Buttermilk Banana Pancakes


        Did everyone survive Thanksgiving? Did anyone venture out and shop the day after? I think I may have gone shopping a total of one time the day after Thanksgiving. I know alot of people go crazy on Black Friday, but it never really appealed to me. The crazy early hours and dealing with massive crowds just didn't make it worth it to me when it came to scoring the deals that were sold out before you even got there. We had a wonderful day..we ate on saturday when everyone was home and chatted while listening to christmas music.

So lets talk pancakes. We love them. I don't think I ever met a pancake I didn't like..unless you burn it and then thats just icky. I love to try new recipes and this one is a huge winner in our house. The boys kept mentioning how much they loved the banana in it and how soft they were. I served this with a simple peanut butter maple syrup and I may or may not have eaten that with a spoon!

2 tsp. Baking Powder
1-1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt

Peanut Butter Maple Syrup:
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
