Easy and yummy! Banana pancakes from scratch, with the perfect coconut syrup. My family absolutely loves them! I usually have to triple the recipe! It took me forever to find a good banana pancake recipe I like. It took me even longer to find coconut syrup I liked. This syrup is great because it doesn't have any of the coconut shavings in it. So kids will like it!

Directions

  • Whisk flour, 1 tablespoon white sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Mix milk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until incorporated.

  • Beat banana in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; mix creamed banana into batter. Stir melted butter into batter. Refrigerate batter for 10 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls into the hot oil, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Combine 1 cup white sugar, buttermilk, and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil for 1 minute; reduce heat and mix coconut extract and baking soda into the syrup. Simmer until baking soda is dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes.

I made the recipe with a cup of coconut milk and 1/4 cup milk instead of using only milk. I also fried them in a combo of butter and coconut oil. They were amazing. I highly suggest it.

If I could give it more stars I would. I've tried lots of pancake recipes and have found some excellent ones. My husband took two bites dropped his fork and said "ok this one goes at the top of the pancake recipes list."

I had trouble with the pancake batter being too thick. I had to add more milk and then after it sat for 10 minutes I had to add more. The pancakes are good and the syrup is yummy. They do make a good combination.

This is the ONLY pancake recipe I like. I actually HATE pancakes. There is no taste of baking soda they rise perfect and moist but aren't wet in the middle. It is easily pipeable into fun shapes which my daughter loves. Do not add more milk. My suggestion is use a half cup measure and let what batter comes get cooked and what stays behind go into the next pancake; there is no need for a spatula. Also these make great waffles. I stick to the recipe except I do use coconut oil for both frying and in the batter and a high quality gluten-free flour.

Delicious! I didn't make the syrup but the pancakes were awesome! The only thing I did different was added a dash or two of cinnamon. It was like eating banana bread in pancake form! Yum!

I was only looking for a good recipe for banana pancakes so I only made the pancakes and not the syrup. One day I think I'll make the coconut syrup as the recipe sounds tasty. So my review is for the pancakes alone.
