Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

I usually make pancakes for my kids every Saturday morning. I really loved the Blueberry Pancakes I recently made so I decided to adapt that recipe to make cinnamon banana pancakes. They were very easy to make and so delicious. My daughter said they reminded her of really good banana bread. My husband and kids gobbled up the whole batch and they all gave the pancakes a double thumbs up…it looks like I’ll be making these again.

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes:


  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour

How to Make Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl, stirring well to combine. Combine yogurt butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs, and mashed banana in a small bowl, mix thoroughly. Add the flour mixture to the yogurt mixture, stirring until smooth.

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until the tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 2 more minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Top with freshly sliced banana and maple syrup. Enjoy.
