To further make it more interesting and delicious, please follow the cooking tips listed below. Here are handy tips to keep your quick bread extra fresh and enjoyable every time:

  • Banana: Another key ingredient of this recipe is none other than the ripe bananas, both bananas and oats are easily available. Banana adds creaminess and natural sweetness to the quick pancake recipe, along with adding the moisture needed for the dry ingredients bind together. 
  • Milk: I tested this recipe with my homemade 5-minutes almond milk recipe, however any milk product, both dairy or nondairy, would work great.
  • Oats: It’s easy to pulse oats in a blender or food processor to make oat flour. When making your own oat flour, it’s recommended to use either rolled oats or quick oats. Steel cut oats are minimally processed, so they require milling equipment to grind. 
  • Vegan: This recipe is dairy free and egg free. Use your favorite non dairy milk alternative to keep this pancake recipe vegan.
  • Gluten free: No flour is used in this quick bread preparation, so this pancake is gluten-free. Even though oats are gluten free, certified oats are recommended if you are on a strict wheat free diet.
  • Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness to accommodate your taste preferences. There is a natural sweetness from the banana taste blended into the oatmeal pancake base. The sugar content is kept to a minimum, so feel free to adjust the amount of maple syrup to suit your liking.
  • Consistency: First of all, the batter of the pancake must be consistent, silky smooth, and neither too thick nor too thin. The batter will produce thin pancakes, but they should not look watery.
  • Toppings: You can serve this recipe with your favorite choice of pancake toppings like maple syrup, jelly, peanut butter, chocolate chips, or fresh fruit.
  • Make ahead: These pancakes can be stored in the fridge or freezer. So, if you have made extra pancakes, do not worry. Meal prep ahead of time for a tasty meal the next day. Quickly rewarm the pancakes in the microwave or stovetop.
  • Storage: You can keep the pancakes separated using parchment paper or wax paper to avoid sticking. To ensure freshness, the oatmeal pancakes should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 5 days or up to 3 months if placed in the freezer. Allow to thaw in the fridge overnight and then reheat to your liking.

Storage: Coconut oatmeal pancakes can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days or frozen with parchment paper in between each layer for up to 3 months.

Raw pancake batter is not recommended for longterm storage because the baking powder has already been activated and the thin pancakes will be even less airy.

In addition, the pureed banana will begin to oxidize and the batter will start to brown.
