When life is surrounding you in chaos we barely have time to even pay attention to the needs of our body. Being a college student I truly know first hand how hard it is to make a balanced breakfast in a dorm before classes. Although this is truly a challenge it is so much tastier than eating cafeteria food at my school. Almost this whole year I have spent countless hours searching on Pinterest for the quickest, easiest, and tastiest meal options that fit into my schedule.
I personally hate the texture of oatmeal! I have tried countless recipes and everything from baked to muffins and all the flavors and I still can’t bring myself to eat it because of the texture. I am always looking for more recipes to try so if you have a great one please comment it down below! The only recipe I have been able to enjoy with oats in it is these oat pancakes!
I have tried many recipes that include banana because I want to want to live in Jack Johnsons song and pretend none of my worries really exist. Aside from my dream though, almost every single recipe I have made has came out to runny and burns too quick. That was until I tried this recipe for oatmeal pancakes with banana.
- 1/2 Cup Oats
- 1 Banana
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 Egg
- Sprinkle of Cinnamon ( I like a ton so really anything from a dash to a teaspoon!)
Ok so for the directions its crazy simple. I honestly threw everything into a Ninja Blender and pulsed it a few times. Then either you can pour some of the mixture on a heated skillet of personally I like to use a mini waffle maker. Normally this recipe will make about three small waffles or pancakes.
I recommend trying this recipe out for a great start to any morning. It takes less than ten minutes to make and kids will love it too! I always serve it with a side of fruit to help balance out the meal!
