Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (60g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (6g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium-to-large very ripe banana
  • 1 large egg
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk any percentage, divided
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, use a fork or potato masher to mash peeled banana very well. Add egg, 2 tablespoons of the milk, oil, and vanilla, and mix until well-combined. 

  3. Add flour mixture and use a spoon to stir until just combined. If batter seems too thick, add up to 1 tablespoon more milk.

  4. Heat a griddle to 350°F or a skillet over medium heat (no higher). Once cooking surface is hot, lightly grease with butter or cooking spray and add pancake batter using a 1/3 cup. Cook on first side until the tops of the pancakes begin to bubble. Flip and cook until cooked through.

  5. Serve and enjoy!
