I could eat breakfast items for every meal every day. There is just something so sweet, salty and savory with breakfast that makes me crave it. You will see, at least once a week ,on our dinner table, Bacon and eggs. However, last Tuesday,in honor of Pancake Tuesday, I decided to fancify our breakfast dinner.
Low and behold…Whole Wheat pancakes with Bananas and Pecans. And to help make it a little better for us…I added a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder to the mix. Adds a punch of protein into a mostly carb filled meal! We also baked our bacon on a boiler pan to make it extra crispy. So fancy!
Whole Wheat Pancakes with Bananas & Pecans
1 ½ Cups Milk
2 Tbsp White Vinegar
½ Cup All-Purpose Flour
½ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tbsp White Sugar
1 Tsp baking powder
½ Tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 Tbsp Butter, Melted
1 Banana Mashed
Combine the Milk and Vinegar and set aside for 5 minutes. This will allow the milk to sour and simulate buttermilk.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk your egg and cooled melted butter into the milk mixture. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients add mashed banana and whisk until combined and lumps are gone. Don’t over mix!
Pour ¼ Cup full of batter mixture onto your griddle (medium heat) and cook until bubbles pop on the surface. Flip and cook until browned.
Serve with warmed maple syrup, sliced bananas and pecans and bacon!
