Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes
A basic whole-grain pancake to get you going in the morning. We also like to change it up a bit by adding 1/2 cup applesauce and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon instead of the banana.

Quick tips - I omitted powdered milk, no biggie - Used all whole wheat flour (no all-purpose), still great - Blended quick oats to a flour-like texture and that worked perfectly - Rather than mashing banana, I just threw the egg, milk, banana and vanilla in the blender, mixed it all up and added it to the flour mixture, worked great. I have never been a whole wheat fan, but as I'm getting older and realize how important nutrition really can be, expecially with diabetes in the family, I am trying to just make better choices when possible and using less white flour and sugar is one of the big ones. This was my first whole wheat baking experience and I have to say they were not only much better than I thought they would be, they were FANTASTIC! I will be makng these often. Next time I may add flax seeds and/or protein power to add a little extra umph...probably won't even be able to tellRead More
I thought this recipe was okay. The main photo looks fantastic. Mine did rise up, because of the amount of baking powder, but the browning was definitely not as perfect looking or the shape. However, my real issue is I thought they were sort of doughy in the inside almost sort of still wet despite being done. That was not what I expected. Also, something about the banana taste I did not love. I have tried plain and wheat pancakes from the site, but these were just not my favorite. I believe a ripe, or very ripe banana, is not right for this recipe. The banana flavor is dominant and it needs a very fresh one unlike most baked recipes with banana. I gave it 4 stars, because they are fairly healthy, and I am also sure none will go to waste. They seem like they can be re-heated like most pancakes. They may even dry out a little by the next day. I made 1/2 recipe and got 5 med-large pancakes.Read More

I thought these were awesome! I made a half-recipe since I was just cooking for my boyfriend and myself and it yielded 8 pancakes, 1/4 cup of batter each. To make them more healthy I used (for 3 servings) one egg white instead of the egg, 1.5 Tbsp applesauce instead of the oil, and skim milk. As others mentioned I added cinnamon and used a very ripe banana for mashing. With my substitutions the caloric content is about 195 calories per pancake and only 1g of fat, not bad! Thanks for the great recipe! I will be making these again!
I made these according to recipe, only adding a little nutmeg and cinnamon and using lowfat buttermilk instead of plain milk. With most pancake recipes that use oatmeal, I let the batter sit on the counter for a bit before making the pancakes. My kids gobbled these up and asked for seconds! I didn't eat any myself, but they sure enjoyed them. I served them with Absolute Best Pancake Syrup, which is also from this site. There were a few leftover, so I froze them in freezer bags in two portions for my kids so all I have to do is heat them in the toaster the next morning. A+ recipe.
I was 1/2 asleep this am when I made these - and missed the whole grinding the oats step - yikes! Decided to forge ahead and make them anyhow - and WOW! They are so delicious! If you can mess up as much as I did and they still come out great - now that's a recipe!!! LOL! I didn't feel like dragging out the milk powder so skipped that..
Great recipe! The only changes I made here was to use quick cooking oats (didn't place in the blender), I added 2 bananas instead of 1, I also omitted the sugar and it was just perfect. I think that 1/4 cup of sugar would have been too sweet for our taste. Thanks for the recipe!
A very good pancake. I recommend using less sugar and more banana. I liked it best with an additional egg, some flax, and chopped strawberries in the mix. It has a subtle oatty flavor, which I really enjoyed.
YUM! These were delish and healthy! I added an extra banana and about a tsp of cinnamon, and am glad I did. I think they may have been a little bland without this. I didn't have any of the dried milk powder on hand, so I didn't add that, and didn't miss it at all either. Thanks for the recipe!
These pancakes are FANTASTIC! My almost-one-year-old and I just gobbled them up for breakfast. What a terrific way to incorporate some additional nutrition into her (our) favorite breakfast. Thank you for posting this recipe- we will be sure to use it repeatedly.
