Finger Lickin’ Good: Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Finger Lickin’ Good


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:


  1. Put the rolled oats into a blender and blend until it becomes a powdery texture.
  2. 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.
  3. Whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla into another bowl.
  4. Mix in a mashed banana to the mixture in step 3.
  5. 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.
  6. Heat the mixture over a slightly oiled griddle on medium temperature.
  7. 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!
