Banana Pancakes are a delightful twist on traditional pancakes, offering a naturally sweet flavor and a moist, tender texture. Perfect for using up overripe bananas, these pancakes are a great way to start your day with a serving of fruit. They’re easy to make and can be enjoyed with a variety of toppings, from classic maple syrup to fresh fruit and nut butter.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for cooking
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Serving:

  • Maple syrup
  • Sliced bananas
  • Fresh berries
  • Nut butter or yogurt


  1. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Combine Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, mix the mashed bananas, milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Make the Batter: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined; it’s okay if there are a few lumps. Let the batter sit for a few minutes to thicken slightly.
  4. Preheat the Skillet: Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush with a little butter to lightly coat the surface.
  5. Cook the Pancakes: Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the hot skillet. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look set, about 2-3 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve: Serve the banana pancakes hot, topped with maple syrup, additional sliced bananas, fresh berries, nut butter, or yogurt as desired.
