Banana Nut Pancakes

My husband eats an egg sandwich almost every day for breakfast.  On Saturday morning, he woke up said he felt like eating some pancakes.  I had been waiting to do a banana nut pancake recipe so I ran down stairs and pulled this together while he was getting ready for the day.  I had to take the photos a bit earlier than my "perfect" photo time so they are not the best... but the pancakes sure tasted good.  The kids loved this fun pancake with the maple caramelized bananas.  It's a great way to fuel your day.

Pancakes (makes 12-14 medium size pancakes)

2  cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2-3 Tbs chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups buttermilk 
2 eggs
1 ripe banana mashed
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbs white granulated sugar
1/4 cup melted butter (plus additional for greasing pan)

Banana Maple Topping (makes 4-6 servings)
4-5 bananas sliced
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup butter
pinch salt
1 cup maple syrup (or more as desired)

Mash banana and mix with all wet ingredients.  Then mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients.  Heat griddle or frying pan on medium high heat and grease with some butter.  Ladle about 1/4 cup up to 1/3 cup onto the pan.  When the pancakes starts to make bubbles and brown on the edges, flip over and cook the other side.
   Heat butter in a separate pan and add sliced bananas and chopped nuts. Cook until bananas start to caramelize then add maple syrup and cook for another minute.  Serve hot over warm pancakes. Enjoy.
