Cinnamon Pecan Banana Pancakes

Pancakes are a staple at my house for a weekend breakfast … however, each one of my guys has an opinion of what flavor of pancakes are the best!  I have shared two recipes in the past … Melt In Your Mouth Pancakes and Cornmeal Pancakes.  Today, I’m sharing my favorite … Cinnamon Pecan Banana Pancakes … maybe they should be called Mom’s Favorite Pancakes 😉

Cinnamon Pecan Banana Pancakes


I highly recommend these for breakfast on New Year’s Day … start the year off right … with pancakes!

Cinnamon Pecan Banana Pancakes

  • 1-1/4 cups flour (I use unbleached)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder (preferably aluminum free)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 to 1-1/3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 4 bananas or 1 per person
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  In a small bowl combine egg, oil and 1 cup milk.
  2. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir to combine.  Stir in pecans.  Let batter rest, about 10 minutes while griddle is heating.
  3. Turn on electric griddle to 350°F or medium heat over open flame.
  4. Add milk to pancake batter until desired consistency, about that of cake batter.
  5. Oil/grease griddle if desired.  Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake on preheated griddle.  Cook until bubbles pop and remain open.  Flip and continue cooking until done.   Makes about eight 5″ pancakes.
  6. Serve with sliced banana and warm maple syrup.

  1. I haven’t made Cornmeal Pancakes but I do eat my share of other kind of pancakes. Before making my own; I always liked the IHOP pancakes but nothing beats homemade pancakes with homemade syrup.
    Pancakes plain, pancakes with bananas, pancakes with strawberries, pancakes with blueberries, chocolate chip pancakes; white chocolate coconut pancakes. Been tempted in making some red velvet pancakes but haven’t gotten to it yet. Maybe someday :} You name it, I do love my pancakes but I do not like green eggs and ham :} Waffles…….second runner-up

    Have a Very Happy, Safe and Blessed New Years to you and your family
