Easy Banana Pancakes

Easy Banana Pancakes by freshfromthe.com

I woke up last weekend wanting to make some kind of breakfast, but soon realized my idea of breakfast burritos wasn't going to work when all of my eggs had gone bad and I didn't want to go to the store. I mean, I really hate grocery shopping. I don't know why, but I do.

Anyway! I ended up searching around and discovered that I could make some pancakes pretty easily without any eggs. Yay for the versatile banana! Technically the recipe I found was vegan and Gluten-Free, but I adapted it a bit back to gluten-full and used some regular milk. Of course, you can totally do her vegan variety, I just can't attest to what they're like.

But the ones I made? They're pretty dang delicious, and pretty dang easy too. Not that pancakes should be hard, but you know what I mean. What I enjoy most about these is that they don't even really need syrup, though you can always dribble some on if you want, I won't stop you. I used some, too, but soon realized it wasn't super necessary. They're sweet from the banana and honey, but not too sweet. Just right.

Dense banana pancakes that can easily be made vegan – no eggs needed!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk or soy milk
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large mashed banana
Instructions:
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, baking powder, salt).
  2. Mix wet ingredients together in a separate medium bowl (milk, honey, vanilla, oil). Add in the mashed bananas and mix well.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
  4. Place 1/4 cup batter on a lightly greased hot pan. The batter is pretty thick, so I spread it a little with my spatula to make a bigger, more even, pancake. Cook for about 1 minute per side.
