Banana Nut Pancakes

Me: What kind of pancakes do you want this week?

Him: Something with nuts!

Me: What kind of nuts, pecans or walnuts?

Him: What did we just have with the coffee cake?

Me: Pecans.

Him: Then we should have walnuts.

Me: Done

And this is how Banana Nut or what I lovingly call, my favorite pancakes ever, were born.

Andrea’s Banana Nut Pancakes 

  • 1C Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1C Buckwheat Flour
  • 1tsp Baking Soda
  • 1tsp Cinnamon
  • 2TBSP Sugar
  • 1C Walnuts, crushed
  • 1 Large banana
  • 1C Unsweetened Coconut Milk (the kind in the dairy section, not from a can)
  • 1C Water
  • 2tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

Preheat grilled over medium heat.  In a large mixing bowl combine the flours, baking soda, cinnamon, and walnuts and whisk together.  In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the water, coconut milk, vinegar, extract, and banana.  Mash the banana in the liquids as much as possible.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry and stir until everything is combined.  Grease your griddle with a little oil and drop batter by spoonfuls.  The size is up to you!  Cook for about three minutes on the first side or until you start seeing several bubbles pop up in the center.  Flip and cook for another minute to two minutes.  Remove from heat and continue until all the batter has been used.

Serve warm and enjoy!

Most favorite pancakes to date.  These are slightly sweet, completely fluffy and full of flavor.  The banana keeps the pancake moist and the crushed walnuts add a little bit of crunch and texture.

Toppings are your choice, but clearly I used maple syrup for mine.

Leftovers can be frozen and reheated either in a toaster or toaster oven.

Two things are true, I’ve got leftovers and they will be eaten this weekend.

Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!
