Banana bread pancakes

Prep 15 min
Total 40 min
Serves 4 to 6



2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
overripe bananas
1 cup
1/3 cup
butter, melted
1/3 cup
brown sugar
1 tsp
2/3 cup
chocolate chips, (optional)
2/3 cup
chopped toasted walnuts, (optional)

Toppings (optional)


  • WHISK flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  • MASH bananas in a medium bowl with a fork. It should measure 1 1/2 cups. Whisk in eggs, sour cream, butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Fold into flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate and walnuts.
  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Spray with oil. Pour heaping 1/3-cup portions of batter into pan, then spread into 3-in. rounds. Cook until bubbles form on top and edges begin to brown, about 3 min. Adjust heat to medium-low if browning too quickly. Flip and continue cooking until bottoms of pancakes are golden, about 3 min. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve banana bread pancakes with maple syrup, chocolate chips and walnuts.
