The Fluffiest Banana Pancakes Ever!

So this morning marks a mile stone in my life.

Wanna hear what it is?

Ok, here goes…

I slept in till 9:30am!!!

Seriously guys, I can’t even think of the last time I slept past 8:30 at the ABSOLUTE latest! Even if I stay up to all hours in the night, most of the time 7am rolls around and my eyes shoot straight open…I blame it on work…and the fact that over the years I have become a retiree trapped in a 26 year old body.

Since it’s been for.ev.er since I’ve slept in, I realized that I had forgotten something…

You wake up STARVING!

There were no creative pancake-making juices flowing this morning…all I wanted was to eat…NOW!

So I did what any (somewhat masochistic) person would do…I pulled up Foodgawker on my laptop and started drooling over the “pancake” search.

And well, after about 15 minutes of pinning recipes for pancakes whose ingredients I DIDN’T have, I took another approach…

C’mon, are you really surprised that I have an “Everything Pancakes” board?

First recipe…

How could I have forgotten about this?!

Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes from How Sweet It Is

Whole wheat flour?…check!

Brown sugar?…check!

Bananas?…CHECK!

I followed Jessica’s recipe exactly but halved it since my bananas were a bit on the small side.

And in about 15 minutes, I had five of the fluffiest banana pancakes I’ve ever seen in my life!

Since I don’t normally add sugar to my pancake recipes, I was worried that the maple glaze topping would be a little too much for me, so I decided to mix up a lightly sweetened peanut sauce instead.

All I did was whisk up a bit of peanut flour with some almond milk, added about 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and some of my new vanilla bean paste, and voila!

Check out those vanilla specks!

Ab.so.lute HEAVEN!

What did you have for breakfast today?

Do you normally sleep in on the weekends?
