My little monkey Ashlyn loves her bananas, but if we buy more than 4 guaranteed there will be a few that go mushy before we get to them. For a change of pace, I decided to make banana pancakes on the weekend for the first time using this recipe with a few little tweeks. Ashlyn loved helping to crack the eggs and mash the bananas; she’s becoming quite the little helper in the kitchen.
Add some syrup and turkey bacon and you’ve got Ashlyn’s favourite breakfast! This makes about 6 pancakes so make sure to double it if you’re feeding a crowd (or are just really hungry).
- Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
- Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
