You know who I just love to pieces? Jack Johnson. Without a doubt, he is one of my top three favorite artists. He makes up 8.5% of my iTunes library. And in my top three favorite Jack Johnson songs, Banana Pancakes for sure! My sweet Ben bought me tickets to see Jack Johnson in concert last month as an anniversary gift, and we had a truly wonderful time. Perfect weather in an outdoor venue, mellow environment, and great people watching. (Also, we had a fabulous sushi dinner before the concert – a truly perfect evening!) If you are a fan and you have never seen him in concert, I highly recommend it!
Anyway, the day after the concert I just couldn’t resist making banana pancakes for breakfast. Cliche? Maybe, but also delicious. I’ve got to give Jack credit because before hearing that song, I had never even heard of banana pancakes, let alone tasted them. Now this recipe has been a favorite in our household for several years. These are easy as can be and would be great for a fun weekend project with the kiddos. Even though Andrew isn’t quite old enough to help yet, he definitely did his part in eating them.
