Banana Bread Pancakes

 A few weekends ago, I was trying to decide on what to make for Sunday breakfast.  The kids mentioned pancakes, but truth be told, regular pancakes really aren’t my favorite thing.   I love fruit filled pancakes, however.  Especially blueberry! Swoon. They were even my favorite, until these Banana Bread Pancakes happened.

Another side story … I feel like I can’t decide from week to week if we will end up with too many bananas or not enough.  If I buy three, they are gone in a snap and someone is asking “Are you going to the store?  We need bananas.”  If I buy a whole bunch, they are brown and I am having to freeze them.  


How to Freeze Bananas:

Do you freeze your bananas?  I do all of the time!  Works great for smoothies, or anything that calls for ripe bananas, like this 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana “Ice Cream.”

I always have bananas in the freezer.  You never know when you have a hankerin’ for banana bread, am I right?

My go-to banana bread recipe, a.k.a. “The Very Best Banana Bread,” happens around here quite a bit.  Sometimes though, you want a little something different.  That’s when I make a loaf or two of my Chocolate Orange Banana Bread, or my S’More Banana Bread.

  1. Mmmm, these look delicious! Lately I’ve been trying to stash a few bananas to freeze, but they keep getting eaten. I’m buying a bunch and hiding them to make these delicious pancakes and your banana coffee cake!

  2. I’m an odd ball and eat every single banana I buy – even if it’s a whole bunch – before they have the chance to even get remotely ripe enough to cook with. I have to purposely buy at two bunches to have the chance to bake with them or have some serious will power. I just love fresh fruit of all kinds. I also love pancakes of all kinds so sounds like I need to stock up on bananas!

  3. It is so funny that the first thing I think to make when the bananas are getting to ripe is banana bread, but these pancakes look like a marvelous choice instead.

  4. Ooh yummy! I love banana bread and pancakes, so… And my banana problem is random. My husband eats them in his smoothies, so every banan we buy ends up peeled, halved, and frozen. So when I get a hankering for a banana, we don’t have them in the right form! I’m slowly realizing I have to pull off 1 or 2 for myself each time we buy a bunch!!

  5. What a great way to use those ripened bananas. I also have all of these ingredients in my pantry right now so I’ll be making these for breakfast. Thanks for sharing!

  6. How simple and yet so delicious. This is definitely something my family would love to have for breakfast. We love banana bread so I’m sure we gonna love this recipe. Can’t wait to make these pancakes.

  7. I have been wondering what to do for a weekend brunch and these banana pancakes are just perfect!

  8. These would be the perfect thing to motivate a family to get out of bed in the morning! They’d all come running for sure!

  9. Two of my favorite things put together: banana bread and pancakes! I can’t wait to try these this weekend!

  10. These are so good and easy to make! Only thing I changed was using less sugar because I think they’re sweet enough and not using butter in the batter because I cook them in butter in the pan. Also I add more bisquick so they come out big and fluffy. Sooo tasty and (I think even better than banana bread)!
