You don’t need to use dairy products to create the perfect pancakes. This recipe only requires 3 ingredients – bananas, instant oats, and your choice of plant based milk.

7. Cranberry Orange Spiced Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great recipe to make for breakfast – especially if you are trying to watch your weight. Oats are a type of whole grain that are very high in fiber and essential nutrients.

They release energy slowly throughout the day, helping you to feel fresh and to regulate your blood sugars. Eating oats regularly has also been shown to help with bone density and cardiovascular health.
