Banana Pancakes might just be one of my all-time favorite pancake flavors. I love trying new combinations but I usually always go back to my tried-and-true favorite.
Most of the other banana pancakes I’ve made for the blog have been “healthy” made with oats, cottage cheese, or protein powder.
Well, today I’m bringing you just a good old-fashion banana pancake made with regular all-purpose flour, mashed bananas, and a delicious drizzle of sweet maple syrup.
Start by heating your electric griddle to about medium heat and either spraying with non-stick cooking spray or coating with a little butter.
In a large bowl, add your flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt and whisk to combine and get out most of the lumps of flour. If you prefer, you can sift the ingredients together but it’s not necessary. Pancakes do fine with a few lumps of flour in them.
Add your eggs, milk, and melted butter to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Then fold in your mashed bananas. Don’t over mix the bananas in because you want s few chunks of banana throughout the batter.
Scoop the batter by 1/4 cupful’s onto the heated griddle and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until little bubbles begin to form on the surface.
Flip pancakes and cook for additional 3-4 minutes on the other side and golden brown. Remove from griddle to wire cooking rack to prevent them from getting soggy and repeat with the remainder of the batter.
Slice up some fresh banana slices and serve pancakes topped with slices of bananas and a drizzle of your favorite maple syrup.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
