Banana Pancakes

banana pancakes

This banana pancake recipe from Dels Cooking Twist is absolutely delicious.
I am a big believer of breakfast food being good at all times of day and banana pancakes are a great example of this.
Pancakes for breakfast – start the day off right
Pancakes for brunch – great as a sweet side
Pancakes for afternoon snack – quick, easy and filling
Pancakes for dinner – savoury recipe
Pancakes for dessert – because dinner is not complete without a sweet treat

This recipe creates light and airy banana pancakes (as long as you be careful not to overmix!)
It is made from staple kitchen cupboard ingredients … nothing fancy here!
Easy enough for the kids to get involved and make too!


  • 180g of flour
  • 25g of sugar (optional)
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 pinch cinnamon (optional but extra yummy!)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 240 ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 60 ml canola oil (you can substitute this for any vegetable oil you have)


1 – Whisk together the flour, sugar (if using), baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Pop it to one side.
2 – Mash the bananas using a fork. Add the eggs, milk and oil. Give it a good mix.
3 – Gently mix the dry and wet ingredients together until combined. Don’t go nuts! If you over mix the pancakes will be chewy.
4 – Heat a large frying pan. Spoon some pancake mix onto the pan. Cook until bubbles start to form on the surface of the pancake. FLIP! Cook for one or two more minutes.
5 – Serve warm with toppings of your choice. I personally like to add agave syrup and some berries but you can top them with anything you like!
