Banana Pancakes With Spelt

"Organic spelt flour does not change the flavor of the pancake as much as whole wheat, but offers the benefit of additional fiber. With all the processed foods being offered to my kids daily, I thought it might be helpful to get something healthy into their diet as often as possible. No complaint from the kids here!"

  1. I followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious!
  2. This is a very good and dependable recipe. Follow recipe eactly using coconut oil and have not once been disappointed. I only had one banana this last time and they still turned out wonderful. Also, they are very good with some fresh blueberries sprinkled on top before flipping the pancakes.
  3. These are fantastic! Worked great in my waffle iron. Some recipes don't work as pancakes and waffles. The first time that I made them I used freshly pureed pumpkin instead of banana, some pumpkin pie spice, skipped the egg, and threw in a tbsp some freshly ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp of filtered water. I have used banana ever since though. Both ways work great! Did use maple syrup in them, and used coconut oil . I usually add vanilla and cinnamon. I omitted the salt. Thanks so much!
  4. I chose this recipe because it was all spelt, and not a blend with regular wheat flour. I had similar experience in that the inside wasn't cooked all that well, no matter how long I left it...still a little mushy inside. So that's probably down to the banana. I ended up spreading the pancakes out more with the help of the back of the ladel. At the end of the day, they were tasty. I used one egg replacer, cut back slightly on the baking powder and added a bit of baking soda based on some of the other comments. Thanks Cooks4_6!
  5. Epic fail. I don't know what I did wrong but I couldn't flip them, they just turned into a mushy mess in the pan. I ended up baking them.


  1. Perfect! I used sprouted spelt flour, 2 tsp b. powder and 1 tsp b. soda. I used sour raw milk for the lift factor and, man did it work!! The batter was as fluffy as mouse! I had to spread them out so they weren't so tall, but they cooked like a normal pancake. So nice to finally find a banana pancake recipe I love, thank you!
  2. Awesome pancakes, and I like too, just to be able to use only spelt flour. Instead of mashed banana, I used a 1/3 of a can of organic butternut squash ( or pumkin ) and a tsp of pumkin pie seasoning... very nice on this chilly rainy night!!


I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota and moved to Ohio in 1978. It was quite a culture shock going from the city to living next to the Amish. I spend most of my time cooking, cleaning and caring for my four kids. I have abandoned cookbooks and now cook from favorite, wilted recipe pages and the internet. I fell in love with my Italian family recipes (Scavo, Rotella, Scalzo, Micelli, Grande, Gigliotti) and my Mom's homecooked meals.
