Me and my daughter Maja both like to eat semi under ripe bananas. But overly ripe bananas are great for cooking and baking! I love to use them in pancakes – it adds some natural sweetness and moisture too. And of course the kids love it. For this Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Pancakes recipe, I am using Greek Yogurt too (you could use any plain yogurt) – which also makes the pancakes incredibly moist. I don’t know about you – but I can’t stand a dry pancake. The oats just add some texture, and I’ve heard somewhere that oats are good for you…

So there you have it – easy, healthy and delicious weekend breakfast! These Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Pancakes make a great snack too. If I have leftovers I usually pack them in Maja’s lunch.

If you added another egg and a couple of more teaspoons of baking powder – this recipe would probably make great waffles too.
