Recipe - Oatmeal & Banana Magic Bullet Pancakes

I adapted this from two other recipes. This one here and here. The recipe only feeds 2 people (or two toddlers & one grown-up). I love that this is super easy, gluten & casein (dairy) free and does not produce leftovers. This is a perfect weekday breakfast for me and the kids. They do have more of a soft custard quality rather than the bread like quality since they are primarily banana and egg. Going gluten free I much prefer this over the gritty results that most gluten free flour blends produce, I think the kids do too.
Gather the ingredients
Add the oats to a clean dry blender.
Pulverize Oats in Magic Bullet until ground.
Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and blend till smooth.
This is how it should look. I typically have to scrape down the sides once.
This is the oil I use in the pan. I just love this stuff. It never leaves a gummy coating on my pans and it is healthier than other oils.

Heat coconut oil in the pan over medium heat and cook like a regular pancake.
Serve with syrup, fruit or whatever you like on your typical pancakes and enjoy!

Oatmeal & Banana Magic Bullet Pancakes
Serves 2 (makes 8 small pancakes)

1/2 c G/F Rolled Oats
2 eggs 
1 large ripe bananas
1/4 c Apple Sauce
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
coconut oil for the pan (I really like the coconut oil spray from Trader Joe's)

1.  Pulverize Oats in Magic Bullet until ground.
2.  add the other ingredients (all but the coconut oil) to the bullet cup & blend
3.  Heat coconut oil in the pan over medium heat and cook like a regular pancake.  

Serve topped with powdered sugar or syrup. 

Doubling the ingredients in 1 bullet cup would be too much and overflow or not blend properly (even in the biggest cup). I have doubled this recipe by using a second bullet cup (same blade). The key is to pulverize the 1/2 cup of oats in each of the cups before moving to on to step 2. Once the blade is wet or damp it makes it impossible to ground the oats.

I love the magic bullet I just wish you got more than one of the double blades or they made it possible to purchase a second/replacement one(s).

Another option is to use a large blender or food processor and double, triple or even quadruple the ingredients. I have not tried this however so I do not know how well it would work. 

Thanks for stopping by the nest!
