I just made the best pancakes. They were so good, in fact, that I had to share my secret with you. It’s super easy and only requires six simple steps. Here we go!
1. Rip bananas into small pieces
- Rip bananas into small pieces
- Cut the banana into thin slices (about 1/2 inch thick)
- Peel off the skin of each slice, and cut them in half again lengthwise to make four quarters per banana
- Cut those quarters into thirds if you want smaller pieces, or leave them as is for larger chunks
2. Mash them up with a fork or spoon
Mashed bananas are the key to these pancakes. To make them, simply peel your ripe banana and cut it up into small pieces. Then, place the banana pieces in a bowl and mash them with a fork or spoon until they’re smooth. Don’t use a blender, food processor or mixer because they will turn your bananas into mush!
There’s no need to add anything else at this point; just leave those delicious little morsels of goodness alone while we move onto step 3: baking!
3. Add flour, baking powder and sugar
Now that you’ve got your egg, banana and milk mixture ready, it’s time to add the flour, baking powder and sugar. Add about 1/4 cup of each ingredient at a time and mix well between each addition until you have a thick batter. (If you’re using self-rising flour instead of all-purpose flour, this step won’t be necessary.)
You should also add some vanilla extract if desired–it adds excellent flavor! If your mixture seems too thick after adding these ingredients and mixing thoroughly with a spoon or spatula, stir in another tablespoon or two of milk until the consistency feels right for pouring into the pan.
4. Add milk to thin the mixture
This is a crucial step, as adding too much or too little milk will result in pancakes that are either too thick or thin. It’s best to add the milk gradually until you reach the right consistency.
If your mixture is too thick, add another tablespoon of flour and stir well. If it’s still not thin enough (and therefore not pancake batter), keep adding more tablespoons of flour until it reaches the desired consistency.
5. Stir in fresh blueberries and banana slices
- Stir in fresh blueberries and banana slices.
Blueberries and bananas are a classic flavor combination, and they’re even better when you add them to your pancakes! Blueberries are high in antioxidants, which can help protect against free radicals that cause cell damage. Bananas are a good source of potassium and fiber–and both blueberries and bananas contain vitamin C (which reduces inflammation), manganese (a mineral that helps with energy production), calcium (for strong bones), B vitamins (good for heart health), vitamin A (necessary for vision) as well as other essential nutrients.
6. Pour pancake batter into a skillet or griddle over medium heat until it bubbles and begins to cook through, then flip and continue cooking until browned on both sides.
Now that you have the perfect pancake batter, it’s time to make some pancakes! Follow these easy steps:
- Don’t make them too thick. If your pancakes are too thick, they will be difficult to flip and may not cook through.
- Don’t cook them too long or they will burn before they’re ready to flip.
- Don’t flip them early–wait until bubbles start forming on top before flipping! If you flip too early, it could result in an uncooked center of your flapjack…which nobody wants!
Once your first side has browned slightly around the edges (about 3 minutes), carefully turn over each pancake with a spatula and cook another two minutes or so until cooked through on both sides; remove from heat when done cooking so as not overcook while cooling down in pan
You can make delicious pancakes with just bananas!
Bananas are a great way to make pancakes. They can be used as an egg substitute, which means you don’t have to worry about breaking out the frying pan and having to wash it later on. Bananas also contain potassium, fiber and other nutrients that are good for your health. They also have a low glycemic index (GI), meaning they won’t spike your blood sugar levels like most foods do when consumed in large amounts. The combination of these factors makes bananas an excellent choice for those trying to lose weight by eating healthier foods!

I hope this post has given you some ideas for how to make pancakes with bananas. They’re a great way to use up overripe fruit and add some variety to your breakfast routine. If you want to go all out, try adding blueberries or sprinkling some cinnamon on top!
