Banana Bread Pancakes

Nothing says breakfast like a stack of hot fresh pancakes.  These fluffy banana bread pancakes are sure to please!
Melissa's Cuisine: Banana Bread Pancakes
I don't make a lot of recipes more than once.  It drives Mike crazy!  A few weeks ago, I asked him what kind of rolls he wanted me to make to go with our soup.  He said "my favorite ones."  Uh...I need a little more information than that!  He couldn't remember any details about the rolls, other than that they were his favorite.  He said it wouldn't be so hard to remember if I didn't make so many different types of rolls!  Oh the joys of being married to a food blogger...

Anyway, you know that I love breakfast, and I have shared a variety of pancake recipes.  I typically make a different recipe each time I make pancakes, but with this recipe I have hit the jackpot!  The last 3 times I have made pancakes, I have made these Banana Bread Pancakes.  They are thick and fluffy with just the right amount of banana flavor.  I also add in a few chocolate chips (or peanut butter chips) for a touch of sweetness.  These pancakes are so delicious, you won't need syrup!

Typically I will make a double batch of these pancakes.  Then I freeze what I don't eat.  When I want pancakes for breakfast, I'll grab a couple from the freezer and pop them into the toaster.   A few minutes later I have "fresh baked" pancakes!
