Wholegrain berry pancakes with Bananas Foster toping

I love brunch and so I try new recipes each Saturday (or sometimes go back to old standards). Last Saturday, I tried out a new recipe on my husband, one that appears successful!

Ingredients for the pancakes

  • 1/3 c oat flour
  • 1/3 c. cornmeal
  • 1/3 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/3 c water
  • 1 handful blueberries
  • 1 handful frozen cranberries
  • 1 T almond extract
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg
  • 1 dash allspice

Method for the pancakes

Beat the egg. Add the dry ingredients into it. Add water and stir/whisk until smooth (add more or less water depending on how thick you want the pancakes). Add in the extracts, flavorings, and then the berries. let sit for a few minutes while you heat a griddle with a little olive oil rubbed on. Pour pancakes, turning when you see bubbles on the topisde. flip and cook until golden.

Topping

  • 2 ripe bananans
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 handful walnuts or pecans
  • dashes of cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg

Cook down the bananas with the sugar and spices in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add a dash of water if you feel like it is sticking to the pan. Cook until the bananas let out water and become  runny (6 mins approx). That’s it!

Top pancakes with banana topping and eat. You may need a little syrup.
