Grancakes (Granny's Banana Pancakes) (Gluten Free, Sugar Free)

1 very ripe banana
2  eggs (3 if they are small or the banana is large)
1 cup of uncooked oatmeal
1/4 tsp.  aluminum free baking powder
1/2  tsp.(or more to taste) vanilla 
1/4 tsp. salt

Heat heavy skillet or griddle, lightly oiled.
In food processor, grind oatmeal to bits that cannot be identified as oats.

Peel ripe banana, add to food processor. Obliterate until banana cannot be distinguished.

Add remaining ingredients, and process to a smooth batter.

Pour out into desired sized pancakes on hot skillet.

Carefully flip as the bottom side browns lightly.
Finish cooking. (both sides lightly browned and set)
Serve as desired with: butter, syrup, whipped topping, fresh fruit, powdered sugar.

(The oil/ butter on the skillet may be omitted in a non-stick skillet, or substitute a pan spray.)
Nickole will not even TRY a banana. She won't eat oatmeal, even in a cookie. Yet, she begs for these pancakes. They are high in protein & fiber, gluten free, sugar free and basically fat free (before toppings). 
From time to time,  I add spices to the batter. Cinnamon, nutmeg, a hint of ginger.  Try adding pecans or walnuts for a banana bread flavor.
(Makes about 6 medium pancakes)
