Oatmeal Banana Bread Pancakes

I want this

not this

I miss my kitchen!

I’m reminiscing about the birthday pancakes I made for my husband a few weeks back.

We had a busy morning that day. How I wish I could turn back the clock and be enjoying a bite of these Oatmeal Banana Bread Pancakes.

I saw these healthy pancakes from Amanda’s blog, Once Upon a Recipe. The recipe is from Canadian Living, but it was Amanda’s photos and generous  serving of peanut butter (my husband’s favorite pancake topping) that encouraged me to try the recipe.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A hearty breakfast. Serve with a fruit topping or a big dollop of peanut butter!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup rolled oats (large flake)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • oil, butter or cooking spray for griddle
  1. In a large bowl, whack together dry ingredients; flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl whack together wed ingredients; milk, eggs, bananas, butter and vanilla. Pour over dry mixture and stir until almost smooth. Let sit for 10 minutes (this is where the fluffy magic happens ;) )
  3. Heat nonstick griddle or skillet to medium heat and add cooking spray, butter or oil to pan. Pour ⅓ cup of batter for each pancake and cook until bubbles break on top and underside is golden, Flip. Top with your favorite topping.


The birthday candle was inspired by Heather at Sugar Dish Me. She had sprinkles and candles for her little boy’s special birthday morning :)

We are wishing we would have finished every bite of those pancakes!

I think my kitchen will be ready for action in a few days!  My recipe “must try” list is getting longer and longer!  Have a great weekend!

    Oh wow!! That looks absolutely delicious! I’ve heard of banana bread french toast before and banana bread pudding. But not banana bread pancakes!! I’m a huge fan of banana bread. Peanut butter would be the cherry on top of the cake. What a perfect breakfast!!

  4. I am so tickled that you made them! And enjoyed them too! Aren’t they just lovely? I am longing for the weekend when I can make them again!

  5. I saw these over at Once Upon a Recipe too and have been dying to make them. YUM. That big old dollop of PB has my mouth watering.

  6. Pancakes are my favorite breakfast. These look and sound delish!

  7. Pancakes and banana bread are both favourite breakfasts – your combination of both is heaven sent :D
