Banana Matcha Oatmeal Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream Bananas

I’ve partnered with Premier Protein to bring y’all these Banana Matcha Oatmeal Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream Bananas And A Giveaway!
After a waffle heavy couple of weeks in our neck of the interwebs, I decided to pancake it up this weekend and made these super simple, 6-ingredient, protein-packed, Banana Matcha Oatmeal Pancakes.

Banana Matcha Oatmeal Pancakes

In the 18 years I’ve known her, my daughter has always preferred to go wild with her choice of pancake toppings.
There was this brief period of time when she would only eat pancakes topped with ketchup and mustard.
Then there was the ice cream phase which morphed into the eggs and cheese one!
When most people were enjoying their avocados smashed on toast, my daughter was enjoying them smooshed on pancakes – with parmesan!

I, on the other hand, have pretty tame (I think) choices when it comes to pancake toppings.
I’d much rather have a smear of jam or sauteed bananas or apples with mine…unless they were chocolate (in which case all the chocolate chips and cookies in the house end up on top of them!).

But – to enjoy pancake toppings, there’s gotta be some pancakes – right?

Banana Matcha Oatmeal Pancakes

After feasting on waffles last week, this weekend I decided to give my waffle-maker a break and whipped up these super-simple, Banana Matcha Oatmeal Pancakes.
These bad boys are made with ground up rolled oats – making them very similar to these Oatmeal Pancakes.
However, instead of using almond milk, I used Premier Protein’s Bananas & Cream Protein Shake and, added in a smidge of matcha powder.
While matcha is on the pricey side, these pancakes come nowhere close to the $200 price tag of these ones found at Opus in the Printworks in England – which are said to contain Madagascan vanilla pods and 23-carat gold leaf!

I ended up sauteing some bananas with brown sugar and cinnamon to go on top of these pancakes, but, then had the idea to add in some of that Premier Protein’s Bananas & Cream Protein Shake into the saute and I gotta say, the result was pretty darn delicious! So delicious, I had a hard time prying the pan away from my oddball-pancake-toppings-loving daughter!

    I have steel cut oats. Would you recommend the 1 cup still?

    • Shashi says:

      Hi Jamie, I used rolled oats and am not sure how this would be with steel cut oats – I’d recommend rolled oats if possible.

  3. Amy Lauren says:

    I haven’t seen the banana flavor of this shake, but these pancakes do look delicious!

  4. These are beautiful! I’d love to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  5. lisa says:

    I’ve never heard of matcha powder before. But, ketchup and mustard on pancakes? I thought I ate some strange combos. How funny!

  6. Ben Maclain says:

    Wow, mustard and ketchup sound like a…peculiar way to enjoy your pancakes. When I was the kid, my favorite toppings were sweetened condensed milk (Actually, I like it these days too), sour cream, and preserves. That, indeed, were the most available things in Russia those years. I’ve grown and so have my palate 🙂 I can go as with sweet toppings like maple syrup, dulce de leche (perhaps, my favorite), honey, ice cream (mostly with crepes, though), and so one as with savory ones like greek yogurt, cheese, eggs, butter, etc. Lavender too, of course:) These pancakes look pretty, and I bet this combo is fabulous. Besides, the colors are pretty spectacular – this kind of green and golden look great together.

  7. Mmmmm, what a delicious pancake topping of caramelised banana’s. You got me at that!

    Mouthwatering looking pancake recipe Shashi! 🙂

  8. Ketchup and mustard on pancakes? Whoa! That’s definitely a different combo for sure!! Avocado and parm? I think I could try that, though 🙂 I have been known to put vinegar in chili and soup on the regular. I don’t know how odd that combo is, but I do love me some vinegar. I think with pancakes, I would be more like you…on the traditional side with fruit….and some good maple syrup 🙂 I can’t believe there’s actually pancakes out there that are $200! They must be some pretty awesome pancakes, gold leaf or not, lol 😀 I would love a big stack of your pancakes right now with extra banana. They look so fluffy and absolutely delicious! Hope you have a great week, my friend! xo

  9. puja says:

    These pancakes look so good! I am excited to try them soon…. 🙂

  10. Wow! What a mouthful of a title! And what a delicious mouthful of pancakes these are!
    Also, pancakes topped with ketchup and mustard?? I would choose these over them any day 😉

  11. Mira says:

    Love their protein shakes and what a great use of them. The pancakes look perfect! Love matcha! Pinned to try them!

  12. Shashi, these pancakes look utterly amazing! I seriously feel like it’s an understatement to call such a beautiful stack of food art mere pancakes… 😉 Meanwhile, however anyone chooses to top these babies–whether with mustard, cheese or let’s say… poundcake crumbs (!!)–they’re sure to be a delight! You know, come to think of it, your daughter would totally love savory pancakes! Now before I go off on a huge tangent about those, let’s get back to these amazing works of art. I LOVE the caramelized bananas… just the thought of that cinnamony sweet goodness has me craving pancakes for dinner! Hope you both have an awesome week! xox

  13. Okay, and I though I had weird topping preferences! Seriously, my husband makes fun of me for dipping a cream cheese topped english muffin in ketchup. 🙂 BUT, your daughter has me beat!!! Ketchup and mustard or parmesan on pancakes?! I can’t judge, because I’d probably really like it! hahaha. Anyways, one think I know FOR A FACT that I will LOVE are these pancakes! They have so much deliciousness going on! Banana, matcha and oatmeal with banana cream?! Whaaaa?! I NEED a stack seven tall of these babies! Nom Nom Nom! Love it! Cheers, Shashi! <3

  14. truly a “match” made in matcha heaven. LOL! see what I did there? Banana cream for the win!

  15. Haha! Lil Shashi does indeed have some oddball flavor choices in pancakes. I mean ketchup and mustard? But I can totally see the smashed avocado version…that sounds awesome! But I will stick to the more ‘traditional’ flavors, and I’m all about these banana matcha pancakes. They sound (and look) delicious, Shashi! I sent my drone down to pick some up…I trust that you stocked the drone well? 🙂 Hope you guys had an awesome weekend, my friend! (From the looks of it, you at least had a delicious weekend…)

  16. SarahSarah says:

    Love matcha, love bananas…why have I never thought of combining the two?? Genius! Can’t wait to try this!

  17. Corina says:

    These look delicious with those lovely bananas on top! And I love your daughter’s creativity with her pancake toppings! Why not be a little different!

  18. Such a hearty and delicious breakfast! I love those caramelized bananas.

  19. pretty says:

    wow these look like the perfect protein packed breakfast I need after my runs and workouts.

    This is such a creative, great us of the protein shake. And the pancakes look so good! Love those bananas on top — WAY better than the ketchup & mustard would have been. 😉
