Dan's Awesome(r) Pancakes

These are a bit healthier version of Dan's Awesome Pancakes.  They're still delicious, but are a bit more filling.  They have some oatmeal in them and are 100% whole wheat.  Dan uses King Arthur's White Whole Wheat Flour in a lot of baked goods, it adds the goodness of whole grains without the heaviness of typical whole wheat flour.


3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup light whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoons salt
Pinch or two of cinnamon

1 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup whole milk
2 eggs
1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 smashed ripe bananas


Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk to aerate the dry ingredients. In smaller bowl, combine wet ingredients, except butter and bananas. Whisk until smooth. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; fold in butter and bananas.


Heat a lightly oiled frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Dollop small amounts of batter on the prepared griddle to make pancakes of desired size. Drop a few frozen blueberries on each pancake. Let cook until edges of pancake firm up and small bubbles form on the top, then flip. Let cook until each side is golden brown. Serve immediately or let cool and place in freezer bag to enjoy in the future.

We enjoy these fresh fruit and real maple syrup, Baby Girl enjoys them plain or with some yogurt.
