American pancakes with oatmeal and banana are a delicious and nutritious version of the classic breakfast. Made with mashed ripe bananas, oatmeal and familiar pancake ingredients such as flour, eggs, milk and baking powder, these pancakes have a unique flavour and extra texture. The oatmeal gives the pancakes a nutty flavour and extra texture, while the banana gives them a natural sweetness.
But how do you make American pancakes with oatmeal and banana?
To make American Oatmeal Banana Pancakes you only need a few basic ingredients. First, mix together the wholemeal or oat flour, baking powder, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mash the ripe bananas and add the eggs, BAM vanilla paste and milk of your choice. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Finally, stir in the oats.
Next, heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add a small amount of butter or oil.
When the pan is hot, form a pancake with one ladleful of the mixture. Fry the pancakes for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve the American pancakes while still warm.
These pancakes are not only tasty but also nutritious, as they are made with wholemeal or oat flour, which is an excellent source of dietary fibre and iron, and a good source of protein, especially when combined with eggs. Oatmeal and bananas also provide additional fibre, potassium and vitamins.
