Well … maybe they aren’t really made for pancakes – but they are made for doing special things you might not have time to do during the week. One of those things is making breakfast for my husband. Gone are the days of Bisquick pancakes (don’t tell my kids) because we’re moving on to something with a greater nutritional punch such as Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes with flax.
This is the first time I made this recipe by Madison at Espresso and Cream but I think it’s a keeper. (Recipe at the bottom) Anything with bananas usually catches my attention because as I’ve mentioned before, I love bananas. I wasn’t sure how many pancakes the recipe made so I doubled it. Doubling made a lot so one recipe is probably just right for two people. I froze the extra pancakes so husband can reheat them during the week for something other than the usual eggs or oatmeal.
Since I was feeling so much better and today was just beautiful, we took two of the dogs (Mocha and Abby) and drove to a nearby Civil War Battlefield to take a walk in the sun. My husband took some photos as I wrangled the dogs.
Bloody Angle is a battlefield in Spotsylvania County Virginia. It was the site of the longest sustained intense fight of the Civil War. The earthen mounds they dug to protect themselves are still visible. For more information on the battlefields in this area please visit The National Park Service.
