Oatmeal Banana Pancakes without Eggs

The passing week had two bank holidays one being on Tuesday for Muharram and the other on Thursday for Gurunanak Jayanti. Normally I wouldn't even notice these holidays because 

  1. These are "Bank Holidays" so usually only banks have them, I don't work in a bank and nowadays internet banking works fine which excludes the need to visit one.
  2. It is an "Optional Holiday" for the "Corporate sector" which means if you actually belong to these religions celebrating them then only you get these holiday not for a Maharashtrian like me.
So, what made me suddenly appreciate these two holidays on the blog ??

Schools are also closed on bank holidays in India. Thus kids in my society were out loose on the playgrounds for the entire day with their voices tuned to highest audibles their throat could allow. The two holidays were on two working days, i.e. Tuesday & Thursday, hence the kids were thrilled to highest peak. Infact I overheard one of the kiddo say that, "Thank God we had a off today I had not finished my project work for Science class" 

Anyways, kids have a various ways to amuse the cynical adult in us, They also have an amazing power to make a better human out of us we just need to be patient & open to adaptation.

Today is Children's Day so thought of sharing this Oatmeal Pancake without eggs which has bananas and raisins with pancake syrup. An easy weasy recipe, simple ingredients & a quick healthy fix for kids once they return from the playground.

  • Process the oats in the blender into a fine powder, 
  • Then add rest of the ingredients except the baking soda and blend into puree paste.
  • Spoon it out into a bowl and fold the baking powder into the mixture. Let it stand for 5 mins. Till then heat a pan which has a lid. 
  • Drizzle some oil or butter on the pan. Then ladle out a pancake or small dosa on the heated pan. You can now arrange the resins on the pancake. Cover it up for 1 min.
