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.

Fried Peanut Butter and Jam French Toast

French Fried Peanut Butter and Jam French Toast

We took the childhood classic, a PB&J sandwich, and whipped up a gourmet version. Our French Fried Peanut Butter and Jam French Toast is going to blow your mind.

The concept for stuffed French toast is simple:  Make a sandwich with a yummy filling and dip the sandwich in an egg mixture or egg rich batter and cook as you would for other French toasts.  The filling needs to be sticky enough that the two slices of bread stick together.  Other than that, let your imagination soar.
