Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Pancakes

December 13, 2009

We rescued some over-ripe bananas from the fruit market this morning. 15 for $1.00! These pancakes are hearty and heart healthy if you use egg whites. With 13 remaining, there is probably another Roasted Banana Cheesecake in our immediate future!
