whole wheat oatmeal and banana pancakes

on sunday morning wes requested banana pancakes. hawaii has the best bananas in the whole universe and we eat a million more bananas than we ever did before we moved to the island. (just a quick shout out to my friend, banana.) anyway, i am on a health kick since coming home from our five week eating frenzy so i quickly searched for a super healthy banana pancake that i could feel good about eating. this is defiantly a keeper, and i recommend you try them too. and if you care at all, 2/3 cup of batter or 2 of the pancakes pictured are only 7 weight watcher points. 


  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 banana, mashed


  1. Place the rolled oats into the jar of a blender and blend until the texture resembles coarse flour. Whisk together the blended oats, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside.
  2. In blender, blend together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla and banana. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop 1/3 of a cup of batter onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
