Simple Banana Oat Blender Pancakes

These pancakes are a wonderful finger food for young children to feed themselves. They can be served warm on their own, or dipped in yogurt if desired. They are simple to prepare, and filled with whole grain oats, protein-rich eggs, and include a touch of sweetness from banana. These pancakes are gluten-free if made using gluten-free certified oats.
