Whole Wheat Banana Bread Pancakes

These are the best pancakes I’ve had in a long, long time.  I might even go so far as to say they’re the best pancakes I’ve had, ever!  My family was still talking about them days later.  And really, they’re not any more work than your average pancake.  Not to mention, a fantastic way to use overripe bananas.

I highly recommend the Vanilla Maple Glaze too. Just be sure to use real maple syrup.  The imitation stuff with the addition of even more sugar is a bit much.  But the combination of the glaze and the banana pancakes is oh so good!

  1. It just works (and tastes) a little better to use a combination of flours, rather than all whole wheat. You can also use all whole wheat pastry flour if you can find it in your store.

  2. wow! For real? That’s 2 of my favourite things put together! banana bread + pancakes. This must taste so heavenly. I should try it too! I love your food styling!

  3. Yum! I want to make these for breakfast tomorrow! I don’t think I’ve ever made a homemade pancake batter that didn’t have eggs in it… ?

  4. These pancakes are beautiful. So light and fluffy. I always need other ways to use up my ripe bananas other than plain old banana bread.

  5. I made these this morning. They were outstanding! Top notch.

  6. I made these yesterday for breakfast and they were so delicious! One of my favorite banana bread recipes has you nuke the bananas in the microwave for a while until they have released a good amount of juice. I did that with the bananas I used in these pancakes, as well as added an egg, and they turned out to be the moistest and most flavorful pancakes I’ve ever made. Thanks so much for the recipe!
