Banana Oat Pancakes

These pancakes were devoured by the family and stick to the ribs because they are full of oats!  They are heavy to lift, yet surprisingly light on the palette.  They are full of banana flavor.  The texture was nice and we all enjoyed them.  I will be revisiting these a lot when my boys are teens and eating me out of house and home!

yield: about 15 large pancakes

  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder 
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 3-4 TBSP butter
  • 2 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed banana

In a saucepan, heat milk, oats and butter to be hot, turn off and let sit to steep while preparing other ingredients.  Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Mix mashed bananas into oatmeal mix.  Add vanilla to egg yolks and temper egg yolks with oatmeal if it is still hot  (Add a spoonful of oatmeal mix to eggs, whisk and repeat until egg yolks are warm).  Meanwhile, beat egg whites to a stiff peak.  Mix oatmeal mix into flour mix.  Add a bit more milk to thin if needed.  Fold in half the egg whites then the other half.  Cook on griddle on med to med low heat.  Serve with butter and maple syrup and fresh strawberries, if desired.
