Bananas Foster Pancakes

This is one of my favorite indulgent breakfasts. It combines one of my favorite breakfast foods, pancakes with one of my all time favorite desserts, Bananas Foster. If you haven't ordered Bananas Foster at a restaurant, go ahead and put it on your foodie bucket list because it is a must! Bananas sauteed in brown sugar, butter and rum. They light the mixture on fire, which is always fun, and serve it over vanilla ice cream. Sounds like the perfect topping for pancakes too, huh? That’s exactly what I thought! 

Make pancakes using my protein pancake recipe found on The Barnyard Bistro for a hearty, healthy pancake or use one of your own favorite pancake recipes. 

For the Bananas Fosters topping:
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp brown sugar 
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1 Large banana, sliced 
Pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg

In a small or medium skillet melt butter, brown sugar and maple syrup over medium heat. Once the brown sugar has fully dissolved add the walnuts and sliced banana. Toss to coat bananas and heat them through. Pour over pancakes and serve immediately.   

Enjoy! Xoxo~
