Tools You'll Need

  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Fork
  • Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Oven-proof plate
  • 10" nonstick skillet


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter for frying


  1. Preheat oven

    Preheat oven to 225º.

  2. Mash bananas

    Using the back of a fork mash the bananas until there are no chunks.

  3. Mix eggs and baking powder

    Crack eggs into bananas and add baking powder. Whisk until fully combined and set aside.

  4. Preheat skillet

    Place your nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.

  5. Melt butter

    Melt about a ½ tablespoon of butter in the skillet.

  6. Scoop batter onto skillet

    Scoop ¼ cup or 3 tablespoons of the banana mixture into the pan and repeat to form 2–3 pancakes in your pan.

  7. Cook pancakes

    Cook until bubbles begin to form on top and the pancake is golden brown (about 3–4 minutes). Flip the pancake with your spatula and cook the other second side until it's a golden brown.

  8. Repeat with remaining batter

    Remove to an ovenproof plate and place in oven to keep warm. Prepare the pancakes with the remaining batter, cleaning the pan with a paper towel between each use.

  9. Serve and enjoy

    Consider adding some chopped walnuts, blueberries, and/or a dash of cinnamon to the batter. Try topping with your favorite nut butter instead of syrup, too. After garnishing, enjoy immediately!
