We made this late on Sunday morning, so it did serve as Sunday brunch. Instead of making the regular ol’ pancakes, we decided to try something different and made banana oatmeal pancakes instead. This is surely a healthy alternative to the regular pancakes, but does also do the job of soaking up maple syrup just fine. Yes, that’s why I eat pancakes – maple syrup!
- 2 bananas, mashed
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 egg whites
In a saucepan, heat the milk and butter until the butter melts.
Add the oatmeal, stir to combine, then let cool.
When cooled, add the egg yolks to the oatmeal. Stir to combine again.
Combine the dry ingredients, then slowly mix into the oatmeal mixture.
Add the mashed bananas into the oatmeal mixture and stir to combine.
Beat the egg whites until fluffy and stiff.
Fold in the egg whites into the oatmeal mixture.
Drop oatmeal mixture in 1/4 cup-fuls onto a medium-heated griddle. Spread the oatmeal to form circles.
Flip pancakes to the other side when bubbles start to appear on the surface (about 2-3 minutes).
Cook the other side for about 3 minutes, then serve with butter, fresh bananas, and maple syrup.
Serve and enjoy!
