Banana & Walnut Pancakes W/ Maple Syrup

If you like bananas, you’ll love this recipe. It’s easy, quick and delicious.

Banana & Walnut Pancakes w/ Maple Syrup

Makes 6-8 pancakes

1 Cup Flour
1 Egg
1 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Mashed Banana (1 medium size. For better flavor, use extra ripe banana)
1/4 Walnuts (finely Chopped)
1 1/4 Cup Milk

Put the first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add milk and mix thoroughly with a whisk but do not over mix. There should be some small lumps of flour.
Heat a griddle or a large frying pan. Make sure to use a pan spray even if your pan is non-stick. Use a 1/4 cup measuring spoon for the pancake batter. This makes more consistent and even size pancakes. Cook on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. If it browns too fast, make sure to turn down the heat or else the pancake will be raw in the middle.
Serve with maple syrup or a syrup of your choice… Enjoy!


Smoked Salmon Omelette w/ Sour Cream and Salsa

This is a very easy and quick omelette.

Smoked Salmon Omelette w/Sour Cream & Salsa

Make 1 Serving

2 Large Eggs
1 Tablespoon Milk
1/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Save a tablespoon for decoration)
1/4 Cup Smoked Salmon Pieces (Not Lox)
1 Tablespoon Sour Cream
2 Tablespoon Salsa (For best results, use the fresh made kind in the grocery fridge.)
Smoked Paprika (optional)

Over medium heat, place a teaspoon of olive oil in a small (6-inch) non-stick frying pan. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk together. Gently pour egg mixture into the pan. Swirl the mixture around to evenly coat the bottom of the pan. Cook the omelette for a few minutes and then carefully flip it over in one piece. Add shredded cheese, salsa, and smoked salmon on half of the omelette. Carefully, fold the half without the filling over to form a crescent shape. Cook for couple more minutes and remove from pan. Put the omelette on a plate, sprinkle with a tablespoon of the shredded cheddar cheese and put in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until the cheese melts. Add a tablespoon of sour cream and sprinkle with some smoked paprika. Enjoy!

Note: For a spicy omelette, use hot salsa.