These turned out really well. I used three ripe bananas, used less milk (less than a cup), and they were moist and yummy. I also added a tsp of cinnamon and a 1/4 nutmeg.
If I could add more stars I would!!!!!!!! SO delicious. I omitted the milk powder and I threw some fresh blueberries on the pancakes once they were cooking before I flipped them. My 4 yr old and 2 yr old and I all ate them without syrup!!
These were good. You could probably cut down on the sugar if your bananas are really ripe. I omitted the dry milk and it was just fine.
Fantastic! My husband said these were the best pancakes he's ever had. I actually agree, and I usually don't like banana pancakes - they usually seem too mushy, but not these. I did make a few changes. I halved the recipe and still used a whole banana, used just an egg white and skim milk, added a couple shakes of cinnamon, and ground the oatmeal in the coffee grinder. Don't worry about the dry milk powder, I didn't have it and didn't miss it. I do highly recommend adding a tablespoon of vinegar to your milk and letting it sour for a few minutes. This is a way of making your own buttermilk, and it makes the pancakes fluffier. These will become a family tradition!
I've had this recipe in my box for a long time and I finally got around to making it. I'm so glad I did because these are fantastic. For a whole grain pancake, they have the perfect texture. Healthy, but light and fluffy. The only change I made was adding 2 tsp. cinnamon. Soooo good! I also figured out that this would be the perfect base for a healthy pumpkin pancake recipe. I created a custom version, replacing the banana with 1/2 cup pumpkin puree and adding 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. So, soooo good!
These were delicious in my opinion. I did thin the batter a little more after letting them sit for 5 minutes with some milk. I subbed applesauce for oil, 2 bananas and no sugar. They were plenty sweet enough. I added 2 TBSP flax, cinnamon and some chopped walnuts. Yummy. Also, ended up with TONS of pancakes about 15 out of this batch and that was with one really giant one. Very healthy and good! Will make again.
I followed this almost to the letter, with the exception of souring my milk first. I thought that buttermilk would make it better. It was delish! I didn't expect the banana flavor to come through like it did with one banana, but it was a great surprise! Next time I will just beef the recipe up, by adding wheat germ and flax seed, but that is just a preference. Anyway, fantastic!!!
Even more wonderful with BLUEBERRIES in them. Either mix the berries in or drop them on the uncooked side before flipping pancakes over. - - - Also, I freeze the leftovers (individually on a tray, then separate indivdual portions with wax paper and keep in a freezer bag). I pop them frozen in the toaster. Lovely quick breakfast.
Wonderful! The kids loved them... especially with their requested chocolate chips. What I liked was that I didn't feel so bad adding the choc chips because of the healthy recipe. I didn't have whole wheat flour so I ground extra oats and increased the white flour (50/50) to make up for the 1 c. of whole wheat flour. Thanks for posting! I'm adding this to my permanent file.
The kids just helped me make these on a Saturday morning. They were delicious! I'll be freezing the leftovers for them for a breakfast treat during the week. The only changes were- 1oz (2 TB) of agave nectar in place of the brown sugar, and some flax seed meal in place of some of the all-purpose flour. (I filled my scoop to about 2/3 cup with the flour and filled the remainder with the flax.) I also added a little cinnamon and nutmeg. They would have been good with a second banana but I used my last one in this recipe.
Loved this one. Added chopped pecans and a bit of cinnamon for good health, poured maple syrup over and my day was a little brighter.
I really enjoy making these pancakes for my 1 yr old son. I use all whole wheat flour and omit the brown sugar and dry milk powder. I usually make a double recipe of the dry ingredients so that I always have some pancake mix on hand for the weekends. When I make the pancakes, I add 2 bananas and some honey to make up for the missing sugar and use 1 egg white instead of a whole egg. I also omit the vegetable oil. This makes for a very healthy meal to serve my son. I also gave some of the mix to my father who is borderline diabetic so that he can have a healthier version of his favorite breakfast. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a fabulous base recipe -- good as written, but also good to sub and add other ingredients to. Today I subed in the apple sauce for the oil, omitted the milk powder (as I didn't have any on hand), added ground flax and wheat germ, and also subbed in honey (a bit less than the 1/4 c) for the sugar. Topped with fresh strawberries. The whole family loved them. I'm excited to try different variations on this recipe in the future.
