This recipe was previously featured on Go Dairy Free with permissions from the recipe author (Erika Waz of Tummy Treasure), and for good reason, it is a family winner! The oats give these cakes a "nutty" taste. "Make sure you allow plenty of time for the oats to do their soaking. Serve with extra sliced bananas, and warm maple syrup, if desired."
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 cups rice, almond, or oat milk
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs — beaten
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil [use canola, extra-ligh olive, coconut, or grapeseed oil for soy-free]
  • 1 ripe banana — mashed with a fork
  1. In bowl, pour milk over rolled oats; let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. In another bowl, stir together flours, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Beat eggs, oil, and banana together; add to dry ingredients along with milk/oats mixture, stirring just until mixed (if batter is too thick, add a little more milk).
  4. Heat a large greased skillet over medium to medium-high heat or a griddle to 350ºF.
  5. Pour in about ¼ cup batter for each pancake and cook for about 3 minutes or until bubbles on top break but do not fill in, and bottoms are golden and set.
  6. Turn over and cook for about 30-60 seconds longer, or until nicely set and golden brown.
  7. Hold pancakes in a 200ºF oven until ready to serve.
