The remnants of Hurricane Ike came through the St Louis area in the form of LOTS of rain last night and this morning.  What better way to kick-off a rainy Sunday than pancakes?!

When we were in San Francisco, my friend Beth took us to this really cute cafe for a post-hiking breakfast: The Dipsea Cafe.  I ordered their special that day, Buckwheat Banana Walnut pancakes.  They were de-licious and the Mr. and I have been thinking about them ever since.  I decided to create something similar this morning.

I used this recipe, which I suspect is from Veganomicon, since it was submitted by Isa.  I substituted whole wheat pastry flour for the white flour and used two large bananas.  My bananas were perfectly ripe and not over-ripe, so I put them in the food processor to mash/puree them nicely.

The finished product:

They were REALLY good!  I topped mine with Earth Balance, and some defrosted frozen berries.  I dipped in pure maple syrup so that I could get more of the maple-y flavor.  The recipe made about 12 small-ish pancakes, so I froze the rest for another rainy day šŸ™‚
