Healthy Recipes: Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

banana-oat pancakes


½ cup Old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup Water

2 Tablespoons Light brown sugar

2 Tablespoons Canola oil

½ cup Whole wheat flour

½ cup All-purpose flour

1 ½ teaspoons Baking powder

¼ teaspoon Baking soda

¼ teaspoon Salt

¼ teaspoon Ground cinnamon    

½ cup Skim milk

¼ cup Non-fat plain yogurt

1 each Mashed banana

1 each Egg



    • In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine the oats and water.
    • Microwave on high until the oats are creamy and tender; about three minutes.
    • Stir in brown sugar and canola oil; set aside to cool slightly.
    • In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon; whisk to blend.
    • Add the milk, yogurt, and mashed banana to the oats and stir until well blended; beat in the egg.
    • Add the flour mixture to the oat mixture and stir until just moistened.
    • Place a nonstick frying pan or griddle over medium heat; once hot, spoon ¼ cup pancake batter into the pan.
    • Cook until the top surface of the pancake is covered with bubbles and the edges are lightly browned; about two minutes.
    • Flip the pancake and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
    • Repeat with remaining pancake batter.
    • Serve with sugar-free maple syrup or even bananas foster.

Chef’s Note:  If cooking for one person, make the recipe as normal. Let leftover pancakes cool, bag them and then freeze for a later day. Top your pancakes with fresh fruit and berries to add even more flavor!
