Growing up, I loved when my dad made pancakes on the weekends. Not only were they delicious, but he would also make them into different shapes. He often spelled out our initials or made pictures, and I thought it was the coolest thing!
My fancy pancake skills are a work in progress, but I’ve mastered this simple and tasty recipe for banana pancakes.
1 ripe banana
cooking spray or oil for skillet
Optional toppings: maple syrup, butter, blueberries, peanut butter
- Mash banana with a fork in a bowl. Add eggs and mix well.
- Heat oil or cooking spray in a skillet over medium heat.
- Spoon a pancake-size amount of batter into the skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 1-2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
So simple! I was afraid these pancakes would taste eggy, but they didn’t. Personally, I think they’re already sweet enough so I don’t add maple syrup. I’ve tried them with peanut butter as well as other fruit.
