The breakfast project

After the 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer the organizers were ready to trash boxes and boxes of bananas... Really people, trash food? Our friends and us took some of the boxes home... There is no way we would allow perfectly good food to go in the trash.

Once at home we cut and froze some (for future use), drank many banana milkshakes and made today's recipe:

Banana nut pancakes


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of buckwheat flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 smashed bananas
1/4 cup of crushed walnuts
Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste


In a large bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmed and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth. Lastly, add the smashed bananas.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

So, how do you eat a perfectly delicious and healthy banana nut pancake?
You guessed it, with Nutella...
It was so good friends (chocolate + banana, yum!) but not exactly healthy...
Miss V loves to set the table like a restaurant (remember doing that when you were a kid? I do!). She takes our order and brings the food to us. Really cute!
