Heath Bar and Banana Pancakes #FoodieExtravaganza

The American pancake is derived from the Johnny Cake and the Hoe Cake, both made with milk, molasses and "Indian meal."  Eggs were added but then called Slapjacks.  Whatever and however today's pancake arrived, I am so glad it did.  I am also very happy that our host for Foodie Extravaganza, Caroline Williams, choose pancakes for us!

Pancakes are a blank slate when it comes to the varieties that can be made.  The simple batter allows for all kinds of additives and that's exactly what I did here.  This pancake came about because I had crushed Heath bars in my pantry and bananas on my countertop!

I have a couple of must-dos when making pancakes:  

1.  Let the edge become dry (see how the moist area shines and the dry area doesn't?  This is the perfect time to turn the pancake!)

2.  DO NOT push down the pancake after you turn it.  Let it rise, rise, rise! The inside will cook faster if you don't push it down!

Ok, now that we've cleared up my pet peeves, let's get on to the goodness that is warm Heath Bar and Banana Pancakes!

Heath Bar and Banana Pancakes

by Our Good Life
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 4 minutes each
Ingredients (4 pancakes)
  • 1 c pancake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 c almond milk
  • 1/2 c Heath Bar pieces
  • 1 banana, peeled, sliced and chopped
Mix together pancake mix, milk and egg. Let rest 10 minutes. Preheat skillet. If water droplets dance on the surface, it is ready for frying. If desired, add a little butter to the pan and melt. Add in Heath bar crumbles and chopped banana. Fold into batter. Use 1/4 c measuring cup and pour into center of pan. Let edges bubble and turn opaque. Turn. Let pancake rise (do not push down!) Let look until edges look dry. Remove to plate. Repeat, until all batter is used or until you have the number of pancakes you want.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and Heath bar crumbles. Serve with maple syrup.
