3In a separate mixing bowl whisk together buttermilk, milk, mashed bananas, sour cream, egg and melted butter.
4Add dry ingredients to milk mixture and whisk just until combine (batter should be slightly lumpy, don't over-mix or your pancakes won't be as fluffy).
5Pour about 1/4 cup mixture onto buttered preheated griddle and slightly spread the batter outward keeping a circular form (this helps them to be more even so you don't get the fat center and thin sides).
6Cook until bubbles begin to appear on the surface and bottom is golden, then flip pancake and cook opposite side until golden.
7Serve immediately with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Syrup and garnish with optional banana slices and chopped nuts.

Leftover syrup is delicious over oatmeal, especially with a ripe banana mixed in.
