I love pancakes on the weekends. Especially since I don’t ever have to make them!
I thought it would be nice to switch things up a bit and asked Dino if he would add bananas and chia seeds to our go-to buttermilk pancake recipe.
At first, he looked at me like I was crazy, but I’m totally used to that.
He thought I wanted him to make an egg substitute out of the chia seeds, but I told him I just meant for him to sprinkle some in the pancakes.
The pancakes turned out great! All he did to change them up to fit my request was to pour the batter on the griddle, and before flipping, sprinkled on some chia seeds and a few banana slices. That way, when they cooked on the second side, the additional ingredients had direct contact with the hot griddle.
He also made one in the shape of Mickey Mouse for our son, with bananas for eyes and chia seeds in the ears. It was really cute, and totally his idea. Talk about bonus points!
We topped these with a little butter and real maple syrup. Delicious!
