Kid friendly – Gluten Free Banana & Oat Mini Pancakes

When my young son wasn’t able to eat gluten and wheat for a period of time, I had to look for alternatives when it came to pancakes for the kids. Even though he can now eat wheat, these banana and oat mini pancakes are a weekly breakfast option at our place that the kids (and we) love!


Makes 12 mini pancakes.

  • 1 Banana
  • Cinnamon (light sprinkle to your taste)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • Milk of choice (only if needed)


  • Mash 1 banana, sprinkle cinnamon and stir through.
  • Slide banana to one side of bowl and crack one egg into clear side.
  • Beat the egg well and fold together with the banana.
  • Pour in rolled oats and combine well. Mixture should be wet and lumpy.
  • If the mixture seems too dry, add another 1/4 – 1/2 mashed banana or add a little milk of your choice and stir through.
  • Set aside for 5-10 mins to let the oats soak the wet mixture through. In the meantime warm a pan on low-medium heat, and melt a knob of butter.
  • Drop spoonfuls into the pan and flatten out.
  • Brown on each side and serve warm, drizzled with maple syrup.

Super easy, fast & yum!
