Four Ingredient Vegan Banana Pancakes

February 9, 2018


How can something so simple taste so good? These vegan banana pancakes prove that you can eat something quick, satisfying and healthy for breakfast.

Non-contaminated rolled oats are also gluten-free and full of significant health benefits. They are high in fiber which helps you stay full faster and longer. Oats are an excellent source of antioxidants and can help regulate blood sugar.  If that wasn't enough, rolled oats have vitamins, minerals and 26 grams of protein per cup!

For variety, stir in healthy additions to your batter like ground flax, berries or seeds. Top with some unsweetened coconut for crunch and maple syrup for sweetness.

Hope you enjoy these vegan banana pancakes as much as we did. You can also find the recipe for overnight oats below.

If you agree that oats are a healthy, delicious ingredient, you will probably enjoy these Vegan Energy Bars with Oats, Apples and Flaxseed,  Oil-Free Heart Healthy Granola Bars and Baked Oatmeal with Raspberries.
