Fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, and delicately flavored with bananas and vanilla -- these are truly phenomenal banana pancakes. Learn how to make banana pancakes that the whole family will ask for again and again. Though you may already have a go-to pancake recipe, these banana pancakes may just be your new everything.
In a medium bowl stir together whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl combine egg, milk, mashed banana, and 1 tablespoon of the syrup. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
Coat a nonstick griddle or heavy skillet with cooking spray; heat griddle over medium heat. For each banana pancake, pour cup of the batter onto hot griddle; spread if necessary. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden. Turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. To dress them up and hint at what's inside, top with fresh sliced bananas and a generous dusting of powdered sugar.
