Silver Dollar Banana Cinnamon Raisin Pancakes, Bailey's size.

It's Saturday or Sunday  morning , so wake up and have these Silver Dollar Banana Cinnamon Raisin Pancakes Can you smell the cinnamon, and banana and taste the rich Maple syrup?. When we make pancakes, we like to make them on the smaller side, that way you  think that you are eating more:) These are just the right size for Bailey.  .Pancakes are the only table food, that we give her.  Obviously, she loves them. Her name isn't Bailey "Food" Higgins for nothing.
Here is Bailey with her pancakes

I adapted the recipe for Banana and Blueberry Pancakes from Comfort of Cooking.  I didn't have any blueberries, so I used raisins, and I also used almond milk.  Instead of the Cinnamon Vanilla Butter. I  I added 1tsp. cinnamon to the batter and made them silver dollar size.

Silver Dollar Banana Cinnamon Raisin Pancakes
Makes approx. 7 servings (14 pancakes) regular size
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1-1/4 cups fat-free milk  I used almond milk
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 plumped raisins ***
Maple syrup, optional

  In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, Combine the egg, milk, bananas. plumped raisins, and vanilla; Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. *** To plump raisins, soak raisins in hot water, until soft, about 5 min., then drain
Coat a large flat pan with cooking spray. Turn pan to low heat. Pour pancake batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto the pan. For silver size pancakes, use a 2 tbsp. batter.  Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown.
Serve with Maple syrup
