Pancakes

Hey hey! So the past few weekends there’s been some serious breakfast baking bonanzas happening in my house. This Saturday my sister was over and we decided to make pancakes… but not just any pancakes. They weren’t just flour and eggs and baking powder, etc. No, they were much more then that, and I wanted to share our recipe for those so inclined to venture out on their next pancake-making extravaganza! 🙂

Truth be told, we didn’t create this recipe ourselves, we definitely google searched for a recipe. But, once we found one we liked, we added a few extra ingredients that really made them stellar. SO! Here it is, our Fall Spiced Pancakes (sure, that’s what we’ll call it!):

1 cup flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

*1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

*1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1 cup milk

1 egg

2 tablespoons oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

extras: bananas, chocolate chips, honey

*if you don’t have nutmeg and/or ginger, just use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Makes 6 medium sized pancakes.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients and mix. Add the wet into the dry, mix until smooth. With a small ladle or a 1/3 measuring cup, pour batter into a pan on medium-high heat with oil (we used coconut oil). Once small bubbles begin to form, flip the pancake over. Cook until both sides are brown. Serve with any toppings you choose and enjoy!

We wanted to eat banana pancakes, so once the batter was in the pan, we put thin banana slices on to the batter. We did the same with the chocolate chips. Honestly it was the best! Instead of maple syrup, we used honey from Barnabas Farmworks. You could use maple syrup or agave negater, along with other toppings on the pancakes. But if you haven’t tried making pancakes with bananas inside them, go Nike and just do it! 🙂
