Looking for a delightful breakfast treat that’s both healthy and indulgent? Look no further than these fluffy banana pancakes! Made with just a few simple ingredients, these pancakes are perfect for a leisurely weekend brunch or a quick weekday breakfast. Let’s dive into the recipe and get cooking!

A list of Ingredients for Banana Pancakes:

  • 2 very ripe bananas (180 g)
  • 180 g plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 130 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Oil for cooking

Instructions:

  1. Begin by mashing the bananas using a fork in a large bowl.
  2. Add the plain yogurt and melted butter to the bowl, then stir until well combined.
  3. Crack in the large egg, add the vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
  4. Next, add the all-purpose flour to the bowl, then evenly sprinkle the baking powder on top. Stir until just combined, being careful not to over-mix. It’s okay if there are a few little lumps in the batter. The consistency should be rather thick.
  5. Heat a large frying pan or griddle over medium heat and lightly coat it with oil.
  6. Once the pan is hot, add approximately 3 tablespoons of the batter for each pancake to the pan. Use a spoon to spread the thick batter into rounds – they will not spread any further on their own.
  7. Allow the pancakes to cook until they slightly puff up and you see a few bubbles forming on the surface. Use a spatula to check from time to time and make sure the pancakes do not brown too much on the bottom.
  8. Once ready, carefully flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown on both sides.
  9. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding a little oil to the pan between batches to prevent sticking.

And….Enjoy!
