Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

After my crazy intense Fat Burning  workout by BodyRock.tv, I was listening to my iPod while stretching.

The song “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson was on my cool down play list. All night I was dreaming about banana pancakes and morning couldn’t come quick enough!

First thing in the morning I made a clean eating oatmeal banana pancake breakfast to start my day!

Oh, did I mention that I played the “Banana Pancakes song while making them!

  2. So healthy yet so very delicious. I could eat this for breakfast or lunch or dinner!

  3. Oatmeal pancakes are so yummy and I love the addition of walnut! (Jack Johnson is pretty great too :))

    • Jack Johnson is pretty hot too!lol Too bad he’s not touring in the US this summer. I want to take my oldest son to see him since my son plays the guitar it would be nice for him to see a live performance.

  4. Lisa girl, this just looks sinful. Right now I;m imaging this with some ice cream on top. I know, I know, healthy thoughts. But I can’t help it lol. I need a “Cheat day” already. I just love visiting here and I love this recipe.

  5. Lisa, I’m printing this out right away! I do crave pancakes every now and gluten free using the oat flour will be perfect for me!

  6. Oooh! Healthy pancakes! Yum! That’s not that many weight watcher’s points at all – and for four small pancakes. Fantastic! Every single one of these would eat these for sure – for breakfast or dinner. :)

  7. pancakes and with oat flour and bananas! nice combination – very healthy! walnut must give it that extra crunch…

  8. Gotta love J squared. I also love the whipped cream on the pancakes. Great recipe.

  9. yum, I have been a gluten-free diet for a few months now and have wanted to try a pancake recipe, this looks great!

    • My son tested postive for gluten (more positive for gliadin than glutenin) so he needs to get re-tested in the fall. so for now he’s back on a gluten rich diet, but I like to still experiment with gluten free recipes, my sister has to eat gluten free so she appreciates new GF recipes. I noticed you have been posting GF recipes and told her to check your recipes out. Have a great weekend!
