Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Slightly crispy on the outside, moist, buttery and sweet on the inside.
Prep Time 10 mins


  • 1 cup large-flake oatmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain yogourt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or vegetable oil


  • In a large bowl, stir together oatmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In another large bowl, mash banana with a masher or fork. Whisk in eggs and yogourt. Stir in milk and vanilla. Make a hole or a well in mixture, pour in banana mixture and stir until blended. Stir in melted butter.
  • Coat a large frying pan with butter and set over medium heat until hot. When butter is foamy drop the batter by ΒΌ cupfuls, spacing the pancakes about 2 inches apart. You should be able to fit about 3 or 4 in the pan. Be careful not to crowd pan. Cook until holes form on the top, and the edges are golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook until golden brown on each side, about 3 to 4 min more. Remove to a platter. Cover to keep warm or hold warm in an oven heated to 275F. Top with maple syrup and icing sugar if desired.
