Easy Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
These banana pancakes are fluffy and delicious, even with the whole wheat flour! I use whole wheat pastry flour to increase the fiber in my baked goods without making them too heavy. Try some whole wheat banana pancakes for breakfast! (Or lunch, or dinner!)
If you have bananas that are getting brown and mushy you can put them to good use in this recipe or in my Whole Wheat Banana Bread recipe! I hate to throw food away and both of these recipes are delicious and nutritious too.

Easy Recipe – Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
This recipe is easy to make, doesn’t require a mix or special ingredients, and you can have a hot breakfast on the table in about 20 minutes or so.
It’s easy to double or even triple this recipe if you have a big family or a brunch with guests. Try topping your pancakes with maple syrup, vanilla yogurt, or sliced bananas.
Here’s the recipe…
Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 2 tsps baking powder
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 2 tbsps vegetable oil
- 1 small banana mashed
- Preheat a greased griddle on medium heat.
- In a medium bowl, sift together dry ingredients.
- In a separate bowl, mash banana. Add milk, lightly beaten egg, and oil and combine thoroughly.
- Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir just until combined. There may be small lumps. That's fine, you don't want to overbeat batter or pancakes won't be light and fluffy.
- Pour about 1/4 cup pancake batter onto the griddle. When the bottom is browned, flip the pancake and brown the other side. Continue until all of the batter is used.
- Serve pancakes warm with syrup, fruit, applesauce, or jam.
Pancakes are a Favorite!
I like trying different recipes for breakfast and pancakes are one of my favorites. We ate a lot of pancakes when I was a kid and they are still one of my go-to breakfast foods. They also make a delicious lunch or dinner with some eggs and bacon on the side and fruit for a topping.

I know that many people like to buy pancake mix and I know it is a little bit easier than making them from scratch. However, it really doesn’t take much longer to make them from an old fashioned recipe and you have more control over what goes in your food. Plus, you’ll save money when you cook from scratch!
