Banana Pecan Pancakes

I didn't get a picture of these because they were devoured in seconds of me putting the plate down. The addition of ricotta cheese makes the batter light and fluffy.  You can change this up and add fresh blueberries too. These are so easy to make and you will be a superstar! 

1 medium banana, sliced in circles
1 c. flour
1 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 tbs. ricotta cheese
sprinkle of pecans
warm maple syrup

In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking soda & powder & salt.  Add the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. 

You don't want to over mix otherwise the batter will become tough.

Pour laddle full portions onto a greased griddle or skillet.  Once you flip, add the discs of bananas and pecans.

Serve topped with more fresh bananas and nuts and warm maple syrup.
