LAist in the Kitchen: Banana Pancakes

After almost two weeks of watching speed skaters stuffed like sausages into slick full-body leotards and figure skaters exposing their, uh, figures in tiny frilled dresses, LAist is on a mission to eat a breakfast of champions. Or rather, brunch, since we went out last night.

While yogurt, granola and fresh fruit might seem the most proper, it is LA's one month of winter, and we'd like something a little warmer, like pancakes. To make it good for our bodies, we're using whole wheat flour and loading the pancakes with fiber and potassium in the form of bananas.

Just don't give us that dirty look when we start drowning them in syrup. Hey, pure maple syrup is all-natural, okay?
