Oatmeal-Banana Pancakes

2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs -- beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 ripe banana -- mashed with a fork

In bowl, pour milk over rolled oats; let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.

In another bowl, stir together flours, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Beat eggs, oil, and bananal together; add to dry ingredients along with milk/oats mixture, stirring just until mixed (if batter is too thick, add a little more milk).

Heat a large greased skillet over medium to med-high heat or a griddle to 350ºF.

Pour in about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake and cook for about 3 minutes or until bubbles on top break but do not fill in, and bottoms are golden and set.

Turn over and cook for about 30-60 seconds longer, or until nicely set and golden brown.

Hold pancakes in a 200ºF oven until ready to serve.
