Banana Oatmeal Pancakes Preparation
In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the milk and butter until the butter melts and small bubbles appear around the edge. Remove from heat and stir in the oatmeal; let stand until cool.
On a paper, thoroughly stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon.
Whisk the egg yolks into the oatmeal mixture; add the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
Beat the egg whites until stiff; fold along with bananas, into the oatmeal mixture.
On a lightly greased hot griddle, using moderate heat, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls several inches apart; with a small spatula, spread each pancake until 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Cook until bubbles appear and top is slightly dry, about 3 minutes, turn and brown other side.
Serve with soft butter or margarine and maple syrup or honey.
Makes about 16 pancakes or 4 servings.
I have used this recipe for the last 30 plus years as a special occasion breakfast. I do not recall where the recipe came from, but this is one of my favorite breakfast creations.
