It’s very common to make banana bread with overripe bananas or simply throw them away, but what about banana pancakes? I prefer my bananas more on the unripe side or slightly ripe side, but I also don’t like throwing food away (thanks for the life lessons mother). If you’re like me and you are wondering what else to do with your overripe bananas, here’s a simple recipe I came up with and I hope it works for you too! They are filling and delicious.
P.S. I don’t add sugar to my pancake batter. I enjoy maple syrup with my pancakes sometimes, especially if they are fluffier, but most times, I enjoy my pancakes with fresh lemon juice and sugar or in this case honey – in the spirit of avoiding processed cane sugar.
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 salt
- Maple syrup or lemon & sugar (to your taste)
- In a medium sized bowl, put the peeled bananas in and mash it with a fork until all the chunks are gone.
- Add the eggs and use a spatula to mix thoroughly.
- Add flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
- Add butter to a frying pan and heat it up.
- On low-medium heat, pour small quantities of the batter in the frying pan and fry both sides until well-done.
- Enjoy with maple syrup or lemon juice and sugar/honey.
