Ingredients

2 eggs
1 ½ cups nonfat or 1% milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 bananas, mashed
¾ cup whole-wheat flour
¾ cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, milk, sugar, oil and bananas. 
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together flours and baking powder. Add to liquids and mix until blended.
  4. Heat a lightly greased skillet or griddle over medium-high heat (350 degrees F in an electric skillet).
  5. Pour ¼ cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook until tops are bubbly and pancakes are dry around the edges. Turn pancakes over and cook until golden brown on the bottom.
  6. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • To see if skillet is hot enough, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If drops skitter around, heat is just right.
  • Top with yogurt or any fruit or fruit sauce.

Comments

I have found that this recipe doesn't need so much baking powder, at 2 teaspoons you can taste it in the finished product, 1 1/2 teaspoons allows for enough levening and no taste.

My kids love this recipe, even the picky eaters.
These are so easy to make for my 3yo with just one bowl and i love how they cook so fast and fluffy! I did use Buttermilk instead of regular milk and cinnamon and vanilla extract.

These pancakes are delicious! Yogurt on top is a perfect addition. They also freeze perfectly and are ready to be popped in a toaster for a very quick and healthy breakfast!

Surprised many middle school and high school students with how yummy this recipe is.  Taught them how to prepare it in after-school program. Ate them hot from the grill no toppings needed.
