Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes

My kids LOVE pancakes (what kid doesn't) so I like to mix it up a little every once and awhile and do something a little different...and they LOVE these just as much :)

2 c. flour
2 T. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c. rolled oats
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 eggs
2 c. milk
1/4 c. oil
2 bananas, 1 mashed & 1 chopped

Mix together dry ingredients with a whisk.  Add eggs, milk and oil all at once an mix until just combined.  Add mashed bananas, try not to over mix and then gently stir in chopped bananas.
Spoon onto a hot, lightly greased griddle and cooked until puffed, bubbly & light golden brown, flip and continue to cook until light golden brown on the second side.  Keep warm in a low oven, covered with foil, until ready to serve.

If your wondering, for the "usual" pancakes omit the oats, cinnamon, & bananas.

Some of my favorite pancake add-ins:

*halved, pitted fresh cherries
*pecans & a little brown sugar
*whole wheat...substitute 3/4 c. of the flour for wheat flour
*mini chocolate chips & banana slices (pour batter onto griddle the drop bananas & chocolate chips on)
*finely chopped apples & cinnamon

What are your favorites??

Sounds yummy! Have you got any syrup recipes? I'm not such a maple fan & I'm always trying something different.
