Banana Pancakes in the Blender

No, it’s not going to snow…I know, 2 posts in less than 24 hours…things have been crazy around here and so I haven’t been able to post for a few days, so I am making up for it now…crazy me has a turkey in the oven at midnight, so I decided to share a recipe while I wait…

I came across a recipe for banana pancakes on one Saturday morning when I had a few over ripe bananas and didn’t know what to do with them.  Well, I mean, I know I could have made bread or muffins, but I mean I wanted to do something different from the old standby.  I modified this recipe when the first attempt resulted in a warm, mushy, blob of banana in the middle of a pancake.  Gross.  It was at this moment, that I came up with the brilliant idea 😉 of using the blender to mix up the batter.  This worked out great.  No mushy, blobs of banana.  The batter comes out nice and smooth.  One thing you should know is this batter is not as thick as a normal pancake batter and it results in thinner pancakes.

I served them up with sliced banana and sprinkled a few mini chocolate chips on top.  You could also add some chopped walnuts or pecans if you please.

Banana Pancakes in the Blender


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 RIPE bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

In a blender add all the “Wet” ingredients.
Blend well (until there are no lumps of banana)
Add dry ingredients and, again, blend well.
Fire up your griddle or heat up your frying pan.
Pour directly from the pitcher to the pan/griddle. (This is great because there is little to no mess!)

***This will make about 20 average size pancakes.

I am married to the greatest man, Brad, who also happens to be the "bestest" friend ever! He loves that my hobby is food, because, well, he loves food! He encourages me and helps me out in the kitchen from time to time. Baking has become a new passion for me. It seems that I make pretty good pies. I like to make cookies as well. I tried my hand at cupcakes, but I don't have the patience to play the waiting game. I have always loved to cook. My Memom is my main influence. I had the pleasure of living with her on 2 separate occasions and learned a lot by just watching and helping. She was also the kind of cook who could open the pantry and throw together something pretty quick. I was so glad that I picked up on that skill. Some of my better meals have been the ones that I just "threw together" what I could scrounge up in the pantry and fridge. Italian cuisine is my first love, growing up in an Italian family and being from New Jersey. I also have dabbled a little in Asian cooking. I am getting pretty good at pork fried rice. My husband grew up in the south, for the most part, so I have been trying my hand at things like chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy, and the likes. Living in Texas has opened doors into Mexican cuisine, but I think I will leave the tortilla making to the experts. I love to get new recipes and to share new recipes that I have discovered. That is why I wanted to start this blog! I hope to share my experience with others who also love to cook! I hope that you enjoy what you read and keep coming back!

  1. If you were to do the wet ingredients in the blender and then add the dry,, not overmixing let it sit for a while to absorb, they would probably rise beautifully!
