It doesn’t get more classic than banana pancakes. Appropriate for all meals of the day and they stack up in less than 20 minutes. Even if you’re not about the plant-based and gluten free lifestyle, I can guarantee you’re going to love these (because they taste just like the conventional version you probably grew up on).
