Banana bread pancakes

So your all pretty familiar with my love of pancakes by now I just think they are by far the most exciting thing to eat for breakfast( its the little things in life that do it for me). But surprisingly enough I would be very conscience of what I eat, like many of you I have a resident devil + angel living on either shoulder willing me or taunting me to eat all the food choices that come my way.

So it dawned on me if I can have my wee ones eat only brown bread why not slip a little of the whole wheat into their pancakes....soooo I did but oh I didn't stop there, bananas are a fab "accessory" to add to pancakes so I said feck it il add them in too. I then took a gander in the pantry + found honey and coconut flakes, happy days iv the making for banana bread but il stick it in their pancakes...

For this recipe you will need:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 large egg
1 cup of butter milk
1 chopped banana 
1 table spoon of coconut flakes
1 to 2 tablespoon of honey

So to start by adding both flours, baking powder, eggs and buttermilk to your bowl and mix really well untiil you get a smooth frothy texture.

Next dollop small portions of your pancake batter onto your pre heated pan that you've splashed with a teeny bit of oil. I usually dollop four pancakes at a time unless of course you are looking to make a bigger pancake.

Once your pancakes are on gingerly place your sliced banana pieces onto the pancakes, before you turn the pancakes sprinkle a small amount of your coconut flakes over each of them then turn. 

Next add a small teaspoon of the honey to the base of each pancake. keep a close eye on the pan, there is a fine line between toasted coconut + burnt honey with cremated coconut the latter ain't so good... 

And that's all she wrote these little babies are so good with the tangy taste from the buttermilk + the wholesomeness of the flour all combined with the totally tropical extras your onto a winner
