Ingredients for Banana Pancakes

Batter – This batter starts with the ingredients found in our favorite buttermilk pancakes recipe. All purpose flour, baking powder and soda, a bit of butter, and some eggs.

Buttermilk makes banana pancakes light and fluffy and adds a touch of tartness. Don’t have any on hand? Make an easy buttermilk substitute with milk and vinegar or lemon juice.

Bananas – Just like banana bread, these are best with very ripe bananas. You could also mix in a few diced peaches or fresh blueberries. Be sure not to overload the batter with fruit, or the pancakes will break apart as they are flipped and handled.

Mix-Ins and Toppings

Here’s where the creative fun happens! This banana pancake recipe tastes great with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips.

Keep them fruity with delicious strawberry freezer jam, strawberry sauce, or homemade blueberry sauce.

How to Make Banana Pancakes

Easy banana pancakes are ready to serve in minutes!

  1. Mash bananas and add to the wet ingredients (per the recipe below).
  2. Combine the dry ingredients and make a well in the center. Add the banana mixture and stir until just moistened.
  3. Drop batter into an oiled pan. Flip with a spatula when bubbles start to pop at the edges.

Feeding a Crowd?

If you’re feeding a crowd, keep batches of pancakes warm in the oven. Preheat a baking tray to 200°F and add the pancakes from the skillet as they cook.

Make Ahead & Leftovers

If you have extras the remaining batter can be refrigerated for a few days or even frozen. Thaw overnight and cook as directed.

Banana pancakes freeze well. Allow them to cool, and place waxed or parchment paper between each one before loading into zip bags. They’ll retain their quality in the freezer for up to 3 months, and in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat pancakes in the microwave or in the toaster.
