Hi all,
I haven't actually made these yet, but I thought they sounded good. FYI for anyone who is interested!

Banana-macadamia pancakes

Combine in large bowl:
2 cups flour (calls for all-purpose, I will probably use WW pastry and/or spelt)
1 tsp. baking powder
Ĺ tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. nutmeg, freshly ground

To dry ingredients add:
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 big handful of sweetened shredded coconut
1 big handful of macadamia nuts, chopped

Stir all the ingredients together until they are just combined. Itís ok if the batter is a bit lumpy, donít overmix.
Heat your skillet or pan to medium-heat and brush it with a bit of butter. When pan is ready (drop of water dances), pour about 1/3 cup of the batter onto skillet.
Place about 3 extra-thin slices of banana on top of the dollop of pancake batter as it is cooking.
Wait until the pancake bottom is deep golden in color, then flip with a spatula and cook the other side until golden. Repeat with remaining batter. Top with sifted powdered sugar, if desired.

Sherri, don't mean to hi-jack your thread, but this is my "to try" pancake.
There isn't an IHOP near us, so anytime I get into one I order these.
