Banana Cinnamon Pancakes

This is one of those recipes you see on a blog and make within a day... I first found this on For the Love of Cooking. LOVE her blog, she rocks out! If you haven't been over there yet, go go go! But please come back... I want to still see you here too please!

I only made some slight changes as indicated in the recipe below. I know I know... some of you don't like bananas... or are allergic... so to you, I say sub the banana for some pumpkin puree!!! MMMMMM pumpkin pancakes... yes, yes I will be making those soon for sure!!

so you might notice that weird tiny circle pattern all over my pancakes... it's the pan... it's one of the calphalon ones that looks wicked weird, but works like a champ!

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes:
Recipe by For the Love of Cooking.net
Adapted from Cooking Light August 2009

1 cup of whole wheat flour (she used 1/2 wwf & 1/2 APF)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup vanilla fat free yogurt
1 tbsp butter, melted (she used 2)
2 tsp cinnamon (she used 1)
1/8 tsp fresh nutmeg, grated
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 large banana, smashed


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl, stirring well to combine. Combine yogurt butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs and mashed banana in a small bowl, mix thoroughly. Add the flour mixture to the yogurt mixture, stirring until smooth.

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until the tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 2 more minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Top with freshly sliced banana and maple syrup. Enjoy.

Those look delicious... I've made similar ones that have banana slices inside too, and I think they might have oats... I haven't made them in a long time.

Tried these this morning and they were great. I wanted to try it with pumpkin and realized when I was about to start that I had accidentally bought pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree. I was super worried they would be too sweet so I left out the sugar and crossed my fingers it would work out. Other than burning one (overcooking stuff is my number one problem in the kitchen - you should see my eggs), they turned out perfect. Super thick and delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

Lexi- that is so great to hear that they still worked out!! I can't wait to try them with pumpkin :) Great job adapting to buying the wrong thing :D
