Banana Bread Pancakes

Two magical foods -- banana bread and pancakes -- mashed into one delicious breakfast (or brinner?).


cups Bisquick™ Complete pancake & waffle mix
cup milk
very ripe bananas, mashed
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground nutmeg
tablespoons light brown sugar
teaspoons vanilla
tablespoon unsalted butter


  • 1 Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl (a few remaining lumps are OK).
  • 2 Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon butter to coat bottom of skillet.
  • 3 Ladle slightly less than 1/4-cupfuls of batter onto skillet. Cook until edges are dry and bubbles form on top. Flip and cook other side until golden brown. Add more butter to skillet as needed to keep it coated.
  • 4 Top pancakes with chopped walnuts, banana slices, maple syrup and/or powdered sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.

Banana Bread Pancakes

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

What could be better than pancakes on a slow, sunny weekend morning?

Banana bread pancakes, that’s what!

OK, and maybe a cup of coffee, too.

I don’t know why the mash-up of these two magical foods didn’t occur to me sooner. I mean, it’s like the Laurel and Hardy of breakfast. The Bert and Ernie. The Thelma and Louise. The Beavis and – nevermind. Let’s just say these two were meant to be together.

Now kick off your shoes, turn on Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes” song and let’s make pancakes!

Ingredients for Banana Bread Pancakes

Grab your big ol’ box of Bisquick (you know you have one), some eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. And what else…BANANAS.

Combine ingredients in a bowl

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

Mash the bananas

Mash the ‘nanners and add them to the batter.

Lumpy batter is okay

It’s OK if the batter is a little lumpy – we’re striving for deliciousness here, people, not perfection!

Cooking pancakes

Pour the batter in quarter cupfuls onto a hot buttered skillet and cook until little bubbles form on top. Flip and cook until the other side is a beauteous golden brown.

Close up of Banana Bread Pancakes

Now make a mountainous stack of pancakes (you weren’t planning to share these, were you?), top it with chopped walnuts, banana slices, maple syrup and powdered sugar if desired (a.k.a. JUST DO IT. No regrets!). Take a moment to gaze at your masterpiece…

Now, dig in. Bweafah nebah taybed woh woo (sorry, my mouth is full of pancakes).
