Easy Banana Bread Pancakes

I haven't blogged much this week...
and I'm not really apologizing for it either. 
  I have been enjoying time with my mom and working on all the last minute projects for Baby E (due in 16 days!!!) 
So, because all my projects from the week have yet to be edited, I decided to share a guest post that I did a few weeks back for A Girl and A Glue Gun Food Friday!

Enjoy!


Even tho I'm not a "food" blogger, I do love to cook! 
We especially love pancakes here at our house! 
I have two toddlers so we are eating them at least once a week, but would you believe I haven't bought pancake mix in years?

Easy Banana Bread pancakes from scratch

I started making pancakes from scratch because I'm cheap frugal, but then I learned that by making them from scratch I had total control over what goes in my pancakes, and most importantly what doesn't- like fats and added sugars!

When I say easy, that's what I mean. No fancy tools, just a mixing bowl and basic ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup All -purpose flour (you can sub whole wheat too!)
1 cup oats (I prefer the texture of Rolled oats, but you can use quick oats if that's what you got!)
3 tsp baking soda
Pinch of Kosher salt
1 cup of milk

Ingredients for banana bread pancakes


Instructions:

Step 1: Smash your 2 bananas with a fork in a large mixing bowl.

Step 4: Pour in 1 cup of milk until just combined. (it will have lumps from the banana and oats)

Step 5: You are now ready to spoon your batter onto a preheated griddle set at 325. I find a ice cream scoop works great for this part!

Step 7: Watch for bubbles to form and  for the outer edge of pancakes to look dry, then flip.

(sometimes you may get an uneven "poof" after you flip them. You can gently press them even with a spatula, but it usually resolves it's self..no worries!)

Time to serve! 
I always sprinkle my banana bread with cinnamon and sugar before baking, so that's the same way I serve these guys up. A little butter helps make them ooey - gooey delicious!

shhhh...I will let you in on my little secret, they are delicious plain too! 

You can even reheat them in a toaster if for some reason there are leftovers (which is highly unlikely...my 1 year old ate 4 of these the other morning!!)

I do hope you will give these a try!
