Now that the cooler weather has arrived, cold cereal doesn’t really cut it for a good start to the day. These pancakes are a really quick breakfast, as I keep several batches of the mixed dry ingredients in zip lock bags in the pantry – ready to add the wet ingredients to. They’re very dense and filling – and are a particular favourite of mine. You will notice that there is no sugar in these – it’s not a typo! I don’t add it, but you should certainly feel free if you like things sweet. I bet brown sugar would be especially good with bananas and oatmeal in these!
Oatmeal Pancakes (banana, pumpkin, apple)
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or regular or a mix of both)
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon optional
- 1 cup banana mashed (or 1/2 cup of pure pumpkin)
- 1 egg beaten
- 3/4 cup Milk
- Combine dry ingredients until well mixed, then add the banana, egg and enough milk to make a thick (but pourable) batter. Let batter sit for a minute or two to soften the oats.
- Heat a skillet, pan or whatever you usually use to make pancakes.
- Spoon onto skillet, and flip when the underside is browned.
replace banana with ½ cup apple sauce
replace banana with a pouch of pureed baby food
replace banana with half a can of pure pumpkin (and add some pumpkin pie spices if you like too!) NOTE: These are very dense, so do take a little longer to cook through all the way.
