Banana Oat Pancakes

I think you all know by now how much I love pancakes.  I'm always thinking of ways to make them healthier.  I decided to add oat bran, Greek yogurt and a banana this morning and the outcome was delicious!  I didn't have any maple or agave syrup, so I topped mine with a schmear of peanut butter and some strawberries.  They were so good and I recommend you make them soon!

Banana Oat Pancakes

1 ripe banana
1 cup buttermilk (I put a teaspoon of white vinegar in a one cup measure and filled up to a cup with skim milk and let sit for about 20 minutes at room temperature)
1/3 cup oat bran
2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon AP flour
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1-2 teaspoons canola, or any light vegetable oil
1 - 2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Nonstick spray

Preheat skillet over medium heat.

Mash banana in a bowl large enough to combine all ingredients.  Add buttermilk through salt and whisk together.  Let sit for a couple of minutes.  Skillet is ready when you splash a bit of water on it and the water dances around.  Spray with nonstick spray.

Using 1/3 cup measure, pour batter onto skillet.  Cook until bubbles appear.  They are ready to flip at this point.  Continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown.  Serve with syrup and or fresh berries.
