  • Reduced fat butter for frying

  • 2 ripe medium bananas, peeled and mashed

  • 3 tbs brown sugar

  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour

  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-fat milk

  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked


  • To make the pancake batter, sift the flour into a medium bowl and make a well in the centre.

  • Whisk together the milk, egg and sugar in a jug.

  • Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour, whisking constantly, until batter is smooth and combined.

  • Add the mashed banana to the batter and stir until combined.

  • Brush a large non-stick frying pan with a scoop of butter and heat over medium-high heat.

  • Pour some of the banana pancake recipe batter into the pan.

  • Cook until bubbles appear through the pancakes.

  • Carefully turn the banana pancakes and cook for a further 1 minute or until golden brown and cooked through.

  • Transfer the banana pancakes to a heatproof plate and cover loosely with foil. Place in preheated oven to keep warm. Repeat, with the remaining batter, greasing and reheating pan between batches.

# 1 - Serve with whipped cream, raspberries, blueberrys and diced banana.
# 2 – Macadamian nut pancakes are a crunchy alternative. Simply finely dice (nearly shaved) the macadamia nuts and mix into the batter prior to cooking.

Warning, kids love this banana pancakes recipe but you don't want them to cover the banana pancakes with golden or maple syrup. These syrups are fully of sugar, are fattening and just plain un-healthy.A breakfast of this banana pancakes recipe when served with fresh fruit (think berries) and cream will be plenty sweet enough, the fruit is even good for your kids, especially if you can't get your kids eating fruit at other times.
