Breakfast is a pretty big deal around here. Out of all of the things I cook everyday, breakfast is the one I look forward to everyday.

Make a well in the centre of your dry ingredients and add the milk, egg, melted butter and mashed bananas.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients well, then stir in as many pecans as you desire.

Let the batter rest for 30 minutes for thicker pancakes.

Place a skillet over medium-high heat and brush with oil.

Once the skillet is hot, reduce heat to medium-low and scoop 1/3 cup pancake batter onto the skillet. Use the bottom of a measuring cup or spoon to smooth down in a circular pattern.

Cook until many bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes on the uncooked side.

Place the finished pancakes on a plate and keep warm by setting in your oven on the lowest setting. (You can also preheat the oven and then turn it off and just allow them to sit in the warmed oven.)

Don’t these pancakes look just amazing? If you don’t have pecans, feel free to substitute with walnuts.

I just love how easy these Banana Nut Pancakes are to make. They’re perfect for a weekend brunch, but easy enough to serve during the week for breakfast. Often, I like to make a big batch on Sunday and then have for a few days worth of breakfasts for the kids.
