Banana Pancakes from a Mix

Banana Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my favorite weekend recipes. After a morning of sleeping in and relaxing, they’re the perfect breakfasts to scoop on to the griddle while I spend time with my family. They fill you up, and there are so many creative pancake recipes to try.

Lately—maybe once a week—I’ve been eating banana pancakes for breakfast, whole grain banana pancakes.  I’m simply mashing one small banana and mixing it with 3/4 cup of “Ancient Grain” pancake mix.  And loving it.  I like those ancient grain pancakes anyway.  They’re nutty and, with amaranth, quinoa, and teff, they have substance.  I thought maybe they would tend to fall apart with all those grains and banana too.  It seems that the banana actually helps hold them together.  I just mash the banana with a fork in a bowl and then add the mix and water.

Because I mash the banana with a fork, there are little clumps of banana in mix but with all the whole grains, it’s hardly noticeable.  If I were adding bananas to say, a buttermilk pancake mix, I might puree the bananas and then mix them.

Banana Pie Pancakes

pastry-fillings

Mashed bananas are not the only way to go; slice them instead.  To make Banana Pie Pancakes, cook the  pancakes, put a layer of Bavarian cream between the layers of pancakes and sliced bananas on the Bavarian cream.  Drizzle with some cream or caramel syrup.

So, if you’re looking for a fun twist to put on your pancake recipe, bananas are the way to go! You can do so much with them, and you get to sneak in a yummy fruit too.
