Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Need something to wake you up in the morning?  These will do it!  They are amazing!  I don't want to toot my own horn but the cinnamon in them is just a perfect match with the banana.   My daughter took a bite of these and immediately declared that they were amazing.  I tried a bite and I couldn't help but agree with her.  They are also pretty darn healthy, which is always a bonus!

Now that our day has started off right, hopefully the rest of the day follows the same.


1 Cup flour (you could use whole wheat)
1 ripe banana
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder (not the baking soda like pictured!!  Sorry!!!)
1 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbs. oil
1 Cup milk


First take your banana and mash it up.  Just take a fork and mush her right up!

In one bowl combine the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon.  Stir with a fork to combine.   In another bowl add the egg, mashed banana, oil, and milk.  Stir to combine. 
Combine the two bowls and stir to combine.   Start putting batter on the griddle.  Once it starts bubbling it's ready to flip.  Sorry about the blurry picture.  My hands aren't always steady...especially at 7:20 in the morning!
Once both sides are cooked, serve with syrup and sliced banana.  Yum!


  1. Mmmm. Banana and pancakes mixed into one. A perfect combination if ever there was one! Looks delicious!

  2. I wish I can have this for today's breakfast.
