Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Ever the pancake lover that I am, this recipe in the Chatelaine Holiday Edition 2008, caught my eye. They may take a little longer to prepare than your average pancake, but then - these are not your average flapjack! Here is my version.

Ingredients:

1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 eggs
1 cup vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
2 ripe bananas, chopped

Method:
  1. Preheat griddle between low and medium heat
  2. In large bowl, combine dry ingredients
  3. In another beat eggs, add yogurt, milk and butter. Stir in finely chopped bananas
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry, stirring until blended
  5. Drop by extra large spoonfuls onto pre-heated griddle. You don't want to cook these too quick, because they are quite thick. Turn over once you see tiny bubbles forming on top. If they are too dark, turn down the temperature.
This recipe makes 16 pancakes. Left-overs can be frozen and reheated in the toaster or microwave.

  7. I love this recipe! I made them for my children this morning. So good. I love that there is not extra sugar added, the ripe bananas add just the right amount of sweetness :) Thanks for sharing! This is going to replace the old flapjack repice for sure!

    I'm not sure where to send this suggestion, but it would be so great if there were more than a couple recipes on the first page (it can be changed in the settings), to allow a leisurely scroll through the most recent recipes. I have MGCC on my bloglines, but my husband LOVES scrolling through and finding recipes here, so it's for him too! :)

  13. Kelly. . .I also like the scrolling but I wonder if it is taking too long for people to load the blog if I put too many on. . I'll try adding a few more ..and see if we get any feedback.
    Thank you,
    Lovella

  15. I prepare a banana pancakes batter using flour and yogurt without adding oatmeal, I cook pancakes for my husband, and from the same recipe I do waffles for me.
    I like the addition of oatmeal for crunchy texture..I like to try it next time.

  18. I made a double batch of these today. Pancakes make so many dishes to wash so I always double and freeze to have 'freebies' later. :)
    These are great. I did make a few substitutes.
    plain yogurt + 2T rapadura (unrefined sugar) in place of the vanilla yogurt.
    I only had rolled oats, so I mixed them with the milk and yogurt and let it sit 5 minutes before I started the recipe to let them soften.
    I added some cinnamon (cause I really like cinnamon)
    Everyone, including my 'I don't like pancakes' child, loved them!
    Thanks

  19. My name is Ellie and I am Charlotte's niece and I can't tell you all enough how much I LOVE this site! I am on it multiple times a week to answer the age old question: "What will I make for supper?" I have tried many of your recipes and they've all turned out wonderfully. Charlotte told me that I should post comments to let you know when I liked a recipe, so I will start with this pancake recipe. I made them last night and they were soooooooooo good!!!! Thanks for posting the recipe, Anneliese :) It is a winner!

  23. I have recently found your site and am loving it!!! This is the first recipe I've made and have many more to go! Especially the mennonite recipes. I made these pancakes with whole wheat flour as well. They were delicious! Thanks for your labour of love in putting this blog site together!

  25. Okay, these look awesome, I'm prepping them right now, but I was wondering if anyone knows how many will be made if I use 1/4 cup of batter?

  26. I have a grandson who is allergic to dairy and eggs. Wondering if you could have a section for these allergies like you do for gluten-free recipes? LOVE you site. Made the air buns this afternoon. Yum!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Annonymous, It usually takes a need in our fmaily to have to cook a certain way. I can suggest almond milk or rice milk for dairy allergies. Some with dairy allergies can even handle yogurt.... but I have no suggestions about the eggs. If someone has any ideas, feel free to share.

  28. You can make an egg substitute (for baking purposes) by mixing ground flax and water.

  29. You can also make chia eggs! SO healthy!
