There is nothing better (in my humble opinion) than starting off the weekend with some pancakes for breakfast. I love trying new a different pancake recipes, as you can probably already tell, so I thought I would post my latest creation.
Banana pancakes are delicious, but throw in some vanilla and cinnamon? Heavenly.
Cinnamon, Vanilla and Banana Pancakes
Adapted from Pies and Plots
- 1 and 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar or cane sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 “flax egg” (1 tbsp ground flax+ 3 tbsp warm water)
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 medium-sized bananas, mashed
In a small/medium sized bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon).
In a medium/large sized bowl, mash the bananas until clump-free and smooth. Then, mix in the wet ingredients (milk, coconut oil, flax egg and vanilla) until combined and smooth.
I would suggest warming the milk up slightly (microwave 10-15 seconds) because coconut oil has a tendency to harden when mixed with very cold ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until combined and smooth. Make sure the batter is clump-free!
Pour onto a pan at medium heat. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Once ready, add whatever toppings you prefer!
