You are going to love these homemade pancakes! My kids love these Banana Oat Blueberry Pancakes.

Breakfast with my family as a child is one of my fondest memories. We spent many weekend mornings sitting around our kitchen table waiting for my parents to bring out plates filled with Snowmen or Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes. There were always an endless amount of home fries, sausage and bacon, too. My dad was and still is the “Pancake King” so it was important that my homemade pancake recipe tasted just as good, if not BETTER than my dad’s famous blueberry pancakes.

I added cinnamon and a small amount of vanilla extract. THEY. ARE. SO. GOOOOOOD! I also served with walnuts as they are rich in antioxidants and a great source of omega-3s. We call these my “anti-inflammatory” pancakes at home. I have been on the hunt for more foods that prevent or reduce inflammation in the body. Chronic illness seems to run rampant around here, so the more we take care of our bodies with nourishing foods, the better we will feel.

I hope you love these pancakes as much as we do! Add all of your ingredients into your blender, and voila! It’s that easy! We devoured our pancakes and saved the rest for dinner.
