Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes recipe that is quick and easy to make and is a great way to use up overripe bananas.

My youngest (Miss 9) went on her first school camp this week.  I was so nervous about her going, being my baby and all. However I was also worried about her being cold, did I pack her enough clothes and blankets? I woke really early on Wednesday morning as I couldn’t sleep, I had a bowl full of overripe bananas so I thought I’d make her some yummy banana pancakes before she goes off to camp.  Usually I would never have the time or desire to make pancakes on a school morning, I was just up early worried about her going away for 2 nights… needless to say she came home yesterday happy and with so many stories.

These pancakes were easy to make, light, fluffy and delicious.

A new product now available in my shop, is the Oxo Squeeze and Pour cups, they work so well, and are a mess-free way to add batter to a frying pan.

Your banana pancakes look delicious! I’m sure they would only last two minutes with my munchkins 🙂 Thankyou for the great recipe…I hope your daughter enjoys her school camp 🙂 I feel for you ~ it’s so tough when they get to this age and start venturing further from home! I never slept well when my children went to camp either..

Thank you Chantell, she had a great time. She took a little locket with her which I filled with loads and loads of kisses… apparently this helped her every night 😉

Thanks for the yummy pancake recipe! My 3 year old daughter saw your photo on my email and insisted we make them for breakfast. We did and thoroughly enjoyed them. I’m sure they’ll be a family favourite.

My 2 year old loves helping in the kitchen and wanted to bake something this morning. I’ve recent purchased a bellini and had rotten bananas so this recipe was perfect! Especially since it doesn’t have any sugar unlike the banana pancake recipes I usually use. Needless to say my daughter enjoyed helping make and eat them. Thanks for sharing!
