It is seriously so easy to make these healthy banana oat pancakes that are full of fiber for gut health. The eggs and chia seeds are an excellent source of protein and fats to keep you feeling satiated and fueled for the day.
Eggs are also high in a nutrient called choline which is crucial for preventing fatty liver and optimizing bile flow from the gallbladder for optimal detox and weight loss.
I added in ground chia seeds for extra plant-based protein and the essential omega 3 fats that many people are deficient in. The addition of chia seeds makes these banana oat pancakes hearty with a whole meal texture that helps to bind the pancakes together.
My favorite way to eat these healthy banana oat pancakes is topped with plain yogurt and a homemade blackberry sauce for pancakes that is seriously the best.

How to make banana oatmeal pancakes
To make these banana oat pancakes start by mashing 1 banana with a fork then mix in 2 cracked eggs in a med sized bowl.
Use a coffee grinder or nut and seed grinder to make a homemade oat and chia flour. Simply measure ½ a cup of whole oats and 1 tbsp chia seeds into a grinder and grind into until you get a texture of flour.
In a small bowl combine all the dry ingredients together (cinnamon, baking soda, chia, and oat flour) and give a mix before adding the dry mixture to the wet ingredients.
Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together for the banana oat pancakes using a mixing spoon or use an immersion blender to whiz the batter into a smooth texture.
Set aside while you make the homemade blackberry sauce.
In a small pot combine 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries with 1 tbsp chia seeds and 1 tbsp rice malt syrup.
Place the blackberries over medium heat while stirring and mashing the blackberries into a paste. Once the blackberries have cooked into a sauce set aside while you cook the pancakes. The chia seeds will help to thicken the blackberry sauce as it sits.
To cook the banana and oat pancakes lightly grease a frying pan with 1 tsp butter or coconut oil.
Measure out the pancake batter into a heated frying pan using a measuring cup or large spoon to form round pancakes.
After cooking one side of the pancake for approximately 1 to 1.5 minutes flip the pancake over with a spatula to cook the other side until golden brown.
Serve these delicious homemade banana and oat pancakes with the homemade blackberry sauce on top!
