Chocolate, banana, oat pancakes

These are so delicious, and healthy!
I've made these a couple of times before (and posted them on my tumblr blog here), but they were just banana oat, this time I added cacao!
They are pretty dense and moist pancakes, sort of like banana bread. So if you wanted a more cakey texture, try just using 1 banana and increasing the flour to 3/4 cup.

1 1/4 cup oats
1/2 cup flour (I used spelt flour)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup non-dairy milk
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave 
1 tablespoon oil (I used peanut)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 medium ripe bananas

Blend all the ingredients in a blender for a few seconds, except the bananas. Then add the bananas and blend until smooth (about 10 seconds).
(If you don’t have a blender you can mash the bananas well with a fork and then whisk everything together).
Cook over a medium heat, and serve with maple syrup, banana and/or berries!
