Are banana oat pancakes healthy?

How do you make healthy banana pancakes?
The first thing you wanna do is make the oat flour. This is super easy to do. Just add the oats to a blender and blend them into a fine flour-like consistency.
Next add the eggs, bananas, ground cinnamon, hemp seed hearts, salt, vanilla extract and oat flour to a large bowl.
Use a fork to mash up the bananas well. Then, continue to beat with a fork until the ingredients are well combined.
Heat up a skillet over medium heat and add the oil. To make one pancake add a little less than 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet. You should be able to make 2-3 pancakes at a time depending on how big the skillet is. Cook for just a few minutes.
Then flip the pancakes and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Transfer the pancakes to a plate and repeat the above steps with the remaining batter.
