It’s cozy season. Let’s make banana pancakes! This banana pancake recipe yields gloriously fluffy pancakes, even though they’re made with hearty whole wheat flour.
These whole grain pancakes have more substance than your average pancake, which means they can actually fuel you until lunchtime. I like to dollop them with some peanut butter for some extra fiber and protein.
I adapted these pancakes from the banana coconut pancakes in Love Real Food (page 17). If you haven’t tried those yet, you’ve been missing out! These are more classic banana pancakes, and I managed to incorporate a little more mashed banana for maximum banana flavor.
These banana pancakes are perfect for lazy weekends, and reheat well for busy weekday breakfasts. You can also double the batch and freeze extras for later. They definitely brighten up cold gray mornings, which is what we’ve been having lately.
