Julie Perkins Blender Oatmeal Pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12 pancakes
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup milk (almond, regular or oat)
  • 1 medium ripe banana (the riper, the better), sliced into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter, plus more for brushing the skillet if needed
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt
  • Optional serving suggestions: sliced banana, berries, maple syrup, almond butter or peanut butter
  1. Preheat an electric griddle to 375 degrees Fahrenheit or place a pan over medium heat.
  2. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients as listed. Blend at medium-to-high speed until smooth, about 30 to 60 seconds. Set aside.
  3. Butter the griddle or pan and using a ⅓-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the hot surface, leaving a couple of inches around each pancake for expansion. Cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, 2 to 3 minutes (you’ll know it’s ready to flip when about ½-inch of the perimeter is matte instead of glossy).
  4. Flip the pancakes, then cook until lightly golden on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, brushing with more butter and adjusting the heat as necessary (if your pancakes are browning too deeply, dial down the heat to medium-low).
  5. Serve immediately with topping of your choice
