Banana Bread Pancakes

July 23, 2010

One of my favorite Sunday breakfasts is banana bread. I’ve always been a fan of banana bread. It’s soft and moist texture filled with the flavorful taste of banana is just too good for me to pass up. This past Sunday, I wanted to try something different. Something that combined the taste of banana with one of my favorite ingredients—agave nectar. I LOVE agave and had a really bad craving for it. And pancakes. And banana bread. So banana bread pancakes were it!


1 cup unbleached all purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tbsp ground flax meal (optional)

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)

1/2 cup sugar (can substitute other sweeteners if desired)

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed (I typically blend mine in a blender)

1 1/2 cups milk (soymilk, almond, or whole milk recommended, but not required)

1/3 cup plain yogurt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Preheat griddle or large skillet on stove on medium heat. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy on medium speed for approximately 2 minutes. Turn mixer speed to slow and add vanilla, yogurt, milk, bananas, and eggs. Continue to mix until well blended and incorporated well. Slowly add in baking soda, cinnamon salt, flaxseed, and flours just until incorporated.

Pour 1/4-1/3 cup of pancake batter onto the griddle or skillet. Space pancakes several inches apart from each other. Cook approximately 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the pancakes. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional couple of minutes. You will want the pancakes to brown nicely on each side.

Remove the pancakes with a spatula and put in oven set on warm temperature (or 200 degrees or under) until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, place 1-2 pancakes on a plate. Adorn with sliced bananas, walnuts and dark agave nectar or pure maple syrup.
