3-Ingredient Pancakes (Vegan, Glutenfree)

I just love to start the weekend with a giant stack of pancakes! Well, actually I love to start any day really with pancakes! Problem is they usually take a lot of time to prepare and you often end with mediocre results at best, making it not worth all the time and effort spent! I for one, have had my own share of failed attempts and frustrations when it comes to vegan and gluten-free pancakes. But thankfully after lots of experimentation, this 3-ingredient recipe is a total keeper! What I love most about it is how easy it is to make and remember. All you need is 3 main ingredients: oats, banana and some sort of plant-based milk, and if you wish you can spice it up using different seasonings each time such as vanilla, cinnamon, cacao or carob powder, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, etc. So without further ado, here is the recipe. Enjoy!

3-Ingredient Fluffy Pancake Recipe

Serves 2


  • 1 cup steel-cut or rolled oats or buckwheat, ground into flour (see notes)
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk of choice (I used homemade walnut milk)
  • 3 teaspoons coconut oil, for cooking


  1. Throw all the ingredients, except coconut oil, in the blender and blend until smooth
  2. Melt a teaspoon of coconut oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Scoop the batter onto the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until it gets bubbly around the edges. Then flip and cook for another minute or two until golden brown
  3. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more coconut oil as necessary. You may need to reduce the heat to medium-low as the pan gets hotter
  4. Serve with pure maple syrup, berries, bananas, coconut flakes or this delectable Raw Chocolate Caramel Sauce


  • If you use a high-power blender like Vitamix or Blendtec, you can use oats or buckwheat groats instead of flour and the batter will still turn out smooth. Just don’t over-mix or the pancakes with be flat
  • If the batter is too thick towards the end and hard to get out of the blender, thin it with a splash of milk or water. Also if for some reason your batter is too thin, add some more oats to reach the desired pourable consistency