Amazing! We love these at our house. We have them at least once a week. My son whose allergic to milk (amongst other things) uses rice milk instead of reg. milk. It still tastes wonderful! I feel good about serving these to my kids, they're healthier than the alternative! Thanks for sharing:)
Excellent recipe! I've been making this for a few months now and they are great with bananas or applesauce. My changes: I always add in the cinnamon. I use at least two bananas instead of one; one just doesn't give it enough banana flavor for my tastes. I usually swap the dry milk out for 1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk powder and then switch the milk out for water. I often make extra batches of the dry ingredients in ziptop bags and stash them in the freezer. Label the outside with the liquid ingredients and their measures. Then it's as easy for me or my hb to make these as a store-bought mix.
Very good and hearty. I will make agian!
My family prefers this pancake over one with chocolate chips---so you know it's good! I didn't blend the oats, used them as is. Added some cinnamon just for the flavor. The pancake is pretty dense but super moist. Substituted same measurement of applesauce for vegetable oil. Be sure to use a very ripe banana. Used the 6 serving recipe and it made about ten 1/3c pancakes. Very delicious. Definitely a keeper--thanks!
These were delicious & cooked up beautifully! I halved the recipe since it's just my husband & me eating. My husband hates bananas, so I made his with walnuts. Then I added a whole banana to the rest of the batter. My blender is broken so I used Oat Bran instead of Oatmeal. I don't use white flour so I subbed it with a mix of Wheat Bran, Wheat Germ & ground Flax. Hubbie is a diabetic so I just used a bit of Splenda. Absolutely delish, thanks for the recipe.
These are good. I made a double batch, which was a mistake, because you can only eat 2 of these -- they are pretty dense.
WOW....these were amazingly delicious! I omitted the milk powder and used 2 ripe bananas and they were still fabulous! My kids couldn't get enough of them! Thanks for a great pancake recipe!
Oh my goodness these were so awesome! Even my husband who hates whole wheat flour in his pancakes loved this recipe. I did add extra banana and cinnamon/nutmeg like some others had suggested. Mmmmmmmm gonna make alot of these! Thanks!
Went exactly by the recipes (well, I had 2 overripe bananas so I threw them both in). Very good. I've tried a lot of wheat or oat pancake recipes and they are usually a miserable failure, so I was pleasantly surprised by these. The only trouble -- the kids (1 and 3) weren't into them. My 3-year-old was in tears. The 1-year-old just didn't eat as much as usual. So I don't know if I'll make them again or not, but this is definitely the best so far.
This was really great. I added chocolate chips to the tops of the pancakes while they were cooking. This will be a regular for us. I like the rolled oats idea, would like to incorprate this into other recipes. Thanks :)
This was a home run recipe. I made a few adjustments - first I mixed the dry ingredients: 1 cup "chopped" old fashioned oats; 1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour; 1/4 cup ground flaxseed; 2 Tbsp. milk powder; 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder; 3/4 tsp. baking soda; 1 tsp. cinnamon; 1/2 tsp. nutmeg; 1/4 tsp. salt. Then in a separate bowl I mixed the wet ingredients: 1 egg; 1 cup half & half; 1 cup skim milk; 2 Tbsp. applesauce; 1 Tbsp. honey; 1 tsp. vanilla; 2 bananas. I just added the bananas to the other wet ingredients in chunks, then with a hand mixer I mixed the wet ingredients until the banana was completely infused. In doing so the rest of the wet ingredients were whipped until light and foamy. Then I simply folded the wet into the dry ingredients and cooked. They were DELICIOUS! It was like slices of a light, airy, slightly nutty banana bread, which tasted great all on their own, but with a little maple syrup they were simply devine!! Thanks so much!
