Banana Nut Pancakes

Banana Nut Pancakes

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and got to spend some time with your family and friends. I know I spent my time at home sleeping in and enjoying this fresh spring time weather. I’ve been taking some time off from Insanity to give my body a rest, but I did get my free tshirt in the mail! I am literally so proud of myself for earning this shirt and thought I would show it off 🙂

Back to the Ernharth household, we celebrated our MDW with a Pancake Party on Saturday morning. English muffins, bacon, and plenty of pancakes were on the menu. We made some yummy chocolate chip pancakes and then I got this brilliant idea to recreate something you would order at iHop. Luckily for us, we got to stay in our pajamas 🙂 So if you all need a good recipe for a weekend breakfast or brunch or if you like breakfast for dinner as much as I do, these Banana Nut Pancakes are for you!

Ingredients (per 2 pancakes)

Pancake: 2

Banana: 1

Walnuts: 1/4 cup

Butter: 1 tablespoon

Syrup: 1/4 cup

First heat a saucepan to low. This will be the saucepan you use to make your syrup topping for your pancakes. You can have your pancakes already made and staying warm while you make your syrup, make them at the same time, or the syrup first and let it stay warm while you make your pancakes. I did them at the same time, but you can always do them one at a time as well. I’ll just be showing how to make the syrup topping, so feel free to make your pancakes whatever way you feel most comfortable.

After your saucepan has heated up, add your butter and let it melt first. Then add your walnuts to the melted butter to let them brown a little bit.

Then add to your saucepan your sliced bananas and syrup. Keep your syrup topping in the saucepan so it stays warm while you finish making your pancakes.

When you’re ready to eat, pour your banana nut syrup topping in between your two pancakes and then pour the rest on the top. No need to butter your pancakes since we already added this in the syrup topping. Grab a fork and a knife and get to eating. Add any extra syrup if you feel the need and hey, if you’re a three or four pancake kind of person, just make a little extra syrup topping to make a giant stack of Banana Nut Pancakes!

The best part about these pancakes is they taste like you went out for breakfast, but you can relax in the comfort of your own home. They weren’t as heavy as the chocolate chip pancakes and hey you’re getting a fruit in there in the beginning of your day! I hope you guys get a chance to try these out next time you don’t feel like putting on real clothes and heading out for breakfast. Do you guys have any favorite breakfast recipes that you like to try when you have more time on the weekends? Please share below!
