Banana Oat Pancakes

I love cold cereal and milk. I think I could eat some variation of cereal + milk everyday for breakfast for the rest of my life and be happy, but sometimes special occasions call for special breakfast. This past weekend the special occasion was General Conference, and the special breakfast was these banana oat pancakes. Delicious. The perfect combination of soft and chewy.

Banana Oat Pancakes

2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (or another 1/4 C all-purpose)
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 large eggs
2 bananas, mashed
2 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt or non-fat sour cream
1/4 cup milk (add more if your batter seems too thick)
1 Tbsp butter for griddle

1. Mix brown sugar, flours, oats, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl.
2. Whisk in the eggs, bananas, and yogurt/sour cream.
3. Add in milk incrementally until the batter moves in the bowl but isn't runny.
4. Preheat a non-stick pan or griddle and grease with butter.
5. Using a ladle, pour some batter onto the pan/griddle.
6. Flip pancake when the underside is golden brown.
7. Cook opposite side until golden brown and no longer wet on edges.
8. Serve warm.

Top with fruit, syrup, or eat them plain like we did. Even Elle devoured these, and she's been rather picky lately. We might need to have these for breakfast again soon.
