Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes
adapted by How Sweet Eats
1 C whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 C milk
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 tbsp butter, melted
Makes 6 pancakes
Whisk the whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, and unsweetened cocoa powder in a bowl until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas with a potato masher until lumpy with very small banana chunks. Pour the milk, butter, and the vanilla bean paste into the mashed bananas and mix. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients but be careful not to over mix. Heat a pan on the stove over medium heat. Use butter or oil. With a 1/3 measuring cup, pour pancake batter onto the pan into a circular shape. Cook each side for 2-3 or until the top bubbles and the bottom is golden brown. If you want, you can keep the pancakes warm in the oven at 180 degrees so that all the pancakes will remain warm until you are ready to serve and eat.
I decided to cook my pancakes in the shape of Mickey Mouse's head with the help of a cookie cutter.
|Ear went first. Chomp!|
And now, I will smell like pancakes for the rest of the day, which I think works as a pretty good perfume.
**Btw, Marisa I hope you enjoy these pancakes for your breakfast this morning =)
