Ingredients To Gather
  • All-purpose flour.
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Whole Milk
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • One overripe banana. Overripe bananas are brown and spotty, but not so brown it doesn't hold its shape.
  • One egg
  • Three tablespoons butter, melted.
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • One tablespoon sugar.


Equipment To You'll Need


  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Whisk
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Non-Stick skillet or griddle


How To Make Strawberry Banana Pancakes


In a small bowl, mix the white flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well to combine.

In a large bowl, mash the banana. To the mashed banana, add the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Add the milk to the large bowl and mix again.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. It's ok if there are a few lumps left in the batter. These will likely be from the mashed banana.

Cut the strawberry into small pieces and add them to the batter. Fold the strawberries into the batter, but try not to mash them.

Preheat a large skillet or a griddle over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of butter to the hot pan. Use a non-stick pan if you can which will prevent the pancakes from sticking.

Spoon the batter into the hot griddle or hot skillet. Let the batter cook for a couple of minutes. When the edges start to dry out and there are small bubbles in the center of the pancake, flip the pancake.

Cook the second side for 2-3 minutes. Continue with the rest of the batter until all the pancakes are made. Serve immediately.


Pro Tip! A great way to make sure you get perfect pancakes every time and that they are all the same size is to use a measuring cup to add the batter to the pan.

Tips and Tricks


  • To make sure your pan or griddle is hot enough, take a quarter-sized amount of the batter and place it in the griddle. If the edges start to dry out and the middle begins to bubble, the pan is hot enough to begin cooking the pancake batter.
  • To make these dairy-free pancakes, use oat milk, soy milk, or almond milk and vegetable oil instead of butter.
  • Want to up the nutrition in these fluffy pancakes? Use oat flour or white whole wheat flour! That will increase the fiber count in your pancake stacks
  • If you are making a big batch, cook the pancakes all the way through and then place them on a baking sheet in a 200-degree oven. Let them sit in the oven until you are ready to serve them. This will keep them fresh and warm.


How To Serve Strawberry Banana Pancakes

  • Topped with banana slices and strawberry slices.
  • With homemade whipped cream!

Questions About Strawberry Banana Pancakes


Can I make strawberry banana pancakes ahead of time?

Yes! I love making a big batch of these pancakes on the weekend and reheating them throughout the week. Place the cooked pancakes into an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat, place them in the toaster oven or reheat them in the microwave.

Can I freeze this strawberry banana pancake recipe?

Yes! Allow the pancakes to cool completely and then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze them until they are frozen solid and them place them in a freezer bag. They can be frozen for up to 3 months. They can be reheated in the microwave or toaster oven.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

Yes! Frozen strawberries can be used instead of fresh strawberries. If you only have whole frozen strawberries, defrost them first so you can chop them into pieces.

Can I make these with pancake mix?

Yes! If you a mix like bisquick mix at home, make the pancake batter as the directions state. In a small bowl, mash the banana. When the batter comes together, fold in the mashed banana and the chopped strawberries. Cook as the instructions state.
