Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20 4-inch pancakes
  • 3 Cups mashed bananas (about 3 medium)
  • 3 Cups pancake mix
  • ½ Cup butter flavored syrup
  • 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2¼ Cups water
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  1. Mix mashed up bananas, syrup, vanilla, water, and pancake mix in a bowl. Heat pan or skillet to medium heat or 350 F.
  2. Spray non-stick cooking spray onto surface of pan or griddle. Once the pan is hot (test by dropping a drop of water on the pan—it should make a hissing sound and evaporate quickly), pour ¼-1/2 Cup of batter on the pan. Because of the banana, these pancakes will be heavier and a little more difficult to flip than a normal one. If the side faced down is cooked to a light brown and most of the air bubbles are popped before you try to flip it AND you get a good scoop underneath the pancake with a spatula, they will flip just fine. Cook the other side until light brown or cooked through as well.
  3. Top with one or more of the following: bananas, honey, syrup, peanut butter, Nutella, butter, jelly, marshmallow creme, fresh fruit, whipping cream, ice cream, etc.
