    Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Pancakes

    These Whole Wheat Banana Walnut pancakes are absolutely amazing.

    I’m not kidding.

    My husband and I couldn’t help ourselves eating them before the entire batch was cooked each time we made them.

    And topped with the blueberry topping?  Absolutely amazing taste and healthy!

    Who says breakfast can’t be fun and healthy?

    Where is the Whole Wheat At?

    I can’t believe I got this right on the first try.

    My husband isn’t typically what I would call a healthy eating fan, but he tries.  And he LOVES these!  I’m talking a stack of 8 or 9 of them, he wolfed down without a second thought.

    My only issue was when I went to grab more ingredients to take pictures, everyone was sold out of 100% whole wheat flour.  And Amazon had it, but it was $30 for a normal size bag.  That one was a no for me.  I decided to wait.

    Which I was disappointed about.  So I had to wait about a month before I could find more.

    But, as you can tell, I finally found some!  Woohoo!

    So we had baking frenzy this week  and made huge batches each day until I could take the perfect picture to represent the yummy-ness of these Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Pancakes.

    Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Pancakes with Blueberry Topping

    Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Pancakes


    • Total Time: 25 minutes
    • Yield: 12 pancakes 1x
    • Diet: Low Salt

    Description

    These whole wheat banana walnut pancakes with blueberry topping are the kind of breakfast your family will go crazy for because it tastes so good.  A healthy twist on banana pancakes, these contain no refined sugar, high amounts of nutrients, and a healthy dose of fiber to make sure your day is started right and with the right amount of energy so there are no sugar crashes later.


    Ingredients

    Scale

    Pancake Batter

    3  Ripe Bananas

    2/3 Cup 100% Whole Wheat Flour

    2/3 Cup 100% Coconut Sugar

    1/3 Cup Milk

    2 Large Eggs

    4 Tbsp Melted Butter

    1 tsp Cinnamon

    1/2 tsp Baking Soda

    1 cup of Walnuts (Finely chopped)

    Topping

    3 1/2 cups Blueberries

    4 Tbsp Coconut Sugar

    3 Tbsp Lemon Juice


    Instructions

    1.  Mash the bananas.  If you do not have a masher, you can also do it with a fork.

    2. Add all ingredients for the pancake batter and mix until all combined and liquidy.

    3. Preheat Skillet on Medium-low heat (I usually use 4)

    4. Add about 1/4 cup of batter to skillet.

    5.  Flip when you see small bubbles beginning to come up on pancake (about 4 minutes).  cook for another 3-4 minutes and place on plate.  Do this for each one until all batter is gone.

    6. While pancakes are cooking, you can start the blueberry topping.

    7. Cook medium heat and add lemon juice, coconut sugar, and blueberries.

    8. Stir frequently until there is a syrup like liquid at the bottom that comes up to have the height of the remaining blueberries, and blueberries remaining look half melted (about 8-10 minutes). Set sauce aside to thicken slightly until pancakes are done.

    9.  Place pancakes on plates and cover with desired amount of sauce. Enjoy!

    Notes

    Cooking on medium heat kept burning the pancakes, which is why I recommend “4” setting.

    It’s hard to find finely diced walnuts.  We tend to buy a bag or chopped walnuts and then go over it with a rolling pin to dice them down.
