No TwD for me! Give me Oatmeal Banana Pancakes instead.

*Sorry! No Tuesdays with Dorie for me today. I’m not a huge fan of gingerbread, so this week’s assignment (gingerbread baby cakes) had zero appeal to me. Instead, please enjoy this tasty pancake recipe from Fitness Magazine!

Sometimes a slight change in your meal routine can make you excited about eating breakfast again. This was the case with my usual yogurt/fruit combo. I had become bored and started skipping breakfast altogether. However, a recent issue of Fitness Magazine included a recipe for these oatmeal banana pancakes. I was intrigued because I was on my vegan cleanse and this quick and easy recipe fit the bill. I’ll admit: most recipes I’ve tried from Fitness don’t make the prettiest foods, but they are quite delicious and that’s what counts, right? Vegan or not, these pancakes are definitely recommended.

INGREDIENTS
3/4 c. almond milk
1/2 c. oatmeal
1 chopped banana
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
dash of salt
2 tsp. baking powder

Place the almond milk and oatmeal in a blender (I used my Magic Bullet) and blend until smooth. Add banana and blend for 30 seconds. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and blend just until combined. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Spray pan with vegan friendly butter spray and pour batter by half-cup full into pan. Cook on each side for approximately three minutes. Top with syrup, fresh banana, or walnuts.
