Almond & Banana Pancakes!

Breakfast for dinner, yay! Who wants some Almond & Banana Pancakes?

I refuse to make pancakes out of the box. Most boxes contain trans fats, and homemade ones are so much better. Here’s my recipe:

Almond & Banana Pancakes


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped


Whisk first 6 ingredients together in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture just until blended. Never overmix pancake batter! Fold in bananas.
Heat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cupfuls in skillet. Cook pancakes on one side until bottom is golden-brown and the top side begins to bubble (about 2 minutes). Turn and cook another 2 minutes. ENJOY!

We also made bacon–Brandon found the healthiest bacon I’ve ever seen. Haha. By that I mean, lower calorie, lower fat, and lower sodium than regular bacon. It was Maverick Ranch’s Nautral Applewood Smoked Bacon! So good!

First one in the pan–always a fail for me:

I ended up slicing the bananas and placing them in the batter:
