Banana Walnut Pancakes Recipe
1 c Eagle Mills® All-Purpose Unbleached Flour with Ultragrain®
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 c fat-free milk
1 medium ripe banana, mashed (1 med = about 1/2 cup)
1/4 c Egg Beaters® Original or Egg Beaters® 100% Egg Whites
2 tbsp Fleischmann’s® Original-stick, melted
1/4 c chopped walnuts, toasted
PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
Sliced banana, cinnamon and honey, optional
1. Combine flour, sugar and baking powder in medium bowl; set aside. Mix milk, mashed banana, Egg Beaters and Fleischmann’s in separate bowl until well blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until blended. (Do not overmix. Batter should still be slightly lumpy.) Let stand 10 minutes. Stir in chopped walnuts.
2. Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Ladle batter into skillet, using a scant 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on top; turn and cook 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
3. Serve topped with more sliced banana, cinnamon and honey, if desired.

Toasting walnuts adds to their taste and texture. To have these on hand, buy a large bag and toast all at once. Spread evenly on baking sheet. Toast about 10 minutes in a 350°F preheated oven or until fragrant and golden brown. Cool; place in a resealable plastic bag. Store in freezer.
They sound and look great, right? You can actually use Egg Beaters 100% Egg Whites for pretty much any recipe that calls for eggs for a protein-power punch that is lower calorie and lower fat than regular eggs. Totally versatile! (And just one of the things we’re talking about on Twitter with the hashtag #EBProteinPower.)
