Whether the banana pancakes are plain or with walnuts and chocolate chips…

I’m definitely more of a savoury breakfast person, but every once in a while I get a sweet craving. These banana pancakes are the perfect option, especially if you have some ripe bananas on hand. Whether you have them plain or with walnuts and chocolate chips, they are super delicious and simple to make with staples you already have in your kitchen.

Pancakes are easy to make, but it’s all about knowing when to flip them. Once you start seeing little air bubbles, that’s when you know it’s time! Check out the photo below as an example.

Servings 8 pancakes


  • Large pan
  • Medium bowl
  • Whisk


  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 medium eggs beaten
  • 1 cup milk your preferred type, I used almond milk
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil plus a little extra for the pan
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 handful crushed walnuts
  • 1 handful chocolate chips


  • Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat your pan on medium-high heat. Add the extra vegetable oil, about 2 tbsp, and wait until hot. Use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter into the pan. Individually place crushed walnuts and chocolate chips onto the pancakes (optional). You'll know when to flip your pancakes when you start to see air bubbles in the batter, approximately after 4 minutes. Once flipped, cook an additional 2 minutes and serve.
