Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

whole wheat banana pancakes

I’m quite the pancake addict. Fluffy pancakes stacked neatly on a plate with melted butter that’s drowning in maple syrup, yum! I’d have that for breakfast lunch and dinner if I could. 

I’ve tried many pancake recipes; buttermilk, blueberry, oatmeal, but I think these whole wheat banana pancakes beat them all. It’s supper moist and full of flavor, and the best part is, they’re good for you. I’d say pair it with coffee and you have yourself a complete wholesome breakfast. :)

I would recommend using aluminum free baking powder, I’ve made these using aluminum baking powder and the taste was slightly metallic. See post here on why its best to use aluminum-free baking powder.

This is also a great way to use up that last overripe banana that never seems to get eaten. We always seem to have that problem. :/
