Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

Most people don't like having bananas once they start spotting. At my home, it is no different. My lil one hates any fruits. And among fruits, banana is his worst enemy. So I have to literally hide it in some form to make him have it. Pancakes have been one of the best ways for hiding fruits. 

I usually go for whole wheat to make it more healthy. These make a good option for breakfast, snack or tiffin. If you always tend to waste the overripe bananas then I believe it is one recipe that you should keep handy to avoid any wastage but convert it into some yummy pancakes . So here is the recipe. Hope you like it.


  1. 2 overripe bananas, mashed
  2. 1 egg, beaten
  3. 1 tbsp of melted butter
  4. 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  5. 1 tbsp of sugar
  6. 1/4 tsp of salt
  7. 1 tsp of baking powder
  8. 1 cup of milk


  • In a bowl, take the mashed bananas, the beaten egg and the melted butter. Mix it well. Add milk to it and give it a stir.
  • In another bowl, take the dry ingredients 4-7 and mix it well.
  • Now add the dry ingredients to the banana-egg-milk mixture part by part, while you stir and ensure that the ingredients get mixed well. You do not have to form a very smooth batter. Some lumps in the batter is okay. Let the batter rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Heat a griddle or frying pan. Once hot, turn it down to medium heat. 
  • Pour a scoop of the prepared batter onto the hot griddle/frying pan. Cook it for 2 minutes/ untill the base turns golden brown and then flip it and cook it for another 2 minutes.
  • Remove it onto a plate and serve immediately with some maple syrup and butter.

  1. Make sure that you beat the eggs well and also combine all the ingredients just enough (Do not over mix it. Having some lumps in the batter is fine). All these steps help make the pancakes fluffy. 
  2. The batter shouldn't be runny. It should be thick to make a fluffy pancake.
  3. You could keep the pancakes warm in the oven at 200 F, if not serving immediately .
