Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Blender Pancakes

I’ve been seriouuusly obsessed with chocolate chips lately.

Choocolate Chips in everything! From my Chocolate Chip Quick Bread to my Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Bars. And now introducing Chocolate Chip Banana-Oat Blender Pancakes. Can we all agree that chocolate chips are the perfect way to cheer up any Monday!?!

I mean who doesn’t love a Chocolate Chip Banana Pancake that’s fluffy, soft, hearty, filled with melt-y chocolate chips and topped off with Maple Syrup. Pancakes + Banana + Chocolate Chips + Maple Syrup = L O V E. I have a confession friends. Whenever I come back from Canada I bring a huge jumbo-sized contained of maple syrup with me. It’s over TWENTY EUROS here for a small jar so I never ever ever want to run out and have to pay that price. Because this girl needs Maple Syrup with her pancakes, not plain sugar, not Aunt Jemima – only the good stuff! I have 3 huge jumbo sized containers of Maple Syrup in my student sized pantry right now, lol!

But let’s talk breakie. What’s your favorite, never-tire, go-to breakfast? Oats are my favorite way to start the day. Almost every morning I wake up to a big bowl of oats with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a touch of coconut sugar. In the summer I switch to overnight oats and on the weekends I’ve been loving oats in the form of my Chocolate Chip Banana-Oat Blender Pancakes.

These pancakes are perfect for lazy Sundays. Throw all your ingredients into a blender and blend, blend, blend until they form a creamy, smooth pancake batter. NO flour, refined oil or white sugar required! Only goodness from oats, bananas, flax and a few other pantry staples that you probably have in your cupboard right now. So go whip these up! It’s just what every Monday morning needs 😀

Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Blender Pancakes

  • Author: Ceara
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 12 pancakes 1x


These Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Blender Pancakes are whipped up in five minutes in the blender. They are 100% flour free and are made with just oats! Fluffy, soft + hearty, they make the perfect quick, healthy morning breakfast!


  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seed + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/2 tbsp white or apple cider vinegar*
  • 1 cup almond milk or non-dairy milk of choice*
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 1 1/2 bananas)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 heaping tbsp maple syrup or agave syrup*
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

For Cooking


  1. Place ground flax seed and water in blender, swirl it around and let it sit for a couple minutes until it becomes a thick, goopy, egg-like texture. Add the rest of the ingredients (EXCEPT for the chocolate chips!). Blend in the blender until the oats are dissolved and a smooth pancake batter is formed. Add a bit of milk, by the tbsp, if the batter is too thick. If it is too thin, leave it to thicken for a couple of minutes. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  2. Preheat stove to medium high heat and oil skillet with coconut oil spray or brush with cooking oil. Test the pan by dropping a couple drops of water on the skillet. When the water sizzles the pan is hot enough.
  3. Using a tbsp, scoop and pour batter (2 tbsp for each pancake) onto the hot, oiled pan. Do not exceed two tbsp or your pancakes will not be as fluffy. Cook for a couple minutes on the first side. The pancakes are ready to be flipped by they begin to bubble around the edges. Flip and cook for just less than a minute on the other side.
  4. Serve with crumbled walnuts and smother with maple syrup or toppings of choice!


These Banana-Oat Blender Pancakes can be made in a blender or in a large mixing bowl with an immersion blender.
Due to the oats, the pancake batter does thicken as it sits. While cooking the pancakes be sure to add a bit of milk, by the tbsp, to maintain a thick yet pour-able pancake batter.
These pancakes can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days in a sealed container or in the freezer for up to two weeks. Reheat pancakes in the toaster or in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Make sure your baking powder and oats are certified gluten free if necessary.

  12. I’m a total banana chocolate chip fan! They are way too delicious. I went to an agricultural high school where I took a class and learned to make maple syrup and honey. We would have taste testing classes and boiled our own syrup in a sugar shack. Nothing beats real maple syrup. 🙂

    1. That’s sooo cool! The closest I’ve gotten to making maple syrup is visiting Sugar Shacks in Quebec 🙂 You are so right – nothing beats the real stuff!

  13. Your pictures are gorgeous, Ceara! I just want to reach right through my screen and grab a few of these cuties. And I’m addicted to chocolate chips, too. A lot of times I’ll just sneak a few from the bag, as I need just a tiny chocolate fix on most days. And I’m loving this blender version! It doesn’t seem like it can get any easier than this. Pinned! Have a wonderful day!

  14. Totally agree on the chocolate chips, lately, I just eat them out of the bag for a little afternoon snack. But I love the idea of making pancakes with oatmeal. In fact, I love all the ingredients in these, and I have been totally craving pancakes lately but have been cutting my carbs so didn’t want to make “the boxed kind” Thanks for sharing this Ceara! Maybe I’ll just email to let you know how it goes, my pictures won’t look nearly as good as yours!!!

    1. Happy to know I’m not the only chocolate chip fan 🙂 They do make such a fun and quick snack – my favorite is grabbing a few chocolate chips in the afternoon with some almonds! Let me know if you end up making these, Laura!! They are so yummy, soft, nutritious and easy to whip up!! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start 🙂
