Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

I got the original idea from my friend here. I tweaked it a little bit to make it healthier. Zach has been working the midnight shift so I had a big, hot plate ready for him when he got home. He loved them. :)

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tblsp olive oil
1 large egg, slightly beaten

Cinnamon Filling
1/2 cup butter (make sure it's real butter), melted
3/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or whatever sugar you like to use)
1 tblsp cinnamon

1 banana
1 tblsp coconut oil

Mix all the pancake batter ingredients together an pour into skillet. In separate bowl, make the cinnamon filling. Pour into pancake batter just before flipping.

Also note that the cinnamon filling will expand the pancakes. My first try was a failure.

Make all the pancakes and put on a pretty plate.

Melt the coconut oil in the skillet and cut up bananas. Fry for about 2-3 minutes. Top over pancakes and drizzle pure maple syrup over everything. Enjoy!
