This is a hearty and very enjoyable different approach to pancakes that is well worth the effort! Preparation time is minimal for such a great way to start the day.
"Very tasty and healthy pancakes. There was a lot of work involved to get them ready for cooking so I don't know if these will be a regular on the menu. Maybe I'll try a couple of the shortcuts in the reviews before resigning these to special occasions."- madduck2k

In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the milk and butter until the butter melts and small bubbles appear around the edge. Remove from heat and stir in the oatmeal; let stand until cool.
On a paper, thoroughly stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon.
Whisk the egg yolks into the oatmeal mixture; add the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
Beat the egg whites until stiff; fold along with bananas, into the oatmeal mixture.
On a lightly greased hot griddle, using moderate heat, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls several inches apart; with a small spatula, spread each pancake until 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Cook until bubbles appear and top is slightly dry, about 3 minutes, turn and brown other side.
Serve with soft butter or margarine and maple syrup or honey.
Makes about 16 pancakes or 4 servings.
I have used this recipe for the last 30 plus years as a special occasion breakfast. I do not recall where the recipe came from, but this is one of my favorite breakfast creations.

Awmarsh 2 days 5 hours agoI traded out the sugar for Truvia and a little Agave, the butter for Canola oil, the flour for whole wheat, and liquified the oats with almond milk. I also added some nuts and used real maple syrup. Pretty darn good.
jswall1511 3 weeks agoI made these this morning and they were a big hit - nice change from regular pancakes. The changes I made to the recipe were adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the mashed bananas.

brookaveli 1 year agoVery good. I'm not very good at precision recipes and have screwed up pancakes before, but my wife loved it when she woke up to these on a Sunday morning!
HubertvanEyck 1 year agoDelicious, a bit more work than normal pancake recipes but worth it
uniqueheart 1 year agoThis recipe tastes good but I wont be making it again. Recipe is way to thick. No matter how much milk you put in it. Great idea though.
sarahlynch 1 year agoSo tasty and filling. My family wolfed them down! Great Saturday morning breakfast.
mayamurphy 1 year agoA complete meal in a pancake! I made them on the weekend and ate them all week. They didn't even get off the serving plate before I ate them without even adding syrup! I also used white wheat flour since its a little healthier. Guilt free!

JoeDon 1 year agoPancakes were a whole bunch of work for some just alright pancakes. My wife and I ate them but if I make them again I am going to have to modify the recipe. Definitely gonna mash or blend the bamamna and the fluffy egg whites were a waste of Tim.

ChefKrissyB 1 year agoFollowed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. Delicious way to start the weekend!
meganmesser 1 year agoGood but I made improvements, I added 2 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar to add more taste and 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Very good. Could use more flower next time
helenadillon 1 year agoThe whole family loved them
Kissedbygrace 1 year agoVery good recipe... I modified it as well:) I used 1 cup flour and 1 cup oats and added a ts vanilla. Also I threw everything in the blender because I knew my kids would prefer no chunks of banana in their pancakes
