Banana oat pancakes with only 3 ingredients
What do you normally eat for breakfast? Muesli? Toast? Fruits? A smoothie? Porridge? Something savory? What about a yummy breakfast such as pancakes? I mean, why not? Pancakes are amazing and they can be even healthy, when they are made with plantbased wholefood ingredients. Besides they taste very delicious. I love to eat my pancakes in combination with fruits since it makes them even healthier. Some people might fear that pancakes contain too much fat, sodium and calories. But don’t be afraid, my vegan banana oat pancakes are low in fat and sodium and the batter contains just 1 tbsp of maple syrup (you can use any other sweetener).
You might ask why I use oats to make pancakes instead of all purpose flour? Oats taste good, they are healthy, they are rich in fiber, protein, magnesium and especially manganese. They also contain lots of phosphorus, selenium, zinc and vitamin B1. Oats contain beta-glucans which have been shown to contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Beta-glucans is also a type of soluble fibre that slows down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. Oats are furthermore very affordable. All together there are so many reasons to consume oats more often. Use gluten free oats if you have celiac disease.
