Banana walnut pancakes

Posted on July 29, 2009. Filed under: Pregnancy recipes | Tags: , |

These delicious breakfast pancakes are enriched with wheat bran, bananas and milk and are perfect for brunch.
Bananas and milk provide you with all the energy needed to carry out your regular activities. They also increase the calcium and protein levels of the recipe. Most of us consider waffles and pancakes to be really sinful indulgences. It is actually the ingredients we eat with them like butter, jam or honey that actually make them full of calories. Go ahead and dab a little butter on your pancakes but remember it is an indulgence that should not be overdone.
