Looking for a low fuss breakfast idea? Try these simple Banana Oat Pancakes made with just 3 ingredients: ripe bananas, eggs, and oats.

In a medium bowl, mash 2 ripe bananas. Stir in 2 eggs that have been lightly beaten and 1/2 cup of dry oats (quick oats or old fashioned).

Warm a skillet over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray or a light glaze of butter.  Pour about 1/3 cup portions of batter onto the skillet and cook until the pancakes are firm around the edges and small bubbles form on top. Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown.

Serve plain or with a light drizzle of syrup.

Serves 2.
