Banana Nut Pancakes

These Banana Nut Pancakes are so delicious they will surely become a family favorite. Chopping the bananas instead of mashing them intensifies the banana flavor and prevents these pancakes from being mushy.

Banana Nut Pancakes


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ripe bananas, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, almonds


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients well: honey, beaten egg, buttermilk, applesauce, vanilla.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl with the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. It is okay if the batter is somewhat lumpy.
  4. Add the chopped bananas and nuts and gently mix in with the batter.
  5. Heat a non-stick griddle on low. Pour the batter onto the griddle in ¼ cup measurements. When the batter starts to bubble and the underside is golden brown, flip the pancakes and cook the other side until cooked through.
  6. Top with fresh fruit and your favorite syrup.


No buttermilk on hand? Just combine 1 tablespoon white vinegar with enough milk to make the one cup. Let sit for 5 minutes before adding the mixture to the recipe.
