How to Make Banana Pancakes out of Pancake Mix

How to Make Banana Pancakes out of Pancake Mix

Jack Johnson is a favorite musician of mine. He sings a song called “Banana Pancakes”.

A verse of the song goes,
“But, baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep you
From doing what you’re supposed to.
Waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
Make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now
And we could pretend it all the time…”

Since hearing this song years ago I’ve always had a hankering to try banana pancakes. Unbelievably, I never have…until Saturday.

This weekend I had 3 pretty ripe (yellow with some browning) bananas. I was making pancakes and breakfast for my friend and kids. I decided to end the long-awaited-yet-highly-anticipated-hankering-for-banana-pancakes (don’t you just love long hyphenated words?) that I’ve had. So, I mashed them up and added a few other ingredients to the pancake mix I had on hand.

A little experimentation resulted in an excellent pancake/flapjack that was even more delicious than I thought a banana pancake would be. Really, these are a ‘must-try’. They are moist and flavorful yet filling. Also, they hold their shape like a pancake or flapjack.

They are excellent with a variety of toppings such as: peanut butter, Nutella, honey, syrup, butter, jelly, fresh fruit, and/or whipping cream.

Convenience is always nice for breakfast foods. By utilizing a pre-made pancake mix this recipe can be prepped in just a few minutes! I will be making banana pancakes regularly from now on.

    Heat pan or skillet to medium heat or 350 F.
  2. Spray non-stick cooking spray onto surface of pan or griddle. Once the griddle is hot (test by dropping a drop of water on the pan—it should make a hissing sound and evaporate quickly), pour 1/4-1/2 Cup of batter on the pan.

    Because of the banana, these pancakes will be heavier and a little more difficult to flip than a normal one. If the side faced down is cooked to a light brown and most of the air bubbles are popped before you try to flip it and you get a good scoop underneath the pancake with a spatula, they will flip just fine. Cook the other side until light brown or cooked through as well.

  3. Top with one or more of the following: syrup, peanut butter, Nutella, butter, jelly, honey, marshmallow creme, fresh fruit, whipping cream, ice cream, etc.

    What a great way to use up bananas! We always seem to have 1 or 2 that go bad before we can eat them. We’ll have to try this soon :)
