Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

slightly adapted

Dry Ingredients:
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Wet Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sour cream (I used plain yogurt)
3/4 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup raisins, optional
1/4 cup butter, melted

Tip: if you cannot find really ripe bananas, just nuke them in the microwave for about 15 seconds and they will become super soft for mashing.


Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. In a another bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined, then fold in the mashed up bananas and the raisins. Stir in the melted butter.

Heat a griddle over medium heat and brush with additional melted butter. Pour about 1/3 cup batter and cook pancakes
until bubbles form on the top, then turn. Pancakes will cook in about 2 minutes on each side. Keep pancakes tented with foil as they come off the griddle to keep them hot. Serve with drizzled honey or maple syrup over the top. (I just sprinkled them with a little powdered sugar and they were delicious.)
