Banana Pancakes

I have a love-hate relationship with breakfast. Mainly because if I have a nice hearty one I feel like I can take on the world, but if I have some cereal or no breakfast at all,  just getting to lunch can be a struggle. Breakfast should give sufficient nourishment in convenient fashion. It only takes a max of five minutes to make eggs and 10 minutes to make pancakes or french toast.  The difference for me in starting my day with cereal compared to scrambled eggs, fresh fruit and some yogurt is like night and day.

Pre-mashed batter

One thing that I have never understood is when I go to restaurants and order fruit or nut pancakes the fruits or nuts always come sliced and put on top of them. If I wanted a blueberries or a banana I would have asked for that separately but I ordered BANANA PANCAKES. I want the ingredients in the pancakes or waffles.

So the following recipe will be for pancakes that have bananas in them!!!

Mashed Banana Pancakes Batter


When I make either pancakes or waffles I usually use a mix for convenience.

  • 2 cup mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas (depending on how strong you like your banana flavor add or subtract as you see fit)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 medium bowl
  • 1 frying pan
  • 1 masher

Optional: for sweeter dessert like pancakes.

  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • Syrup
  • Butter

Banana pancakes cooking


Whisk pancake mix, milk, eggs and cinnamon in a bowl. Peel and add bananas. Mash the bananas into the batter until there are no large chunks and whisk to create an even batter. Pour 1/4 cup onto hot frying pan. Cook until both sides are golden brown. Continue until there is no more batter. Enjoy!
