Blueberry Banana Pancakes!

Fried cake for breakfast!  Yes!  Tasty with no nutritional content is exactly what I need this morning.  Of course I added some fruit so I could lie to myself about how healthy my breakfast was today.  Pancakes are the perfect cure for overdosing on Bud Light.  I adapted this recipe from a super easy recipe on vegweb called the Best Tasting Pancakes Ever! Vegan or Otherwise...  And I will attest to that... maybe besides McDonalds... sorry but I gots to keep it real.  I don't know how the fuck Micky D's does it but from what I remember those delicate little puppies are scrumptious.  Anyways the recipe is bomb and with my adaptations a little healthier and maybe even a little more delish.

Disclaimer:  I do not endorse the consumption of any food prepared at a fast food restaurant... especially McDonalds!

Blueberry Banana Pancakes

1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup applesauce or other egg replacement
1 cup almond milk or other milk replacement
2 tablespoons coconut oil or oil of your preference
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons turbinado sugar or sweetener of your preference
sliced banana

1.  Mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients separately.

2.  Begin heating pan on medium heat.  While pan is heating add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.  If too thick add milk alternative.

3.  Grease pan with oil of your liking and drop about 1/4 cup of batter on the heated pan.  Cook until it begins to bubble on the top and add the blueberry and banana to the uncooked side of the pancake and let cook for another minute or two until the fruit is set a little ande quickly and carefully flip.  If you have not made pancakes this way before it may take some practice but even if they don't flip perfectly they will still taste good.  Cook pancake until golden brown on each side and repeat until all batter is used.

Finish with toppings of your liking and dig in.  This recipe makes about 5-6 4 inch pancakes.
