Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

I have had the laziest day off today and have been watching the food network all day. I hate to admit it by I am in my PJ’s still and it’s 7pm! I just got done watching Rachel Ray and she made these delicious looking pancakes and I had to immediately go to the kitchen and whip them up for dinner. I am actually typing out his recipe in-between flipping the pancakes. They smell absolutely amazing and I have already cheated and ate one fresh from the griddle and they are so amazing. The brown sugar, and the banana’s and the walnuts, it’s like bananas foster in a pancake. I can’t wait to hunker back down on the couch and indulge myself with more of these delectable treats.

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 ounces, 1/4 cup, chopped walnuts
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 really ripe bananas, mashed up
½ cup vegetable oil
Butter, for buttering skillet
Maple syrup or honey, for drizzling

Mix dry ingredients, the first 7, in a bowl. In a another bowl, mix the wet ingredients, the next 4. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined, then fold in the mashed up bananas. Stir in the oil.
Heat a griddle over medium heat and brush with butter. Cook pancakes, each about 1/3 cup, until bubbles form on the top, then turn. Cakes will cook in about 2 minutes on each side. Keep pancakes tented with foil as they come off the griddle to keep them hot. Serve with drizzled honey or maple syrup over the top.
