home made banana pancakes with syrup

Smoothies always look delicious and they are also healthy and fun for breakfast or brunch. Been wanting to put up my usual pancakes and smoothie recipe but decided to switch things up a bit and try something new. I used leftover bananas (which I didn’t want to go waste) to make the banana pancakes and banana smoothie.

I used sugar cubes and not granulated sugar, so I had to dissolve the cubes in water.

Poured in the flour into the mixture and mixed thoroughly.

With my complete pancake mixture ready, I brought out my SECRET INGREDIENT; a banana. Mashed it and added to the pancake mixture.
