Banana Pancakes Recipe

The secret to making these pancakes deliciously sweet, with no added sugar, is to use overly ripe bananas. In fact, the more overripe the banana, the sweeter the pancake will be.

When the skin of bananas start to generously speckle with brown, that’s my queue to peel and freeze them for later use. When I have enough frozen banana’s, a recipe such as this is the perfect way to use up old bananas.

As the bananas defrost, the liquid will separate from the frozen banana. Be sure to include the liquid when mashing up the bananas for this recipe.

Tips: If you have an additional frying pan, you can use it to help cook more banana pancakes in less time. I have one large frying pan and one smaller frying pan. Together I can cook 8 pancakes at once.
