Whole-wheat banana pancakes

Katie's mom, Nancy, made these when Steve and I were down at Grey Rock this weekend. They were awesome, and I just had to share her recipe. Apparently she's in the process of putting all her recipes online, so I'll link to it when it's available, but for now:

Whole-wheat banana pancakes

2 - 3 bananas
1 egg
1 c. buttermilk
2 T melted butter or salad oil -- optional
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. whole-wheat flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Puree one banana in a food processor. Add the egg, buttermilk, and (if using it) the butter or salad oil and mix. Add the dry ingredients and pulse just until combined.

Grease a skillet over medium or medium-high heat and pour out a little bit of batter per pancake. Slice up the remaining banana(s) and place slices over batter, adding a little more batter to cover. Proceed as for normal pancakes.

Nancy served these with goat's milk yogurt and homegrown raspberries (delicious), but the traditional maple syrup works, too!
