Banana or Not - Oat Pancakes

These pancakes are wonderful! They are tasty, healthy, and very filling. I love them!
YIELD: 3 servings - serving size: 4 pancakes
One serving is 9 Weight Watchers points.
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking or old fashioned oats
1 tablespoon sugar or 3 packets of Truvia
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup nonfat buttermilk or milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1  large egg
Cooking spray
2 bananas (optional) - if using, I do not add sugar.
1. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
2. Combine buttermilk, butter, and egg in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
3. If using banana, mash it up and stir into batter.
4. Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Spoon about 2 1/2 tablespoons batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles; cook until bottoms are lightly browned.
If you do not use sugar one serving will be 8 Weight Watchers Plus Points.
