Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

  • 2 small bananas, mashed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

This recipe is another super way to use up ageing bananas. Begin by mashing the bananas in a large bowl. Whisk in the egg and milk. Beat the mixture until the banana is as smooth as you can reasonably get it. Measure in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk again until the batter is smooth. Drop by 1/4-cupfuls onto an oiled skillet or griddle. Cook until brown underneath and dry on top with tiny bubbles. Flip to brown the second side. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot with syrup or applesauce. Very good.

    Hey, this recipe was great! Moist and fluffy and not too sweet, plus super easy and inexpensive ingredients. Perfect with just a little bit of maple syrup. Thank you!

    Oh, and Michelle,

    I used one medium-large sized banana, and it worked fine. I just reduced the milk a smidge; just added almost all the milk till it was the consistency I liked.

    this is my new favorite pancake recipe! so moist, delicious, and not sweet. use vanilla almond or coconut milk instead of cow’s milk. i also add a sprinkle of sweetened shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, and sometimes a small handful of dark or white chocolate chips if i’m feeling wild! :)

    I just made these pancake and they are delicous! I added toasted walnuts in the second batch and used organic carmel syrup! Yummy! The best!

    I printed this recipe out a couple of years ago, and it has become our standard pancake recipe. Thanks for sharing it–we love it.

    This was a perfect recipe! So simple and at the same time so delicious. I just made them for breakfast this morning, never having made pancakes before, and it was absolutely perfect. Thanks!

    I made these for a simple dinner tonight and I really liked them…I added about 2 tbsp. olive oil and around 1/2-1 tsp.cinnamon and some pecans. Great with maple syrup. I got 10 medium pancakes. Tip: when your bananas get really ripe, peel and freeze for recipes like this, banana breads, smoothies, etc.
