Banana Walnut Pancakes with Fresh Fruit Medley

  • 4 ServingsServings


  • 1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsps granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mashed, ripe banana (about 1 medium)
  • 1 1/3 cups nonfat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chopped California walnuts
  • Maple syrup or honey (optional)
  • Oil for the griddle or skillet



1 Peel mango then slice fruit from pit; cut into 1/2-inch chunks. Peel and halve the papaya then scrape out the seeds; cut it into 1/2-inch chunks; toss with the mango and set aside.
2 If using berries, rinse and pat dry with paper towels; slice strawberriesand set aside to top pancakes.
3 In medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together banana, milk, egg and walnuts.
4 Stir in dry ingredients just until moistened; some lumps in the batter are okay. If the batter seems too thick, add a bit more milk.
5 Heat griddle or skillet, preferably nonstick, until medium hot (a few drops of water sprinkled on it will sputter before evaporating).
6 Brush with a little oil. Spoon the batter onto the griddle, using about 1/4 cup per pancake. Cook about 2 minutes, until the surface is dry and full of bubbles, then turn and cook up to 1 minute longer or until golden brown.
7 Keep pancakes warm in low heat oven.
8 Serve pancakes hot with prepared fruit and drizzle with maple syrup or honey, if desired. Serves 4.
