This weekend I set out to make some healthy meals. I really wanted to try Christina’s recipe for Gluten Free Almond Coconut Chocolate Chip Pancakes but my local Trader Joes was out of Almond Meal. (I am going to make them next weekend though Christina!) Instead, I followed this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction for Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes and it was a HUGE hit! These pancakes where fluffy and moist. I cant take any credit for the recipe since I really didn’t modify it at all (except for the addition of some blueberries). There wasn’t anything about it that I felt the need to change.
Here is the cast of characters:
I had most of the ingredients already in my pantry. It called for milk, eggs, greek yogurt, a banana, vanilla extract, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and whole wheat flour. I also threw in a few blueberries and they were delicious.
I was nervous about how these pancakes would turn out while they cooked but they tasted fabulous.
I put some bananas on top and paired them with Trader Joe’s chicken breakfast sausage. (Sidenote, my daughter begged me not to buy the sausage since it is a salmon color that is extremely unappetizing in the package. Once I browned them and she ate one, she proclaimed that she loved them and could eat them for every meal. I was glad I took the chance and will definitely make them again.)
