Banana Pancakes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mandy

I know that there are 128 other recipes for banana pancakes here but this is a little different. It's a Sanitarium recipe & caught my eye because of the addition of yellow split peas??? It's a fantastic way to sneak vegies into the kids, little miss DD ate these up no problem.

Thought this was an interesting & unusual way to put together a batter for pancakes, but surprise of surprises, it really works! I did use a very ripe banana 'cause I wanted the banana flavor to come through a bit! Thanks for this nice breakfast treat! [Made & reviewed in Went to the Market tag]
