Are Banana Oatmeal Pancakes Healthy?
Health means different things to different people. For me, healthy food is about eating real, whole foods, most of the time. So Yes! These Banana Oatmeal Pancakes are about as healthy as a pancake gets.
I like to think of these pancakes as a bowl of oatmeal in pancake form. It’s one of the most delicious ways to your oatmeal; blended with bananas and egg whites. And if you really want to elevate this breakfast, top your pancakes with a fat schmear of homemade almond butter (store bought works as well!).
Oooh! And if you like peanut butter with your banana, be sure to check out my peanut butter and banana power pancakes as well.

- Serve with your favorite pancake toppings.
- Eat and enjoy!
How To Freeze Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
I love making these pancakes on the weekend when I am doing my meal prep. I often make a double or triple batch so I can freeze the pancakes for the next few weeks.
Once you’ve cooked your pancakes, let them cool to room temperature. You want all of the steam to be gone, so you are not left with wet pancakes.
Place pancakes on a rimmed baking sheet, lined with parchment paper and pop in the freezer for one hour. Transfer to a freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to one month.
When you are ready to eat your pancakes, you can either pop them in the microwave for a minute or two *times vary depending on the microwave) or place the in your toaster oven until heated through.
