Have you ever tried or heard Danny’s’ Banana Pecan Pancakes? I did. So I made a heatlhy version of these pancakes. Pecans and bananas are a great combination. This pancakes are fluffy, soft and wet. They are also really moist. I used homemade pecan milk, but you can use water or any typpe of milk. I topped them with homemade pecan butter, strawberries and cooked spiced bananas, but there are many different ways to eat them.
