Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes  
Old Fashion Oats:          1 cup
AP Flour:                       1 cup
Brown Sugar:                 1/2 cup
Baking Powder:             2 tsp 
Baking Soda:                  1/2 tsp
Cinnamon:                    1 tsp
Nutmeg:                           1/4 tsp
Sour Cream:                  3/4 c
Milk:                              3/4 c
Eggs, large:                    2
Vanilla Extract:              1 tsp
Butter, unsalted, melted: 2 oz 
Bananas, chopped          2 ea 

Pecans, chopped
Raisins, dark 
Butter, unsalted               as needed for cooking

1.  Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir with a whisk until combined well.

2.  Add the sour cream, milk & eggs and stir in with whisk.

3.  Fold in bananas and then stir in melted butter.  Batter will be thicker than a regular pancake batter. 

4.  Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.  Melt 1/2 tsp of butter and scoop out 1/2 cup of the batter and pour into the pan.  Do not crowd the pan, cook 1-2 cakes at a time.  Sprinkle pecans and raisins onto the cakes and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes before flipping.  Cakes should have a nice light golden brown color.  Carefully flip cakes over and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the center is no longer runny.  Repeat this process until all the batter is finished.  

5.  Serve with your favorite syrup and a little butter.
