Top-ranked recipe named "Banana Oatmeal Pancakes"
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.

rodas_sophia 9 months agoModified 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.

Awmarsh 1 year 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 1 year 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 2 years 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!
