Banana Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

I was in the mood for some healthy banana nut pancakes for breakfast this morning.  I added whole wheat flour to hot oat bran cereal with fresh bananas and walnuts.  I am pleased with the outcome.  This recipe yielded approximately 14 pancakes or about  6 servings.  There are about 365 calories in  one serving.  I served them with sugar free pancake syrup and fresh sliced bananas.

Banana Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

2 cups lowfat milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup mashed bananas (or about 2 bananas)
1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon Natural Applesauce
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup Hot Oat Bran Cereal (I used Bob's Red Mill Organic)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mix lowfat milk, eggs, sour cream, mashed bananas, vegetable oil, and applesauce in a small bowl until blended.

In a separate large bowl mix together whole wheat flour, hot oat bran cereal, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

Add milk and egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir until combined and add walnuts.

Preheat a griddle on low medium heat.  Add non stick cooking spray and a light coating of oil to the griddle.  Add small spoonfuls of batter.  Flip pancakes when small bubbles appear.

Repeat until pancakes have cooked through on both sides.

Serve immediately with sugar free or light syrup and fresh bananas.

This recipe yields 6 servings at about 365 calories.
