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!
