Your day has barely just begun, and you’re already behind schedule. You probably have a house-full of reasons for the delay, but breakfast isn’t one of them. With these banana pancakes, you can finally get ahead. After a few minutes in the toaster or 30 seconds in the microwave, you have a good-as-fresh stack of flapjacks you can carry out the door. Thanks to a scoop of nut-free trail mix stirred into the batter, they don’t even need syrup on top. Their satisfying crunch and slightly sweet flavor are completely on point – more than you can say about anything else today.
