Banana-Oatmeal Hot Cakes with Spiced Maple Syrup

Banana-Oatmeal Hot Cakes with Spiced Maple Syrup

1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 whole cinnamon stick
3 whole cloves
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup yogurt
1 large ripe banana, mashed
1 egg, lightly beaten

In a small saucepan, add in the maple syrup, cinnamon stick and cloves. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove and let sit for 15 minutes. Pick out the cinnamon stick and cloves - keep warm.

In a large glass bowl, mix together the oats and water. Microwave on high for about 3 minutes, or until the oats are tender. Stir in the brown sugar and canola oil. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon.

Into the cooked oats, stir in the milk, yogurt and banana. Beat in the egg. Add the flour mixture to the oat mixture and stir just until combined.

Heat a griddle over medium heat. Drop about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto the griddle. Cook until the edges are lightly browned and the top begins to bubble. Turn and cook until the the pancake is cooked through. Repeat with any remaining batter. Serve with warm syrup.
