Banana Pancakes Easy Enough for a Kid! :)

by brenda on February 2, 2011


Farm Boy 1 (9 years old) helped me make these pancakes. They are so easy, I think he could manage them all on his own!

Easy No Grain Banana Pancakes


5 Bananas

10 Eggs

Vanilla (optional add in)

Cinnamon (optional add in)

3/4 cup Butter (for frying)

1/2 cup Honey (to drizzle, optional)

Heat up your skillet. I love my Lodge Cast Iron Griddle, that’s what you see the pancakes on in the background! I heat it up to medium-high.

Pull out your blender. I use my Vitamix and absolutely LOVE IT. Toss in the bananas, eggs, and whatever add ins you want (cinnamon, vanilla, or none!). Turn on the blender and let it puree.

Spread a generous portion of butter over your griddle, and then pour about 1/4 cup (or less) of batter down for each pancake. Make sure it’s not too hot that it’s burning, but hot enough that it cooks quickly (make sense?). I adjust the knobs often while I make pancakes. Let cook until there are small bubbles across the top of the pancake & it can easily flip. Flip over and cook for another minute or two.

Keep pancakes warm in the oven (at 170 degrees) while you make the rest. Drizzle with honey to serve, or eat plain. We’ve served these with blueberries & yogurt on top, and that was yummy, too. I’ve also packed these as an on-the-go breakfast without honey or toppings. They are easy to eat with your hands (and some napkins), aren’t messy, and are sweet enough on their own.

I originally found this recipe at Kat’s Food Blog, a site I recommend if you want to eat GAPS/SCD style!

This recipe was shared at Kimi Harris’ Pennywise Platter and Simple Lives Thursday and Full Plate Thursday and Recipe Swap Thursday

Hi Brenda! I recently stumbled on your site, and am loving it, because we just started the GAPS Intro diet last week. I have lots of questions for you :):):) Also, I wanted to ask – these pancakes look very similar (ingredients-wise) to the banana cake recipe from the pecan bread site… which I made, and didn’t like at all because it was like the texture of quiche, but tasted like sweetness and banana. I found it weird. So, do you find the texture of these to be very “eggy” or are they somehow “pancakey”? (I enjoy the squash pancakes from the intro diet…)

I’ve never tried adding cinnamon or vanilla to them, I’ll have to try it next time. Glad you liked them 🙂

Definitely my favorite grainfree pancake recipe so far! On my second time around I added 5 tablespoons of cashew butter and 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon coconut flour, which gave the pancakes extra “oomph” and protein. Thanks very much.

I like to send pancakes with my kids to daycare because the sitter can just pop them in the toaster from frozen and serve. That didn’t work so good with these so I added 3/8 of a cup of coconut flower and some flaxseed meal and voila! They not only taste great, they stand up in the toaster!

Thanks for sharing how you made it work! That’s awesome!
