Banana Nut Pancakes

Hello Lovely,

Did you know that this year National Pancake Day is on February 13, 2018? I never really share pancake recipes here. I'll admit I've become very fond of waffles lately, but this weekend I was particularly inspired to make pancakes. I didn't want plain pancakes of course. So I grabbed a banana and got busy! And what better way to celebrate than with banana nut pancakes? These pancakes are the perfect way to use up those lingering bananas on your counter, and with pumpkin flax granola, they are incredibly healthy, light and moist in every bite. If only we could have this for breakfast every single morning!
