Ben’s Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

As I previously mentioned, Ben LOVES pancakes. He could and would eat them all day every day if I let him. I also really enjoy pancakes. When I went to the Netherlands a couple of years ago, I organized a trip on a pancake cruise in Rotterdam. It was a pretty epic event of all-you-can-eat pancakes and toppings. But,generally speaking, pancakes aren’t the greatest for you. I found a recipe for Oatmeal Pancakes on Pinterest, but was disappointed by the fact that there was vegetable oil and buttermilk in the batter. Then through some witchcraft and wizardry, I morphed the recipe into this delightful dish that contains NO oils and NO buttermilk. This recipe is only 185 calories per serving, less than 4 grams of fat, and very tasty.

Ben’s Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
Makes about 10 4″ pancakes
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (quick cooking)
1 medium banana, divided
1/4 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 vanilla yogurt
1/2 skim milk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor except half of the banana. Puree until smooth.
  2. When the batter is smooth, slice up the rest of the banana into chunks and fold into the batter.
  3. Heat a griddle or large frying pan to medium-high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle by the 1/4 cup full. Cook until golden brown on each side.
  4. Enjoy!
