Mmmm …yum!  So yummy, in fact, that I started eating before I snapped a picture!

What a great way to start Sunday – a pancake breakfast and I didn’t have to cook!  I made up the recipe, inspired by a couple recipes from Food Magazine’s recent ‘50 Pancakes & Waffles‘ insert, as my husband frantically searched for ingredients and threw it all together.  Does it get any better?  He even made a delish fruit smoothie that my son gobbled up so quickly that he got brain freeze!  Poor kid, he had no idea what hit him!

Banana Oat & Bran Pancakes

Whisk together:

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup whole oats
  • 1/2 cup wheat flakes
  • 3 tablespoons splenda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Whisk together:

  • 3/4 cups milk (a little more if you like thinner pancakes)
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 stick melted butter
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • a little vanilla

Now whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined.  Lumps are ok.  Pour 1/4 cupfuls onto your hot frying surface, flip once bubbles form then cook til golden brown.

For the Syrup, put fruit of choice (berries are awesome!) in a pot, add a little agave syrup and cook til fruit is soft then mash it up and serve warm.  You use far less syrup this way – and  you get to add another colour to your Rainbow for the day!
