These Banana Oatmeal pancakes were born in a moment of mental anxiety. The prior day had gotten away from me and I had failed to get to the store for milk, cereal, bread… some essential breakfast ingredients for a growing family of seven.
Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, flax seed and salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix together egg, milk, water, and oil. Gently stir wet ingredients into dry and combine until JUST incorporated. Add in banana's and stir until combined.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour batter onto a heated griddle set to 300°F. The pancakes are thick so the temperature needs to be a bit lower so they do not burn.
When bubbles form around edges of pancakes, flip. Serve immediately.
