These banana almond pancakes are perfect for weekend breakfasts! Forget about banana bread – use your overripe bananas to make this easy pancake recipe.
Saturday mornings are made better with pancakes. So are Sunday mornings. Actually, EVERY morning is made better with pancakes.
When I was a kid, my stepmom made the best pancakes. I still can’t figure out what she did to make them so different but I could eat about a trillion of them. I loved our pancake breakfasts.
Those perfect pancakes had crispy edges – maybe it was butter? Maybe it was A LOT of butter.
I have asked her a few times but she doesn’t seem to remember what she did. So I dream about those pancakes and make my own kind of pancake instead.
Banana Almond Pancakes
To make these pancakes, grab a medium bowl and add all of your dry ingredients into it. Whisk them together really well so that you add air and eliminate any bumps.
Then use a spoon to make a well in the center and add all of your wet ingredients. Stir everything together (I usually grab my favorite wooden spoon for this) until combined and then stir the mashed bananas and almonds into the batter.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to use a boxed pancake mix, follow the instructions on the back of the box and add in the bananas and almonds after combining the dry and wet ingredients.
Once you have your batter ready, it’s time to start making pancakes.
This is my favorite part.
Make sure your pan/griddle is piping hot before ladling your first pancake on to it. Also, make sure it is well-greased first.
You should flip when bubbles pop and form holes that stay open on the surface of the pancake. Be patient; you will have a better pancake if you can wait.
After you have your stack of pancakes cooked, top them with fresh banana slices, almond slivers and a whole lot of syrup. Syrup for days is my breakfast motto.
This recipe makes 12 pancakes and is easy to double if you are cooking for a big group. Enjoy!
