Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

Yesterday my family and I had the most perfect day. We spent the morning running errands, came home and took a couple hours to rest individually, and spent the afternoon outside playing with our new pressure washer and barbecuing. Once we finished dinner I decided I wanted something sweet, so I whipped up some fresh cream and some Bisquick shortbread biscuits with some rosemary for the cream to melt on. It was delicious!

This morning I knew I had some extra cream to use so I decided pancakes would be perfect for this. I searched around Pinterest for all of 5 seconds before stumbling across this simply healthy recipe with FOUR ingredients! #winning I whipped it up in my mini food processor in about 3 minutes and then straight to the pan they went. My daughter ate them in minutes and even asked for seconds!!

I topped them off with some the remaining whipped cream, fresh blackberries, and a drizzle of honey.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
recipe adapted from Fitwirr

2 bananas
2 medium eggs
1/2 cup oatmeal (I used instant)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (for fluff!)
1/2 tablespoon vanilla (optional)

1) Mix ingredients in blender or food processor. If you’re using a mini food processor like I did, start with the oats, baking powder, and sliced banana. Once mixed, add each additional ingredient one at a time.
2) Heat non-stick pan on medium heat (the pancakes burn quickly!). Spray with non-stick cooking spray (I used PAM Baking).
3) Add batter to pan in 1/4 cup increments. Let sit until it looks firm (but not so long that it gets bubbly), about 60-90 seconds. Flip, and let set for 30-60 seconds.
4) Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy 🙂
