Pancakes are easily my favorite breakfast choice. And, after trying overly expensive pancake mixes in France, I realized they’re insanely simple to make from scratch. Since then, I’ve mastered my extra fluffy dairy free pancakes and they’ve become a weekly fixture in our household. We’ve tried adding all sorts of toppings to the mix – blueberries, chocolate chips and even sprinkles – but I’ve never considered toying with the base recipe. Why mess with something that’s already perfect?

So when Ellie said she wanted to have banana pancakes, my mind immediately freaked out and I was running through ideas on how to make them without too much effort and recipe testing. I figured a banana topping would work just as well. So I threw together this sugary, cinnamon-laced topping while Marc was busy flipping pancakes on our griddle.

If you have a sweet tooth, you’re going to love these. Just make sure you don’t skip that pinch of salt in the topping. It may seem small, but it’s really important to the overall flavor of the topping. It balances the sweetness of the dish and brings out the flavor of the pecans in the best possible way.
