Reasons To Love These Healthy Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
- Ridiculously easy to make! Just pop everything into a blender, blend it up, and cook like regular pancakes!
- Perfect amount of fluff and moisture. These pancakes are fluffy without being too dry or dense. They are perfectly moist!
- Flavor explosion. The cinnamon in these pancakes really takes them to a whole new level.
- Super healthy and filling. Since these pancakes have hidden protein in them, they will keep you fuller longer and they don’t taste like protein powder!
- High in fiber. Ya gotta love oats for being such an amazing source of complex carbs and fiber. Perfect way to kick start any day!

- Toddler and kid friendly! Kids absolutely love these banana protein pancakes.
How To Make Protein Banana Pancakes
This recipe is one of my easiest ones ever! Just like my Cookies and Cream Protein Shake recipe, you simply pop all the ingredients in the blender to get the perfect pancake batter. Then, cook them on a heated skillet until cooked through! I love adding some dairy-free chocolate chips to mine too 🙂
Toppings For Oatmeal Protein Pancakes
Toppings are probably one of the best parts about eating pancakes in my opinion. Here are some of my favorite protein pancake toppings!
- Georgia Grinders Nut Butter: Cashew butter is out of this world! (use code “shh20” for free shipping on your entire order!)
- Fresh Banana Slices
- Fresh or Frozen Berries
- Shredded Unsweetened Coconut or Flaky Coconut
- Chocolate Chips
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Granola
The options really are endless! Be sure to share a picture of your toppings with me over on Instagram, I’d love to see 🙂
Gluten-Free Banana Protein Pancake Recipe
This banana pancake recipe is egg-free and gluten-free! You just need some gluten-free oats. And I just love how all you need to do is pop everything in the blender!
What Kind Of Protein Powder Should I Use For These Healthy Pancakes?
If you’ve been here a while, you know how much I LOVE using unflavored protein powder for my recipes. This gives my recipes a hidden protein boost without all the added protein powder flavor. For instance, recipes like my Cinnamon Streusel Baked Oatmeal, Cookie Dough Protein Bites, and Copycat Perfect Bars, all use unflavored protein powder!
So, my top suggestion is to use unflavored whey protein powder. I have tested these banana protein pancakes with vegan protein powder and sadly, they did not work. They came out way too mushy. So unfortunately I would say you can’t really sub any other protein powder in this recipe. BUT, you can sub 2 whole eggs to replace the whey protein powder!

Easy Banana Protein Pancakes (Made In The Blender!)
These Easy Banana Protein Pancakes will be your new go-to healthy breakfast! Just pop all the ingredients in a blender, it’s that easy. These fluffy healthy pancakes are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and contain no flour, eggs, or refined sugar!
- 2 Large/Medium Ripe Bananas (or 3 small ripe bananas)
- ½ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (can sub milk of choice or water)
- ½ Cup Unflavored Whey Protein Powder (I don’t suggest swapping any other protein powder here. See Note 2. You may sub 2 whole eggs in place of protein powder)
- 1½ Cups Rolled Oats (or quick-cooking oats)
- ½ Tbs Cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp Pink Salt
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- Optional: ½ Tbs Coconut Sugar
1. Pop all ingredients in blender and blend 30-60 seconds until smooth (I use my Vitamix). Scrape down sides if needed.
2. Grease a large skillet (this is my favorite skillet for pancake making) and turn on medium/high heat. Pour ¼ cup pancake batter on skillet (optional, add on some chocolate chips to each pancake) and cook pancakes 3-4 minutes each side until cooked through.
3. Top with your favorite nut butter, fresh berries, extra banana, pure maple syrup, or toppings of choice! Enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- Protein Powder: I highly recommend using unflavored whey protein powder because it gives these pancakes the perfect amount of fluff and doesn’t overpower them with “protein powder flavor.” I buy mine in bulk on Amazon and it lasts me forever! I have tried using vegan protein powder and they didn’t turn out well. They were too mushy and wouldn’t cook through. You can sub 2 whole eggs in replacement of the whey protein powder!
- Can I omit the protein powder? I have not tested this, but I’m sure omitting the protein powder should work just fine. They whey protein powder gives these pancakes some extra fluff, so if you leave it out just be aware that your pancakes may be a little less fluffy. Let me know if you try this!
