I whip up these simple banana pancakes for my toddler for a quick homemade breakfast on busy mornings. It gets him to eat eggs and helps me use up those last ripe bananas!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add butter.

    Advertisement
  • Mash banana chunks in a bowl using a fork until it becomes a wet consistency. Add egg and whisk mixture until batter is smooth.

  • Drop batter into the hot butter to make 2 pancakes. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 2 minutes.

Cook's Note:

This recipe doubles easily.

Frying the pancakes in butter creates nice crispy edges.

Substitute 1 tablespoon coconut oil for the butter, if desired.

Tastes like eggs and a banana. My six-year-old said it was good except for the banana. She ate a few bites, then handed it to me and asked for scrambled eggs instead. Read More

I've been making this recipe for a while, except I use 2 brown eggs, and I do add a tablespoon of pancake mix just to thicken it up a bit. With regular pancakes, I feel sluggish and weighted down after eating them, so this recipe is great when I still want pancakes without the after effects. I normally eat bananas daily, so the bit of banana taste doesn't turn me off. I still add a little bit of butter on top, and eat them with syrup. I've recommend this recipe all the time to friends. :) Read More

Pretty good, though I added 1/2 tsp each of vanilla extract & cinnamon. May also add baking soda & a little coconut flour next time! Read More

So easy and super quick both picky eaters love them as do I. Technically there are two ingredients and you can use butter for a crisp edge. Omit the butter if there's too many ingredients for ya! Lol. Tried to add a photo but all recipes is a bit behind the times and won't let me add a photo from my mobile device. Read More

I took one bite and same with what HSMOM26 said taste like egg and banana. My kids also didn't really eat it a few bites only and said they were done and didn't want anymore. I'd rather stick to just a basic pancake recipe. Read More

My 7-year-old and I loved these! I would definitely make them again. Definitely a great alternative to 'traditional' pancakes. Read More
