Banana Oat Pancakes Free Spirited Sisters

This Banana Oat Pancake recipe is adapted from one I found on Goodful a little while back, that has become a fave in our house. It’s a  clean, healthy and naturally sweet version of pancakes that are nice and easy to whip up for breakfast. My daughter likes to add some maple syrup but you definitely don’t need to smother them in it! I usually sprinkle them with some nuts and berries but they really are delicious all on their own. I really love the added benefit of having superfood seeds in there too!
