Whole wheat banana pancakes are my childhood favorite. If you are looking for some healthy pancake recipes, probably you have landed on the right page. This staple breakfast is made with whole wheat (not plain flour) which is a much healthier option as compared to plain flour (refined flour).
Using whole wheat gives the power of whole grain to the dish. Though the pancakes won’t be as fluffier as refined flour ones, more fiber-rich breakfast in the morning.
This is an eggless banana pancake recipe that you will just love. You can make with regular milk or with vegan milk as per your choice.
Ingredients for Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
There are no fancy ingredients. All are readily available ingredients of your pantry. So do need to do extra planning and shopping to make these pancakes.
No fermentation, no soaking, no preparation. This is an instant recipe. Altogether it takes less than 30 minutes to make the serving of 10 – 12 pancakes (servings for 4).
Basic ingredients used are wheat flour, ripe bananas, milk, vanilla extract, jaggery (or brown sugar).
For flavor add a pinch of salt and a pinch of cinnamon powder.
A pinch of baking powder makes the pancake fluffier and helps the pancake to rise.
Add milk of any type like regular mil, full-fat milk, vegan milk or even buttermilk or yogurt of your choice. Here I have taken vegan milk.
Toppings: Take some chopped bananas with peanut butter or maple syrup or some chocolate chip and banana slices.
I had a topping of chocolate syrup, sliced bananas, and choco chips. Add some nut butter or Nutella to your toppings.
It was a heavenly combo for me and for my 5 yr old kid. He thoroughly enjoyed this yummy chocolaty banana pancakes.
The choice of toppings can be vast in fact. You can add anything you love. Some chopped fruits, berries or dried fruits and whatnot.
