Oat Banana Pancakes (Gluten free)

Filling breakfast pancakes.

I tried to make them as healthy as possible, with the use of bananas I was able to reduce the amount of sugar needed to make them. Also the use of oat flour as opposed to wheat flour makes them gluten free. Would you believe I didn’t use any oil to make these pancakes? Yep! Thank God for non stick pans.

These pancakes are not only healthy but pretty filling, I found two to be enough to jump start my morning.

For the oat flour, I made it myself using some rolled oats and a food processor. Here is a quick how to of the process. Oat flour.

Once the pan is well heated, pour in the batter.
