Dear Love,

Whenever I hear the song “Banana Pancakes,” I’m thrown back to a time when we were holding hands in the car with the windows down soaking up the warmth of the sun and our new found love for each other. The lyrics are not particularly complicated; the melody is easy. It’s just a song about two people who can’t get enough of each other’s company, and I familiar with that feeling, an uncomplicated ease. When I look back on our years together, I am grateful that it was you.

No one knows me like you do. No one else has made me feel so at ease that I found confidence in myself and my abilities. I love a lot of people in my life, but no one quite as much as I love you. And to think how much that love has grown, I’m excited to see where it can take us.

Thank you for loving me so well. Thank you for loving Isla so well. Thank you for being my favorite person to do everything with (including watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette 😉 ). Thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for being so self-sacrificing. Thank you for supporting me in my daily life as well as my dreams. Thank you for saying those kind words when I needed them. Thank you for telling that terribly-not-funny joke to make me feel better on a rough day. Thank you for being the one to get out of bed to give Isla her pacifier in the middle of the night or to rock her when she has a nightmare. Thank you for always giving me three kisses before we go to sleep. Thank you for still holding my hand in the car. Thank you for knowing when I hate a song on the radio. Thank you for being so damn good looking. Thank you for a million other things you do for me all the time.

I love you so much Sweetheart.

Happy Anniversary.

PRINTER FRIENDLY Banana Pancakes
PREP TIME
15 minutes
COOK TIME
10 minutes
SERVES
4-6
INGREDIENTS
1 cup GF All Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 large egg
3/4 cup soy milk
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 very ripe bananas, mashed
butter for griddle
maple syrup
DIRECTIONS
1.

In a small bowl, pour in the 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 3/4 cup soy milk. Let set for 10 minutes. It should curdle and turn into a dairy-free version of buttermilk.

2.

In the meantime, whisk together all of your dry ingredients into a medium bowl: gf flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.

3.

Once your buttermilk is ready, whisk together all your wet ingredients into a small bowl: buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract, and mashed banana.

4.

Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.

5.

In a skillet or griddle, melt butter over medium-low heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. The pancakes are ready to flip when little bubbles form on top. Flip and cook until golden brown. Be mindful of the heat, you don’t want these to brown too quickly otherwise you’ll be left with the centers not fully cooked.

6.

Serve with warm maple syrup to your hearts content.
