Banana Oatmeal Pancakes with Blueberry Maple Syrup

In honor of Canada day–and my absurd love of pancakes– we have THE best healthy pancake recipe. It’s served alongside Blueberry Maple Syrup. Canadians, who love their maple syrup, know that 100% real maple syrup is tough to compete with. I would know. My grandparents had their own Maple Syrup Farm. (yum).

Side notes:

1. I have ‘Fight Song‘ on repeat. I don’t even know how many times it has played at this point but it’s good. Also, why do men get bothered by songs on repeat. I feel they do. Is it just me that thinks that? Oh, well.

2. I would really really like to go to Ed Sheeran this week but who wants to babysit on July 3rd? No one. Perhaps I’ll take her with me and throw some headphones on her. Mom of the year style obviously.

**Side Note** Ed Sheeran caps his concert tickets at $72.50.  What a nice guy.

3. I’m going to TAYYYYY. I hope we meet – again – and she asks to hang out with Sarah and I. JK. I actually don’t wish that but i’ll enjoy hanging out with the rest of the T Swift freaks in the world.

4. I go home for the first time in 4.5 months- next week. It’s going to be amazing-and warm. My hair may actually look decent for once in the last 3 months if I can get to my salon.

5. July 4th… what to make, what to make?? I’m having a mini ‘baby’ party. I’ll leave the fun food to everyone else and throw in my own Patriotic Quinoa Salad and some blueberry puddings.

6. It’s a dream of mine to really cook with my daughter someday. Celine is still a bit young but she tries to participate by watching patiently, banging on bowls with a spatula, and not complaining. So this morning I made pancakes with this cute girl, Ellia and things got real. We made a mess, we didn’t eat till noon, and we had a ball cracking eggs!

These are the best healthy pancakes i’ve ever had. I originally found the recipe on ‘Tia Mowry At Home’ but I had to modifiy it so my babes could enjoy them as well. You’ll love them.

The BEST healthy banana pancakes i've ever had. baby, kid, and adult friendly

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • coconut oil for greasing
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  • Add the oats to a food processor and process until they resemble coarse flour. Add the baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Pulse a few more time to mix together. 
  • Mash the bananas in a large bowl until smooth. Add in the eggs and mix well, then add the maple syrup and vanilla and stir. Add the dry mixture to the wet and fold with a rubber spatula until a batter forms. Set the batter aside to set for at least 20 minutes. (This will make them fluffier and allow the batter to hydrate so don't skip this step if you can!)
  • Preheat your pancake griddle to 275' F or medium heat and grease with some coconut oil. Drop 1/4 cup of the batter or one ice cream scoop full per pancake onto the griddle. Cook the pancakes until bubbles appear on the top and pop. Flip and finish cooking. Keep warm on a plate in a 200 degree oven.
  • Meanwhile, over medium heat add your blueberries (fresh or frozen) to a small pot with the maple syrup and cook until the blueberries begin to release some of their juice. You can crush some of the blueberries with a form to help them release their juice as well. Once the berries and the syrup blend together pour over your finished pancakes and enjoy.
  • Pour over your finished pancakes and enjoy.
