What you will need
– 1 and 1/2 ripe bananas, mashed
– 1 and 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon of baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt
– 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
– 1/4 cup of milk
– 2 tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt
– 1 tablespoon of honey
– 1 large egg
– 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– Butter or cooking spray for greasing the pan
1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, milk, yogurt, honey, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth.
3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix as this can make the pancakes tough.
4. Heat a non-stick pan or a griddle over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, melt some butter or spray with cooking spray.
5. Using a spoon or a ladle, drop the batter onto the pan, making sure to leave some space between each pancake. The size of the pancake will depend on your preference.
6. Cook the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
7. Once the pancakes are done, serve them immediately with your favorite toppings. Some good ideas include sliced bananas, drizzled honey, maple syrup, crushed nuts, or whipped cream.
These pancakes are not only delicious, but they are also healthy. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, vitamin C, and dietary fiber. By using Greek yogurt and honey as the sweeteners, you can reduce the amount of processed sugar in your diet. Additionally, the use of all-purpose flour, instead of white flour or cake flour, gives you some added fiber and nutrients.
