Banana Pecan Pancakes Stacked High

Last weekend I wanted to make Banana Pecan pancakes – but I was out of pecans! Instead I made Whole-Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes with a Chocolate Chip Surprise. This morning I was able to make my Whole Wheat Honey Banana Pecan Pancakes! These pancakes are packed with healthy ingredients and are delicious! When you make pancakes with white flour you will be hungry in a short time. My husband considers these pancakes as energy food and a great way to start the day. The final pancakes came out hardy and heavy – I had a hard time stacking all of them for the picture. I only had time to take a few pictures before they started to tilt and I had to save them! Any left over pancakes will freeze nicely and reheat in the microwave oven.

Dry Ingredients
2 1/2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
½ cup Pecans
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon

Wet Ingredients
2 Eggs
2 Bananas (chopped or mashed)
2 cup Milk, fat-free 

2 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla

1 Banana, sliced

Preheat oven to its warm setting. I like to place my pancakes in the oven to stay warm while I am making them. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. I include my chopped pecans into the pancake mixture.

Preheat the griddle on medium heat. Make sure the grill is hot. If a drop of water sizzles the grill is ready. Cook about 2-minutes or until the bubbles start to pop. Then turn over and cook for about another minute. Place in oven to keep them warm.

Serve your stack of Whole Wheat Honey Banana Pecan Pancakes. You can add slice bananas and pecans to the top of the pancakes. Enjoy!!

    These look really good! I will be trying next weekend. I think they will probably freeze well.

    1. Bernice says:

      Thanks Kathie! They are really good. We froze the left overs and they reheat nicely. Greg loves to make a big batch of pancakes so he can have them for a few weekends. I was skeptical that they would be good – but they are! 🙂

    I just made pancakes with a pecan toffee sauce and bananas! Love the idea of making them with whole wheat flour!

    1. Bernice says:

      Sounds wonderful. So many great options to take the same ingredients and make slight changes to introduce different flavors and textures.

      1. eschof2 says:

        Completely agree 🙂

      2. Bernice says:

        🙂 Have a great day!

    They look scrumptious!

    1. Bernice says:

    I love pancakes and these look delicious! Can’t wait to try your recipe.

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you. They are very good. If you use very ripe bananas they will add more flavor to the pancakes. Plus you can smash them or slice them thinly to add to the batter. I like to add them to the batter – some people will only them to the top of the pancakes. I hope you enjoy them!

  7. I am going to try this!

    1. Bernice says:

      I hope you enjoy them! Plus they do freeze nicely and reheats in the microwave. Makes for a quick breakfast!

  8. Sheryl says:

    You cook the same way I do. If I’m out of an ingredient, I’ll substitute ingredients–and maybe tweak the much that it morphs into another recipe.

    1. Bernice says:

      It is always great when you can use the ingredients you have in your pantry – I dislike when I have to throw out items because I do not have another recipe. So being creative or resourceful is always important. 🙂

  9. these sound amazing

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you – we did and still are enjoying them as there are a few left in the freezer. 🙂

  10. I was planning to make pancakes today and since I have a large stack of bananas I think I will give your recipe a try! They look so delicious as do all of your pancake recipes!

    1. Bernice says:

      That is wonderful – I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

      1. I made the pancakes, they were delicious…and then I wrote a blog post about them linking back to your original recipe. Thank you for the inspiration!

      2. Bernice says:

        They look delicious! I also loved how you decorated them with a few flowers – a very nice touch!!

    1. Bernice says:

      I am glad you were able to add your own touches to the recipe. 🙂
