Breakfast for dinner? Yes please! Pancakes and sausage… I have several different flavors of pancakes that I make and my family loves them all! One of my favorites is the Banana Oatmeal pancake (Whole Wheat Oatmeal Banana Pancake recipe below) that I made tonight. They are my favorite because I can eat peanut butter on them! Peanut butter is by far my favorite food; peanut butter ice cream is a close second! (haha) I’m not a fan of syrup – whether its real maple syrup or not; we actually buy the fake sugar free stuff lol. My husband isn’t a fan of real maple syrup either – I guess we’re both weird. One year prior to having children, for our Christmas gift to each other we took a long weekend ski trip to Killington, Vermont. We ate breakfast every morning at this cute little ‘syrup shack’ where you could watch them make their own maple syrup while you dined. We were probably the only people that didn’t order anything that required syrup!
Anyway, back to dinner – Banana Oatmeal pancakes… would make a good pre-race dinner I suppose, with all those yummy carbs. Some of our other fav’s, to be shared at a later date include: Pumpkin, blueberry, peach, and apple. Here’s the recipe, but remember I’m new to this blog stuff and hope to figure it out soon, so for now it’s nothing fancy with a ‘print here’ button or anything. I will try to learn quickly!
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
1 cup quick oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
MIX THESE DRY INGREDIENTS, THEN ADD:
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp veg. oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 overly ripe banana mashed & another normal banana cut into chunks
Let batter rest 5 min. If using electric griddle I set it to 300*.
They become so fluffy and satisfying – the picture doesn’t do it justice… something else I will try to improve!
