Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
Why I Love This Recipe
I was craving pancakes, and not the ready mix ones they sell at the supermarket, i found this recipe online, and decided to go ahead and give it a try. They are beyond delicious, better than any other pancakes i have ever tried, full of good hearty ingredients that keep your full and energized throughout the day.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 C white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
1 C quick or rolled oats
1 TBS baking powder
1 TSP salt
1 TSP cinnamon
1 TBS honey or maple syrup
1 TSP vanilla extract
1 to 1 1/2 cups soymilk OR water (depending on whether you like thin or thick pancakes)
1 banana, diced
Cooking spray for pan
1/4 cup almonds, slivered (optional)
1. In a bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, egg, cinnamon, vanilla and honey. Stir in the soymilk to the desired consistency. I like my pancakes to be neither too thin nor too thick, so I added 1 1/4 cups of soy milk. Stir in the bananas.
2. Place a skillet on medium heat (I use a square-shaped griddle). After spraying the pan, pour batter into 4-inch diameter circles (using about 1/4 cup of batter).
3. While the pancakes are cooking, hand chop the almonds on a cutting board with a sharp knife.
4. Once the pancakes begin to bubble, flip them and cook for another minute or so on the other side until golden brown.
