It’s the season of coziness with greek yogurt chocolate cream of wheat. Let’s make banana pancakes, shall we? Despite using hearty whole wheat flour, this banana pancake recipe produces gloriously fluffy pancakes. These whole-grain pancakes have more substance than regular pancakes, so they’ll keep you going until lunchtime. For added fiber and protein, I like to spread them with peanut butter.

Banana Pancakes Buttermilk

These dark cherry buttermilk pancakes are based on the banana coconut pancakes from Love Real Food. You’ve been missing out if you haven’t tried them yet! These are more traditional banana pancakes, with a little more mashed banana added for full banana flavor.

Buttermilk Pancakes with Bananas

Make these Pancake Bacon sandwiches with whatever bananas you have on hand. Bananas that are overripe are ideal!

Buckwheat Nutrition Facts

Thanks to my son’s allergies, I’ve been playing a lot with eggless and vegan pancakes over the last couple of years. I’ve tried and tested far too many vegan pancake recipes to keep track of, and while there is an infinite number of vegan pancake recipes to try, I feel like I’ve made a dent in the vegan and eggless pancake world.

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • Note:  You can substitute 1 cup buckwheat flour for whole wheat flour.  This is according to 'Cook's Thesarus'.
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 tbl butter
  • 2 bananas sliced (about 1/2" thick slices)


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder  and salt in a bowl and blend.  Mix together the beaten eggs vanilla and buttermilk.  Pour into dry mixture and blend.  Add remaining milk to get a somewhat thick batter consistency.

In a heavy skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tbl of butter.  Scoop in batter to make the size pancakes you want.  Put a few banana slices on top of each pancake.  Leave sufficient space between them to flip.  Adjust the heat from medium to medium low depending upon how the pancakes are cooking.  When the pancakes start bubbling  around the edges, flip and cook another about 2-3 minutes.  Remove, add more butter and continue until all batter is used.

  1. Wait. I’m confused. Where’s the buckwheat? I used to use buckwheat all the time, and when I saw this recipe, all those wonderful memories came flooding back. These are either wholewheat, buttermilk, etc., (which is wonderful indeed), or they are pretending to be buckwheat pancakes. Now that you’ve opened the subject, I’m putting buckwheat flour on my shopping list. Maybe even some groats.

    1. Why Miss Julia, thank you for that elucidation and for now having buckwheat flour on your shopping list…now what are ‘groats’…no idea, but I shall Google…I would say that this is my version of ‘buckwheat’ as in the old TV comedy of ‘The Littl’ Rascals’…but, your comments are pithy and worthy of me making more clear why the name…thank you!!!! 🙂 Ally
