3 ripe bananas - even slightly over-ripe bananas work really well
2 tbls butter
4 tbls butter milk - I usually use skim milk and it works just as well, if you are trying to save calories
1 tbls honey
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
In a small mixing bowl combine wet ingredients. Mash up the bananas, melt the butter and add to the bananas, then add the honey, milk, and eggs (one at the time, mixing after each).
In a medium mixing bowl combine dry ingredients. Then make a slight well in in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the wet mixture. Mix until all the flour is combined. Be careful not to over-mix.
Pour 1/4 cups full of the batter onto the hot griddle. Once the edges look slightly dry and there are bubbles, it is time to flip the pancakes. About 1 minute per side.
Makes approximately 8 medium sized pancakes. Serve with real Maple Syrup, or eat plain with a few slices of fresh banana or your favorite fresh fruit.
