"A basic whole-grain pancake to get you going in the morning. We also like to change it up a bit by adding 1/2 cup applesauce and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon instead of the banana."

  1. Place the rolled oats into the jar of a blender and blend until the texture resembles coarse flour. Whisk together the blended oats, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, dry milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Stir in the mashed banana. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Quick tips - I omitted powdered milk, no biggie - Used all whole wheat flour (no all-purpose), still great - Blended quick oats to a flour-like texture and that worked perfectly - Rather than ma...

I thought this recipe was okay. The main photo looks fantastic. Mine did rise up, because of the amount of baking powder, but the browning was definitely not as perfect looking or the shape. How...

I thought these were awesome! I made a half-recipe since I was just cooking for my boyfriend and myself and it yielded 8 pancakes, 1/4 cup of batter each. To make them more healthy I used (for 3...

I made these according to recipe, only adding a little nutmeg and cinnamon and using lowfat buttermilk instead of plain milk. With most pancake recipes that use oatmeal, I let the batter sit on ...

Great recipe! The only changes I made here was to use quick cooking oats (didn't place in the blender), I added 2 bananas instead of 1, I also omitted the sugar and it was just perfect. I think...

I was 1/2 asleep this am when I made these - and missed the whole grinding the oats step - yikes! Decided to forge ahead and make them anyhow - and WOW! They are so delicious! If you can mess up...

A very good pancake. I recommend using less sugar and more banana. I liked it best with an additional egg, some flax, and chopped strawberries in the mix. It has a subtle oatty flavor, which I r...

YUM! These were delish and healthy! I added an extra banana and about a tsp of cinnamon, and am glad I did. I think they may have been a little bland without this. I didn't have any of the drie...

These turned out really well. I used three ripe bananas, used less milk (less than a cup), and they were moist and yummy. I also added a tsp of cinnamon and a 1/4 nutmeg.

These pancakes are FANTASTIC! My almost-one-year-old and I just gobbled them up for breakfast. What a terrific way to incorporate some additional nutrition into her (our) favorite breakfast. T...
