Ingredients

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

1/2 teaspoon fine salt 

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

2 ripe bananas

3 large eggs, lightly beaten 

2 teaspoons honey 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

1 cup blueberries 

1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes, optional 

Maple syrup, for serving 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Add the oats to a food processor and process until they resemble coarse flour. Add the baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Pulse a few more time to mix together.
  3. Mash the bananas in a large bowl until smooth. Add in the eggs and mix well, then add the honey and vanilla and stir. Add the dry mixture to the wet and fold with a rubber spatula until a batter forms.
  4. Put a griddle on medium heat and grease with some of the butter. Drop 1/4 cup of the batter per pancake onto the griddle. Cook the pancakes on each side until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to the warm oven and continue with the remaining batter, adding more butter when needed.
  5. To make the berries, set a dry saute pan over high heat. Add the blueberries and swirl the pan to avoid sticking. Heat until the berries are just starting to change to a deep purple color and beginning to blister and open.
  6. Pour the berries over the pancakes and sprinkle with the coconut if using. Drizzle with the syrup. Serve immediately.
