Banana pancakes are a great option for those looking to start their day with a delicious and nutritious breakfast.

And, for those watching their carbohydrate intake, a few simple ingredients can be used to make low-carb banana pancakes. First, replace all-purpose flour with almond flour

Second, use ripe bananas instead of syrup or sugar to sweeten the pancakes. Ripe bananas are not only sweeter than unripe bananas, but they also contain more fiber.

They should take about 15 minutes to make from start to finish. All you need is a bowl, a whisk, a pan, and a spatula. First, make the batter by whisking together the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Then add the wet ingredients and mix until everything is well combined.

Yes, you can make these pancakes ahead of time! Just cook them as directed, then store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They’ll stay fresh for up to 4 days. Then, when you’re ready to eat them, just reheat them in the microwave or on the stove.

Can I add or replace some ingredients?

Yes, a few ingredients can be added or replaced in this recipe. For example, you could try adding chocolate chips, blueberries, or nuts. You could also replace the milk with coconut milk and the butter with coconut oil.

Do I need to use a specific type of pan?

Tips and tricks for a better pancakes recipe

Bananas for the pancakes

First of all, use a non-stick pan to cook your pancakes so that you don’t need to use as much oil or butter. These pancakes are best cooked in a non-stick skillet, but you can use any type of skillet.

  • Ensure the pan is hot before cooking the pancakes.
  • Use a spoon or measuring cup to pour the batter onto the pan so that all the pancakes are the same size.
  • Use a spatula to flip the pancakes over when they are golden brown on one side.
  • If you find that your pancakes are too thick, add a little more milk to the batter. If they are too thin, add a little more flour.
  • If you are following a strict low-carb diet, you can omit the banana and replace it with 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce.
  • For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free flour instead of almond flour.
  • Add some protein to your pancakes by adding a scoop of protein powder to the batter.
  • You can also use whole wheat flour and oat flour for a healthier pancake.
  • If you are not following a low-carb diet, you can use regular flour instead of almond flour.
  • If dairy-free, you can use any type of milk in place of the milk of choice. You can also use dairy-free butter.
  • If you don’t have vanilla extract, you can omit it or substitute it with another flavoring, such as almond extract.
  • If you don’t have a large banana, you can use two smaller bananas.
  • Store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Reheat frozen pancakes in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes.
  • Make a double batch of pancakes and freeze half of them for a quick and easy breakfast on busy mornings.

If you don’t have baking soda, you can use one teaspoon of baking powder.

If you’re making pancakes for a large crowd, use a griddle for cooking multiple pancakes at once.

Get creative with the shape of your pancakes! First, use cookie cutters to cut them into fun shapes. Next, make mini pancakes for a fun and easy breakfast or snack. Then, simply use a mini muffin tin for cooking them in.
