Oats Banana Pancakes

Corona made our weekends longer. Remember the days when we used to wish how good it would be to have weekends longer, meaning instead of having 2 days off for the weekend, a day extra over the week would always make us happy, I guess similar prayers from people around the world had brought these days (on a lighter note 😉), now no one has a clue as whether it is a weekend or a weekday. All look similar at least in terms of seeing each other's faces 24/7.
The lock down since two weeks now didn't change much as we are used to buying groceries for the entire week. But yes, a sense of worry always exist when we go out to buy our groceries on weekends. Well, the fruits we bring either turn out to be less or more for the week. With bananas often I end up having extremely ripe ones by the end of the week and now had to use them in something that is healthy at the same time delicious. Thought to make some pancakes out of these ripe bananas. Neither do I use eggs nor all purpose flour which usually tends to make pancakes fluffy. So I tried out some formulas to make them fluffy even when using oats. Sounds interesting?

Ingredients: (Makes 12)
Oats-3 cups
Very ripe bananas-3
Coconut flour- 2 tablespoon
Semolina- ½ cup
Yogurt - 1 cup
Milk - ½ cup
Cinnamon - 2 pinches
Salt to taste
Eno(regular flavor)- 2 tsp.


  1. In a mixing blender, add the oats, dry grind them to form flour.
  2. Add ripe bananas, yogurt and blend well.
  3. To the blender add in coconut flour and semolina, milk. Blend well.
  4. Then pop in cinnamon, salt to taste and mix well.
  5. Pour the batter into a bowl and set it aside for 20-30 mins.
  6. Now check for the consistency. It must be semi thick consistency.
  7. Now place a cooking pan on the cooking top.
  8. Add the eno to the batter, give it a good mix.
  9. Smear butter or clarified butter on the pan.
  10. Pour a tablespoon of the batter and spread it a bit thick to form pancake shape.
  11. Cover and cook for 2 mins and then flip over when you see small bubbles forming on top 
  12. Cook again till the desired brown spots are seen.
  13. Enjoy with butter and honey. Also serve with extra bananas if you desire.

Batter consistency after adding eno is as below.

Pour small ladle full of batter in a pan and spread as below

Cover and cook for a while and then as you see bubbles on top flip over.

Flip and cook for a while smearing butter on either sides.


  • Consistency of the batter is crucial for the right pancakes.
  • Eno could be replaced (I have not tried with the replacement though) with baking soda and baking powder( ½ tsp. baking soda and 1 tsp. baking powder, ½ tsp citric acid) or if you prefer eggs in your pancakes, go ahead and add eggs instead of eno). Eno is proprietary antacid powder from Glaxo Smith Kline. It is a mixture of  Sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and anhydrous sodium carbonate.
Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
