A little fun fact about bananas? They’re a cure for depression. Bananas are the only fruit that contains the amino acid, tryptophan, and vitamin B6. These two chemicals help the human body produce seratonin which is also found in Prozac! How crazy is that?
Cinnamon Brown Sugar Banana Pancakes
time: 20 minutes, servings: 3
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of salt
3 teaspoons of baking powder
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups of milk* (or a dairy-free milk of your choice)
1/4 cup melted butter* (or vegetable oil)
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Completely mash the banana in a large bowl and stir in the milk, melted butter and vanilla. Add the baking powder, salt, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix in the flour slowly. If the batter becomes too thick, feel free to add a tablespoon or so of milk.
Cook the pancakes with medium heat on a griddle until both sides are cooked, about a minute or so on each side. Top them off with butter and maple syrup.
