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)

Ingredients:
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)

Instructions:
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!
