Just whip up your batter, dip the banana rounds, and baked until golden. It’s a family favorite and is especially popular with the kids. It’s also a great way to get them to eat more fruit!


Tips For Easy Banana Pancake Bites

Don’t make your pan too hot, otherwise, the pancakes will brown too quickly (or even burn) before they’re cooked through.

You can use almond flour instead of wheat flour, just make sure to use the superfine variety. The pancakes might just be more dense.

These are a perfect snack for toddlers, if you want to feed them to babies (who are already eating solid foods), remember to mash them up first.

To make them healthier, you can reduce the sugar or use a sugar alternative.

Serving suggestions:

Serve with maple syrup or golden syrupServe with fresh berries and whipped creamServe with lemon curd and blueberries

To make these keto, use almond flour, keto-friendly sweetener instead of sugar, and pumpkin puree instead of banana rounds.

instead of banana rounds, you can chop the banana finely and gently mix it into the batter (don’t overmix). Alternatively, use blueberries or strawberries. If you want to make them sweeter, add white or semisweet chocolate chips.


How To Store Banana Pancake Bites

Leftover pancake bites can be stored in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for up to one week. 

You can also freeze them. Place the small pancake bites pancakes in a Ziploc bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months. Allow to thaw them completely, then reheat. You can either reheat them in the microwave or in a skillet.
