Healthy Banana Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour

Variations:  You can use almond milk if you prefer, coconut or almond extract instead of vanilla, or whole wheat flour instead of all purpose.  Make them how you like them!

 

Mash up banana completely.  Whisk eggs, banana, milk, vanilla, cinnamon together then fold in flour and baking powder.  Batter will still have lumps and that’s ok!

 

Pre-heat skillet over medium heat.  I use a 1/4 measuring cup to drop batter into skillet.  Allow pancakes to cook about 2 minutes on one side then flip and cook for about 2 more.  Enjoy with some syrup or peanut butter or jelly or butter or … anything that sounds good to you!
