banana-walnut pancakes

IMG_7427

Quick post.
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.
(lighting on photos is bad, we have nothing but rain here--can't remember what the sun looks like)

banana-walnut pancakes
adapted from Macheesmo.com
print recipe

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.

  1. No complaints about the rain, as it's bringing down the pine pollen. And no complaints about these pancakes, either!

  9. I did the same thing this weekend! One Brown banana and a favorite pancake recipe, then sprinkled some nuts on top and finished with maple syrup. I think the only difference would be I used almonds instead. Your pancakes look great btw. You are such a good photographer and cook. :)
