Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

February 20, 2013


Breakfast Recipes Kelly Hutchinson 27 Comments

I’ve been on a bit of a decadent banana breakfast kick lately.  Last weekend I made banana french toast and this weekend I made both these oatmeal banana pancakes and peanut butter banana breakfast rolls (recipe coming soon!).  I’m not normally so into bananas, but they’re cheap, delicious, and easy to keep around the house.

Pancakes are definitely one of my top two favorite foods – it’s a close call for first between pancakes and tacos.  My favorite way to make them is super thick and fluffy.  One of my first memories is of my grandma making me oatmeal pancakes and I’ve been trying my entire adult life to mimic them.  These aren’t so much like my grandma’s pancakes, but they’re delicious in their own right and full of banana goodness.  I went extra indulgent with mine this last weekend and added chocolate chunks, then topped with peanut butter maple syrup.

Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
Author: 
Serves: 6
 

Ingredients
  • ½ c white whole wheat flour (or GF flour of choice)
  • ½ c quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 dashes cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg
  • 1 ½ large bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ c + 2 tbsp almond milk
  • ½ chocolate bar or chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions
  1. Combine the flour through nutmeg and set asside.
  2. Thoroughly mash bananas (I like to freeze, thaw in the microwave, and mash with a fork). Add vanilla and almond milk and mix.
  3. Add wet to dry and stir until just combined. Rest at least 5 minutes.
  4. If adding chocolate, chop chocolate bar and add to the batter after resting.
  5. Spritz a pan over medium heat or a griddle set at approximately 350° with nonstick spray.
  6. Using a ¼ – ⅓ c measuring scoop, ladle pancakes onto pan. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes on each side, until pancakes are cooked through.

Peanut Butter Maple Syrup
Author: 
Serves: 6
 

Ingredients
  • ½ c pure maple syrup
  • ⅓ c peanut butter, creamy
  • corn or rice starch, optional

Instructions
  1. Combine syrup and peanut butter over medium heat.
  2. Whisk while heating until combined and smooth – heat to almost boiling. Allow to cool until thickened

Notes
It’s best to mix this up before pancake batter and the syrup will thicken while cooling. If you want a thicker syrup, add corn or rice starch while heating, bring to boil, and allow to cool.

    Those pancakes look amazing. I am so happy there is no egg in your recipe (allergy thing). I was reading that recipe like 10 times to make sure :). Those mashed bananas do the job, I think. I will definitely make them for breakfast,

      Eggs aren’t something I like to cook with often– I find them a little creepy and can find a substitute that tastes better 99% of the time. I believe all of the recipes I currently have posted, except the meatless meatloaf, are egg free– including the french toast :)

    I am generally not much of an oatmeal fan, but in pancake form it sounds delicious! And peanut butter maple syrup?? Seriously?? You have me sold with that one! ;)

      You don’t get much of the oatmeal texture, it just helps provide a nice thick pancake and a little taste. The longer you let the batter rest, the softer the oats will get and you won’t even know they’re there.

      Or you can just make the PB syrup and pour it over everything else in your kitchen (highly recommended!)

      Saturdays are perfect for pancakes, right? They’re so easy to make so they fit right in with a lazy, lazy morning.

    Yesssssss. I love oatmeal, and I love bananas, however, I am weird and don’t like pancakes. But in the name of all things delicious I would scarf these down like they were going out of style. LOVEEEEE.

    Even though I have a banana allergy, I’m pinning this to make for my husband at some point. And that peanut butter syrup sounds TO DIE FOR. Goodness. Thanks for sharing, Kelly!

    OMG yes! I love these pancakes! The boyfriend is a weirdo who doesn’t like bananas so I’d have to make him something wonderful to distract him from the fact that I’m making myself some pancakes all for me :P

      Gasp! I’ve been crazy obsessed with bananas lately. Couldn’t imagine it was possible to not like them.
