I'll Make You Banana Pancakes...

Brunch is by far the best meal of the week, and I'm always after delish recipes to whip up on the weekend. I came across these fabulous whole wheat brown sugar banana bread pancakes from the food blog, How Sweet It Is last week and have been dying make them ever since. Not only do they look scrumptious, but they also sound a little healthy with the words whole wheat and banana in the title (but obviously not with all that butter and sugar!). Here's how to make them...

Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes
Makes 12 pancakes

- 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (substitute 1 cup whole wheat & 1 cup all-purpose)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Measure out the milk and add the vanilla extract to it. Whisk together the dry ingredients and add in milk and vanilla, stirring to combine. Then add in mashed bananas and mix, followed by the melted butter. Stir until batter is somewhat smooth.

Cook the pancakes on a griddle and serve hot with butter and syrup, or a vanilla maple glaze made with 1/2 cup maple syrup, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

  1. Awesome blog Keira! Very impressed.

    In the page with the offer titled "I'll make you banana pancakes..." I was looking for a sign-up sheet or some kind of "accept" button. You can pop over here and make those for me any day, but I prefer Sundays. Just give me a heads up. I'll lay the utensils out.