Good. Used my coffee bean grinder for the oatmeal and it worked like a jiffy.
I made these for my 11 month old and he loved them! I loved them too! they taste great. I did eveything like the recipe said ... except instead of blending my oatmeal , I just used my son's single grain baby oatmeal cereal. It was perfect....and it helped me gET RID OF THAT STUFF.... WE HAVE AN overabundance of it.
This was delicious. My kids said that these were very moist and fluffy like restaurant pancakes. I used only whole wheat flour, none of the white and I added 2 teaspoons flax seed meal. I subbed applesauce for the banana. I didn't add any sugar, because my kids always douse them with pancake syrup. I used half milk and half water, and omitted the dry milk. I added a teaspoon of lemon juice to help the baking soda. And I tripled the batch so that i could freeze some for us to eat later on in the week. I will definitely make again.
Great healthy pancake recipe!!! I changed it up a bit though using all whole wheat, skim milk, and no powdered milk. I also substituted honey instead of the sugar and added about a teaspoon of cinnamon, ill prob add a bit more cinnamon next time!! Delicious and healthy I added almond butter on top of my pancake instead of butter or syrup!
Awesome pancakes!!! We all loved these and will definitely be one of our weekly pancake recipes in this house. This will be one of those recipes that I deliberately let bananas go brown to make.
These are delicious! My three year old requested pancakes for his birthday dinner, so we whipped up a batch of these. I omitted the dry milk and subbed apple sauce for the vegetable oil. Topped with a berry compote, it was a big hit. Everyone cleaned their plates!
absolutely delicious. Next time I plan on putting walnuts in them.
Sundays are pancake day here. I rotate the kinds I make... These have become my kids favorite, they ask for these specifically a lot, so they are made quite frequently. :D I always double the recipe, and freeze the leftovers in baggies with 2 per bag, for quick breakfasts through the week. I leave out the milk powder and add extra banana... cook up half, then add mini chocolate chips to the other half. Thank you for posting the recipe :D
Very good! I used applesauce instead of oil, no dry milk, no brown sugar, double the banana, himalayan salt, about 4 tablespoons of egg whites instead of a wholeegg, and added some soy protein powder to give it a more balanced meal. Served with sugar free rhubarb sauce on top and it was a hit with my husband!
I quite liked these. My teenagers did too! I used the whole oats, worked out well and also added the cinnamon. I also cut the sugar in half and no one even noticed. Thanks for the recipe!
These were great. a few changes.... I found older bananas gave it more moisture and a sweeter flavor. I also used applesauce in place of veggie oil. I used whole wheat flour and replaced one cup of milk with eggnog for a holiday remake... YUMMY!!
Yummy recipe! I would add another banana and/or maybe some other fruit (blueberries?) next time. I had some trouble with keeping the right temperature on the stove, but that was just my lack of experience in making pancakes. I made the whole batch, even though I was home alone. I froze the leftovers, and can now have a pancake whenever I want!
Fabulous! I made a batch today so my family can eat them for breakfast this week. I used 2 very ripe bananas and left out the sugar as recommended by another review. I could smell the sweetness as they were cooking.<:) I also ground 2 teaspoons of flax seed in my grinder, substituted applesauce for the oil and left out the dry milk. They cooked up light and fluffy. I got 12 YUMMY six inch pancakes. Thanks for the recipe :D
Yummy! Very thick and moist. I didn't grind up the oats, and it still turned out great - just let batter sit a while before cooking.
My daughter just declared this, "the best pancakes I've ever had!" I have tried and failed many times to please her with homemade pancakes of every variation. The only thing I didn't add was powdered milk.I didn't have brown sugar, so I used 2 tablespoons of raw organic sugar which was perfect sweetness for us. I'm trying these again with applesauce and extra cinnamon instead of banana, probably add in some diced or shredded apple for texture.~~~Update, excellent with unsweetened applesauce and grated apples and cinnamon!!
