries will make the batter green.
The riper the bananas, the sweeter the pancake. Bananas are another one of my favorite ingredients when it comes to sweetening recipes naturally.
To make flax eggs, simply mix ground flax seeds with water or milk of choice. Let it sit for 5 – 10 minutes until it gels up.
1 tbsp. ground flax seeds + 2 tbsp. liquid = 1 flax egg
Vanilla extract adds subtle flavor that gives pancakes their signature flavor.
Milk of your choice
You can use nut milk, oat milk, or soy milk to keep this recipe vegan friendly.
Baking powder helps the pancakes to rise. You only need a tiny bit!
Equipment needed for Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes
All you need is to add all the ingredients for this recipe to a blender and blend until smooth.
If you do not have a high-speed blender, you can use a food processor as well.
You will need a good non-stick pan to cook these vegan oatmeal pancakes to perfection.
How to Make Blueberry oatmeal Pancakes From Scratch
Nothing beats a homemade recipe, but there’s just something about pancakes made from scratch.
I’ve learned a few tips and tricks along the way, so I wanted to share how you can make the best vegan blueberry oatmeal pancakes ever!
Cook low and slow.
Pancakes can cook fairly quickly and if you use too high heat you will end up with an overcooked outside and undercooked middle.
Add frozen blueberries at the end.
If using frozen blueberries, add them to the batter at the end, then gently fold in, otherwise, it may turn the batter blue.
Coat blueberries in flour. Lightly coat the blueberries in flour before adding them to the batter to prevent them from sinking to the bottom. You can use almond or oat flour here.
Swap blueberries for other berries.
If blueberries aren’t your jam, or you just want to switch things up a bit, other berries and fruits work great in this recipe as well!
My favorites are:
- More bananas
How to Serve Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes
Some of my favorite healthy toppings for these banana oatmeal pancakes are:
- Vegan butter, or ghee (for dairy-free but a non-vegan option)
- Pure maple syrup – who doesn’t love maple syrup on pancakes?!
- Almond butter – adds some extra protein, fiber, and healthy fats
- Yogurt – another source of protein
- Granola – adds fiber and texture (crunch)
- Fresh fruit – adds natural sweetness, antioxidants, and fiber
Feel free to add whatever you like!
How to Store Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes
These vegan oatmeal pancakes will stay good in the fridge for up to 5 days if kept in an airtight container.
They also stay good in the freezer for up to 5 months!
Yes, you read that right- FIVE MONTHS.
That makes this a great recipe to make in bulk for meal prep and just pull the pancakes as you need them. Make sure to wrap them individually before freezing.
To defrost, you can put them in a toaster, reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
