If you even remotely like banana bread then you will absolutely love these banana pancakes. And if you don’t like bananas then you can substitute another fruit (like blueberries or raspberries), but I think the banana is the secret ingredient that adds the right amount of sweetness to balance out the whole-wheat flavor (be sure to use ripe bananas!). If you really want some berries in there consider adding them in addition to the bananas.
The other great thing about this banana pancake recipe is that the leftover pancakes freeze beautifully (and we usually do have some leftovers). Just layer them in-between pieces of wax paper inside a freezer-safe zip lock bag. Then one morning when you are racing around trying to get the kids out the door for school just pull a couple of pancakes out of the freezer, heat for a minute or two and voila! I am all about convenience, plus it doesn’t hurt that these are pretty healthy pancakes compared to some other options out there!
