Nutty Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

Nutty Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

A bowl of sticky oatmeal isn’t going to lure your camping partners out of their  warm sleeping bags, but these flapjacks will. Flax, oats, and nuts elevate the  nutrition of camp-friendly, just-add-water pancake mix. Chocolate lovers can add  a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mix.

3/4 cup (180 mL) complete natural pancake mix
1/3 cup (80 mL) quick-cook  rolled oats
1/4 cup (60 mL) flax powder
1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
1/2 cup  (125 mL) walnut pieces or chopped hazelnuts
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups (350  mL) water
1/3 cup (80 mL) pure maple syrup
2 bananas, sliced thinly

At home
In reusable container, toss together pancake mix, oats,  flax, cinnamon, nuts, and salt.

At camp
Lightly grease skillet and place on camp stove. Pour water  into container with pancake batter ingredients, and mix.

Spoon about 1/3 cup (80 mL) batter for each pancake onto heated skillet. Let  pancakes cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Repeat with  remaining batter.
Top with maple syrup and sliced banana.
