This is a recipe that I had an idea for. I made it one morning and it seemed to come out very good. It has a mild flavor, nothing extremely strong. I tried to make it as healthy as I could at the time since the only thing I actually bought to make this recipe was a small pack of chopped pecans.
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 2 cups Bisquick Heart Smart mix
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 (2 1/4 ounce) packageof chopped pecans (the choice of which nut to use is entirely up to you)
- 2 mashed bananas
- 1 (12 ounce) can cooking spray (any size will do)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (add more or less if you want to)
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, making sure to mash your bananas before adding them into the bowl. Be sure to get all of the lumps from out of the batter, and whip the batter before you are done stirring.
- Heat a non stick skillet on your stove top on high heat. Make sure to spray your skillet with cooking spray really well.
- Once your skillet is hot reduce heat to medium. Using a very large spoon scoop some of the pancake batter from out of the bowl and pour the batter from your spoon onto the hot skillet. Lightly spray the pancake mix in the skillet with cooking spray.
- When your pancake mix in the skillet begins to bubble (shouldn't take long) take a spatula and scoop the pancake up, flipping it over in the skillet so that the other side can cook. Let it sit for more than a few seconds before picking it up with your spatula. If the bottom of the pancake has a light brown (or darker) color to it then it is ready to be removed from the skillet.
- As you remove the pancakes individually from the skillet place them on any kind of plate, adding a little butter to each one (optional, of course).
- Serve warm with syrup or jelly/jam, etc.
- Optional: Cut small slices of bananas to place on top of the pancakes when you serve them. You can also top them off with nuts of your choice.
- Note: These pancakes "can" be reheated if there are any left over. It is possible that these could be freezed in your freezer also.
LIght and fluffy! I used chopped walnuts, added 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. salt and omitted the cinnamon. I love how the recipe didn't require much oil. Will be making these again...Thanks!
