Banana Pancakes

My sister, R, awoke this morning with the words "french toast" coming out of her mouth. And then she went back to sleep. I didn't think much of it until I heard her later say, "pancakes...waffles". I thought, this girl definitely has breakfast on the brain. When she was fully awake, I asked her where on earth it came from. All she could say was, I don't know. But then, on a "let's spoil R this morning and treat her to something nice and nourishing" whim, I offered to satisfy her craving by making pancakes for breakfast-- or rather brunch, as it was heading toward lunchtime already. We had some ripening bananas lying around so I just figured I'd make banana pancakes. Sometimes, cooking a nice, wholesome for someone you love is a great way to show them your love and to help kickstart their day right. They were quite tasty I must say and simple to whip together. This recipe is adapted from some site on the internet. Run a google search... if this one doesn't suit you, there are plenty of recipes to be had. Serve with real maple syrup, no imitations, or enjoy like I do.. plain!

Banana Pancakes

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
small squirt vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 tsbp vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas

Place the bananas in a large bowl,

and mash well.
Add the milk, egg, oil and vanilla,
and stir well to combine.

Add the dry ingredients,
and combine thoroughly, without overmixing.

Cook as you would regular pancakes,

and enjoy breakfast!
