One of the sweet pancakes liked by us is these healthy banana pancakes. i make them similar to the Punjabi puda or whole wheat pancakes. These are soft and light pancakes and tastes really good. You can make them for breakfast or as a snack or even pack them in your kid’s tiffin box as they stay soft even after cooling. you can also check these similar recipes of:

There is not much work to do to make these healthy pancakes and hence they can be made in a jiffy. All you need are some ripe bananas, whole wheat flour (chapati atta) and jaggery/sugar. Even over ripe bananas work very well.

I flavor the pancakes with some fennel seeds. But you can add your choice of flavoring ingredients like cinnamon powder or vanilla extract or cardamom powder.

In the pancakes you can add baking soda. I have not added baking soda as there is no need, since the pancakes are light and soft. If you are on a sugar free diet, you can skip adding jaggery and just make the pancakes with bananas.

Serve these vegan banana pancakes plain or you can drizzle some maple syrup or caramel syrup. You can also drizzle some honey if you want, but pour honey on lukewarm pancakes and not on the hot ones.

How to make banana pancake

1. Peel 3 medium to large bananas (285 grams) and place them in a mixing bowl or pan.

2. Slice them first and then mash with a masher. For overripe bananas, you can directly mash with a veggie masher.

3. Now add 3 tablespoons jaggery powder. You can add the amount of jaggery as per the sweetness of the bananas. Add more or less as required. You can also add sugar instead of jaggery. Palm jaggery and coconut sugar can also be added instead.

7. Then begin to mix it with the flour. Overall I added ¾ cup of water. Depending on the quality of whole wheat flour you can add more or less water.

8. Mix very well and make a smooth batter without lumps. The batter has to be like a Dosa batter and have a medium consistency.

9. Now heat a pan. Spread a bit of oil on the pan. You can use non stick or a cast iron pan. I use non stick pans for these pancakes as they are easier to handle on a non stick pan. Instead of oil you can also use ghee or butter.

10. Keep the flame to a low. Pour a spoonful of the batter on the pan and then gently spread it. Do not spread too much. Just make small pancakes.

15. drizzle with maple syrup and Serve eggless banana pancakes hot or warm. if using honey, then drizzle it on pancakes, when they have become lukewarm or cooled down. The reason is that one should never heat the honey as it becomes toxic.
