These oatmeal pancakes from my cookbook “Super Foods for Super Kids Cookbook” are easy to make, low in added sugar, but packed with flavour. We love to make them on the weekend for brunch, and save the extra for quick and easy breakfasts during the week.
I have copied the directions directly from the book to here so it is actually written to kids, but don’t worry, its a great recipe for us moms to make too!
Here is the recipe:
“Out of This World” Oatmeal Pancakes
Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15-25 minutes
Ingredients to Have:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 cup milk
1 ripe banana
1/3 cup applesauce
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Mash the banana. Peel the banana and place it into your mixing bowl. Then use a fork to mash it down.
- Mix the wet ingredients. Add applesauce, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla to the bowl the mashed banana is in. Stir until all ingredients are blended together.
- Add the dry ingredients. Add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and flour. Stir until they are blended but try to not over mix.
- Set mixture aside. Get a stove top pan and set it on one of the front burners. Carefully turn on the burner you have chosen to medium heat. (If you are using a gas stove remember to ensure that the flame is lit and not just leaking gas.)
- Cook the pancakes. Pour 1/3 cup pancake mix into the pan and let it cook for about 4 minutes. Once that side is cooked, carefully use a flat spatula to lift it about an inch above the pan and quickly turn it over. Cook the second side for an additional 3-5 minutes. If it looks done, then use your flat spatula to move it to a plate. If it needs more time to cook, then leave it in the pan for an additional few minutes.
- Repeat step 5 with remaining batter. If you have a large pan you can cook more than one pancake at once.
- Turn the stove off. When you have cooked all pancakes, turn the stove off and place the hot pan on a hot pad or in the sink.
Enjoy with your favourite fruit, yogurt, nut butter, and/or maple syrup. Delish!
