Banana Oat Bran Pancakes

Heart-shaped pancakes are something of a Valentine’s tradition in the FoodieTots’ home. I’ve been experimenting with a banana bran batter that provides a fiber boost while staying light and fluffy. The toddler loves to help make pancakes and as you can see, was quite pleased with this recipe. Best served with fresh fruit and topped with a little pure maple syrup, of course. Happy Valentine’s Day to you & your family!

    Looks good! For Oat bran, are you just blending up oats into a flour?

    @ SHF – I buy oat bran at my organic grocer. It’s courser than oat flour would be.
