Recipe: Easy, Fluffy, and Moist Banana Pancakes

April 29th 2010 / 1 minute to read


Oh wow were these a hit! Both of my sons and Keith loved these delicious pancakes!



  • 3 3/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 3 TBSP sugar
  • 2 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 TSP cinnamon
  • 1 TSP salt (I use kosher salt)
  • 3 C milk
  • 1 1/2 C mashed ripe bananas
  • 6 TBSP melted butter
  • 3 large eggs


Stir/whisk all the dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt). In a separate bowl stir/whisk the milk, banana, melted butter, and eggs. Gently pour the wet bowl into the dry, and stir JUST until there’s no obvious chunks of flour. You want lumps, lumps equal pancake perfection.

Grease a skillet or griddle (I used butter yum) and heat over medium heat (approx 300 degrees on a griddle): pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook the pancakes about 3-4 minutes per side, I use a timer. You want these to be golden brown, not pale or burnt.






I topped with butter, Keith put peanut butter on some of his, Tristan preferred to just cram them in his mouth (baby led eating at its finest lol), and Daniel liked maple syrup (the real stuff of course!).

Try these out and let me know how you enjoy them!

You know they are good when the baby enjoys them! How cute and sweet! Just stopping by from SITS to say hello…

Reply to Andrea

Thank you! Oh yes, I was a bit surprised at how much everyone tore through them lol.


Pancakes are the bane of my cooking experience. I’ve tried making them three times and always seem to fail in someway! I will have to try this recipe sometime though. I like banana flavor, but the texture can be a bit gross to me sometimes (idk why) so this is good that that too. (: Cute baby!

Reply to Audrey

How do your pancakes turn out? Too pale, too dark, not fluffy?

Aww thank you, he is the uber squish!


I burn them, they end up chewy or soggy, not fluffy. Various forms of bad.

Reply to Audrey

Sounds like the heat is just too high, they need to be cooked slowly, try a low-medium heat next time!


I’ve never really been a fan of flavored pancakes but I may try this one out some time. I know my hubby like nanner pancakes.

Reply to Keeshia

The flavor is really close to banana bread which is a HUGE favorite around here!


I’ll definitely be trying these out sometime! I’m a huge fan of your pumpkin pancakes, so these have got to be just as good!

Reply to Michelle

Aww yay! They are seriously very tasty!


I made something similar when I worked at the daycare, except it included rolled oats. Quite tasty even though I’m not one for pancakes.

Reply to Dez

An oatcake would be interesting for sure! Why you not a fan of pancakes?


Wow! Looks delicious! I just might have to try this! I’ve got a TON of banana babyfood, I could easily substitute that in, couldn’t i?

Reply to Samantha

I’ve never used/been familiar with baby food but sure it should work since you want a smoother consistency to the banana mash mixture!

Thank you so much! I love pancakes because they store well too, even though we never have any leftover lol.

I LOVE banana pancakes!!! Now…how to get the hubby to make this for me and bring it to me in bed…Think…Think.

Happy Saturday Sharefest!

When I saw this latest post on your SITS comment I had to come snd invesigate!

So glad I did – lovely blog and delicious looking recipe :)

Reply to Janmary, N Ireland

Thank you so much! I always find it hard to post recipes because I HAVE to have a photo (or 20 lol) to accompany the post and since I am picky about photography… you can see where it takes more mental thought process for me than you know, a NORMAL human to blog a simple recipe LOL!

Those pancakes look really good. Thank you for sharing.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Thank you so much Amber!

Sarah, you always have such great recipes. Those pancakes look fabulous and the boys appear to have enjoyed them very much. :) Can’t wait to give them a try myself!

Aww thank you. Oh yes, they LOVED them. I may have to make a double batch next time just to create leftovers!

Ok, those look delicious. I especially like Tristan’s approach to eating.

Happy SITS Saturday, btw :)

LOL right! It’s basically a cram it all in approach!


These look so yummy! You should totally link this up at my Vegetarian Foodie Fridays linky. It was from yesterday but I’m not posting again til Monday. It would be a great addition.

Reply to Melodie

I linked it up! Awesome linky you created! I will have to participate in it more often!

While the photos of the pancakes look delish, the photos of the kids are my favorite! So cute.

Stopping by from SITS.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest! (It’s still Saturday in my neck of the woods!)

Aww thank you! I feel like I am always fighting for either happy squishy baby photos where he isn’t lunging for the camera or photos of my oldest where he isn’t suddenly a power ranger or battle droid lol.


Oh my that looks yummy delicious. Love the pictures too!

Happy SITS Sunday :)

Reply to Maureen

Thank you Maureen!

wow i am for sure going to try these! today i have blueberries to be used, but maybe next weekend :)
love your blog design too, it’s gorgeous!

Oh what a fabulous idea! I have frozen blueberries still from LAST year’s farmers market. Banana blueberry pancakes could be very tasty!

Aww thank you so much!

My hubby makes the pancakes in our house, but I’m tempted to give these a whirl. All I seem to be reading is food blogs and recipes this morning! Your baby is edible, by the way.

Aww LOL thank you!!

This is a great way to add some fruit to my little ones diet. I will have to try it out.

Stopping by from SITS

It really is! Especially bananas which I believe are high in potassium!

Just wanted to let you know I got my hubby to make this for me yesterday. They were fantastic. My kids seemed to love them to. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

YAY I am so glad!!


We make these at our home too. They really are delicious. Visiting from SITS.

Reply to Fruitfulvine2

Oh yes, the best thing about pancakes in generally is you can put ANYTHING in them really!


Thanks for sharing the pancake recipe! They sound delicious. I have never really been a pancake person until a couple of weeks ago when I found some pumpkin pancake mix on sale at Target. I tried them and they were delicious. Me and the boy at them up. Now, I want to explore the pancake world some more! I will have to make these this coming weekend and see how I like them. [=

I LOVE banana pancakes. Have been eating them since I was a wee one. Your recipe sounds yummy – I’ve never added cinnamon to mine, though I have made cinnamon pancakes!

Visiting from SITS – Happy Day!

Oh, deliciousness! Bananas & pancakes & kiddos are fast friends in my house, too. I think I know what I’m making Sunday morning…
