What Tastes Like Banana Bread, Looks Like a Pancake, and Is Loaded With Oatmeal Heartiness?

I was reading in one of my parenting books recently about how good oatmeal is for kids. I tried feeding Elliot some good old fashioned oatmeal, but he wasn’t having it. Even when I spiced things up with raisins, brown sugar, or apples, Elliot just didn’t care for oatmeal.

I came across this recipe for oatmeal pancakes and decided to give it a shot. I added the cinnamon for that extra zing and Elliot went crazy for these pancakes. They are super fluffy and really good with butter and a little bit of syrup.

If you add banana slices just after the first time you flip them, they come out tasting like banana bread.

These pancakes taste amazing and are a great way to get your kids eating oatmeal! Enjoy!


1 1/3 c. wheat flour

2/3 c. quick-cooking oats

2 tbs. sugar

2 ½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

1 egg

1 1/3 c. milk

3 tablespoons melted butter or margarine

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

2. In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Beat in the milk and butter.

3. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined; let stand 5 minutes.

4. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Brush the skillet lightly with butter, margarine, or oil. For each pancake, drop 3 tablespoons of batter onto the skillet. Cook until one or two bubbles start to burst on the top; turn and cook until golden on the bottom.
