Banana Pancakes

Do you remember as a kid, there was something special about weekend breakfasts? With all the time in the world and no rushing off to school or work. For our family, Saturday mornings were always a quiet home affair and with all the time in the world, of course the best thing to do with all that time was make pancakes.

It’s only natural that this tradition has been passed down to my kids. Most weekends they ask for pancakes and I’m delighted to have come up with a healthy pancake recipes. The best part is it’s so easy to whip up, even the kids can do them on their own now (well most of it).
