Serves 3-4


… 2/3 cup milk
… 3 teaspoons white vinegar or fresh lemon juice
… 1 cup whole wheat flour
… 1 tablespoon baking powder
… 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
… 1/4 teaspoon salt

… 1 large egg

For pancakes:

  1. Whisk together milk and vinegar, then set aside for about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk milk/vinegar mixture and egg together. Add 1 tablespoon melted butter, syrup and vanilla. Mash one banana and add to wet ingredients.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, gently stirring (do not overmix).
