    made this for breakfast this morning – easy to make and delicious – thank you 😉

      Donzie, You're welcome!

    The only thing I would add is that most oats are not gluten free, so if you are looking for a gluten free recipe, you have to specifically buy oats that are certified gluten free (most oats are contaminated from wheat crops). Trader joes has the cheapest I can find, but because they are old fashioned oats, you might need to grind them up in a coffee grinder or food processor first…..

    I have made banana pancakes and not used the oats and they turned out fine.

    • brit  November 28, 2015

      what do you substitute the oats with?

      • SkinnyMs  November 29, 2015

        You can use flour but the results will not be the same.

      • Debbie  July 2, 2017

        I just use 1/4 cup egg beaters and 1 banana. They turn out very well and saves the points from the oats. They are not really needed in my opinion. It makes 4 nice size pancakes.

    Can we use just egg whites instead of eggs?

    • SkinnyMs  January 12, 2015

      Sharon, You can try to use 2 egg whites per one egg, yes.

  5. Christine  August 27, 2015

    I know this recipe is a bit older, but is it okay to make the mix the night before and pour the pancakes in the morning? I only ask because I need to be out of the house by 5:30 AM and making things the night before makes that easier!

    • SkinnyMs  August 28, 2015

      Unfortunately, you can't make the pancake batter the night before, as the texture will become gluey, but you can make your pancakes the night before. Store in an air-tight container and reheat on the griddle… or, freeze with pieces of wax paper between each pancake in a freezer bag.

    Christine, perhaps you can at least pre-measure out and put in a bowl the oats and cinnamon? Then in the a.m. you will just have to add two eggs and one banana. The measuring step would have been done. Any idea, folks, on what the new SmartPoints conversion is for these?! They are yummy:)

    These are great and my whole family enjoys them. I add a dash of vanilla extract which makes the base awesome. This morning I also added some unsweetened coconut flakes to the mix and we loved it, so I will definitely be doing that again. Thanks!

  8. Lori  June 20, 2016

    I got all excited because it says the recipes are Points Plus – but they are all Smart Points. How do I convert them back to Points Plus?

  9. Sara  September 8, 2016

    is it at all possible to use rolled oats in this?

    • Gale Compton  September 10, 2016

      Sara, Yes, old-fashioned rolled oats are fine. 🙂

  10. Cindy  January 29, 2017

    Do you smash banana until no lumps?

    • Gale Compton  January 29, 2017

      Cindy, Either way is fine. If you would like some small banana chunks, which I do, then leave in some lumps. 🙂

    My daughter makes them daily and uses desicated coconut. Or finely chopped coconut.
    This is the recipe, it is very good.

    Mash one regular size banana.
    Add 1/4 cup of chopped coconut, or very small flakes
    1 egg
    2-3 Tbsp. of tapioca flour.
    Makes a large serving pf s,a;; [amcales/

  12. Yvonne  March 20, 2018

    I used gluten free oats, a dash of salt, a splash of vanilla extract and a packet of stevia. YUM…

  13. Nancy Munro  July 22, 2018

    why do you count this as 4 smart points? When I built the recipe in the WW app it was 0 smart points. 1/2 T of oats split in 2 (2 servings) is 0 pts. This was under the Freestyle plan.

    • Nichole Furlong  July 25, 2018

      Hi Nancy – the 4 SmartPoints was under the old calculations. The correct Freestyle plan points is 0! We have updated the recipe to reflect. Thank you!
