Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes with Peanut Butter Banana Sauce

Start your morning off right with these healthy and hearty blueberry oatmeal pancakes! Although these pancakes are yummy, the true star of this breakfast is the peanut butter banana sauce drizzled on top. It is so delicious you will want to use it on everything, and I encourage you to do so!


1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


In a small bowl, mix together the flour, oats, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add the milk and stir until combined. Gently fold in the blueberries.

Spray a skillet or griddle with non-stick cooking spray and heat to medium-high heat. Spoon three equal sized portions of batter into the skillet/griddle and allow to cook until the pancakes start to bubble, then flip to the other side. Cook on the other side until cooked through.

Transfer the pancakes to a plate and top with fresh fruit, maple syrup, or this amazing peanut butter banana sauce:

Peanut Butter Banana Sauce

1 medium banana
2 Tbsp. peanut butter
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a small bowl, mash your banana very well and then mix in the peanut butter, almond milk, and vanilla. You could also combine them in a small food processor or blender for a very smooth sauce (this is what I did). Transfer the mixture into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 40-60 seconds, then stir. Pour your desired amount of sauce over the prepared pancakes and store any extra in an airtight container in the fridge.
