Quick & Easy Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

The October issue of <a href="http://tinyurl cytotec dosage.com/3l6d2vb”>Dash has an interesting recipe for Oatmeal Banana Pancakes that starts with a mix.  As someone who hasn’t used a pancake mix for years, I hesitated to try this but decided that, in a pinch, it might come in handy.  IF it’s tasty, that is.  So I bought a small box of Hungry Jack Complete Pancake Mix and whipped up a batch.

My hungry Jack liked them so it’s a keeper.  They were light and fluffy.  Just right.

Here’s the recipe…the italics are my notes/adjustments/additions:

2 cups Hungry Jack complete pancake and waffle mix
1-1/3 cups water
1/2 cup uncooked quick oatmeal
1 large ripe mashed banana
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Stir pancake mix with water until smooth.  Add oatmeal, banana, vanilla extract, and walnuts.  Fry pancakes on a greased, heated griddle until golden brown on both sides.  Serve hot with maple syrup.

I added the vanilla to balance out the banana and enhance the flavor of the walnuts.  I like bananas and I like them in baked goods but sometimes they’re just a little too “banana-y”, in my opinion.  1/2 teaspoon of the vanilla was just right, I think.

It would be interesting to try this with my old favorite Betty Crocker homemade pancake recipe…just throw in the oatmeal, banana and nuts.
