Mini Banana Pancakes – The Pancake Hack You Need

Mini banana pancakes

Imagine the aroma of sweet, ripe bananas covered in your favourite pancake batter, sizzling in a pan, turning into the most delicious and cute mini banana pancakes. This recipe is for all pancake lovers, because these are not your ordinary pancakes, they’re a simple and delicious twist on the breakfast classic. We hope you’re ready to dig in!

This isn’t just a fun twist, it also makes your pancakes healthier

What makes these mini banana pancakes even better is that they offer a healthier twist on the traditional recipe. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a classic pancake, this recipe contains more nutrients thanks to using more banana, and less dough. Here’s the lineup of ingredients and some healthier substitutes:

  • Banana Slices: Naturally sweet and packed with potassium, bananas quite literally build the core of this recipe
  • Classic Pancake Dough: For the batter, we use a mix of flour, milk, eggs, baking powder and a hint of sugar and vanilla extract. To make it even healthier, you can opt for whole wheat flour, almond milk, a flax egg substitute or a natural sweetener without sacrificing the delectable taste.
  • Coconut Oil: Frying your pancakes in coconut oil adds a delicious, sweet flavour. However, you can choose other healthy oils like olive oil or non-stick cooking spray for a lower-calorie option.

Servings: 2 servings


  • 2 bananas, peeled and cut into ½ cm (¼ inch) slices
  • 70 g flour (½ cup)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 pack baking powder (15 g)
  • 70 ml milk (2.5 oz)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • coconut oil to fry


  • Prepare the dough: Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, then add milk, an egg and vanilla extract and whisk until fully combined. You want to have a thicker dough that is not too liquid to make sure the banana gets fully coated.
  • Bake the mini banana pancakes: Add 1 tsp of coconut oil in your pan and heat it to low to medium heat. Now dip one banana slice at a time in your dough to fully coat it, then transfer into the pan. Flip it over when the edges are starting to brown. Repeat for all banana slices, and occasionally add more coconut oil if the pan is dry.
