Show your loved ones you care with some festive heart shaped pancakes this Tuesday. I love these little pancake molds, but you could always just free form or cut them to shape. Yes, these do have some sugar, but they really need it and my natural sweeteners just weren’t doing the trick. Recipe adapted from HERE.
blueberry banana pancakes
- 2 cups whole wheat flour or other whole grain flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2/3 cup soymilk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup fresh or frozen and thawed blueberries, optional
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Measure out the milk and add the vanilla extract to it. Whisk together the dry ingredients and add in milk and vanilla, stirring to combine. The mixture will still be dry. Add in mashed bananas and mix. Add in oil and stir. If the mixture is still very thick, add a spoonful of water as necessary to get a nice consistency. If using blueberries, very gently fold into pancakes.
Heat a skillet or grill on medium heat. Using a 1/4 cup measure, spoon batter into circles on into the greased heart shape molds. Cook until bubbles form on top – about 2-3 minutes. If using the molds, remove mold. Flip and cook for a minute or two more. Repeat with remaining batter, makes about 12. Serve hot with real maple syrup.
These are also great without blueberries or hearts.
