It’s like a Jack Johnson banana pancakes love-in most Sundays in this house [if you do not get the reference then you’re far too young!]
At the end of the week, we always have a couple of bananas that have gone well past the point of eating. I will only eat bananas when they don’t taste too banana-y [doesn’t make sense, I know!]. We never bin the black ones, instead they are either saved for banana bread/muffins [read my latest banana bread recipe here], smoothies, or we use them for banana pancakes.
I can guarantee that if you’ve got kids, they will love them! We bought a funky animal pan from Aldi when they were on sale, which means that an added element of fun is achieved – Rufus will eat the dinosaur ones and Cecily will eat the cat and llama ones. God forbid you take any of those animal shapes!
Serve with berries or fruit, yoghurt and maple syrup. If we’re feeling fancy, then smoked streaky bacon may make its way onto the plate too!
This recipe could easily be adapted to become vegan with the inclusion of plant based yoghurt and milk alternatives. We have also adapted the recipe to become gluten free. My sisters are both gluten intolerant so we use the gluten free self raising flour instead – all that may be needed is some extra milk to reach the desired consistency.
