Banana, banana and more banana...

Anyone else out there make banana pancakes on a regular basis? They are a major favorite at our house with my kids and all the daycare kids. I have to make a double batch every time! So since I still don't have anything nice to say I've decided to bless (bore) you with another recipe. This one is super simple and really is a hit with the kiddos. Are you seeing a reoccurring theme with the bananas in this house? I buy about three big bunches every week and I'm usually out before weeks full of monkeys I tell ya...


1 cup flour (what ever type you use)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup buttermilk or milk
*When adding banana to make these banana pancakes combine the milk and banana to make one cup. I usually mash 1 banana and then add enough milk to make one cup. In fact I usually add more milk to the batter after it is mixed because I like my batter thinner for these pancakes. Just depends on your personal taste. I also add a little ground Cinnamon to mine just because I love the why is smells and I think it makes them all the more yummy.

To make this super simple I just mix all the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl then make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients. I whisk the wet ingredients together in the middle and then slowly mix the dry into the wet. That probably didn't make any sense...Mainly I'm just trying to save a mixing bowl. Anyways it takes seconds to make these puppies and they are delicious. I never knew it was so easy to make pancakes from scratch until a couple years ago when someone shared this recipe with me and now I never buy the mixes.

If you have a big family or super hungry kids you better make a double batch!

Thanks! I'll be trying them, maybe tonight!! We have pancakes for supper here all the time. My kids love pancakes with bits of apple in them too. The apple cooks just soft enough to seem like little spurts of warm applesauce when you bite into them!! Do you put peanut butter on those banana pancakes?! Yum!!!
