Oatmeal Banana Pancakes with Pumpkin Peanut Butter Swirls

Happy Sunday! Try these pancakes to make your morning a little brighter (which, let’s be real, is necessary every day of this long winter). The banana flavor in the pancakes is excellent, especially combined with the swirls of pumpkin peanut butter. If you feel like it, add some chocolate chips to the batter (I always feel like chocolate 😉 ) Healthy, easy, and SO yummy. Dig in.

Directions:

Slice banana lengthwise and microwave for 1 minutes. Put 1/4 cup of the oatmeal in a food processor and blend into flour. Combine oatmeal flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, and baking soda in a bowl. Add egg (or chia egg), milk, microwaved banana, cinnamon, and vanilla to form batter.

To make the filling, combine all ingredients, adding agave or truvia to desired sweetness.

Heat a non stick skillet on medium heat. Add batter to pan and flatten. Add some chocolate chips on top of desired!

At this point, you can decide whether to swirl the pancakes with the filling or just top them. If you want pumpkin-peanut butter swirls, top your pancakes with a spoonful of filling and swirl with a fork. Cook pancakes about 2 minutes on each side (depending on your stove).

Top with remaining filling and toppings! We added Puffed Kamut cereal from Arrowhead Mills (http://www.arrowheadmills.com/product/puffed-kamut%C2%AE-cereal). Try your favorite cereal or granola or slice bananas!
