Banana pancakes

Sometimes ideas come to you randomly and out of the blue.  This is exactly what happened a few weeks ago to me.    It came in the middle of the day, and not even in themiddle of a conversation.   I received a text from my friend Shantel.  Shantel and I do text each other frequently, so receiving a text was not that random.  However, the text read, “You need to try 4 ingredient banana pancakes for a foodie Friday video on Youtube.”   Yeah, I was hooked just from that line!


Of course I made the pancakes. (although I now add a fifth ingredient!)  Of course I made a video!   And now it is time to share with you!  It’s easy, tasty and choke full of nutrition!


BANANA PANCAKES

Ingredients

1 banana

1 egg

¼ cup oatmeal, uncooked

¼ tsp baking powder

Dash of cinnamon (optional)

 

Instructions:

1.        Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until ingredients are well incorporated (the longer you blend the more the oatmeal will break up and create a smoother batter).

2.       Heat a skillet on the stove.  Spray with non-stick spray (I use an Olive Oil spray).

3.       Pour a generous amount of the batter into the pan and allow to cook on one side until golden brown (large bubbles will appear on the top to help indicate that it is ready to turn)

4.       Flip the pancake and cook the other side until golden brown.

5.       Eat immediately.  

I have eaten these with butter and maple syrup. I have had these with butter and chocolate syrup.  And oh my, I just thought about maybe trying them with peanut butter!  That sounds delicious also doesn’t it?   Oh the possibilities!


Thank you Shantel for a winning recipe!  These are as delicious as you said in your text!
