This Banana Nut Pancake Recipe is one of the best recipes I’ve created thus far.
Made with the ingredients of Banana Nut Bread, this Banana Nut Pancakes Recipe is nothing short of perfect and delicious.
I am telling you guys, I am on a roll when it comes to breakfast lately. I explained to you guys when I shared a recipe for my Strawberry Granola Pancakes that I have had to get my groove back when it comes to making meals. I am telling you when you have a baby, a dog, a husband, a book deal, and a full-time job making memorable dishes begins to become something that is a hit or miss. For a while there I was making crockpot meals, KFC, or something that I could put in my oven and let go. Most of the time, the food that I have made has not been the best and definitely nothing to blog about. However, now that my baby is starting to find a regular rhythm with his sleeping I am able to also find a regular rhythm with my sleeping. More sleep means more energy, which means better tasting food in my house. It is a serious win for everyone.
PAUSE FOR THE CAUSE: I am going to write a blog post about this within the upcoming weeks, but let me tell you that the 4-month sleep regression, is REAL. Have you heard of this? I have not until we started going through it. My son was sleeping so well and was on the cusp of sleeping through the night until he got sick! It was like when he got sick it erased all the progress he was making with his sleeping. I mean, I don’t know what happened or where it came from. He went from sleeping for 4-6 hours at a time to waking up EVERY HOUR! No joke. You can imagine how sleep deprived I was. We later learned about the 4-month sleep regression. Do you know about this? Don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about it later. Just know that he is not sleeping through the night but doing better, which means I am doing better. Hence, these Banana Nut Pancakes!
Okay, now, I never really cook breakfast during the week. Although I worked from home, I still never really had the time. I had to get to work! So making breakfast on the weekend was something my husband really looked forward to. When I got pregnant, it started off as a hit or miss and eventually, it became a complete miss. I just didn’t have the time. Now, I am starting to feel better and like myself so that means old habits are falling back in line. I am really going through a phase where I am taking pancake mix and repurposing them by adding different flavors. Sure I can make pancakes from scratch. I made these Ricotta Pancakes with Strawberry Topping from scratch, but if there is something out there that is already in place that will cut down on time and complication. Right? Well, I know you guys will appreciate this recipe for that reason. This Banana Nut Pancakes Recipe is made with pancake mix, walnuts, and real bananas. If you like Banana Nut Bread then this recipe will be a total win for you!
