As these pancakes contain Bananas, they have higher nutritional value compared to normal pancakes. Bananas are a great source of dietary fibre, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Potassium. They improve your digestion and keep you energetic and feeling full of longer. Hence, this healthy Banana Pancake recipe is not just good for breakfast but also as a quick brunch option.

Not to mention that Banana Pancakes taste better than normal pancakes as they have loads of Banana flavour incorporated in them.


These delicious Banana and Egg Pancakes are perfect to make and serve on Pancake Day / Shrove Tuesday or pack in tiffin for kids as well as adults.

Making Banana Pancakes Fluffy

Eggs along with Baking Powder and Baking Soda help make these simple Banana Pancakes fluffy.


Sifting the dry ingredients before combining them with the wet ingredients will help remove any lumps in the dry ingredients, incorporate them well with each other as well as with wet ingredients and add in some air to help make these Banana Egg Pancakes fluffier.

Also, whisking all wet ingredients well and making sure all sugar has melted will assist in incorporating more air and making these Banana and Cinnamon Pancakes fluffy.


Couple of points to remember to get spongy homemade pancakes is after adding dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix gently with a spatula till everything has just combined. DO NOT Overmix. And start making pancakes immediately after mixing.


Also, do not spread the batter on the pan or press the pancake from top after flipping. Let the batter spread by itself; it will attain a thick circular shape and rise in thickness after flipping.

Adding a Glam to Banana Pancakes

This soft, spongy Banana Egg Pancake recipe tastes delish on its own, but when you drizzle these pancakes with some honey or maple syrup, they taste extra special.


When serving to kids you can spread some peanut butter, Nutella or Chocolate spread on top.

To make them even more luxurious, try adding some toasted walnut pieces on top which add some crunch to the soft, spongy texture.

You can also add some sliced bananas, chocolate chips, some chopped mixed nuts or berries on top to make them even more lavish when serving on special occasions or to someone special.


So, when you have lots of overripe bananas lying around in the house, try making these scrumptious Banana Walnut Pancakes from scratch for breakfast or snacks.
