Banana Walnut Pancakes

by Kelli H. on September 4, 2011

One of my happiest time of the week is weekend breakfasts.  David and I don’t eat breakfast together during the week so I love it on Saturday or Sunday mornings when we get to share breakfast together. I usually wake up before him so I get started on pancakes. David calls them “cookies” which makes me smile. Once he wakes up, I’m about half way done. He then starts the french press and my morning gets that much happier.

David makes the best cup of french press. He knows exactly how much sugar to put in the cup for me. I couldn’t make it better for myself if I tried. He knows I love lots of foam. My motto is “the more foam the better”. We call our french press “faux lattes“.

This morning we had lots of very ripe banana’s on hand so I decided to make some banana walnut pancakes and I’m sure glad I did. They tasted like personal sized banana walnut bread cakes. YUM!
Banana Walnut Pancakes
2 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 medium)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat griddle or pan over medium-low heat. It’s always best to have a hot griddle ready for you!
2. Beat eggs in medium bowl with whisk until fluffy. Stir in remaining ingredients except walnuts. Stir until smooth.  
3. For each pancake pour about 1/4 cup batter on to hot griddle. Cook until bubbles begin to form. Sprinkle on walnut pieces and then flip and cook other side until golden brown. 
** this recipe makes a ton of pancakes. I recommend cutting the recipe in half if it’s only for 2 people.

I hope it’s going swell and enjoy your day off! 

Any cool plans?

Ug, I wish I had plans other than stupid school work.

By the way, those pancakes look awesome, and now that I think about it, they do sort of look like cookies.

I didn’t really have any cool plans either…I wish I went camping or something fun! I did hit up some great 40% off shopping sales though. 🙂

So yummy! I too love weekend breakfasts. They’re always a special treat. And those pancakes look right up my alley! I’ll have to give them a try.

Tomorrow we don’t have many plans. Just hanging around the house, relaxing. Should be a blast.

Have a great weekend, friend!
