Easy Banana Pancakes

Hello again! It’s Alicia from The Baker Upstairs, and I’m excited to share one of my family’s favorite breakfast recipes with you today. My kids are totally obsessed with these banana pancakes, and request them almost every weekend for breakfast. They’re simple and quick to make, and use ingredients that we nearly always have in the house. They have a fantastic banana flavor, and are totally delicious with butter, syrup, and sliced bananas on top!


We love that these pancakes are so simple, but they really are so packed full of flavor that I think you’ll agree they’re the best and easiest banana pancakes. 😀

How to Make Banana Pancakes

The batter takes just a few minutes to mix up, and you don’t even need a mixer! One of the keys to pancake perfection (in my opinion) is to let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes before pouring it onto the hot griddle. I always find that my pancakes are lighter and fluffier if I let the batter rest a little before cooking. It also helps the batter thicken just a little bit, which makes it easier to pour.

Here are the banana pancake ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:

  • flour
  • sugar
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • bananas
  • milk
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • oil

These are pantry staples in our home, which is good for us because we should be able to make these pancakes any time!

Banana Egg Pancake

To make these, you’ll combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then, mash your bananas and add the other wet ingredients. Combine the two and mix well (a few clumps are fine!)

My griddle has a non-stick ceramic coating, so I don’t ever grease it, but if you’re using cookware that isn’t non-stick, a little butter or cooking spray will help the pancakes come off the pan cleanly. You’ll spoon about 1/4 cup of batter onto your griddle and cook for about 3-4 minutes (or until bubbles form on top), then flip and cooke for an additional 2-3 minutes.

We ate our banana pancakes drenched in maple syrup, but these pancakes would also be really yummy with peanut butter or Nutella on top, chocolate syrup or even buttermilk syrup. You really can’t go wrong here! These pancakes are so light and fluffy, and taste amazing!

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup oil


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until only small chunks remain. Add the milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil, and mix until combined.

  3. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined (a few small lumps are fine). Let sit 5 minutes.

  4. While the batter is resting, preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spoon the pancake batter onto the hot griddle by ¼ cup scoops. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles form over the surface of the pancake, then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

  5. Serve warm with sliced bananas, butter, and syrup.

Hi! I’m Alicia and I blog at The Baker Upstairs. I am in love with all things food! I love to bake bread, cupcakes, cookies… you name it! When I’m not baking, I am running after my two adorable little girls, working as an RN, knitting, reading, and trying to squeeze in time with my husband every day.
