How to make the Best Banana Pancakes

Mix together baking mix, eggs, and milk with a whisk or fork until just blended.

Mash one of the bananas (reserve the other to slice) and gently fold it into the pancake mixture. There may be some small lumps.

Slice the second banana into round slices and set aside for garnish.

Once the pancake mixture starts to bubble, it’s ready to cook.

Depending on the size of pancakes you prefer, use 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter for each banana pancake. Add pancake batter to the griddle.

Cook pancakes for about 1-2 minutes, until there are bubbles across the top of the pancakes and the edges are dry. Using a pancake turner, turn and cook the other side until the pancake is golden brown.

Keep the bananas warm until they are all ready to serve.

Top with sliced bananas and serve hot with butter and warmed maple syrup or honey. Garnish with chopped walnuts or pecans, if desired.

Frequenty Asked Questions

Can I make pancakes without Bisquick?

You can easily substitute the Bisquick in this recipe by making your own homemade baking mix with this easy recipe: How to Make Homemade Bisquick.

Should you use butter or oil for pancakes?

I recommend using butter for the absolute best taste. However, if you need to use canola oil or another type of oil for dietary concerns, then use that. I do not recommend using margarine as the ingredients in it can vary between brands and provide inconsistent results.

Why are my banana pancakes mushy?

If your banana pancakes are mushy then they are likely undercooked. Be sure to wait to see bubbles on the top of the batter, and look for drying edges before turning the pancake. Pancakes should be golden brown when fully cooked.

What is the secret to great pancakes?

The secrets to great pancakes are to avoid overmixing the pancake batter, to wait until the batter bubbles before pouring it onto the griddle, to let the pancake rise and bubble before turning, and to just turn the pancake once when cooking. These secret tips will give you the best pancakes ever.

Cooled pancakes can be stored in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
