½ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
¼ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
½ cup walnut pieces, optional (if using, sprinkle on top of pancake while in skillet cooking)
½ tbsp earth balance butter
Don't have that little bottle of pumpkin pie spice on hand? No worries! You can make your own pumpkin pie spice mix with ingredients you probably already have in your cabinet:
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
One big pinch of cardamom

2. Meanwhile in a medium bowl add the flours, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. Whisk together to fully combine. Set aside.
3. Mash the bananas in a large bowl, taking care to leave a few lumps. Add the CannaOil, agave nectar, vanilla extract, and soy milk mixture. Whisk together until combined. Set aside.
4. Place a large skillet over medium heat. While heating up..
5. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Make sure there are no dry ingredient lumps in that batter!
6. Once skillet is heated, lightly butter and test a baby-sized pancake to check for correct heat level. The pancake should begin bubbling and cooking through on the sides without burning on the bottom.
7. Once your heat level is solid, drop the batter into the skillet (about ¼ cup each) and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through. Hold in a warm oven until ready to eat. Top with agave nectar or maple syrup and enjoy!"
