Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple Fruit
For maple fruit, stir together bananas, blueberries, the 1/4 cup syrup, the lemon juice, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.Advertisement
Stir together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Use a fork to combine buttermilk, egg, oil, 1 tablespoon syrup, and the vanilla in a medium bowl. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Let stand for 10 minutes to soften oats.
For each pancake, spoon 2 slightly rounded tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet; spread to a 3- to 4-inch circle. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown. Turn over when edges are slightly dry and bottoms are browned. Serve warm topped with maple fruit.
Tip: To make 1 cup sour milk, place 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough fat-free milk to make 1 cup total liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.
