Whole Grain Banana Pancakes

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars
0

"After trying and tweaking several different pancake recipes, I'm very happy with this one. The oats add texture, the bananas make them sweet, and the almond meal adds protein and a delicate crispiness. My kids love these pancakes on a Saturday morning, and I always make sure I save some for myself! Serve warm with maple syrup."

  1. Preheat griddle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix whole wheat flour, almond meal, oats, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Beat an egg in a separate bowl. Beat milk, banana, and canola oil into the beaten egg; pour into flour mixture and stir until just combined into a lumpy batter.
  4. Pour batter 1/2-cupful at a time onto the hot griddle; cook until edges become crisp and bubbles have formed on the top, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip the pancakes and continue cooking until the bottom of the pancakes are browned, 3 to 5 minutes more.

It took quit a while for the pancake to cook through. Had to spread the batter out or it was too thick. Tasted ok though!

I used nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt instead of milk, doubled the oats, and added 1/8 cup of honey. Delicious.
