Yield: 4 servings
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15–25 minutes



  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ c. (75 mL) applesauce
  • 1 c. (250 mL) milk
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) vanilla
  • 1 c. (250 mL) oats
  • 1 c. (250 mL) whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) baking powder
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) ground cinnamon



  1. Mash the banana. Peel the banana and place it into your mixing bowl. Then use a fork to mash it down.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients. Add egg, applesauce, milk, syrup and vanilla to the bowl the mashed banana is in. Stir until all ingredients are blended together.
  3. Add the dry ingredients. Add oats, flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir until they are blended but try to not overmix.
  4. Cook the pancakes. Pour ⅓ c. (75 mL) batter into a prepared frying pan and cook on medium heat for about 4 minutes. Once the first side is cooked, flip over with a spatula. Cook the second side for an additional 3–5 minutes. Move to a plate.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter. If you have a large pan you can cook more than one pancake at once.
