100th post and a yummy recipe :o)

This is my 100th post :o) I didn't realize I post that often. ;o)

Yesterday, at Kroger, the produce dept had bags of ripe bananas priced to sell. We picked up a 5 lb bag for $1.50, knowing that we'd use them for banana nut bread and smoothies. Today, we tried a new recipe for Banana Nut Pancakes. Delicious! Here's the "recipe":

Banana Nut Pancakes

2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup flour (we used 1/3 cup white, 1/3 cup whole wheat and 1/3 cup of oat/ flax/ wheat germ mix)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
hand full of chopped walnuts

Mash bananas and add egg and milk. Mix well. Combine dry ingredients then add to wet stirring until just mixed. Add walnuts and stir. Drop by 1/4 cup onto prepared griddle/ pan and cook as you would cook pancakes.

We added butter and honey and they tasted exactly like banana nut bread (without the sweet topping, they are a little bland as there is no added sugar in them). We put the leftovers in the freezer and will definitely make these again - I think they may become a regular addition to our breakfast rotation.

Oh, Yum! I've been making pancakes from scratch for the last few months and am always on the lookout for ways to use up old bananas! I think we'll try these tomorrow! thanks for sharing the recipe!
