Slammin’ Banana Pancakes {recipe}

slammin banana pancakes

Who doesn’t love pancakes?  It’s like having dessert for breakfast, but (usually) better for you!  My absolute favorite breakfast is banana pancakes (although these are great too)…que the song by Jack Johnson (coincidentally my favorite singer)!   I’ve tried many, many banana pancake recipes from healthy recipes, to no where near healthy recipes and I think I’ve finally found the perfect combination.  These pancakes are thin, yet fluffy, with the perfect amount of sweetness; I concocted them last weekend and they were a big hit!   So without further ado, here they are– my Slammin’ Banana Pancakes

Slammin’ Banana Pancake {recipe serves 4}

approx. 160 calories per serving

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1½ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

2 tbsp. apple sauce

1 cup skim milk

2 egg whites

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 banana, diced

1 tbsp. butter (for greasing griddle)

powdered sugar for garnish (optional)


In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Slowly whisk in the apple sauce, milk, egg whites, and vanilla–then add the diced banana.

Use butter to grease a non-stick griddle, bring the griddle to medium heat.  Pour the pancake batter onto the heated griddle, making 4-5″ circles.  When pancakes begin to bubble on top-flip (approx. 1 min).  Cook for another minute on the opposite side.  Move pancakes to a dish and garnish with powered sugar, bon appetit!

  1. My favorite pancake is with bananas and Nutella, so good. I’ll try with apple sauce next time, that looks so yum!
