Buttermilk Banana Pancakes


The other morning we had a bit more time than usual in the morning, and my son wanted pancakes.  Just the day before we had been listening to Jack Johnson in the car, and one of his songs mentions “making banana pancakes.”  I told me son we should try making them sometime, as when I have gone to Hawaii in the past, I have had banana pancakes, and they are amazing!  I didn’t have a specific banana pancake recipe that I used, I just used the Betty Crocker recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes, and added mashed banana to it…they were fabulous!  Especially with some cinnamon syrup that my Mom had made for us…they taste like light and fluffy banana bread.  So good…we have made them at least 3 times since! (I will be posting the Cinnamon Syrup Recipe shortly)

NOTE: These are also great to make if you have some of your frozen buttermilk in the fridge.  Just quickly defrost in the microwave.

Makes 14 pancakes for about $0.06/pancake



1 large egg – ($0.10)

1 cup flour (I used half white and half whole wheat)

1 cup buttermilk – ($0.48)

1 Tbsp. granulated sugar

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 ripe banana, mashed – ($0.28)



Beat egg in medium bowl until fluffy.


Mash up your banana.


Add banana and remaining ingredients to egg, and mix together just before you are ready to put on your griddle…this will make them light and fluffy.


Heat griddle to about 350 degrees, and grease if necessary .  Mix your batter well.


Pour about 1/4 cup onto hot griddle per pancake.


Cook pancake until bubbly on top and puffed and dry around the edges.  Turn and cook on the other side until golden brown. Note: If you use whole wheat flour, pancakes may look a bit darker when cooked.
