Whole Grain Banana Pancakes

Over the weekend, Zoey and I found ourselves with a banana on the edge of being over-ripe. This is a reason to celebrate at our house because it means that we are going to bake something yummy! I happened to be reading Greenlite Bites, and I came across Roni's recipe for Whole Grain Banana Pancakes and decided to give them a try.

Zoey and I made some basic substitutions, the first being creating an egg out of flaxseed. I mixed 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water in my mini food processor. As long as I had the food processor out, I added the banana and 1/2 cup of light soymilk instead of regular milk:

I added in the dry ingredients. I knew things were looking good when I saw how great the batter looked.

I cooked the pancakes over medium heat for a couple minutes on each side:

This recipe made 9 pancakes this size. They were delicious plain or with a little maple syrup. To be fair, these were not quite as exciting as my recent pumpkin pancakes or pear-walnut pancakes but they were still delicious!

I have yet to try making vegan pancakes (and American style pancakes too). I should make some at the weekend and put that right :o)
And I love the shot of Zoey with the banana (my two seem to be repelled by bananas~they screw their noses up at the smell and start to reverse!)

I love baking anything with bananas, it makes the whole house smell delicious! You are a master pancake maker! And Zoey is a master banana sniffer!

Yum! My favorite thing to do with old nanners is make Banana Nut Waffles from Veganomicon. I have yet to try vegan pancakes, but these sound like a great candidate for a first crack.

(sorry - looks like he's about to launch himself out the window - much better to become a pancake instead).
