As many of you may know, I am absolutely obsessed with breakfast, so it is only natural that I love pancakes. Over the past few months I have been really interested in how different types of pancakes are made, and I have been looking at all kinds of recipes to try and find a pancake that is unique, and somewhat healthier than the traditional buttermilk pancake.
While looking on Pinterest one day, I came across a banana pancake recipe that was literally just a mashed banana and an egg. I immediately ran to the kitchen to try it out, seeing as bananas and eggs are both a huge part of my diet. The pancake came out well, but I found it to be way too moist. It was hard to flip it without it falling apart. But after that pancake adventure, I decided that I would continue to make that banana pancake, but each time I made it, I would alter the recipe a little, just to see what would happen. After about a week of pancake experimenting, I finally had a solid recipe that I was very happy with and that is what I am sharing with you now. I just love how versatile a pancake can be!
Here is my recipe for Banana Oat Pancakes
1 cup Old Fashion Oats
1/2 banana, mashed
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
coconut oil for pan
Mix all ingredients together until just combined. Heat pan on medium and add coconut oil. Use a 1/4 cup measure to spoon batter into the pan. Wait for bubbles to appear around the edges of the pancake, about 1-2 minutes, and then flip. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
And that’s it! Easy, right? And so delicious (and healthy!) I encourage everyone to play with this recipe too, and let me know if you come up with something even better. After I made this, I thought adding cinnamon and a little nutmeg might make it even better!
Keep experimenting and Enjoy!
