Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Protein Pancakes {dairy free + gluten free}

Hi friends!

Things have been quiet over here this week… because my real life has been hectic!

The “canals” in The Venetian in Vegas, where I had dinner one night this week

The past week has been a whirlwind, between getting through the busiest time of the year for my publicist job, celebrating a friend’s birthday locally in San Diego (with a private Pilates class & smoothie hangout!), then packing, getting organized, and setting off to Las Vegas for work. Last night I flew from Vegas to New Jersey, where we are in the midst of wedding busyness leading up to my brother’s wedding this weekend. So, as you can imagine, there has been a lot happening in my world.

BUT! Today I’m back to share one of my favorite recipes. It’s a goodie!

Pretty much everyone that knows me well knows about my love for pancakes. They’re my favorite fancy breakfast, hands down.

I’ve shared some very yummy pancake recipes on the blog before, but today’s recipe takes the [pan]cake.

See what I did there?

I actually shared a variation of these pancakes on the blog a couple years ago, but since then, my batter recipe has evolved a bit. Over the last few years, I’ve made these pancakes so many times, I can make them with my eyes closed. Sometimes I change them up a bit, subbing in chocolate chips for blueberries or topping them with strawberries, but the basic batter combination always remains the same:

Oats. Vanilla protein powder. Banana. Almond milk. A pinch of salt, cinnamon, stevia, vanilla extract and baking powder. And that’s all there is to it!

Salted Caramel Banana Pancakes

The other day I overheard a debate over a very important topic: what the best meal of the day is.

One person said that dinner is their favorite because there are so many options, while another woman said that breakfast is the best because you can’t beat omelets, toast and hash browns. The guy in the group said that brunch is the best because you can pick if you’re more in the mood for breakfast or lunch/dinner food, and it’s also an acceptable situation to drink alcohol before noon. Touché. salted caramel pancakes

For me, it’s a toss-up between a tapas dinner – since I love little plates and taking a few bites of many things – or breakfast. If you’ve read this blog much at all, you probably already know that pancakes are this girl’s favorite breakfast of choice (and sometimes for lunch or dinner too).

Have I gotten sick of pancakes having eaten them at lease once a week for the past several years? Negative… because I never stop coming up with new pancake recipes! Hence today’s topic at hand:  Salted Caramel Banana Pancakes

Sometimes my pancake recipes are simple and healthy, and sometimes they’re indulgent and more like dessert…. Today’s recipe is a cross between the two. These salted caramel banana pancakes are vegan, gluten free, and nutritious, yet they taste kind of like bananas foster meets a gooey, sweet tooth breakfast.

Red, White & Blue Pancakes [Vegan & Gluten Free]

Does anyone else feel like the month of June just flew by?!

I can’t believe that the 4th of July is already coming up at the end of this week! To celebrate Independence Day and get into a festive spirit, I came up with a red, white & blue recipe of one of my favorite meals… pancakes!

July 4th pancakes

I haven’t posted a pancake recipe in awhile, and trust me when I tell you that this one is deeeelicious. I’ve seen red, white & blue pancake commercials around for chain restaurants lately, and had the itch to come up with my own homemade version that’s gluten free, vegan, healthy and light.
