Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Everyone knows a healthy breakfast is a great way to kick-start the day.  On school days, I get the privilege of babysitting my two grandsons and part of my responsibilities is to feed them breakfast.  2-year-old Joey loves pancakes or oatmeal.  This recipe uses both of those breakfast items in one delicious and, as it turns out, healthier breakfast.  Might I suggest you add chocolate chips to the batter in place of the cinnamon for a special treat.

I like to make the pancakes, separate with wax paper and then freeze.  Just pop in the toaster or microwave when needed. This recipe makes about 15 pancakes.

In large bowl, mix together:
1 cups AP Flour
1 cup Oats, Old Fashioned
1 Tabl. Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon (or 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips)
In another bowl, whisk together:
1-1/2 cups Buttermilk
1 cup Ripe Banana, mashed with fork
1 tsp/ Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
3 Tabl. Butter, melted
Mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Lightly grease or spray griddle.  Pour batter onto hot griddle.  Wait until bubbles show on the entire surface.  Flip over and cook the other side.  To make the tenderest pancakes, only flip over once.
Serve with butter and or warmed syrup.
