Cranberry Banana & Almond Pancakes

Barbie Skelton


These make a hearty breakfast with lots of stuff that is good for you in them. I like the different tastes and textures. They don't need syrup. I might add a little orange zest next time. Please note that amounts are approximate. I'm one of those cooks who learned using a pinch of this and a handful of that!
