Banana Pancakes


Brian and I almost always make a big lazy deal out of Sunday mornings.  Since I do the cooking most nights of the week, he does most of the cooking on the weekends.  Now that we’ve gone gluten-free he is having a fit trying to find something for Sunday Morning Breakfast in Bed…. you can’t just have cereal…. it’s Breakfast in Bed.  It has to be yummie and semi decidant.  We’ve tried the Gluten-free Bisquick… not bad… biscuits and pancakes are close to normal… There was a waffle mix that wasn’t too bad… but so far, everything was obviously just a replacement.  Until now…

There has been a recipe floating around on Pinterest for a Banana Pancake… the pictures looked great… but this is Pinterest… I’ve made a lot of recipes that turned out NOTHING like the photos.  The recipe calls for one banana and one egg… that’s it.  The bloggers promised amazing, delicious, pancakes…. uh huh.  Pancakes, huh?

What the hell?  I’ve spent a lot more on fancy gluten-free mixes… what’s one banana?

Holy cow!  Yum!  They look like pancakes, they taste like pancakes!  I was stunned.  I invited Mom over for lunch and fed her Banana Pancakes.  Mom was stunned!

I was expecting something that tasted like a banana in the shape of a pancake… this was a pancake that had a hint of banana… the banana wasn’t very prominent at all.  I added cinnamon to my recipe… because there are few things that can’t be improved by cinnamon… right?  They even crisped and puffed just like a regular pancake… something that I’ve found the gluten-free replacements don’t seem to do.  Mom figures she could probably sneak these by Dad without him knowing.  (Except that he reads my blog… so I’ve probably blown that now….. sry.)



  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
  •  1 Tbsp Butter, for frying


Melt the butter on the griddle or pan.

Mash banana and add the egg.  Mix well.  I left mine a little bit lumpy.

Pour into hot pan.  Pancakes will start to puff around the edges when they are ready to flip.  Flip!

Serve with honey.


Makes 5 smallish pancakes – I’d call it one serving.
