Jack Johnson is full of good ideas

Eric and I listened to Jack Johnson all through our dating years at JMU. And of course we know all the words to "Banana Pancakes". I don't know when it was during our first year of marriage that we started the tradition of making banana pancakes every Saturday morning, but 3 years later, we're still going strong. It's probably one of the biggest things I'll miss when Eric leaves.

These are not your typical bisquick pancakes though. They are a from scratch, whole wheat, flax-seed recipe from my mom, which I grew up on. And we've added something new. We both love over easy eggs, which is placed on a pancake (regular, not banana) and eaten together. It's SO delicious! Here is the recipe if you so wish to try them. I dare you.=)
Whole Wheat, Flax-Seed Banana Pancakes:
1 C whole wheat flour
1 C skim milk
2 Tablespoons of oil
2-3 Tablespoons of ground flaxseed
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 of salt
Sliced banana
Makes 8-9 small pancakes. YUMMY!
