Easy Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes are the perfect solution for a delicious and hearty breakfast or afternoon snack. They are essentially regular pancakes with the powerful flavor and health benefits of bananas.


  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 350 g self-raising flour
  • 250 ml whole milk
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • butter, for frying


Recipe instructions Easy Banana Pancakes

  1. Step 1

    Sieve the flour, baking powder and a generous pinch of salt into a large bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, mash the very ripe bananas with a fork until smooth, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla extract and milk. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, tip in the wet ingredients and swiftly whisk together to create a smooth, silky batter.

  2. Step 2

    Heat a little knob of butter in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add 2-3 tbsp of the batter to the pan and cook for several minutes, or until small bubbles start appearing on the surface. Flip the pancake over and cook for 1-2 mins on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter, keeping the pancakes warm in a low oven.

  3. Step 3

    Stack the pancakes on plates and top with the banana slices, a glug of sticky maple syrup and a handful of pecan nuts, if you like.
