Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Oatmeal, a nuturitious pancake recipe made with homemade oat flour and bananas.
Just recently my husband and I have been on a banana kick. Chocolate covered bananas, bananas, in cereal, bananas in smoothies, banana yogurt, and even banana frozen yogurt! Then my husband told me he had never had a pancake with banana slices inside.. Say what?! Sometimes I even put strawberries and apples in my pancakes too. He’s never had fruit in a pancake, so I had to remedy that quick!
You haven’t lived until you have tried banana pancakes. It was a pleasant surprise how well our pancakes turned out using homemade oat flour, it’s a game changer!
Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Oatmeal
We put the banana slices right on top of the pancake as we place the batter into the pan. The bananas get nice and warm and the chocolate chips melt. It’s the perfect chocolate banana combination. Sometimes instead of syrup, we’ll enjoy these pancakes with some a drizzle of homemade nut butter to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes, yum!
How to make oatmeal flour:
You’ll simply place oatmeal into a high-speed blender and process them. Once they are fully processed you will have homemade oatmeal flour. This is a great way to save money and space since you don’t need to actually buy oatmeal flour.
Substitute for Buttermilk
Mix 3/4 cup milk with 1 1/2 tablespoons of vinegar to make a dairy free buttermilk substitute.
Watch this video to see how we make our banana chocolate chip pancakes with oatmeal.
We let the batter sit a little, for about 5 minutes before making to allow the baking powder to do its thing. Once we start seeing it thicken a bit we’ll start cooking the pancake batter to turn it into delicious pancakes!

Silk has been in so many recipes lately. It’s crazy to think that I only thought Silk was for drinking. I’ve also never seen that you can grind up oats instead of using flour.
I actually buy oatmeal just to make oat flour! I love using it this way because the oats are too chewy for me as I was never a fan of oatmeal. LOVE using Silk! We use their Coconut milk all the time and now I’m loving this Vanilla in smoothies! 😀

Just made these & they were some of the worst I’ve every e had!!!!! 😕
I think I see the issue 🙁 Our recipe plugin pulled an extra amount of milk. We just made this to make sure and it turned out great minus the extra milk, we even updated the photos so you can see how they should look. So sorry about that 🙁
It looks so yummy and delicious…
It is so useful for me because I am health conscious and chocolate craving person
