Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

These pancakes have less sodium per serving than other pancakes made from mixes. Decrease sodium even further by stretching the mix with banana, oats and walnuts. In our house we just sprinkle these with a little confectioners' sugar, because the fruit is so sweet you don't need syrup. — Patricia Swart, Galloway , New Jersey

    I made these today with hodgson mill whole wheat pancake mix. I cut the recipe in half and it made 9 pancakes using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. I used one large frozen ripe banana. I also substituted out a half cup of unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of cow's milk. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and a splash of pure vanilla extract for a flavor enhancement. I did omit the walnuts. I will definitely make again. Instead of maple syrup, I slathered them with natural peanut butter.

    I didn't have whole wheat pancake mix, so I used a buttermilk complete mix. Also added about 1tablespoon flax seed. Yum! My husband isn't a big pancake fan, but he liked these!

    Awesome recipe! I topped them off with sliced bananas and blueberries! One thing that needs to be said, the texture is not as crumbly as a normal pancake. It has the texture of a potato pancake, or you might say the texture is somewhere between that of a pancake and banana pudding. Make sure you have a good turner with which to flip these very soft pancakes. I love the concept - like eating banana pudding for breakfast.

    My family agrees: no need to add syrup! Excellent (and thanks to TOH for the recommendation on using Kodiak Cakes pancakes; they're a healthy new fave at our house!).
