Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray (www.foodnetwork.com)
Serves: about 12 cakes, 4 servings
• 1 cup old fashioned oats
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 2 ounces, 1/4 cup, chopped walnuts
• 3/4 cup sour cream
• 3/4 cup whole milk
• 2 large eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 really ripe bananas, mashed up
• 3/4 cup raisins
• 1/2 stick butter, 1/4 cup, melted, plus additional for buttering skillet
• Maple syrup or honey, for drizzling

Here's a great tip: if you cannot find really ripe bananas, just nuke them in the
microwave for about 15 seconds and they will become super soft for mashing.
Mix dry ingredients, the first 7, in a bowl. In a another bowl, mix the wet
ingredients, the next 4. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined,
then fold in the mashed up bananas and the raisins. Stir in the melted butter.
Heat a griddle over medium heat and brush with additional melted butter. Cook
pancakes, each about 1/3 cup, until bubbles form on the top, then turn. Cakes will
cook in about 2 minutes on each side. Keep pancakes tented with foil as they come
off the griddle to keep them hot. Serve with drizzled honey or maple syrup over
the top.
