These gourmet looking pancakes are simply made . Begin with Bisquick mix, add in ripe bananas and a few spices and you have this scrumptious stack of 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.
I am getting away from myself, aren’t I? Today we aren’t talking about Banana Bread, at least in the traditional sense, are we? Today … It’s all about this stack of Banana Bread Pancakes!
Top them off with some walnuts and banana slices, and drizzle on some warm maple syrup, and you have breakfast fit for a king.