Wonderful healthy breakfast! I prepared the recipe with skim milk and canola oil, and topped with some walnuts. Delicious! Thank you for sharing.
Pretty tasty! I used apple sauce instead of oil, two bananas instead of one, and added some walnuts and cinnamon for good measure. They're very substantial pancakes. I omitted the dry milk powder and didn't blend the oats, but was still satisfied by the yum of these pancakes.
These were very moist and fragrant pancakes. I didn't use evaporated milk, I switched cow's milk for soy milk, I replaced the all-purpose flour with whole wheat (and substituted some of that with quinoa flour), AND I omitted the oil, using 2 tablespoons of homemade applesauce instead. I cooked them in coconut oil. My batter was quite thick so I found I had to form fairly small patties to have them cook thoroughly over med-high heat. Used the leftover batter the next day. Fast and easy breakfast option! Thank you :)
I didn't have regular oats so I used three packages of instant oatmeal (Cinnamon Roll flavor) and it worked out well. They had good texture but are probably a little too healthy tasting for my family and very filling so. Don't know if I will make them again.
Delicious and healthy! I added some flax seeds and increased the milk for a thinner pancake, and the fam LOVED them!
I used 2 medium small bananas instead of 1 2T applesauce instead of oil add 1.5T cinnamon next time I'll add more used buttermilk instead of mill and add chocolate chips. The batter made 17 pancakes 1/4 cup of batter per and besides the first one I burned they where good but a little chewy and not very fluffy
Very good, and great texture. A coffee grinder was perfect for grinding the oats. Followed the recipe except for substituting buttermilk for milk (then compensating by halving the b. powder and doubling the soda).
A great recipe! Added 1 tsp. cinnamon and a pinch of allspice. Also used 2 small bananas. Then chocolate chips for my husband.
A nice, hardy pancake. My little boy gobbled them up. We made ours in a frying pan, since we don't have a griddle, and medium-high ended up being too hot. They turned out best when prepared on medium heat or slightly below.
I've made this recipe many times and love it. my 6yo son likes it too. I use agave nectar instead of brown sugar (reducing the liquid slightly) and water instead of milk (since it has the powdered milk already). I love to add choc chips and pecans. YUM! My best friend is vegan, and it adapts well (omit the egg and powdered milk, add a tablespoon of ground flax seed and use almond or soymilk for the liquid). It is a great base recipe!
Hearty and tasty. I used 4/5 cup of oat flour instead of rolled oats (3/4 cup plus a tiny bit extra) and sprinkled chopped walnuts on top of the pancakes after pouring the batter on the griddle. I'm still pleasantly full over two hours later.
I swear these are the best pancakes I've ever eaten! I used two bananas, omitted the sugar, and skipped the blender stage for the quick-cooking oats I used.
these were a really nice change for our weekend pancakes! i completely omitted the vegetable oil from the recipe and i don't think it was missed. i added some mini chocolate chips to the ones the kids had and they enjoyed that :) i love the texture in these and i will definitely make them again!
The kids liked these. 11yo said the taste and texture were good, but they needed a lot of syrup to keep from being dry. The toddler ate 3 big pancakes, but he's like a goat - he'll eat pretty much everything, lol.
Excellent! Made as written except for leaving out powdered milk. Great idea to put oatmeal in blender. Turned out better than other recipes I have tried with oatmeal in the batter. Also, great suggestion from reviewer to use blender for the banana and wet ingredients! Might as well wince it's already out and it makes it quick and easy. Great recipe!
These were great. Every other whole grain pancake I've tried is really flat and bland....not this one! I started off thinking that I would be substituting applesauce for the banana since we were out but upon taking the applesauce out of the fridge I noticed it was growing mold.....EWWW! In looking for something else to use I decided on pumpkin puree and it was a fantastic choice. So much so that I'm not sure we will be trying it with the bananas anytime soon.
