Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

I love it when I find recipes that are naturally sweetened. Treats like these cupcakes or these energy bars taste great, and I don’t feel guilty. And these Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes? I absolutely love them.

I started making these over a year ago during our sugar fast. They continue to be a favorite of mine. They’re like banana bread in pancake form. They are delicious with maple syrup and spicy bacon on the side.

We make pancakes at least weekly, so we have some experience. Since I bought an electric griddle it’s so easy to make pancakes quickly to serve a crowd. FishPapa totally spoils our kids when he’s at the helm as he brushed each pancakes with melted butter before stacking them in piping hot stacks.

Yeah, Pancake Saturday at our house is pretty sweet. Without all the extra sugar.

Now, wouldn’t you want to wake up on a weekend morning to this? Uh, huh, I thought so! And you can. This recipe is super easy.

This recipe calls for whole-wheat pastry flour. Bob’s Red Mill is the easiest brand to find. You can buy it off Amazon or at your local health food store. If you can’t find it, don’t sweat it. Unbleached all-purpose flour works just fine, just without the whole grain element to it.

The bananas and cinnamon combine to give this recipe just enough sweetness. I love it!

  1. These look great! I struggle with pancakes because of all the carbs and sugar (even though I use wholewheat and real maple syrup). It seems to affect me a lot more than most people. The recipe I usually use has 2-3 tbsp of sugar in it; it’ll be nice to try this one instead.

    These really look good. I’ve never had whole wheat pancakes before and I just happen to have some wheat flour in the pantry and some ripe bananas in the freezer. I do have a freezer bag full of pancakes that I made for the freezer a few weeks ago. When we’re done with them, which should be in a week or two, I will definitely try yours. I already printed out your recipe. That reminds me: I bought ground turkey yesterday and I need to go and make some turkey breakfast sausage with it right now. That will go good with the pancakes.

    • You’re turning into a freezer cook after all. 😉

        Well, I made a few dinner freezer meals a few weeks ago, including your Lawnmower Taco and I have to admit that I was really happy I had them on a couple of days where I was busy and didn’t have the time to cook or on days where I just needed a break from the kitchen. This week we are going to try your Lawnmower Taco. I just have to wait till Thursday because Hubby will be traveling to Toronto for a few days for his new job and our daughter will be returning today from California. She’s been on a four day holiday with her friends in the Los Angeles area. So I want to wait till everyone is home for that. I will let you know. 🙂
