Making Banana Pancakes



Sunday mornings are my favorite mornings. I like to sleep in, take the dog for a walk to Starbucks, and then go home and make some breakfast. In the winter there is something so comforting about pancakes fresh off the griddle.

Pancakes are super easy to make, and there are about a billion different ways to make them. In the summer I love berries in them, in the fall I make pumpkin pancakes, and in the winter I go with banana. I have two favorite types of banana pancakes one is banana pancakes with honey cinnamon butter and the other is espresso banana pancakes. Both recipes are below. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do!

Banana Pancakes with Cinnamon Honey Butter
1 1/4 Cups All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Mix
1/2 Tsp Xanthan Gum
2 TBS Granulated Sugar
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger
1 Cup Milk
1 Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Ripe Bananas (mashed)

In a large bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle and poor in the milk, egg, vanilla, and mashed banana. Using a rubber spatula mix until just combined. Heat a large skillet or griddle on medium heat and melt about a tablespoon of butter. Spoon pancake batter into the warm skillet. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until just browned. Spoon a teaspoon of the cinnamon honey butter mixture (recipe below) on top of warm pancakes and drizzle with some honey.
