Banana Pancakes

I keep leaving my bananas on the counter until they are over-ripe...oops! But lucky for me there are lots of recipes that use said bananas. So instead of making my banana bread again, this time it was banana pancakes. I enjoyed them with peanut butter and cinnamon. So tasty.
Banana Pancakes
4 mashed bananas (very ripe)
2 T. oil
1/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. milk
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
2 c. whole wheat flour

Combine banana, oil, sugar and egg. Mix well. Stir in buttermilk, milk, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mixture will get a little foamy. Lastly, stir in flour and mix until smooth. (Add more milk if needed.) For large pancakes, pour 1/3 c. batter into a hot, well-greased pan and let cook a few minutes:
Then flip and brown on the other side.
For me, they were a little difficult to flip so I would recommend greasing the pan between pancakes. They were so delicious and we ate them for dinner the first day and breakfast the next day. Enjoy!


  1. All your recipes sound SO good!! I think I'm going to try this one soon, my bananas keep getting over-ripe too!

  2. Haha! At least old bananas can be put to good use instead of just being thrown out! :) Let me know if you try this recipe. I really liked them and they were surprisingly good even after they had been in the fridge.
