Welcome to Breakfast Week! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My whole family loves pancakes so when I saw this I knew I had to share it with the rest of you.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour (see below for instructions on making your own)
  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup diced walnuts (optional)
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together. in another mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except blueberries. Pour wet mixture into dry, and stir until combined and most lumps disappear; fold in blueberries.

Heat griddle to 350°, or until a drop of water sizzles when dropped on griddle. Spray griddle with nonstick cooking spray, and pour on 1/4 cup pancake mix. Turn pancakes over when they begin to dry around the edges and are golden on the bottom. if desired, top pancakes with additional blueberries and banan- as, and drizzle with 100% pure maple syrup.

Tip: To make oat flour, add old- fashioned oats to a blender (1 cup oats makes 1 cup flour), and blend until a flour-like consistency is achieved.
