Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

whole wheat banana pancakes

I'll be honest, I am the first person to pick white over whole wheat in all food aspects. Although i do prefer multi-grain and I absolutely refuse to eat whole wheat pasta, I do love whole wheat pancakes. It gives it a nuttier flavor and goes so well with walnuts and bananas! I also use white, whole wheat flour which i think tastes more mild than regular whole wheat but still does not strip the flour of it's nutrients. So here it is!


2 cups white whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups of buttermilk

2 eggs

1 cup of vegetable oil

1 banana

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

maple syrup


  • Whisk together all dry ingredients in a bowl

  • In a separate bowl, stir buttermilk, eggs, vegetable oil together until smooth

  • Combine the dry and 'wet' ingredients until batter is smooth

  • Heat a pan over medium-low heat for 3 minutes (cast iron is best) and pour batter onto skillet

  • When bubbles start appearing in the batter, flip the pancake, usually after about a minute or two.

  • Once the other side is golden brown, remove from the pan and plate

  • Top with sliced banana and chopped walnuts and serve with a pad of butter and some real Vermont maple syrup!
