These easy and delicious pancakes are gluten free, dairy free and free of refined sugars.

Banana Oat Blender Gluten Free Pancakes

There are a few things I am certain of. Like I when I let my dog out, I know she’s going to come back even if it takes her longer than I’m comfortable with. I know that when I’m sick and not feeling well, even at the age of 36, I only want my mom. I know that I feel better about myself when my legs are shaved. I do better on at least 8 hours of sleep, I will never like beets no matter how you prepare them and at the end of the day, my preferred outfit will always be t-shirts and yoga pants. I am also fairly certain (though not without some serious denial) that I feel better when eat a diet void of dairy and wheat. As much as I wish it weren’t the case, my digestive system and sleeping patterns beg to differ.

It’s only been in the last year or so that I’ve taken real stock in the relationship between what I eat and how I feel. Another thing I blame on getting older but it’s the cold, hard truth: the cleaner my diet is, the better I feel. Not rocket science, I know, but as someone who loves food (and not just food that is good for me), it can be a tough pill to swallow. I love fluffy white things and a bowl of ice cream just as much as the next person. Unfortunately, if I eat too much of it, I’m left feeling the effects. So what do I do? Well, truthfully, not much. I do my best to keep it as clean as I can as often as I can and then don’t beat myself up when I do decide to indulge. Sometimes cookies are just downright worth it, you know?

Breakfast might be the place I struggle the most when it comes to eating something that not only tastes good but it is nutritiously a great start to my day. I can only eat so many eggs and smoothies before I want something more. Pancakes and waffles. Enter two of my favorite things to eat any time of the day but both leave a gut bomb and sleeping pill effect if I eat too much. For a Sunday morning when I have nothing else to do but lay around and watch tv, I’ll enjoy them all day long. But for any other day, I need something that is going to leave me energized to tackle a busy day.

Enter these pancakes of beauty- I never new gluten free pancakes could be so hearty and fluffy! Exceding my expectations when I made them, these might be my new go to pancake. If not just for their ease (you make them in the blender) they’re full of goodness- oats, banana, and almond milk. Hard to beat, I tell you!

I used gluten free oats but if you’re not concerned, any oats will work just fine. I also used Califia Farms Vanilla Almond Milk. If you haven’t tried it, you must. It’s hands down my favorite alternative to regular milk and it comes in the most beautiful bottle. I’m such a sucker for good labeling! Hope you all had a great weekend. Happy Monday everyone!!

    These look delicious!! And I’m big fan of California Farms milk products, especially their coconut almond milk!!

  2. Same way with the dog here, sometimes she stays out longer but she always returns! These pancakes look like a lovely way to start the morning. I love that you used vanilla almond milk.

  3. Nicole says:

    Great idea for breakfast. I’m busting these out tomorrow. Thanks!

  4. Monica says:

    Hi I was wondering if you have tried these with an egg substitute and if so which you prefer for the tastiest product?

  5. Taylor says:

    Looks great! How many pancakes does the recipe make?

    will this work in a waffle iron?

    Just made these and they were delicious! Thanks for the recipe :)
    I love this brand of almond milk as well and used the “Toasted Coconut” flavor — 50 % almond milk / 50% coconut milk

  9. Dannielle says:

    Omg just made these and they are amazing!! Like a banana smoothie crossed with a warm bowl of porridge! Will definitely make these again!!

  10. Jay says:

    We have someone in our home that will not eat anything banana. Any suggestions on what to substitute with?

  11. amy Klazek says:

    These were phenomenal. Hearty but fluffy, they cooked up just like regular pancakes! I have been searching for this recipe for a long time! I left the blender on for about a minute to really blend up the oats and there wasn’t even a trace of a flake, you would never know these were made without flour. They are amazing as cold leftovers with butter and brown sugar, jam and peanut butter, bananas and yogurt and make a great breakfast snack on the go!

  12. Natt says:

    Made these today for breakfast. Everyone LOVED them. Deliciously flavorful and no bogged down post-meal fatigue. Thanks so much for posting!

  13. Kelly Cirone says:

    These pancakes have become a staple in our home! I use a flax egg due to my son’s egg allergy and they are delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

  14. Obehi says:

    Amazing! I just made them! Thanks for this awesome substitute for flour pancakes. I used the rest of the 1-minute oats I had in the pantry.

