My whole family loved these pancakes and they were easy to make. I tried them with and with bananas. The batter on its own is good but I preferred the pancakes with bananas. I served them with butter and real maple syrup. Delicious!
5 Spot Banana Pancakes
Notes: If desired, sprinkle about 1 teaspoon chopped pecans on each pancake after adding banana slices. Serve pancakes with butter and warm maple syrup or a dusting of cinnamon-sugar.
