Fluffy and sweet, banana flour pancakes are made in your blender for an easy and delicious breakfast! Just a handful of ingredients and less than 15 minutes required!
These banana flour pancakes are naturally gluten free and grain free since banana flour is made from just one ingredient, ground bananas!
What is banana flour?
If you haven’t heard of banana flour before, it’s a ground up flour, made from unripe, green bananas.
Using green bananas means the sugar content is lower, but still nutrient dense. It’s high in essential minerals and vitamins that you’d get from consuming fresh bananas, and of course, it’s packed with potassium!
It’s naturally vegan, gluten free, nut free, whole30 and paleo friendly.
Does banana flour taste like banana?
Since the flour is made from green bananas, there is only a mild banana flavour. So if you’re not a huge banana fan, not to worry! You’ll hardly taste it.
How to make banana flour pancakes
(This is a summary with step by step photos, full recipe measurements and instructions are in the recipe card below.)
Gather your ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need.
Preheat your griddle to medium heat.
Then add ALL the ingredients to your blender. Process until smooth and combined, scraping down the sides as needed. (photos 1-3)
Now, pouring directly from your blender spout, make pancakes that are approx. four inches in diameter. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until bubbles have formed on top and the edges appear set. (photo 4)
Then flip your pancakes and cook the other side for another 3-4 minutes, until cooked through. (photo 5)
Serve your banana flour pancakes with fresh berries, sliced bananas, a drizzle of peanut butter, maple syrup, or any of your favourite pancake toppings.
What to serve with them
Can I freeze them?
Yes! To freeze your pancakes, make sure they’re completely cooled to room temperature first.
Then store them in an airtight container or zip top bag in your freezer for up to 3 months.
Can I make these nut free?
Yes. Simply sub the peanut butter for a nut free butter like sunflower butter, instead.
- Scrape the sides of your blender. The peanut butter may get stuck to the sides when blending, so make sure everything gets nicely combined by scraping the sides down, as needed.
- Do not use high heat for these pancakes or the outside will get very dark and the middles, underdone. These cook best at medium heat.
