Sometimes there are just those days when you wake up, take one look outside and the Banana Pancakes song by Jack Johnson starts playing in your head. Today was one of those days for me. I mean, come one, a song about pancakes on a rainy day? Perfection.
There’s something about a damp spring day that makes me want to put on my wool socks, heat up the griddle and cook in my pjs. Unfortunately for my waistline, damp spring days are an everyday occurrence. Beach season? Pfft! I’d rather eat my pancakes.
This recipe made 10 scrumptious cakes.
Blueberry Banana Pancakes
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 3/4 cups milk
1 large, ripe banana, chopped
1 small carton of fresh blueberries
Warm up your griddle, or frying pan, on medium heat, and spray with coconut oil cooking spray.
Mix and sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cinnamon into a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl whisk together your melted butter, 2 eggs and milk.
Whisk the wet into the dry then add the fresh fruit.
Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, scoop your batter onto the griddle/frying pan. Flip the pancakes when the tops are blanketed with small bubbles and cook until done.
Top with100% maple syrup or jam and enjoy with a huge cup of coffee.
