I started to do a meal plan over the weekend and was looking through sale flyers, but realized I still had plenty of food in my fridge/freezer and pantry that I didn’t need to buy anything but fresh fruit.
I spent $6.68 cents on groceries this week. I bought bananas for Hannah but they were already too ripe for her to eat – she can’t eat them if there is the tiniest bit of brown on them. Even though the stems were green, nope – she wasn’t going to eat them.
So expect a lot of banana recipes!
These pancakes are dense, not fluffy like buttermilk pancakes, but delicious. After I made them and found that I got 9 pancakes out of the recipe, I put the recipe into the recipe builder, and each one is 1 point each no matter how many you eat.
Believe me – two are plenty!
I used my stick blender to mix up the wet ingredients. Even though these aren’t fluffy pancakes, I still let the baking powder do its magic and let the batter sit 15 minutes before making the pancakes. I used 1/3 cup measuring cup for each pancake.
Banana Oat Pancakes
These are not your grandmas fluffy pancakes, but they are delicious and filling!

These are dense and thick pancakes, so they take a bit longer to cook. On #teampurple and #teamblue each pancake is 1 point, on #teamgreen they are 3 points each.
I served mine with greek yogurt and fruit in the middle. I ate breakfast at 9:30 yesterday and didn’t eat lunch until after 3 – super filling!
Let me know if you make them. Happy Tuesday friends, make it a great day!
