Wanted to get these posted for Sunday morning pancake time! In case you needed ideas for breakfast/brunch.
Saw my friend Nick over at Macheesmo.com had just made and posted these. I knew instantly I had to make them.
Who doesn't have brown bananas laying around? Use them in these pancakes.
Took his recipe (which is very good btw) and added extra cinnamon and walnuts. Perfect.
You must try these.

adapted from Macheesmo.com
1 cup browned banana, about two bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 TB brown sugar
1/2 ts salt
1/2 ts baking powder
1/2 ts baking soda
1 ts cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cup whole milk
1/2 ts vanilla extract
3 TB unsalted butter, melted plus some for frying up pancakes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Peel bananas and measure out exactly one cup. Then mash them in a small bowl. Add liquid ingredients (milk, egg, melted butter, vanilla) to bananas.
Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and combine well.
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a small knob of butter.
Once butter is melted, scoop in 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake. Depending on the size of your griddle or skillet you should be able to make more than one at a time.
Cook until pancakes are firm around the edges and have large bubbles forming on top, about 3 minutes. Then flip.
Cook for another 1-2 minutes on the second side.
Serve pancakes immediately with warmed maple syrup and top with the chopped walnuts.
Should make about 6-8 pancakes.