  15. Mina says:

    Does anyone know the nutrition content for one? These are so delicious!

  16. Mina says:

    Does anyone know the nutrition content of these. They are delicious!

  17. Michelle says:

    Loved these!! Thank-you for sharing!! My little guy, who’s 1 1/2 loved them. He was born 3 months early and has a lot of food allergies. Recipes like this make life easier and yummier!

  18. melissa says:

    For anyone looking for an egg substitute….I used about a teaspoon of xantham gum and they held together nicely!! My four and five year olds gobbled them up in no time with a bit of honey! :)

  19. Imi says:

    Hi I’m definitely going to try these! How many does it make?

  20. Naomi Cope says:

    Made these for breakfast this morning, using canned coconut milk (since I didn’t have almond milk). They were delicious!! Since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease almost two years ago, I have really missed the whole grains I used to eat a lot of in my diet. These were as good as any pancakes I made BEFORE I went gluten-free! And so easy to make, I will make them often – thank you, thank you!!

  21. Sangeeta says:

    Wow, I was quite happy with the pancakes I was making before but these have lifted my game to a whole new level! Love how easy it is to just blend the batter up. I didn’t have almond milk, so I threw in a quarter cup of almonds and topped up with water to 1 1/4 cups and they came out great. Perfect for blueberry season here in Australia! Many thanks :)

  22. Laura says:

    I made these this past weekend and, omg, amazing! We aren’t big fans of favored pancakes, but nothing is overpowering here. Just a nice subtle balance. Delicious! Can’t wait for the weekend Thanks so much for the recipe!

  23. samantha d. says:

    I am a pancake nut, and since I have gone GF I haven’t found a pcake that I liked. These are DELICIOUS!!!! My batch only made 8 medium pancakes, but they were amazing. I used coconut almond milk in mine. Thanks so much for this recipe!

  24. Jessi says:

    These are absolutely fabulous! I am on the no flour no sugar diet and these pancakes just made my Saturday morning! I am passing the recipe on to my mom who is gluten intolerant and is always looking for yummier pancake options!

    Thank you thank you!

  25. Mary says:

    I was thinking about making oatmeal for breakfast. Then got a hankering for pancakes. I googled gluten free oatmeal pancakes and 20 minutes later was eating the most delicious and easy-to-make banana oatmeal pancakes. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! My husband loved them, too.

  26. Andrew says:

    Thank you, these were excellent

  27. Christina says:

    Wow I just made these and they are amazing! I love how majority of it was oats. My little sister who doesn’t really like anything healthy loves them! They are so easy to make.

    Thank you :)

  28. Amanda says:

    These are delicious and my whole family loves them (including a 2 and 5 yr old). They’re so easy to whip up! I’ve passed this recipe on to many friends. Thanks!!

  29. Claire says:

    I just have to say, these pancakes are THE BEST! I have made them every single weekend since first discovering them a few months ago – I’m addicted! They’re fluffy, filling and BETTER than regular flour pancakes. These are now a staple around here and I’ve been spreading the word. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

  30. Vanessa says:

    I just made them and they were a hit! I also added pumpkin seeds (grounded up) just to add more nutrition. Thanks for sharing!

  31. Amanda says:

    I commented a few days ago that my family loves this recipe. Just wanted to share that we had them again for dinner tonight, but I didn’t have any bananas on hand, but did have leftover steamed yams….they worked as a great substitute! Yum! Thanks again for this awesome recipe!

  32. Words cannot express my excitement over these!! We’ve tried so many gluten-free pancakes and these are by far our favorite!!! Such a delicious blend of flavors and the texture was perfect. We used a flax egg which worked wonderfully. Thanks so much Kelley! :)

  33. Ashley says:

    I just made this. I make my breakfast the night before because I wake up at 4am. Unforunately, my coconut milk was frozen solid so I had to use real milk. (I usually use the same brand of almond milk because they sell it at Target for a great price) Delicious! I am a huge pancake fan and I am transitioning to eating clean and this will surely be my new pancake recipe. How would you suggest making a chocolate variety of these?

  34. Modesto says:

    I just made these with coconut. It was extremely delicious, thanks!

  35. EBK says:

    Just made this for lunch—Super awesome thumbs up! Really easy, really tasty. Thank you!

