Banana Bread Pancakes!!!

Ok...Wow. I found this recipe a while ago and yesterday while looking at rotten banana's on my counter not wanting to throw them away because that would be wasteful I remembered! I always love to try new things so it was perfect!

I did it I followed the recipe from how sweet it is right on down to the maple glaze. Delish. However I could have done without because the pancakes were so yummy they would have been tasty with just some sugar...or PEANUT BUTTER!!! Yum. They were just a fun tasty new idea and easier (and faster) that baking banana bread but equally as delicious! I must say try them, try them, try them! Thank you to other people who come up with fantastic recipes so I can try them and feel like an amazingly fancy cook!

Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes
makes 12 pancakes
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Measure out the milk and add the vanilla extract to it. Whisk together the dry ingredients and add in milk and vanilla, stirring to combine. The mixture will still be dry. Add in mashed bananas and mix. Add in melted butter and stir until batter is somewhat smooth.
Heat a skillet or grilled on medium heat. Using a 1/3 cup measure, spoon batter into rounds and cook until bubbles form on top – about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for a minute or two more. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot with butter and syrup, or the vanilla maple glaze.
Note: if you don’t have/can’t find whole wheat pastry flour, use 1 cup of regular whole wheat and 1 cup of all purpose. Or 2 cups of all purpose.

Vanilla Maple Glaze
1/2 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth. Pour over pancakes.
