In just a few short days, National Banana Bread Day will be upon us. That’s right, you read that correctly – National Banana Bread Day is a real national holiday and is on February 23rd. The day stands to honor a favorite baked good of many Americans, one that is almost as synonymous with the U.S. culture as apple pie, and what better way to celebrate it than with a delectable banana bread recipe

However, instead of baking your grandmother’s banana bread recipe, consider spicing things up a bit by whipping up these whole wheat banana bread pancakes. They are a nice treat to have in the morning, as it is nearly like eat cake for breakfast, and your whole family is sure to love them:


2 Cups of whole wheat pastry flour
2 Teaspoons of baking powder
¼ Teaspoon of salt
¼ Cup of brown sugar
1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
¼ Teaspoon of nutmeg
2/3 Cup of milk
1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 Tablespoons of melted butter



In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Once thoroughly mixed, add in milk and vanilla. After these ingredients are combined, the batter will still be fairly dry. Add in bananas and thoroughly mix again. Once these ingredients are combined still in melted butter, and mix until batter is fairly smooth.

Once the batter is mixed, heat a skillet to medium heat. Spoon batter onto heated skillet using a 1/3 measuring cup. Allow pancakes to cook until bubbles appear on top, generally around 2-3 minutes, and then flip, allowing the pancake to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Then serve hot with your favorite syrup. They are also great with fresh bananas and whipped topping.

    I must say that while reading your post I found my thoughts in agreement with the topic that you have discussed

  2. Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods. Evidence from 30,000 years ago in Europe revealed starch residue on rocks used for pounding plants.
