Recipe: Banana Flax Pancakes Gone Wild (Modified slightly from King Arthur Flour)

I was looking for a good recipe for breakfast on the first day of school.  The Girl asked for pancakes.  I have some bananas that need using.  Once again, I was perusing the recipes on King Arthur Flour, and I found Pancakes Gone Wild.  I have some malt powder.  Perfect.
Ok, so they are not exactly gorgeous, but what they lack in appearance, they make up for in yum.

Here's the recipe as I made it:

Banana Flax Pancakes Gone Wild
(Modified slightly from King Arthur Flour)

1 egg
2/3 c skim milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c all purpose
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp malt powder (or 1 Tbsp sugar)
1/4 c ground flax (I used beveri)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 banana, sliced thinly

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.
Combine the dry ingredients.  Stir in the wet ingredients and whisk until just combined.  A few small lumps are ok.
Set the batter aside to rest at room temperature about 15 minutes.
Preheat a griddle to 350 F. Brush with butter.

Place slices of banana on the preheated griddle to cook briefly.
Scoop pancake batter on top of the banana slices.  Cook until bubbles start to form on the surface.

Flip pancakes and cook until browned on the other side, about 1-2 minutes.
Nice and fluffy and full of goodness!

Serve with maple syrup or other desired topping.

Pin It!
