Notes

Recipe Notes

  • To see if skillet is hot enough, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If drops skitter around, heat is just right.
  • Top with applesauce, fresh fruit or yogurt.

Ingredients

2 eggs
1 ½ cups nonfat or 1% milk
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons oil
2 bananas, mashed
¾ cup whole wheat flour
¾ cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions

  1. Beat eggs in medium bowl. Add milk, sugar, oil and bananas and mix well. Add flours and baking powder. Mix gently.
  2. Lightly spray a large skillet or griddle with non-stick cooking spray or lightly wipe with oil. Heat skillet or griddle over medium-high heat (350 degrees in an electric skillet).
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook until tops are bubbly and pancakes are dry around the edges. Flip and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Surprised many middle school and high school students with how yummy this recipe is.  Taught them how to prepare it in after-school program. Ate them hot from the grill no toppings needed.

These pancakes are delicious! Yogurt on top is a perfect addition. They also freeze perfectly and are ready to be popped in a toaster for a very quick and healthy breakfast!

These are so easy to make for my 3yo with just one bowl and i love how they cook so fast and fluffy! I did use Buttermilk instead of regular milk and cinnamon and vanilla extract.
My kids love this recipe, even the picky eaters.

I have found that this recipe doesn't need so much baking powder, at 2 teaspoons you can taste it in the finished product, 1 1/2 teaspoons allows for enough levening and no taste.
