Banana Pancakes for DH

I am still living the low-carb lifestyle but DH J most definitely is not. He is the president of carb-o-holics anonymous!
On Sunday, I decided to use one very browned banana for a quick breakfast and the result was this:

     -  1 cup flour
     -  1 cup all-purpose flour
     -  1 tablespoon white sugar
     -  2 teaspoons baking powder
     -  1/4 teaspoon salt
     -  1 egg, beaten
     -  1 cup milk
     -  2 tablespoons vegetable oil
     -  2 ripe bananas, mashed

1.  Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt
2.  In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.

3.  Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy-- DO NOT OVER MIX
4.  Pour batter onto well greased/oiled frying pan on medium heat.

**Recipe makes 8 medium to large size pancakes, I halfed the recipe and it was plenty for one person**

TOPPING: a combination of peanut butter + maple syrup cooked over low-medium heat for about 5 minutes until melted and well mixed together. I used probably 1 tbsp Peanut Butter and 2 tbsp maple syrup (made enough for one).  You can alter the consistency and amounts of each ingredient, to taste.
