Banana Nut Pancakes

You give me a banana, I will turn it into something delicious. I’ll want to break it up and create a delicious smoothie or mash it up and make some pancakes…

Banana Nut Pancakes

If you love banana bread, banana muffins, or just plain bananas you will love these pancakes. This recipe is super quick and easy to make and you’ll get all the flavors of banana nut bread. Bananas are a great source of potassium which helps maintain normal blood pressure and good bone health. That’s always good, right? 

To help give these pancakes a little more staying power, I use Whole White Wheat Flour.  This flour is a whole grain, so you get all the benefits of the bran, germ, and endosperm. For the nut in these Banana Nut Pancakes, I use walnuts. These are the only nut that provides omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Omega 3 fatty acids help reduce heart disease and can lower cholesterol.

I see I’m not the best bag opener, good thing it is resealable. Hello, super ripe bananas! These little guys were begging to be turned into something delicious :D

  2. […] Banana Nut Bread is a family favorite in our house. Everyone gets so excited when they smell or see that I made it. I do have to admit that I made it several times since moving up to 7300 ft and each time it was a disappointment. It was the same recipe that I have been making for about 20 years, but high altitude and baking can be tricky. At this altitude leaveners tend to work faster than your bread has time to “set” and you end up with a deflated or fallen product. It can be really frustrating! Sometimes you have to adjust baking times, temperatures, liquids, or the amount of eggs, sugar, or flour used in a recipe. Thankfully, most of my recipes turn work without any major changes. Before I figured it out the adjustments, I would make these Banana Nut Pancakes. […]
