Rusty’s Banana Pancakes: No Sugar, Just As Sweet

pancake cropHere’s a recipe for banana pancakes that sure to please. No sugar added.
Ingredients
1 cup flour (can be all-purpose, whole wheat or a combo)
1 cup milk (2% low fat is fine)
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 egg
1 TBSP butter (melted)
1 ripe banana

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Separately, mix the milk, egg, and butter. Pour that into the dry ingredients in the bowl. Mash the ripe banana flat, and then stir that into the batter in the bowl. The batter will be slightly lumpy.

Heat a griddle (a good Teflon coated griddle shouldn’t need oil at all) to 400 degrees. When hot, pour in about a ¼ cup of the mixture for each pancake. Wait for bubbles to show up thoroughly, then turn. Allow to brown on the bottom side (about 30 or 40 seconds) and they’re ready. Serve with butter, syrup and a side of strawberries and orange slices.

I’ve been making these for years. Never added sugar. And it has minimum amounts of baking powder and salt.
