Banana Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

I love banana nut bread so I decided to make banana nut pancakes. Really, it's just my normal pancake recipe with additions. I've also added blueberries.

1/2 cup plain flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 T wheat germ (optional)
2 t baking powder
3/4 t salt
1 1/4 cup milk (you may want to use more to make a thinner batter)
1 egg
2 t vanilla
2 T oil
mashed banana
chopped pecans

Mix the dry ingredients. Mix the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well but do not overstir. When making the pancakes, add the mashed banana and chopped pecans. Then, when you turn the pancake, you'll have nice caramelization of the banana and toasting of the pecans.

Wow - I think I've made something similar in the past! I'm a big banana nut fan (nut?) too -

I think I may take this recipe and try to replace banana with pumpkin. What do you think???? Should we try it and see???

I must not have these comments emailed to me as I didn't realize I had comments :). Rodney - did you try the pumpkin in the pancakes? Let me know how it goes. We're still eating banana nut pancakes. Although, I'm now on a mission to make corn pancakes. I had some at brunch a few weeks back and they were so delicious. I'll post the two recipes I've tried so far. Let me know of ideas to make them better.
