Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
1 very ripe organic banana
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon organic applesauce
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 tablespoon organic sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
organic slivered almonds
Mash banana in a bowl, then mix in other ingredients until smooth. I find it is best to mix in either the baking powder or the applesauce last as they have a tendency to foam up if added one right after the other.
Spray a non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and preheat to medium. The pan is ready when sprinkled water sizzles on it. Pour desired amount of batter onto pan and add almonds. Flip when the edges are bubbly and the other side is golden brown. I love to top these with vegan butter and pure vegan maple syrup.
