Yield: 5 pancakes

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • 1 cup dry old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp fine ground sea salt
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 5 tbsp non-fat milk
  • Chopped banana for serving (optional)


  1. Place the oats in a small food processor and pulse until they are ground fine and resemble a coarse flour.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the banana and egg about 1 minute, until blended.
  3. Stir in the vanilla and cinnamon. Next add the baking powder and sea salt. Stir well.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the oats and whole wheat flour. Gradually add these dry ingredients, a little at a time, as you continue to stir. Finally fold in the milk to form a loose batter.
  5. Preheat a medium-skillet or griddle sprayed with non-stick cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup of the batter to the skillet for each pancake. Cook 1 ½ to 2 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown and the pancake bubbles. Flip and cook an additional 1 ½ to 2 minutes.
  6. Serve warm with chopped bananas, if desired.
