These delicious pancakes are bursting with bananas and have no butter or oil and very little sugar. And they’re still so tasty, you don’t even need syrup! (Pancakes just seem naked without syrup, so I always like a little drizzle.) My boys actually gobble them up without syrup and I’m always thankful to avoid the sticky mess and potential sugar high.

When we make these, I usually double the batch so we have leftovers to eat for a few days after. We can’t get enough of them! We’ll actually eat them for breakfast the morning I make them and sometimes again for lunch that very same day!

Leftovers?

Use leftover whole wheat banana pancakes from breakfast to make these yummy Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancake Sandwiches for lunch! Great for school lunch boxes too!

How to Serve and Store Leftover Banana Pancakes

Serve banana pancakes warm with maple syrup, if desired.

Store banana pancakes in an airtight plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to a week. Reheat pancakes in the toaster like you would when you toast bread or in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.

To freeze banana pancakes, let them cool completely and then place in an airtight container or plastic bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let defrost, loosely covered, at room temperature or reheat from frozen in the toaster like you would when toasting bread.
