Banana Flax Pancakes


We don’t normally do this, but in celebration of National Pancake Day, please listen to this song while you read this post.

Ahhh, mood music. For me, Saturday mornings are all about snuggling, staying in your pjs, and cooking a big ‘ole breakfast. Pancakes are my number one favorite breakfast food. I do love eggs, but pancakes are much better leftover….or for an afternoon snack when the kids aren’t looking (confessions). But what about hurried weekday mornings? Can you still enjoy fruity, fluffy pancakes on a Wednesday? Why yes, you can! If you aren’t too hurried you can mix up a fresh batch from our Homemade Pancake Mix. Or make them on your cooking day, so that you and your family can still eat a great meal even if you hit the snooze. If a certain aunt whose name begins with “J” can serve up tasty pancakes from the freezer, then why can’t you? And trust me, yours will be much cheaper and much healthier.

“You gotta wake up slow”….even on the weekdays sometimes. C’mon, “pretend like it’s the weekend.”

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together ingredients until combined, but don’t over mix. Heat a griddle or large non-stick pan (medium high heat). Measure out pancakes using a quarter cup and cook until bubbling and edges are firm. Flip and cook until firm all the way through. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

Freezing Directions:

Cool pancakes completely. Store in freezer bags until cooking day. To serve: Thaw and reheat in toaster oven or microwave. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

Servings: 10-12 pancakes

    Made these today! I didn’t use all of the milk. You can also use ground flax seed as an egg substitute if you’re out of eggs. The recipe was on my bag of flax seed – 3 T water with 1 T ground flax seed and let it sit for a few minutes.

    Thanks Kim. This will be great on these lovely fall weekends. Since my husband doesn’t like bananas, I will add other fruit and of course vanilla and cinnamon!

    I cannot use coconut oil as I have adverse reactions to it (I think it is an allergy). What can I use as a replacement?

    These are great as a quick snack. Just put a tsp of peanut butter on them with some bananas. OMG!
