Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
1/2 cupLarge Flake oats
1/2 cupButtermilk
3Ripe Bananas, mashed
3 tbspExtra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tspPure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cupsUnbleached All-Purpose Flour (Red Fife and Spelt Flour will also work)
1 1/2 tspBaking Powder
1/2 tspBaking Soda
1/8 tspSea Salt
Honey Roasted Peanut Butter
2 cupsSpanish Peanuts, unsalted and dry roasted
2 tbspHoney


  1. Mix the oats and buttermilk together in a bowl, cover and refrigerate. Let sit overnight, or at least 6 hours.
  2. Add the oats and buttermilk mixture to the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Place a non-stick griddle pan or greased sauté pan over medium heat. Pour about a 1/3 cup of the batter into the pan. Once you start to see bubbles in the pancake and the edges are set, roughly 3 minutes, flip and cook the other side for about 1 minute.
  4. Continue to cook the rest of the pancake batter, and serve with your favorite toppings.
  5. For the honey roasted peanut butter, add the roasted peanuts to a food processor and blend. Scrape down the sides as needed. Blend for about 4 minutes for chunky peanut butter and about 8 minutes for smooth. Once you’ve reached your desired texture, add the honey and blend for a few more seconds.


  • Oats are a good source of fibre. Fibre helps keep the digestive system working well and prevents constipation.  
  • Oats are also an excellent source of thiamin, which is needed for a strong immune system and to turn carbohydrates into energy. 
  • One large egg contains 6 grams of protein, a nutrient needed for a child’s growth and development. Both children and adults need protein to repair tissues, for the proper functioning of the immune system and to maintain muscle, blood cells and skin.  Not getting enough protein during cancer treatment can cause the body to break down the protein in its muscles for energy. Losing muscle mass can make it more difficult to recover from cancer treatment or illness. It can also make it harder for the body to fight off infection.  
  • Eggs are rich in choline, a nutrient that is needed for brain development and function. It is used in brain cell membranes and to make the messenger (called a neurotransmitter) that delivers messages from the brain to the muscles.
