Makin’ Banana Pancakes

Posted by 7 years ago 16 Comments

Out of all my ideas this is one of my absolute favorites. It’s so fast and easy. Honestly, I can’t believe I made it up! LOL The toddler loves them and they freeze really well (just pop a frozen one in the microwave for 25 seconds!). Oh and the pancakes have no added sugar, are whole grain, low fat and only one a point a piece!

Click here to see the original Quick Whole Grain Banana Pancakes recipe. The milk can be replaced with soy milk or like a say in the video, 1/4 yogurt and 1/4 cup water mixture. Oh and if you are fighting off a chocolate craving I even turned these guys into Chocolate Banana Pancakes! Also very yummy! :)

I hope you enjoy the video. Keep your eye on the toddler. His expression at the end is priceless. I love pouty toddler face. :)

All my “pancake” ideas…

    Did you title the post the way you did because of the Jack Johnson song? I just had to ask! :) If not - google the song - you'll love it! :) Reply

    Honestly... that song inspired the recipe! LOL It's one of my favs and I never heard of banana pancakes before it! Reply

    LOL - love the pouty toddler face - he had a blast with himself in this one! (and the standard tree in his belly) I knew it! I was like - that is A HUGE coincidence if Roni just decided to put "makin'" instead of "making" if she had never heard that song! I love JJ - his music is so nice to just "chill" to! :) Reply

    The title caught my attention because we had Banana Pancake day in a feeding therapy session for one of my patients..with jack johnson Banana Pancakes song as my inspiration! Adalyn loves these, i will have to try your recipe, mine i am sure will be boring in comparison as we only add mashed bananas to whatever pre mix we have!! I posted some yummy potato -chicken-broccoli-onion savory pancakes on You could change it up to make it whole wheat! Reply

    I have been makin these banana pancakes since their inception. My daughter and I make them every Sunday and then have the left overs during the week out of the freezer. Haven't gotten the the husband and adolescent son into eating them yet but hopefully someday. I make mine with 120gms of white whole wheat flour and a cup of unsweetened almond breeze milk. They rise up really well and the almond breeze is only 40 cal a cup. Thanks for all the great recipes. Oh yea - This is my favorite Ryan video for sure. Rebecca Reply

    Made these this weekend and they were delicious!! I also put two cups of blueberries in a saucepan with a tablespoon of powdered sugar and cooked for about ten minutes until thick and syrupy and put it on top of my pancakes, it was amazing! Reply