  36. Rachel says:

    Just made these and they were so good. Thanks for the recipe!

  37. Rhea says:

    Hi there!!
    I am so anxious to try this tomorrow! But before I do, how many pancakes does recipe make? Thanks!

  38. Kelli says:

    Thank you! These were awesome!! Like you, I find I feel so much better if I stay away from gluten. I have tried a few recipes prior to this that were not nearly as good. I added a handful of walnuts and some frozen blueberries. They were absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to eat my leftovers:).

  39. Sara says:

    Thanks for posting this recipe. I recently found out I have fructose malabsorption so I’ve been searching for recipes that I can use. I made these pancakes today (with some substitutions since I can’t have honey and can use regular milk) and they turned out very good. I posted the recipe on my blog and linked back to you for the original recipe.

  40. Oh my yum!! I made these yesterday morning and shared some bites with my 11 month old baby girl. We both loved them so much and couldn’t stop eating them! We polished off half the batch yesterday and the other half this morning. SO so good, and so healthy!

    Thanks for this recipe. It’s now going to be a staple in our mornings.

  41. Holly says:

    These were delicious and easy to make! I love that the recipe simply uses oats rather than a more complicated gf flour blend. We will definitely be making these again, and often!

  42. DJ says:

    I’ve used this recipe quite a few times and it is my absolute favorite GF pancake ever. No costly blends or hard to obtain ingredients, just things I always keep in the pantry. Sometimes I use maple syrup if I don’t have honey. I throw everything in a measuring cup and combine with my immersion blender. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  43. Meghan says:

    I made these this morning for me and my husband. They were the perfect Sunday morning treat, and they didn’t leave us feeling as sluggish as regular pancakes usually do. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  44. Kathy Plouff says:

    I’m looking forward to trying these; wish I would have had this recipe this morning. I love the idea of using pumpkin puree, add a little ginger with the cinnamon…mmm. I have perfectly ripe bananas, so I’ll probably try it as written first. I’m enjoying unsweetened coconut milk now, so I’ll use it. I’m loving your recipes; thanks so much for sharing!

  45. Erin says:

    I just made these with coconut milk instead of almond (bf has odd nut allergies) and a bit of brown sugar instead if honey (I don’t like the honey we have on hand right now).

    Oh man, were they delicious! Hearty and filling! I ended up with ten nicely sized cakes. Thanks for the recipe!

  46. Kathy Plouff says:

    I’ve made that several times now; once I used half a banana and a few ripe local strawberries, and sliced the other half banana & some strawberries to put on top. I love mixing nonfat greek yogurt and a little maple syrup as a maple cream topping for them.

    I pop a couple leftover pancakes in the toaster, slap some fresh ground
    almond butter between them, and have the perfect pan-sandwich for
    energy before I go to the gym.

    I’m loving it!

    I’m glad I see new comments here; I must try the chocolate version! Adding coconut sounds good, too.

  47. Skye says:

    Wow I’ve tried so many gluten free pancake recipes and they all turn out either looking like a puddle or a scab, lol! I just made these ones for breakfast and I can’t believe how yummy they are. Thank you for this recipe! :)

  48. Cindy says:

    These were so delicious, easy to make and I love how healthy they are. They will be a staple in my house! I cant wait to peruse the rest of your website. Thank you so much for posting.

  49. Kate says:

    I made these today and they were amazing! both my husband and my mom loved them. I substituted cinnamon for mixed spice and used the almonds and water cheat someone mentioned above, I can’t believe how good they were! thanks so much for the recipe. I’m totally impressed that they were so easy to make-I can mess up toast-so it’s nice to know I can make something tasty for breakfast!

  50. Sherrie says:

    These are so delicious! I use chocolate almond milk just to give them an extra little oomph!

  51. Teresa says:

    Finally a delicious GF recipe without starches or nut flours! I substituted half of the ground GF oats with ground quinoa, and that is delicious as well. I’m allergic to almonds, but dairy milk and coconut milk also work great. My whole family loves this recipe except for 1 daughter who doesn’t like anything with bananas. Can I substitute apples or applesauce for the bananas, or will that completely ruin the texture? Thank you for this awesome recipe which has become a staple in our household!

