- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1-1/4 cups fat-free milk
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- Maple syrup, optional
- In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the egg, milk, bananas and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with blueberries. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown. Serve with syrup and sliced bananas if desired.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled pancakes between layers of waxed paper in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, place pancakes on an ungreased baking sheet, cover with foil, and reheat in a preheated 375° oven 6-10 minutes. Or, place a stack of three pancakes on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 14 pancakes.
Reviews for Banana Blueberry Pancakes
"These were absolutely delicious! The banana flavor was excellent. Definitely the perfect portion of ingredients. I have used box pancake mix to save time. I just use the Box pancakes mixed with the vanilla extract and fruit. Turns out perfect every time."
"These were so yummy! I used whole wheat graham flour which gave them a really great textural contrast. And I used a few chocolate chips in place of the blueberries. Just a drizzle of syrup is all you need because of the sweet bananas. My 4 yr old loved them too.:)"
"Absolutely delicious! Moist, sweet enough to go without syrup. Served with a tablespoon of peanut butter and got rave reviews!"
"Didn't use the all purpose flour, just stuck with wholewheat and went for 2 bananas instead of 3 and they turned out delicious. Super fluffy and nice and easy to make!"
"Excellent! I used 2 bananas and felt that was just right. I wish that I had mashed them more thoroughly and next time I would add a little cinnamon. Otherwise I followed the recipe and myself and both kids devoured them. Made about 15 medium sized pancakes and took about 30 minutes to cook them all. quick and delicious!"
"We really enjoyed these pancakes. They were very thick, but still delicious and cooked completely. Next time I might try adding a little extra milk.."
"These are very good pancakes. I doubled the recipe and prepared the cakes on my griddle that I buttered. I didn't have any banana so I just used fresh blueberries. My batter was the perfect consistency., but if your batter is too thick a little extra milk should do the trick. The pancakes were easy to make and my family really enjoyed them. Next I make these I will try with banana."
"The pancakes were very tasty but super thick. As written the batter was almost scone like. I added a little extra milk (1/4 cup?) and it made the the mixture workable. I prefer thinner pancakes because they are easier to cook. The positives were: they tasted so good I didn't use syrup, they were very filling, and close to being healthy."
"We enjoyed these a lot; I did, however, add 2 Tablespoons melted butter and I used whole milk since I used buckwheat flour instead of whole wheat. They were healthy and tasty - a winner! I'll make them again for sure. :-)"
"I only had self rising flour, so I used that and omitted the baking powder. And I used 2 bananas instead of 3 and it was perfect! My 5 year old daughter and my picky husband loved them. I put just a tad bit of syrup on mine and they were delicious! Saving this recipe and using again!"
