Sunday Pancakes!

I don’t know if this is a tradition for a lot of people or just for me but Sunday when I was little was the day of SUNDAY PANCAKES! My mom,who always has pretty healthy breakfasts like whole grain toast with almond butter would throw caution to the winds and cook a huge batch of pancakes and bacon. I always wanted chocolate chip pancakes which I would have to add myself because chocolate chips was still WAY to decedent for my mom to eat in the morning. Once my chocolate chips pancakes were ready,I’d happily smother them in maple syrup and butter and have a stomach ache after two bites.Oh, what fun!

Now a days, I’m a little more self-controlled and have a much lower tolerence for tummy aches. That doesn’t mean I don’t love pancakes! But since I was the only one around this morning, I decided to make my go to recipes for Lonely Single Girl Banana Pancakes. I normally add strawberries to this recipe but since I didn’t have any around,I boiled a frozen peach from my Aunt’s tree and tossed that in which resulted in….

Lonely Girl Peach Pancakes 
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour  (I used unbleached bread flour this time because that’s all I had)
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) mashed banana (about half a banana’s worth) 
  • 1 small peach (about 2.5 oz)
  • 1 egg white 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon milk 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 packet Truvia
  • salt to taste
  • lots’o cinnamon to taste 
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 
DIRECTIONS
1. Mix up all the dry ingredients.
2. boil your peach in a small pan until defrosted or if not frozen,until the skin slips easily off.
3. Meanwhile mash the banana and the skinned peach together and mix in all the other wet ingredients.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until thoroughly combined.
5. Heat a large pan on medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Pour batter into pan. (mine made about 5 medium sized pancakes!) Once pancakes  are firm and have bubbles on the edge, 1-2 minutes, flip and cook until done.
These pancakes are soft and gooey on the inside,which is how I LOVE my pancakes. Once you pour syrup on them, they practically melt in your mouth. I also love this recipe because of how many pancakes it makes. I’ve tried lots of  pancake recipes and a lot of times,the serving size just isn’t big enough to feel like a breakfast. This recipe makes enough pancakes to stack and STILL cover your whole plate! For those who are wondering,these pancakes add up to 217 calories for the batch.

About loavesandkisses

I'm 16 and have been into cooking healthy for about two years. I love baking and a dessert without chocolate has to be pretty bloody tasty for me to like it! Right now my passion is trying out new recipes and cooking styles as a sort of self-teaching experience. I like to try out new cooking styles by sticking to that style for a week. So far it's just been a week of vegan and a week of raw. I'm hoping to try gluten free next. This blog will be about foods I make, recipes I try, restaurants I go to and (although this last sentence sounds painfully self centered) generally about me and this new world of food I just so happened to stumble into. I hope you like it. ~LoavesAndKisses