  52. Chelsie says:

    I made these this morning for my family! So delicious, my aunt even asked for the recipe! I did swap out the almond milk for coconut milk, because it was what I had on hand. Great recipe, thanks!

  53. Rachel says:

    Absolutely delicious, though mine came out flat. Any suggestions?

    • Teresa says:

      I started out with this problem, then noticed the batter thickened on it’s own. By the time I got to the last few pancakes, they were nice, thick & fluffy. Let the batter sit for about 10 minutes before you start cooking, and make sure your pan is already warm.

  54. Loretta says:

    This is a great inexpensive recipe – sure beats the $7.99 GF store bought pancake mix!

  55. Simone says:

    Awesome – Thanks! Quick, easy and the best banana/oat pancakes I have ever made, nice and fluffy. I added fresh blueberries! Yum!

  56. Amber says:

    I have made these pancakes two weekends in a row! My husband and I love them. Its like having warm banana bread or oatmeal cookies for breakfast! I’ve been serving them with homemade blueberry syrup/sauce. Great recipe, thanks!

  57. Barbara says:

    I made these on the spur of the moment today. Only took about 10 minutes start to finish! They were delicious! I had almond milk, but used regular organic milk as I needed to use it up before the expiration date. I loved them and cooked the whole batch and will refrigerate the remainder and warm them in the toaster for breakfast the rest of the week.

  58. Giannina Ghersi says:

    My kids loved this recipe and so did I!! Thank you so much :)

  59. Mary Beth says:

    BEST. G-F. PANCAKES. EVER. Oh my! Thank you!! These have changed my life. My 5-year-old is allergic to wheat (and eggs, and milk) so I’ve been experimenting for a long time with GF pancake recipes and I’ve been in tears too many times to count. They either taste like cardboard, or stick to the pan terribly, or both. These, on the other hand, are so good, and so easy to make, and they lift right off my cast iron griddle. My husband said he likes them better than regular pancakes, and that’s saying something. And they are so quick! We have them several times a week.

    For those asking about egg substitutes, I simply use 5 teaspoons of aluminum-free baking powder (yes, that’s a lot, but you need a lot if you want them to rise nicely without eggs). You don’t need the egg to hold it together – the banana is sufficient for that. Hope that helps.

    • Mary Beth says:

      About the baking powder, that’s a TOTAL of 5 teaspoons (not additional). And in case you’re wondering, you can’t taste it. At all. Unless it contains aluminum, in which case you probably will.

  60. Carol says:

    Love this recipe!!! I have made them twice and put plain yogourt on top and fresh fruit or berries. Thank you!!

  61. Meghan says:

    My family loves these pancakes. Do you soak your oats?

  62. jillian says:

    Just wanted to stop by and say THANK YOU for this recipe. I have an 11 month old and we follow baby led weaning and this is her favorite breakfast! I can cook up a batch, freeze them, and have breakfast for days! They are super easy to pop in the toaster oven. Oh and by the way, since my little one is under a year we substituted the honey for agave. It came out great!

  63. Tracy says:

    Thank you for this delightful recipe!! It’s my favorite pancake now. We only had chocolate coconut milk on hand this morning, so I decided to kick up the chocolate! I substituted 1/4 c of the oats for 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder. The texture is slightly thicker, and some folks might like to add a bit more sweetener, but oh man! It’s like a healthy baked goods candy bar!

  64. Yuri says:

    Delicious!

  65. Rachel says:

    These look great. Have you ever tried to freeze the batter?

  66. Abby says:

    These pancakes are awesome! I made them this morning in my new Magic Bullet and it was so quick and easy! I ate mine with peanut butter and it was definitely a win with my roommates. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    I just featured it on my blog and I would love if you checked it out :)

  67. Ugonma says:

    I just made these and they are delicious! My entire family loves them! Instead of using 2 cups of oat flour, I did 1 1/2 c. oat flour and 1/2 c. all purpose flour because I was afraid too much oat flour would make them too dense. I also changed the amount of extract. I LOVE almond extract so I put only 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp. almond extract. Love the recipe… definitely will be making these again!

  68. Kathryn says:

    These are so good that I kept going back to check the recipe to make sure I had it right. I didn’t change a thing and followed your directions. This recipe is definitely me new go to pancake recipe. I make my own almond milk, which makes them even better. Thanks.
