Foodie Friday: Banana & Blueberry Pancakes

Another week has passed us by.  It has been a challenging week here in Houston with all the rain, flooding, and sadly the missing people.  My heart has just been breaking for a few families who have lost multiple members.  😦  It has just been a reminder to keep telling the ones you love that you love them.

Onto a bit of a happier note.  It is Foodie Friday again, and this week our theme was bananas!  Well bananas are on of my most favorite foods!  I could eat them all day and be a happy girl!  As a nanny I strive to provide nutritious meals to the kids I am watching.  The kids LOVE to cook/bake with me.  The other morning they wanted some blueberry pancakes!  Well, we happened to have the ingredients and so we went to town!  I have to say that these are some of the BEST pancakes I have ever made!  They were fluffy on the inside and a little crispy on the outside.  Add in fresh blueberries and they were AMAZING!
