Flourless pancakes with a fluffy texture and irresistible flavor

Fluffy Flourless Pancakes Recipe


Fluffy Flourless Pancakes are a delightful twist on traditional pancakes, blending quickly in a blender to create a tender, light texture. This gluten-free recipe offers a healthy alternative, perfect for a satisfying breakfast treat.


For the pancakes, you’ll need:

  • 4 cups old fashioned rolled oats (use certified gluten-free oats for a gluten-free option)
  • 2 ½ cups milk or non-dairy milk
  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 heaping tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Use an immersion blender to process until very smooth. Alternatively, place everything in a blender or food processor and process until very smooth.
  2. Ideally, let the batter sit for 15-30 minutes to allow the oats to hydrate. I have cooked them right away, but the pancakes turn out better and fluffier if it sits. So just sit down with your coffee and read the paper. (Tell everyone it’s mandatory…part of the recipe!)
  3. Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick pan over medium heat. When hot, grease with oil, coconut oil, or butter, and pour the batter on the griddle. Cook about 2-3 minutes per side. (Makes about 30 pancakes.)


  • This recipe makes about 30 pancakes, but it can easily be halved or freeze leftovers for weekday mornings.
  • For peanut butter banana pancakes, add 1/4 cup – 1/2 creamy peanut butter to the batter before blending.
  • Great add-ins while cooking: chocolate chips, blueberries, raspberries, banana slices, or white chocolate chips.
  • Top with maple syrup, homemade blueberry syrup, or spread with peanut butter or Nutella.

  • Can I make these pancakes ahead of time?
    Yes, you can make a batch ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator or freezer for later consumption. Simply reheat in a toaster or microwave.
  • Can I substitute ingredients in this recipe?
    While the recipe works best as written, you can experiment with different types of milk or alternative sweeteners to suit your dietary preferences. However, keep in mind that substitutions may affect the texture and flavor of the pancakes.
  • Are these pancakes suitable for vegan diets?
    This recipe includes eggs, but you can try substituting them with flax eggs or commercial egg replacers for a vegan option. Additionally, use non-dairy milk to make the recipe entirely vegan-friendly.
