Banana Pancakes

Note: These were delicious!  I have never had banana pancakes before and it was like having banana bread in the form of a pancake.  Delish!  This recipe made about 10 large pancakes (I used my ice cream scoop to portion out the batter), so double it if you need to.

Ingredients
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup milk
1 cups flour*
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 eggs
¼ tsp salt

*If your bananas were frozen, add another 1/2 cup of flour to account for the extra liquid that usually results from defrosting.

Directions

1)  Beat together wet ingredients (mashed bananas, milk, and eggs) and add the dry ingredients.  Mix until combined.

2) Heat your pan or skillet to medium heat (about 350 if you have an electric griddle) and cook as usual.  I portion the batter with an ice cream scoop.  After the batter has been on the skillet for about 15-30 seconds, this is the time to add in some chocolate chips, blueberries or whatever you like!
3)These do take a little longer than regular pancake batter because of the thickness.  Try about 5 minutes on each side to start.

4) Serve with syrup, jam, apple butter, butter or your favorite toppings. Peanut butter would be good, too!  Yum!
