Raise your hand if you love pancakes!! If you were in my house right now you’d see my 2 year old with 2 hands high in the air. He is constantly asking for pancakes for breakfast and as much as I also love pancakes I didn’t think it was a great idea to be giving him my classic Pancakes From Scratch every morning. So I set out for super easy and healthy pancakes that he could still love. I ended up creating these delicious Mini Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes (sprinkles “optional”).
These pancakes are super simple with only 4 ingredients, okay 5 if you include the sprinkles (my sons addition to the recipe). All you need is a banana, eggs, whole wheat flour, and milk, so simple right.
In my quest to make healthier pancakes I had a few things in mind. The first was including whole wheat flour, so many of the ‘healthy’ pancakes out there included either oats or gluten free flours. I wanted to include whole grains but keep a beautiful pancake texture and whole wheat flour covers both of those things!
Once I figured out my base the rest was easy. Bananas, probably the world’s best baking fruit. Eggs for lift and milk because the batter would be too thick otherwise.
All blended together for a super smooth batter.
And then my son Archie piped in that we should add sprinkles. Okay kid twist my arm, in went the sprinkles. 🙂
I opted to make these whole wheat banana pancakes mini (or silver dollar as some call it). You can make them any size you want really but I chose mini because they fit so nicely in my toddlers cute little hands.
Lastly these can be kept in the fridge or freezer for a later date. After all this recipe makes about 22 mini pancakes, so half of them go into our mouths and the rest go into the fridge for the next morning (or snack later that day).
