Valentine Pancake Breakfast

Here's a fun and delicious Valentine breakfast idea from me to you!

Make pancakes according to your favorite recipe (or use the one I have included). Butter them, then let cool a little. Using a cookie cutter or a buttered knife, make a heart cut out.

Prepare a fruit salad. Shown here are bananas, kiwi, and purple grapes.



Place the window pancake onto a plate and fill the heart shaped hole with fruit. Place the cut out heart off to the side.

Drizzle honey or syrup and sprinkle with powder sugar.

Enjoy your tasty, hearty Valentine!

Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

2 c. Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp. Sugar
2 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

2 1/2 to 3 c. milk (to desired consistency)
1 tsp. Vanilla
4 tsp. Vegetable oil
1 Banana, mashed

Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the wet ingredients. The batter will be slightly lumpy from the banana. Cook on a medium-low heat pan or about 300 degrees on a griddle. Enjoy!
