Fluffy Banana Pancakes: A Kid-Friendly Family Favorite

Hey there, hat-wearers! It’s Ava from “All Them Hats” again, and I’ve got another fantastic, kid-friendly recipe to share with you – Fluffy Banana Pancakes! My little ones love bananas, and these pancakes are not only delicious but also a great way to use up those overripe bananas sitting on your counter. Let’s get started!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4-6 (depending on pancake size)


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter, cooled slightly
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • Cooking spray or additional butter for the pan
  • Optional toppings: maple syrup, sliced bananas, whipped cream, or nuts


  1. Combine dry ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, have your kids measure and combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and granulated sugar. Encourage them to mix well with a whisk or spoon.
  2. Mix wet ingredients: In a separate medium-sized bowl, let your children mash the ripe bananas with a fork or potato masher. Then, have them measure and add the milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk together until well combined.
  3. Combine wet and dry mixtures: Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and have your kids gently stir everything together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough pancakes.
  4. Prepare the pan: Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Coat the surface with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
  5. Cook the pancakes: Have your little ones help spoon the batter onto the hot skillet, using about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Allow the pancakes to cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges start to look set, about 2-3 minutes. Then, carefully flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. (Adult supervision is recommended for this step.)
  6. Serve and enjoy: Place cooked pancakes on a plate, and let your kids add their favorite toppings such as maple syrup, sliced bananas, whipped cream, or nuts. Dig in and enjoy your scrumptious Fluffy Banana Pancakes!

These Fluffy Banana Pancakes are not only a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen, but they also make for a tasty and filling breakfast that the whole family will love. Don’t forget to don your favorite hat while cooking and keep exploring new recipes with your little ones. Happy cooking!
