Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

It’s 5  days after Christmas.

We are still eating leftovers. 

I feel a little guitly.

Not guilty enough to resume large family dinners with 5 and 6 courses.  But guilty still the same.

So I made breakfast this morning.

Pan roasted potatoes.
Leftover Holiday Ham.
and. . . .

Oatmeal Pancakes.
Made with Oatmeal.
And Brown Sugar.

We even threw in some bananas because my mother is here and she has a real problem with bananas at breakfast time.

Banana Cream of Wheat.
Bananas in our Cereal.
Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas.
Flaming Bananas.
Bananas over our ice cream.
Bananas mashed in our milk.

That lady is really bananas. (A little shout out to my pun-tastic friend, Jules.)

She had thrown them into the pancakes before I could say Flapjack.

Lucky us.
