Welcome to Finger Lickin’ Good, where every week we look at a different recipe. We’ll go over how to make the food, when to make it, and what events and such to bring it to. This week, we’re talking about a recipe that makes for a delicious breakfast, and an alternative to regular breakfast foods if you’re looking for a change of taste. We’re talking about whole wheat oatmeal banana pancakes.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1 cup of uncooked rolled oats
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons dry milk powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 mashed banana
This meal will take about 30 minutes to make. Half of it will be prep, and the other half will be making the meal. Here are the steps:
- Put the rolled oats into a blender and blend until it becomes a powdery texture.
- Whisk together the oats, the whole wheat flour, the brown sugar, the all purpose flour, the baking powder, the dry milk powder, and the salt into a separate bowl.
- Whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla into another bowl.
- Mix in a mashed banana to the mixture in step 3.
- Pour the mixture in step 3 into the mixture in step 2 and stir until it becomes slightly wet. Then let it sit for 5 minutes.
- Heat the mixture over a slightly oiled griddle on medium temperature.
- Drop the mixture into pancake shaped blotches onto the griddle. Flip after 2 minutes and wait for both sides to brown.
This recipe would be great for a breakfast that you want to make for your family, or a girlfriend, if you want to impress them with your cooking skills. It’s easy, it tastes great, and it’s unique. The only time I wouldn’t recommend this is when you need a breakfast on the go, because it takes about 30 minutes to make. But it’s fantastic for large groups, especially after a sleepover. It’ll also do wonders to settle your stomach when you feel sick. It offers a good, healthy alternative to the normal syrup-drizzled flapjacks.
That’s all from Finger Lickin’ Good, I’ll see you next week for another great recipe!
