Banana Pancakes

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)


  1. In a medium sized bowl, put the peeled bananas in and mash it with a fork until all the chunks are gone.
  2. Add the eggs and use a spatula to mix thoroughly.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add butter to a frying pan and heat it up.
  5. On low-medium heat, pour small quantities of the batter in the frying pan and fry both sides until well-done.
  6. Enjoy with maple syrup or lemon juice and sugar/honey.
