The perfect pancakes are fluffy on the inside an crispy on the outside. Well these Banana Pancakes are just that, with the taste of fresh bananas added to them!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A hearty and filling breakfast just sets the day off right.
Not only does it give your body the boost it needs to start the day, a good breakfast also helps regulate snacking and binge eating during the day.
My kids love pancakes. They want them for breakfast all the time. Well today I was happy to oblige because I also had some bananas I needed to use in something.
So I am making my poplar Banana Pancake recipe! They love Banana Bread, so hopefully they will love these Banana Pancakes.
How to make Banana Pancakes:
Pancakes are very simple go make. I will walk you through all the steps to making this banana pancake recipe, but the base recipe is my Homemade Pancake Mix recipe.
Mix your ingredients together, mash your banana well and add it to the pancake mix. Cook them up and top with syrup and banana slices and walnut pieces. Enjoy!
- All-Purpose Flour
- Baking Powder
- Egg (beaten)
- Butter (melted)
- Bananas (mashed)
- Sliced Bananas
- Maple Syrup
Step One: Add flour, sugar, and baking powder to a mixing bowl and mix to combine.
- Cooking Tip: Make sure your baking powder is fresh, as this really helps ensure you have fluffy pancakes.
Step Two: Mash bananas into an applesauce consistency to mix in the next step.
- Cooking Tip: If your pancakes are getting dark brown to burned looking turn the heat down.
- Cooking Tip: It is a good thing to see bubbles. You know they are ready to be flipped when a lot of bubbles come to the top of the batter.
Step Seven: Cook each side until fully cooked and golden brown. Serve topped with optional toppings.
Why we love this Banana Pancake Recipe:
- You can make this ahead of time: This pancake recipe or really any pancake recipe is great to make the night before. This way you can wake up and make your pancakes.
- Great way to use one ripe bananas: We always have bananas in our house. Sometimes though they get a tad too brown for my kids to eat, so making this recipe is a great way to not waste bananas.
- These pancakes reheat really well: If you and your family do not finish them all off, put them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Warm them up later on a skillet or in the microwave.
What should I top these pancakes with?
One fun thing with pancakes is topping them with addition toppings. Besides just using the standard maple syrup topping pancakes is just as fun and exciting as topping an ice cream sundae. And fun fact, a lot of pancake toppings are the same as ice cream toppings!
- Walnut pieces
- Whipped Cream
- Slices of fruit - bananas, strawberries or blueberries
