Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup chopped unsalted pecans
  • Cooking spray OR butter

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the two types of flour, oats, baking powder, and cinnamon.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Add the milk, egg, and vanilla to the mashed banana and stir.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon. (It is fine if the batter is chunky.) Add the blueberries and pecans to the batter and stir.
  4. Heat a frying pan or griddle to medium high heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray or coat with butter. Pour the batter onto the hot pan in pancake circles.
  5. Heat on one side until tiny bubbles start to form in the pancake (about 3-4 minutes). (If the pancake gets too dark, turn the heat down slightly.) Flip the pancake and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side. Top with banana slices, a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar, or a drizzle of syrup

Recipe Notes

Tip: To keep the pancakes hot while making multiple batches, place them in a heated oven.