Toddler son loves them - what more proof do you need? :)
So glad to see a good recipe for a healthy pancake that will give my kiddos energy for the day. Great texture that definately fills you up. My kids love them. MAde more than I expected: I got about 14 2-3 inch pancakes and 5 5-6 inch pancakes. Going to freeze the big ones for breakfast on a school day so I can toss them in the toaster. Only gave 4 stars because I think I'd like more banana flavour, so next time I might add 2 bananas and they weren't my favorite with just maple syrup, BUT I really loved them with jam spread on top! My daughter says she's stuffed!!
Healthy, but not healthy tasting.
Really yummy, I just doubled the vanilla extract and I suggest to use a large ripe banana if you want the taste to come out more. Also as mentioned before you can add 2 tsp of cinnamon.
Yummy! Only changes I made was I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg and 2 ripe bananas. My kids gobbled them up as fast as I was making them.
These are excellent and so healthy. If only my 2-year-old did not insist on "dipping sauce" (syrup) I would make these for him every day. I usually use more than one banana. If your bananas are ripe, you will probably not want to use the full amount of sugar. Don't skip it altogether, though, because it does affect how crispy the pancakes turn out. Today I didn't have an egg to put in, so I made a "flaxseed egg" using 1 tbsp. ground flax, 3 tbsp liquid. It worked fine. Oh, and I never seem to have milk powder in the house, so I always skip that.
this is excellent...especially for being healthy. I did use all WW flour in place of the AP, increased the vanilla to 2 tsp, added cinnamon to taste and doubled the bananas. this will be my new "go-to" recipe from now on. LOVE these!
Good, hearty pancakes! I used whole milk and pastry flower for the all-purpose, something I would always recommend when making whole wheat pancakes. Great frozen and thawed for a quick breakfast, too.
Turned out really well. I used quick cooking oats and didn't bother pre-grinding. I skipped the powdered milk, added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I cut the sugar in half and added 1/2 extra mashed banana. My 18 month olds loved them!
My preschooler is a picky eater, and he not only loves to put these pancakes together, he loves eating them. I have tried other whole-grain pancake recipes but this is the one my 3 year old asks for again and again! In terms of the recipe, I followed the directions to the T, minus the dry milk powder and adding 2T of freshly ground flaxseed. We usually make a 1/2 recipe and save the leftovers for a mid-afternoon snack. Thanks amom2boys!
Great recipe (with the addition of a tsp of cinnamon). I didn't have any dry milk powder, but it didn't matter. They turned out really good. This recipe made about 18 small pancakes. I froze 12 of them in hopes of toasting them later this week. Thanks for a healthier pancake option with basic ingredients.
Holy Cow- these are AWESOME!! My new favorite pancake! I used didnt use the dry milk, used all whole wheat flour and added cinnamon and used 2 smallish bananas instead of one. These came out tasting like a banana bread pancake. We didnt even use syrup! FANTASTIC!
These were very good! I couldn't eat them because of the whole "can't have gluten thing", but I had a tiny bite to figure out if I could feed it to my picky Hubby. He loved them!
I'm rating this on behalf of my granddaughters--they both loved these. I liked everything about them except the banana (a major part of the taste). What I found most appealing about these is the plumpness/texture. I think next time I'll just leave out the banana when I make them just for us.
A great alternative to banana bread for those spotty bananas. Excellent recipe. threw in some extra banana and added flax meal just for fun--turned out super moist and yummy!
Great Taste. A little dense, but that's typical with Whole Wheat. I added chocolate chips too - very good!
YUMMY! We added chocolate chips...
Very good, thank you!
Wonderful. My two year old gobbled them up. I refrigerated what was left and ate them the next day, cold. I didn't have dry milk powder, so I omitted that. I used 2 bananas, and added pumpkin pie spice to the mixture. SO good!!
