Boot's Banana Pancakes

Makes 8 to 10 servings

Boot's Banana Pancakes



  • 2 ripe medium bananas
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Let's make it! ¡Vámanos!

(Kid's Help part in italics)

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mash 2 bananas with a fork until smooth.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, combine milk, eggs, canola oil, and mashed banana. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.

3. Heat a lightly greased griddle or a large heavy skillet on medium heat until a few drops of water dance across the surface. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle.

4. Cook until surface is bubbly and edges are slightly dry; turn and cook until pancakes are golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Keep pancakes warm in oven in a loosely covered ovenproof dish while cooking remaining pancakes.

5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat sliced banana and maple syrup for 1 to 2 minutes until heated through and banana begins to soften. Serve maple-banana mixture over pancakes.
