Oatmeal pancakes

This is a recipe that I borrowed from my daughter. She has been making it for herself so she doesn’t have to eat my pancakes. Then I realized it is actually good. The pancakes are very simple but nutritious and delicious. Basic ingredients are oatmeal, eggs, bananas … oatmeal, eggs, bananas … oatmeal, eggs, bananas … that is it and just add a few things to make it taste better. Of course, this is a very kid friendly recipe.

Dairy free and gluten free with the substitution of gluten-free oats. 

RECIPE

Serving: generous portion for 1 adult

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of old fashioned oatmeal, coarsely ground (use gluten-free for gluten free version)
  • 1 1/2 crushed ripe banana
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, I used apple spice (optional)
  • pinch of salt
  • lemon zest (optional)
  • oil for baking
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • syrup of your choice
  • fruits (optional)

Preparation

  • Lightly beat eggs in a medium sized bowl.
  • Mash the banana and add to the bowl.
  • Add 1/2 cup of oatmeal to a blender and blend until you get a coarse flour consistency. Add to the bowl.
  • Add baking soda, cinnamon, lemon zest, salt. Mix.
  • Just like any other grains, I like to let the mixture soak for a few hours but it can be baked right away.
  • Bake in a preheated oiled pan on medium low heat on both sides for 3-4 minutes. Flip over and bake for a few minutes. Both sides should be nice and golden brown in color.
  • You can add fruits on top of the pancakes while baking in the pan.
  • Serve with fruits, nuts and syrup.

enjoy!
