Hidden Avocados

I am not an avocado fan, but I cannot handle seeing one go bad on our counter. (They are sometimes $2 a piece!!) Whenever there is an avocado on the verge of spoiling, I try to figure out something to do with them.

Enter my (strange yet tasty) pancake combination. It sounds weird, but they taste good. As an added bonus, those avocados give your breakfast a creamy protein boost.

Be warned, this recipe makes a lot. They are good enough to freeze for later so you can have avocado pancakes every morning!

Bananacado Pancakes (2)
Bananacado Pancakes
Makes about 25
1 cup oat flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 ½ Hass avocados
3 ripe bananas
1 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 tbsp melted butter
Mix together the first seven dry ingredients. In a blender, combine the remaining ingredients. Blend until creamy. Whisk together the wet and dry ingredients. Preheat a nonstick pancake pan over medium heat. Drop about 3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan at a time. Spread the lumps out a bit with the back of a rubber spatula. Cook each side of the pancakes for a couple of minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm.
