Banana Pancakes with Walnut Honey
Who needs syrup? Honey and walnuts make the perfect sweet and crunchy topping for these sensational pancakes.
This easy pancake mix recipe contains more fiber than most store-bought varieties and can serve double-duty for waffles and fruit crepes recipes.
TIME: 30 minutes
1 and 1/3 c Easy Pancake Mix or store-bought, trans-fat free pancake mix
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 c low-fat buttermilk
1/4 c water
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large banana, halved lengthwise and cut thin slices
1/2 c fresh raspberries
1/2 c walnuts, chopped (MUFA)
1/3 c honey
1 Tbsp water
Directions for Banana Pancakes with Walnut Honey
1. To prepare the pancakes: Combine the pancake mix and cinnamon in a large bowl. Combine the buttermilk, water, egg, oil, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Whisk into the pancake mix and stir until smooth. Fold in the banana. Set aside.
2. To prepare the walnut honey: Combine the walnuts, honey, and water in a small bowl.
3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add the pancake batter in scant 1/4 cupfuls and cook, in batches, for about 2 minutes or until the pancakes have puffed and the undersides are lightly browned. Turn the pancakes and cook for about 2 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Serve with the walnut honey and raspberries.
