What’s for breakfast – banana pancakes

My little monkey Ashlyn loves her bananas, but if we buy more than 4 guaranteed there will be a few that go mushy before we get to them.  For a change of pace, I decided to make banana pancakes on the weekend for the first time using this recipe with a few little tweeks.  Ashlyn loved helping to crack the eggs and mash the bananas; she’s becoming quite the little helper in the kitchen.

Add some syrup and turkey bacon and you’ve got Ashlyn’s favourite breakfast!  This makes about 6 pancakes so make sure to double it if you’re feeding a crowd (or are just really hungry).

Banana Pancakes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Directions:

    1. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil and bananas.
    2. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.
    3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.

      Pancakes are a staple food in our house. I use Aunt Jemima mix though and make it better with whatever I have on hand. Blueberries, bananas, strawberries, chocolate chips…. all are gobbled up by my DS!
