While these pancakes aren’t as fluffy as your average short stack since they don’t have flour, they do happen to be completely vegan and gluten-free. (Bonus: This easy pancake recipe delivers six grams of fiber per serving , so you’ll feel way more satisfied than other carb-heavy brunch entrees.) Top your flapjacks with maple syrup, berries, nuts or sliced banana for extra flair.
Two-Ingredient Easy Pancake Recipe
Prep time: 8 hours (soaking time)
Cook time: 10 minutes
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced banana (1/2 an average banana)
2 teaspoons coconut oil or butter
- Put oats in a bowl. Cover with one inch of water and let soak overnight, or at least eight hours.
- Drain the oats thoroughly. Put drained oats in a bowl along with the banana. With an immersion blender, blend ingredients until smooth. (You can also throw the batter in a regular blender.)
- Heat a bit of coconut oil or butter in a frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Put a tablespoon-sized amount of batter on the pan to make a silver dollar-sized pancake. When small bubbles form around the outside of the pancake, flip it over and continue to cook the other side until it’s golden. Repeat with the rest of the batter. Top pancakes with maple syrup, fruit, nuts or any other topping.
