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."

Are you making this? 
1 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup Butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups Quick-cooking oats; uncooked
1/3 cup Flour; Unsifted
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar or Splenda
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Eggs; separated
2 Banana; Ripe, peeled and diced

Original recipe makes 4



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.

Modified it as well with almond milk/l and adding vanilla extract. But next time definitely letting the oatmeal cook a bit before removing from the stove and smashing the bananas.

Amazing! My family raved about how good they were and asked me to make them again soon!

I 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.

I 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.

Very 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!
