Looking for another way to use up those brown bananas you occasionally end up with? You need to try and use them for these easy banana nut pancakes. I love them with the nuts, but you can always leave them out if you aren’t a fan. I use walnuts, but pecans would also be delicious.
In a bowl, you are going to whisk together some flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Once this is all combined, you are going to make a well.
In another bowl, you are going to whisk some milk, mashed banana, melted butter, vanilla, and an egg. Once this is well blended, you are going to pour the wet mixture into the well of the dry ingredients. Whisk it all together just until combined. Then add in the walnuts and fold. Now it’s time to cook and eat just like any other pancakes.
I like to top these easy banana nut pancakes with some fresh sliced bananas, some additional nuts, and maple syrup for serving.
