How to Make My Favorite Banana Pancakes
“Making Banana Pancakes, pretend like it’s the weekend” (my husband sings that song every time I make these).  So I figured it was time to share my go-to recipe for banana pancakes that I make at least once a week.
It’s delicious, healthy, paleo-friendly and most importantly, my daughter and husband LOVE it. I have to be honest. I am not one to repeat a recipe. I don’t like making the same thing twice, so this was initially difficult.
Normally, I make eggs every morning so this is a special treat for those mornings we just can’t start work right away and need to ease into the work routine. I was excited to find this recipe because growing up my favorite thing to order at the Original Pancake House was banana pancakes.
Warning: I like my pancakes less pancake-y and more crepe-y.  So these might be thinner than your normal pancake. They are also quicker to make this way! Less waiting and more eating!

Note: if you are craving something extra sweet, you have my permission to add in a few chocolate chips too.
