With naturally sweet flavor and a simple method, these pancakes are a favorite Sunday staple in our house. (I sometimes even hide a few bananas on the top of the fridge to ensure we have super ripe ones ready!)



  1. Add all ingredients to a blender except the flour. Blend until smooth.
  2. Stir in the flour to combine. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a cast iron or nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Coat with neutral oil. Spoon out 1/4 cup of the batter at a time, or less to make smaller pancakes, and spread to an even thickness about 1/2-inch thick. Let cook about 3 minutes or until the edges are set. Carefully flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately and repeat with the rest of the batter, or keep warm on a baking sheet in a 200 degree F oven.


You can add a handful of chocolate chips to the batter if you like.

Use very ripe bananas with brown spots for the best flavor.

Let the batter sit for a few minutes before you start cooking.

Spread the batter thinly to ensure that the centers cook through.

To store: Let them cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Or in the freezer in a zip top freezer bag for up to 3 months. Warm a few pancakes at a time, spread into a single layer on a heat-safe plate, for 15-30 seconds.

To make these gluten-free, use buckwheat flour.
