- 1tspVanilla extract
- 1tspBaking Powder
- 1/4tspCinnamon Powder
- 1/4tspNutmeg (optional)

Grind the rolled oats and chia seeds in a grinder to a fine powder and set aside.
Combine the banana, egg, milk, vanilla extract, baking powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg (if using), and salt in a blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and has a pourable consistency.
Add the ground oat and chia mixture to the blender and pulse until well combined. Transfer the batter to a bowl and set it aside for 5-10 minutes.
Heat a heavy-bottomed pan or skillet on low-medium heat and brush the pan with olive oil.
Using a 1/2 cup measure or a spoon ladle, pour the batter onto the skillet and slightly press down with the ladle to flatten it to a pancake shape.
Cook for 4-5 minutes on one side and flip the pancake. Cook for another 4-5 minutes on the other side or until golden brown on both sides.
Repeat the process with the remaining batter to make the pancakes.
Serve the pancakes with maple syrup, sliced banana and strawberries on top.
