Tasty Tuesdays: Banana Blueberry Pancakes

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
Last weekend I made these delicious pancakes for breakfast.  I adapted the recipe from one found in the December 2011 issue of Self Magazine.  They are supposed to be a healthier version of pancakes.  They were delicious, but I have to say I sort of missed the sweetness you would have with more traditional pancakes.  next time I make these I might add just a touch of sugar.
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds, crushed walnuts or crushed pecans
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 medium bananas
- 1 cup nonfat or almond milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries
- Vegetable oil cooking spray
Preparation:  In a bowl, combine first 5 ingredients. Mash 1 banana; in another bowl, mix mashed banana with milk, egg and almond extract. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients; stir until smooth. Add berries to batter. Warm a skillet over medium heat; coat with cooking spray. Measure 1⁄3 cup batter; pour onto skillet. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat until batter is gone.

What did you cook this week?

    I don't think I've ever made pancake batter from scratch, lol. I've always just added blueberries/bananas to premade mixes. The pancakes from your recipe look so fluffy and delicious!
