Super Supper

It all started with this post from Aliki. She discusses the wide variety of banana recipes she used this week. The banana pancakes she mentioned sounded so good to me, having never tried putting a slice of banana on one side of a half-cooked pancake before flipping it.

I used our whole wheat pancake mix, which I was nervous to try. Threw in a little milled flax seed, just to up the ante a bit.

And wow! They were so...yum.

We had fruit and sugar-free, fat-free pudding that I had made (from a box) as sides. Such a delicious supper.

My kids, well they are not 100% sold on the pancakes. But they will be. They are so good, just a little different than what they are used to.

This will definitely be a meal we have again, it's going in the rotation.

At least once a month we eat homemade oatmeal-cottage-cheese waffles for dinner. They'd be like a lead weight first thing in the AM -- but for dinner they are great!

Any advice on milled flax seed -- mine goes "off" v. quickly.

Yum! We sometimes have whole wheat pancakes for supper ... and we VERY OFTEN have omelettes. Yum!

In college that was my fav at the pancake house. I know you won't like this but they had nuts on top, too, so that cut the sugar rush from the maple syrup. M-m-m-m.

I'm so glad you tried them! T. actually loves them, but she's a big banana fan.