My kids LOVE these! Omitted the milk powder and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Added a splash of milk to the batter to thin it out a bit. We divide into freezer portions for busy weekday mornings before preschool, etc. They thaw/heat easily and extremely quickly in the microwave on 50% power
Absolutely delicious! My 2yr old daughter can't get enough!
fabulous! Opted for the applesauce/cinnamon version. Loved the flavor with a little syrup. Husband and 5 year old twins loved them too!
Fantastic! I wanted a recipe for pancakes that my girls could eat with syrup and I wouldn't feel horrible about all the sugar along with all the carbs of normal pancakes. I followed some of the suggested substitutions (egg white vs egg and applesauce vs veg oil and no milk powder because I had none) to make it even more healthy hoping for okay pancakes. But what I got were simply delicious healthy pancakes. Phenom, amom2boys, you got it right here. My girls can have syrup with these and they aren't sugarizing themselves. Thank YOU!
I made these this morning - they were delicious! I didn't have any whole wheat flour so I subbed all-purpose for it. Turned out great! Also...I used frozen bananas. I will make these again!
Made this just as directed, the only exception being that my bananas were frozen (freeze overripe bananas in their skins, then thaw under warm water until the skin slips off. Then I thaw completely in microwave and mash), and really small so I used 2. These were not overly banana flavored, just a hint of delish sweetness, with the nutty wheat and oats. Also used coconut oil in place of bad omega-6 veggie oil. They cook up wonderfully and were perfect just as written!!
Excellent! These are now my favorite pancakes. My husband and toddlers also love them. We like to add a cup of chocolate chips to the batter. I also like them with chopped walnuts, but neither my husband or kids do. These are such a hearty pancake, I don't need to make anything to go along with them. One recipe of these by themselves feeds my family. Thanks for the wonderful, delicious recipe. Oh yeah, the blender works great for grinding the oatmeal!
I didnt blend the oatmeal, only because i'm lazy and didnt want to drag out the blender. But they still did turn out really good. Very hearty. Also i did not add the sugar into the mix, but did sprinkle a bit of cinnamon sugar onto each pancake as they cooked. they turned out just sweet enough for us :)
Yummy recipe as written! My bananas were little so I did use two, and I have real farm eggs that are huge (jumbo + size) but kept all else the same and they tasted great with just a little butter on them. DH loved them =-) DD (18) said they were OK because she just likes "plain" pancakes. I think next time I may put some chopped pecans in them to increase the nutty flavor of the whole wheat and oatmeal and to add a nice counter texture to the mushy banana pieces. Great nutrition and great taste--yummo! Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
These seemed like they'd be really dense at first, but after I bit into one, I found them to be light and fluffy, but filling too! Super yummy.
Best Pancakes and healthy too! Added an extra banana. Didn't have the dried milk, so skipped that out of necessity. Really Really good.
Easy to make, and my children (2 and 3 years old) loved them!
I tried these and they were very yummy. I used all whole wheat flour, no A/P, so they were VERY thick! Not the worst thing; they sucked up the syrup well! However I now know the rule of thumb to use 3/4c whole wheat flour in place of 1cup a/p flour. I didn't use milk powder (didn't miss it) and I used quick cook oats (no grinding was required). Generally, you can't go wrong with pancakes. I would make these again with the right proportions of ww flour. Overall, delish!
I've made this a lot, and it's delicious. This last time I replaced 1/2 cup milk with 1/2 cup banana, and it was even better. I freeze my bananas when they get mushy, then defrost in the fridge for recipes like this, so I think mine are a little wetter and mushier, which makes for even better pancakes!
Was a bit skeptical to begin with, but these turned out absolutely fantastic! My new favourite pancake recipe for sure. I skipped the powdered milk because I didn't have any handy and added just a FEW chocolate chips to some at the end, but to be honest, wished I hadn't, they were better without!
