Use your brown bananas to make these deliciously sweet pancakes! Those Brown bananas are good for more than just banana bread!


1 cup browned banana, about two bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted plus some for cooking


1) Peel bananas and measure out exactly one cup. Then mash them in a small bowl. Add liquid ingredients (milk, egg, melted butter, vanilla) to bananas.

2) Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl.

3) Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and combine well.

4) Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a small knob of butter.

5) Once butter is melted, scoop in 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake. Depending on the size of your griddle or skillet you should be able to make more than one at a time.

6) Cook until pancakes are firm around the edges and have large bubbles forming on top, about 3 minutes. Then flip.

7) Cook for another 1-2 minutes on the second side.

8) Serve pancakes immediately with fresh fruit, butter, and/or maple syrup.
