Pumpkin Banana Pancakes

As most of you know, I don’t measure a thing.. but here are my guestimates, in case you want to attempt to reconstruct this delicious breakfast!

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie)
  • 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp Agave
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • dash milk (to bring to correct consistency)
  • heaps of cinnamon
  • 1 small super ripe banana, mashed

My batter looked like this…

Heat skillet to medium, and coat with nonstick spray.  These pancakes are pretty thick, so they’ll take a bit to cook through.  Make sure not to make them too big, because they’re notoriously hard to flip if they’re large.

^^ this one I made without adding the banana, just to see the color and consistency, for future knowledge.

The top pancake now has the banana in it!  I found it harder to flip when the banana was added, since the batter was heavier.

Note that I use “small” plates.  This is not a traditional 10” plate.  It’s a side-dish plate.

I always like my pancakes with an egg, because I prefer yoke as the “syrup.”  Weird, right? 

Anyhow.  This could easily feed two, or one very-hungry-Brie.

Which might have been a mistake, because I just recalled that I’m going out to lunch at 1 with some friends in Georgetown… ooops.

Banana Pancakes

Cue Jack Johnson song…



Who doesn’t love banana pancakes, right?

I’m currently trying to clean out my pantry items (since I move away in 2 weeks), and thus ‘garbage’ pancakes are born.  Okay, not really garbage, but an interesting assortment!


This could easily serve two people, or one very hungry individual.

  • 1 banana, ripe
  • 1/3c bisquick or whole wheat flour
  • big dash of baking soda
  • big dash of cinnamon
  • 1/4c dry oats
  • 1/2c egg whites
  • dash water

Smash your ‘naner, then add wet and dry ingredients, mixing evenly.  It’ll be lumpy because of the banana, but that’s the best part!


Cook on a sprayed griddle on medium.  This made three mammoth pancakes.  I topped with spray butter and a bit of honey… and coffee on the side!

Happy Sunday!
