Healthy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Two plates of banana pancakes and two cups of coffee.

The weekend is looking extra good with these Healthy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes! They’re naturally gluten free and dairy free as well as whole grain. They’re full of flavor, nice and fluffy, and so good with syrup. And just in case you can’t have grain/oats, head over to my 4-Ingredient Banana Pancakes which are paleo and nut free.

‘Makin’ Banana Pancakes on the weekend or pretend that it’s the weekend, yeah’.  These are great for a lazy weekend morning as well easing the Monday morning blues.  I’m not much of a breakfast person during the week. But sometimes a little something out of the ordinary in the form of pancakes and extra espresso is definitely in order.

Fresh and perfectly light for spring, but definitely not lacking in savory flavor! This simple baked cod is based on something I remember making ages ago.

And I never seemed to have time to make it anyways.
