sunday brunch: strawberry banana pancakes!

makes about 8 pancakes, depending on how big or small you make them.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or whole wheat flour)
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon *
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
 1 banana *
4 strawberries *

* means optional ingredients. that's what i used for my version of these pancakes.

Whisk all the ingredients together, adding the sliced bananas and strawberries to the batter last. You can add more or less bananas and strawberries, according to taste. Or even substitute it with different toppings, like chocolate chips or other fruit! It's okay if you have left over fruit. I mean, you can always add it on top of your pancakes, haha. That's what I do.

It's a really simple recipe that I  like to make even on school mornings! And, along with some scrambled egg whites and some bacon (I love bacon SO MUCH), keeps me full all day. I like to make it on weekends because I get to serve it to my little brothers and my mom and dad and it's a great way to make them eat fruit. My family's not very health conscious when it comes to consuming fruits and veggies, so any way I can get them to eat fruits and veggies is great.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!
