Banana Pancakes n.n

Alright! So the quest continues... a terrible thing happened today, I woke up and it was raining u.u it is 2: 37 pm and it hasn't stopped raining. It's a miserable cold, wet, grey day and I am hating it. 
However there is something that made me cheer up a bit this morning, and that was my breakfast n.n
As I woke up and headed to the kitchen I grabbed this amazing Food Magazine I bought a few weeks back that featured this nice recipe for pancakes. 
Little did I know that it was buttermilk pancakes and guess what? I didn't have buttermilk around. And I was not in the mood for attempting to make my own. So I decided to change things up a bit. 
Instead of using buttermilk as the wow factor I used banana. 
And instead of using milk I used natural Yogurt. 

Look at that amazingly gorgeous thing right here in this photo! I mean talk about finger-linking good! Right? 
I am of course talking about my pancakes. Not myself. Me? I look all pale and morning-ish. 

Moving on. 

I know... we most certainly cannot argue the fact that my banana pancakes do look exquisite. 
However there were some small flaws with the recipe. I found it slightly chewy and terribly hard to flip them on the pan. I don't know if I chose a wrong pan for pancakes or if the mixture was somewhat off because of the change of ingredients. 
At first I was so excited because the mix looked really smooth and delicious. Almost like a cupcake mix and well the last pancakes I made the mix turned of quite runny and I like it when the mixes are smooth. 
They look prettier that way. 
I suppose we owe this to the yogurt instead of milk thing I did. 
It also turned up to be like really chunky and moist. Again I suppose this we owe to the banana's we added. 
But well all in all they were made a really good smile awarding breakfast.

And it goes like this: 

1 cup of all purpose flour.
1 cup of sugar. 
1 1/2 cup of natural yogurt.  
1 teaspoon of vanilla. 
Two tablespoons of oil. 
1 egg. 
1 banana chopped. 


Ok. So first I placed the flour in a big bowl and added the cup of sugar and gave in a nice stir. Then in a small bowl I mixed the yogurt with the vanilla and added it to the sugar and flour mix before adding the egg and stirring it until there were no lumps. I suppose at this point you should add the oil as well, but I forgot it and add it in the end lol. 
Now using a fork we'll create a sort of Gerber banana pudding thing. Just press the fork against the banana. Add the cinnamon and then add the banana into the pancake mix. 
Give it a nice stir and then in a preheated pan start cooking your pancakes n.n and add them your topping of preference. Mine is always maple syrup.
