A Recipezaar 2005 adoptee. The original stated that these are good with blueberry sauce. I liked these with real maple syrup, myself. It was stated that the recipe came from a source called "Crazy Plates". *UPDATE* I have upped the amount of banana from 1/2 c. to 3/4-1 cup, due to the helpful reviews.
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 3⁄4 cups low-fat buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4-1 cup mashed ripe banana (About 2 lg.)
- Combine both flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, egg, honey, mashed banana, and vanilla.
- Add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
- Spray a large skillet or electric griddle with nonstick spray, or brush with butter.
- Heat over medium heat.
- For each pancake, drop 1/2 cup batter onto skillet, spreading it out to make a 4-inch circle.
- Cook until it is lightly browned underneath and bubbles are starting to pop on top. (Check often, as the sugar in these may cause them to burn more quickly; adjust the heat as needed.).
- Turn over and cook other side until lightly browned.
- Serve immediately.
- Leftover pancakes can be frozen and reheated in the microwave for quick weekday breakfasts.
I made these exactly as directed, except I used 1 T butter instead of 2 T of the reduced fat product. They are excellent and just as good as my previous favorite which is loaded with fat and sugar. They are easy to make and use commonly available ingredients.
These are absolutely delicious and healthy & they’ll be a frequent part of my daily breakfast routine. I took your advice and am freezing them individually and they’ve been fantastic to nuke for a quick breakfast or dessert. I’ve topped them with yogurt or applesauce, but the best by far is with your easy blueberry sauce. I made them exactly according to the recipe, it’s a thick batter & they come out with a nice thickness to them-I might add some milk if I ever want thinner ones. Yummy!
These were delicious. I used two bananas, which was probably more than 1/2 cup. I also left out the butter and used egg white and they were still great. I measured these out as directed and it made 7 pancakes for me. I served these with low fat vanilla yoghurt, chopped strawberries and honey.
