Not sure if this recipe is really blog-worthy, but it wasn’t until a snow day a few years ago that my mom made these delicious pancakes. They are so easy to make! I have fallen in love with them ever since and whenever I make pancakes, I get banana nut and Blair gets chocolate chip.
The reason why I don’t know if I should be posting it is because I cheat and use Bisquick. I have all intentions to make pancakes from scratch in the future to really see if there is much of a difference. (Is there readers, any insight on this topic?) I also have heard that subbing in buttermilk makes pancakes nice and fluffy, but I have yet to try that as well. Oh the possibilities for the future!
Banana Nut Pancakes
Recipe by Betsy Blaston
What you’ll need:
Your favorite pancake mix (from a box or from scratch)
handful of your favorite chopped nuts, finely chopped (I use walnuts)
What you’ll do:
In a separate small bowl, mash the banana. Prepare the pancake mix according to the package directions. Once it is mixed, add in the mashed banana and the chopped nuts, mix well. Lightly butter the griddle. Gently ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle. When bubbles begin to set around the edges of the pancake and the griddle-side of the cake is golden, gently flip the pancakes. Continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancake is set.
