I absolutely loved these pancakes. They were hearty and delicious and I loved Dude’s take on the toppings here: chocolate chips & strawberries! Yum!
Oatmeal Banana Buttermilk Pancakes
1 ½ cups oatmeal (quick or old fashioned oats)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 overripe banana, mashed smooth
2 cups buttermilk
4 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Chocolate Chips & Strawberries, to serve
If using old fashioned oats, place them into a small food processor and pulse several times until the oats are roughly chopped (do not process into powder).
In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, and salt. Then, add the banana, buttermilk, and butter and stir until just combined.
Heat a skillet to medium heat and grease generously with butter (alternately, heat and electric skillet to 375 degrees F and grease with butter.)
Cook the pancakes until the bottoms are deeply browned, then flip and cook until the second side is browned.
Serve with chocolate chips or strawberries or a drizzle of maple syrup.
Makes about 20 4-inch pancakes
