Banana-Almond Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberry Maple Syrup

Makes about 8

Dry Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour 1 cup
Whole Wheat Flour ½ cup
Buckwheat Flour ½ cup
Toasted Almonds ½ cup
Sugar 2 Tablespoons
Cinnamon 2 teaspoons
Baking Powder 1 ½ teaspoons
Baking Soda ½ teaspoon
Salt pinch

Wet Ingredients:

Eggs 2 each
Buttermilk 2 cups (1 pint)
Vanilla 2 teaspoons
Melted Butter 2 Tablespoons


Sliced Banana’s 2 each
Blueberries ½ cup
Real Maple Syrup ½ cup


In a medium mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir them all together. In a separate, bowl mix all wet ingredients until well blended. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with a rubber spatula until incorporated. The batter will be thicker than a box mix, and a few lumps are okay. Preheat a nonstick griddle over medium heat and add desired amount (there should not be a need for add butter or oil to the griddle, the butter in the batter will keep the pancakes from sticking). Place a few banana slices onto the pancakes and let cook until golden brown, about three minutes. Flip pancakes when ready and finish cooking for about 2 more minutes. Place blueberries and syrup together in a small cup or bowl and microwave for 40 seconds.
