Banana Oat Pancakes

I concocted these fluffy banana oatmeal pancakes using a muffin recipe. We love them topped with strawberry jam for breakfast, supper or even just snacking. They're delicious drizzled with maple syrup, too. —Janie Obermier, St. Joseph, Missouri

    Love these! I recommend that you slightly precook the oatmeal in the milk with the butter prior to adding to the dry mix - about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes. Let cool while you prep the dry mix and mash banana. Definitely add salt - 1/2 teaspoon. Depending on how dry your batter looks, you may need to add a splash of milk so the batter is not too thick. That should help prevent sticking to pans when cooking as well!

    These pancakes tasted great and were easy to mix up. I sometimes add chopped pecans or walnuts for extra taste and flavor.

    These pancakes were delicious! Hubby and I loved them! I sprayed my griddle with cooking spray. I didn't have any problems with them sticking to my griddle. Perfect!!

    My husband and I really enjoyed these pancakes! I did substitute brown sugar for the white sugar and added a little extra oil to the skillet about halfway through to keep the pancakes from sticking. We thought this recipe was a nice change of pace from traditional pancakes.

    We really enjoyed this banana pancake! Plus, it's a little healthier than our traditional pancakes.

    My family loved the pancakes and I loved the recipe, so easy to make and tasty.. I didn't have problems with sticky skillet, I used Teflon skillet and a little butter before each pancake =)

    Loved the recipe. I added 1/2 t or so of salt and mixed half wheat and half white flour. Then topped the pancake with peanut butter and maple syrup. Yum!

    I made this as a special breakfast for my young boys while the oldest was on Spring Break and they both Loved them! They asked me to make them again sometime. I even used white whole wheat and couldn't tell any difference.

    My family loved these! The banana flavor is very light, which I like. With bananas and oatmeal these have to be better for us then the more traditional pancakes. Mine seemed to stick to my skillet though.

    My family loved these pancakes and they are more nutritious than traditional pancakes. The only problem I had was they stuck to the griddle when I cookednthem. Any suggestions?
