  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Cook Time: 8m
  • Total Time: 18m
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup oats, old-fashioned or quick cooking
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/8 cup walnuts, chopped
  • banana slices
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl mix the oats, wheat flour, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix in milk, egg, oil, and walnuts.
  2. While the pancake batter rests, heat a griddle pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until a drop of water "skittles" across it and evaporates. (I heat my electric griddle pan to 350°.)
  3. Spray griddle or nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Pour about a 1/2 cup of batter onto griddle and place sliced bananas on top of each pancake; cook until the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges are dry, flip and cook until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side.

You could use all white flour or all wheat flour, I  just happened to like the 50/50 mixture. Look here for more information on the benefits of replacing white flour with wheat flour. For  a very informative article on the health benefits of bananas go to www.well-beingsecrets.com.
