It is good to have old things prepared and presented in new ways or just have our memories brought up by some very good eats. How about making some oatmeal banana pancakes.
A buttermilk Oatcakes with Raspberry Compote recipe from eatingwell.com was downloaded for me by an RN in the Cardiac rehab unit where I was working at recovery (outpatient). This was early in 2016.
At eatingwell.com they have a number of pancake recipes the oatcakes and compote is one. http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/250427/buttermilk-oatcakes-with-raspberry-compote/
I thought that oatmeal pancakes were something I would not eat. The nurse had gotten the information copied so I thought why not make it up just once.
After picking up the ingredients I went ahead and made up the mix but not the compote. Also, I use quick oats most of the time not the regular oats.
It has been almost 2 years now and I eat oatmeal pancakes 4 or 5 mornings a week (For the health of it ). Though using my version of the recipe, and lots of variation with that.
I will share other variations to my” good eats ” Oatmeal pancakes which you might enjoy but today’s quick” Oat and Banana ” pancakes is as follows;
You will need
- 2 1/2 cups quick oats oatmeal
- 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 whole egg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups 1% or 2% milk
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sour cream
Measure out and place in a medium-size mixing bowl the dry ingredients and stir to mix the cinnamon baking powder and salt.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Once mixed you will need to let it set a short while for the oatmeal and flour to absorb the liquid about 10 to 15 minutes. If you find that the mix is still very wet add a 1/4 cup of oatmeal or flour at a time until the batter is the consistency you like.
The recipe yields 8 or so 4 oz pancakes (batter measure). Calories and other percentages vary based on the way you make up the batter and what you choose to top it with.
Oatmeal pancakes have a heavier texture than your regular pancake mix. You will also at times have pancakes with a texture like oatmeal. Both of these textures are fine and of no bother if you already eat and enjoy oatmeal.
I like my oatmeal pancakes with Country Crock spread and brown sugar. You can use whatever topping you like.
