In the whirlwind of busy mornings, finding a breakfast that’s not only delicious but also nutritious can be a daunting task. Fear not, for we bring you a breakfast delight that’s both super and duper – Super Duper Oatmeal Banana Pancakes! Packed with whole grains, fiber, and the sweet goodness of bananas, these pancakes are a surefire way to kickstart your day.
Oatmeal pancakes are a healthy and hearty breakfast that are packed with nutrients. Oats are a good source of fiber, which can help to regulate digestion. They also contain protein and vitamins that can give you sustained energy throughout the morning. In addition to the protein in the oats themselves, eggs and milk contribute additional protein to the pancakes.
What we love about oatmeal
Oatmeal is a whole grain, which means it contains all the nutrients of the grain kernel—the germ, endosperm, and bran. This makes it a nutrient-dense food, and they are a filling option that will help you to avoid mid-morning snacking.
The best part about oatmeal pancakes and why you should choose them over regular pancakes is that they are lower in sugar. Unlike many other breakfast options, oatmeal pancakes are made without adding any extra sugar.
Another important benefit of oatmeal pancakes is that they are relatively easy to make. You can either make them from scratch or buy a mix from the store. If you make them from scratch, all you need is some kitchen and pantry staples like rolled oats, milk, eggs, baking powder, salt, vegetable oil, flour, and fruit for topping.
There are many ways to change up the flavors of your pancakes. We added bananas since we already added them to the pancakes, but you can add apples, strawberries, blueberries, the options are endless. You can even add in fried fruit and nuts.
Did you know that dried cranberries are jam-packed with antioxidants and nutrients that can provide numerous health benefits. Just a handful of dried cranberries a day can help keep your heart healthy and help improve digestion. They will also be delicious on these pancakes 😉
How Long Will the Cooked Oatmeal Pancakes Last?
Cooked oatmeal pancakes will last for about two to three days in the fridge. To extend their shelf life, you can freeze them for up to three months. When it comes to reheating, simply pop them in the toaster, air fryer, oven or microwave.
Oatmeal pancakes are a healthy and delicious breakfast option. They’re packed with fiber and protein, and they’re also low in sugar, so let’s make some, shall we?!
