Easy-to-Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Easy-to-Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

This is a simple recipe that isn't too sweet and doesn't require eggs or sugar. The pancakes have a nice banana flavor that goes well with oatmeal.
They're also good for diets, since they're full of fiber!

Ingredients: 1 serving

3 tablespoons
1/2 large (if small, use 1 whole banana)
Cinnamon (or cocoa powder or roasted soy flour)
1/2 teaspoon
Peanut butter
1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons
Sliced bananas (from the leftover banana above)
4-5 slices


1. Combine the oatmeal, banana, cinnamon, and peanut butter in a mug cup.
2. Using the back of the fork, mash the bananas and mix well for 2-3 minutes. It's okay if small chunks of bananas remain.
3. Once it is well combined, add milk and mix again. The batter should have a thicker consistency than a pancake batter.
4. Thinly grease a small frying pan about 18 cm in diameter with oil. Pour the mixture from Step 3 into a round shape.
5. Slowly cook the pancake for about 4 minutes on low heat. Flip it over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. When it starts to brown nicely, it's done.
6. Serve on a plate with sliced bananas and enjoy.
7. The pancake is sweet if the banana is ripe, but have it with honey or maple syrup if you want more sweetness.
8. The pancake in the picture is cinnamon flavored, but you can vary it by using cocoa, roasted soy flour, or tea leaves instead.

Story Behind this Recipe

I added my own touch to a scrambled banana recipe which I found on a non-Japanese recipe site.
