How to Make Banana Pancakes

  1. Use a fork to mash the bananas into a chunky consistency and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the wets ingredients: milk, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon juice,and melted butte, followed by the mashed banana. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Then go ahead to combine all the dry ingredients – whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt and make a well in the center.

  5. So let the cooking starts  – Heat a cooking pan or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil, scoop the batter into the pan ( I normally use ice cream scooper for esy portioning of the batter. It makes it easy and less messy) then sautee for about 2 minutes per side. If they’re getting brown quickly, reduce the heat.
  6. Once you see bubbles rise to the top and start to pop, they are ready to flip.
  7. Serve as desired, you might want to serve with syrup, nuts, and some fresh berries.
