Breakfast Recipe

Banana Pancakes

Oh-so fluffy Banana Pancakes. Fluffy, thick, and bursting with banana flavor. Topped with fried bananas, walnuts, and maple syrup. These pancakes only require 10 ingredients and are super simple to whip up. 

Thick and fluffy pancakes are my favorite kind of pancakes to eat for breakfast or brunch. I wanted to make sure these pancakes were packed with banana flavor. So I used 2 mashed bananas to make the inside of the pancakes soft and naturally sweetened. I recommend using 2 medium bananas for this recipe, but if you just have two it still will taste wonderful. 


  • To mash the banana I used a fork. If you have a potato masher, that will also work well. 
  • Make sure to combine the milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl first. You will want to give it time to form the buttermilk mixture. 
  • Always mix your dry and wet ingredients separately before mixing them together. This will prevent the baking soda and powder from activating right away. 
  • When you do wisk the wet and dry together you don’t want to over mix the batter. The batter will look slightly clumpy with the mashed banana in the batter. Once the pancakes cook you will not see the clumps.
  • When frying your pancakes I recommend adding ¼ tsp of butter to the pan. It will make the outside of your pancakes that beautiful golden brown color. If you do not have butter use a neutral oil so that the pancakes do not stick to the pan. 

I topped my Banana Pancakes with fried bananas, walnuts, and maple syrup. To fry, heat a pan on medium heat. Once hot, add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the pan. Once the oil melts add the  sliced bananas. Fry for 3 minutes, flip, and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon and add them to your pancake stack. 

The options for toppings for these Banana Pancakes are endless. The fun part of this is that you can get super creative! Other toppings that I recommend include:


Fresh Fruit

Fruit Compote 

Coconut Flakes 

Whipped Cream

Dark Chocolate Chips 

These Banana Pancakes are: 



Kid Friendly

Easy to make 

Bursting with banana flavor 

Want to make sure you have leftovers? Double the recipe and wrap the pancakes up and place them in the refrigerator or freezer. When I am ready to eat the pancakes I just take them out and pop them in the microwave or toaster.

When you make these pancakes I would love it if you would snap a photo of your food and share it with me on instagram I can’t wait to see how you like them.
