~*Banana Pancakes*~

When you wake up to 2 inches of snow... have a kiddo 'blue' because it wasn't enough snow to call a snow day, only a school delay of an hour... and you have a few ripe bananas in the fruit bowl... what should you do? Well, I would recommend making some ~*Banana Pancakes*~!

I didn't have my camera ready for photos... but would like to share this recipe with you. I woke up this morning & did a quick search online... and found this recipe here. Oh goodness... it is so YUMMY! I did leave the oil out... it really isn't needed & only adds more calories. You could probably add a few chopped pecans or some mini chocolate chips... but they are wonderful as they are!


Banana Pancakes

Ingredients for Banana Pancakes Recipe

* 2 large ripe bananas
* 1 cup flour
* 2 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
* dash of grated nutmeg
* 1 Tbsp. sugar (or Splenda sweetener)
* 1 cup milk
* 2 eggs
* 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil (may be omitted)


* 2 additional bananas to slice and serve on top of the pancakes
* Maple syrup


1. Mash 2 bananas and set aside.
2. Blend dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl.
3. Add banana and wet ingredients to dry ingredients and blend until everything is moist. Batter will appear lumpy.
4. Use oil or pan spray to lightly coat a frying pan or griddle. Heat the griddle until a drop of water spattered on it sizzles.
5. Drop spoonfuls of banana pancake batter on the griddle and cook on each side until the pancakes are golden brown, but cooked through.

Note: your banana pancakes are usually ready to flip the first time when you see air bubbles rising in the pancake as it cooks.

Serve your banana pancakes with warm maple syrup and slices of fresh banana. You may also leave the nutmeg and cinnamon out of the batter and garnish with a sprinkling of cinnamon-nutmeg blended with sugar.

Wishing you all warm smiles....


ps... I should say, these pancakes got a 5~star review from the kiddo! :)


  1. The pancakes do sound yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. They will be on the menu for Saturday morning, or tomorrow if we have another snow day.

  2. Thanks for the recipe. I've printed it off to make them for my Masterchief. I know he will love them!

  3. Have you ever tried whole wheat flour instead of white?
    I use that for my pancakes and prefer it over white.
    I make them for a snack, lol.


  4. Thanks for the recipe, the pancakes sound like they would be yummy! Thanks for sharing.
    Prim Blessings! Robin
