Just recently my husband and I have been on a banana kick. Chocolate covered bananas, bananas, in cereal, bananas in smoothies, banana yogurt, and even banana frozen yogurt! Then my husband told me he had never had a pancake with banana slices inside.. Say what?! Sometimes I even put strawberries and apples in my pancakes too. He’s never had fruit in a pancake, so I had to remedy that quick!

You haven’t lived until you have tried banana pancakes. Lately, we’ve been trying to reduce the amount of milk we drink and limiting it to only cereal so it was only natural that I’d make my pancakes with Silk milk. It was a pleasant surprise how well our pancakes turned out and I’ve been using alternative milk for more than just pancakes.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Oatmeal

We put the banana slices right on top of the pancake as we place the batter into the pan. The bananas get nice and warm and the chocolate chips melt. It’s the perfect chocolate banana combination. Sometimes instead of syrup, we’ll enjoy these pancakes with some a drizzle of homemade nut butter to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes, yum!

Oatmeal Flour

How to make oatmeal flour:

You’ll simply place oatmeal into a high-speed blender and process them. Once they are fully processed you will have homemade oatmeal flour. This is a great way to save money and space since you don’t need to actually buy oatmeal flour.

Substitute for Buttermilk

Mix 3/4 cup soy milk with 1 1/2 tablespoons of vinegar to make a dairy free buttermilk substitute. If you’re not dairy free you can use regular milk the same way we are using the soy milk.

We let the batter sit a little, for about 5 minutes before making to allow the baking powder to do its thing. Once we start seeing it thicken a bit we’ll start cooking the pancake batter to turn it into delicious pancakes!
