Healthy and Delicious Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

These pancakes are so yummy plus they are so much healthier than a regular pancake. If your used to boxed pancake mix, these will take a few extra minutes to prepare but are so worth it! Serve them with some peanut butter and a little syrup, YUMMY!

Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: 10 minutes  Serves: 6 (2 pancakes serving)

What You Need:
1 1/2 C quick cooking or old fashioned oats
1 T baking powder
1/2 t (scant) salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 C whole wheat flour (if using old fashioned oats you may need to increase to ~3/4 C)
1/2 C white flour
1 T brown sugar
2 C milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 t vanilla
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 C apple sauce

How To Do It:
Combine all of the dry ingredients until well blended. Stir in milk, eggs, vanilla, banana and apple sauce. Let sit 3-5 minutes. If you feel that the batter is to thin, add a little more wheat flour until it reaches your desired consistency.

Make pancakes in a pan or on a griddle set to medium to medium-high. I can make 12 1/2 C pancakes on my griddle in two batches. I just use the 1/2 C measuring cup. Cook until sides look slightly dry and there are bubbles forming on the top of the pancake (~ 3 minutes) then flip and cook for ~1 minute.
