Waffles or pancakes?

On most days, I’ll choose waffles, but some days are different. These healthy oatmeal pancakes usually come in at a close second. Sometimes pancakes can be too sweet, especially with the addition of maple syrup. But these bad boys have no added sugar and are naturally sweetened by bananas, instead. These pancakes don’t require sugar or flour — just oats, a banana and a few other ingredients! And they are are not only easy to make, but we promise you won’t feel guilty after indulging in them. Go ahead and try out this recipe!
