Banana Pancakes with Date Nectar

Two-ingredient banana pancakes are OK, but I really felt they could be improved with the right topping.  The recommended honey and maple syrup didn't do much for them, in my opinion.  It just so happened that when I made a batch, I was trying a new sweetener in my cereal.  I decided to put some on the pancakes, and WOW!  Date nectar took them to the next level!  The one I tried is by The Real Food Trading Company.

If you're making them for the first time, you need to know that they are VERY eggy and delicate.  I have to let them cook quite awhile before they'll flip without breaking.  Also, they taste best after they are cooled.

Two-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

1 ½-2 large ripe bananas
2 eggs
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
Date nectar (optional)

Whisk eggs.  Whisk in cinnamon.  Mash bananas with a fork.  Stir well into egg.  Coat pan with coconut oil and cook over medium until both sides are browned.  (Dark brown patches have more flavor.)

Cool.  Drizzle with date nectar.

March 2017

I'm about a month behind!  I should be doing an April post!  We were on break from co-op during part of March, which allowed me extra time to catch up around the house.  Kylen took the SAT, which he did fairly well on but not as well as we hoped.  He will likely take it again.  There were a few gatherings with family and friends, and School House Rock Live! had its last show.  We were excited my uncle's family came.

 
Packing up everything after the final show.


Kylen was pretty worn out and fell asleep a few times while watching science videos.  Isn't he cute!?


We celebrated Greg's dad's birthday.  :)

 

Kylen and I got a little silly with a napkin and lemon seed.


We really enjoyed spending time with out-of-town family, which I posted about here.


The wedding was amazing!
