Banana Oat Pancakes with Red Pepper Jelly Syrup

Well, I guess the snow isn’t as bad as it could have been – maybe we got 5 inches!  But the show is so WET!

Unfortunately, the weather is preventing me from going to visit Tony today. 😦   We’ve talked a couple times already this morning and his floor is really quiet so hopefully he’ll get some rest today!

I recently got my next issue of Clean Eating and decided to make Stephanie Izard’s Banana Oatmeal Pancakes.  I decided to kick it up a notch and made a red pepper jelly syrup.  I melted 1/4 cup sugar free syrup with1 tablespoon red pepper jelly – just a hint of spice but went well with the sweet!

the batter was really light and fluffy!

Banana Oat Pancakes with Red Pepper Jelly Syrup

  • 3 medium bananas
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (I am out, so I didn’t use it)
  • 1 cup rolled oats, ground to a course flour in a food processor
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats (I used Quaker quick oats for both)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 egg whites, whipped to soft peaks

I did everything in the processor.  I ground the oats first, then put in a separate bowl.  I added the oats, flour, salt and baking powder and mixed well.  I rinsed that out and added the 2 egg whites to the processor and left it on until soft peaks, and put in a small bowl.   Next went the bananas, milk and extract and mixed well.   Add the banana mixture to the oat mixture and mix well.  Fold in the egg whites last. 

Each pancake comes in at 100 calories, 1 gram of fat, 20.5 carbs, 2.5 fiber, and 5.5 protein!

Off to do some cleaning, shoveling and making my menu for the week.  See you later!

  1. amazing snow and pancakes!!! I was craving pancakes this morning but got too lazy to make them. I wish I live close to you 🙂

  2. ooh i think i would love that spicy-sweet combo!

    your snow looks beautiful — you’re lucky to live in a place where it’s still pretty even after it lands on the ground. if i end up having to deal with any more gray slush around here, i might actually have a breakdown.

    sorry you can’t visit tony today — i hope he does get some rest!

  5. I’m so not ok with this snow… ugh.
    Glad Tony sounds like hes doing well!

  6. Wow! That syrup sounds amazing!

  7. Sadly, I prefer my soft cold pieces of waffle, with luke warm oat meal to your red pepper breakfeast.

    Thank goodness for Hannah’s trail mix and snacks.It keeps from the cold grip of starvation.

    Thanks again for all of your kind thoughts.

  8. I SERIOUSLY hope that doesn’t continue up this way! Where’s spring?!

  9. Oh wow, so much snow!!!

  10. Wow, look at all that snow, but on the bright side, the pictures are breathtaking! I love red pepper jelly, this looks wonderful!

  11. That’s an interesting idea, using the red pepper jelly to top your pancakes. I love red pepper jelly, and would have never thought to do that.

  12. the sauce is SO creative!

  13. Bleck – it was a wet, soggy snow.

  14. Look at all that snow! So glad you made it home last night before it really started, although I’m sorry it prevented you from seeing Tony.
