Banana Almond Pancakes Topped with Nutella








2012! How has your new year kicked off so far? I’m not one for new year resolutions, but how about more posts this year than last year? I can work with that.

I started this year with a fresh stack of flapjacks, so it only makes sense to share with you a pancake recipe. As always, I had browning bananas on the kitchen counter and had to find a use for them. Since I wasn’t planning on eating them soon, I tossed them into a pancake batter and slathered them with Nutella. These pancakes are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any meal in between! They turned out to be a little on the flatter side, but the taste was spot on. The recipe makes approximately 12 pancakes.

Banana Almond Pancakes Topped with Nutella


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the topping
  • 1 tablespoon nutella
  • half a banana, sliced
  • a pinch of sliced almonds


  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. Add the bananas, buttermilk, eggs, honey, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry mixture and stir until just moistened. A couple of clumps are okay!
  3. Scoop the batter by 1/3 cup onto a pan over medium heat. Once bubbles start to appear, carefully flip the pancake and let the other side cook for another minute or two.
  4. Spread your desired toppings on top of the pancakes and eat away!

P.S. Have you ever used this stuff? It’s one of the greatest things I’ve ever stumbled upon I hardly use buttermilk, so I end up throwing a lot of the fresh carton in the trash. It’s such a waste! With this, I can have buttermilk on hand at all times, without having to worry about an expiration date (well, right away, anyway).

You just mix this powder with some water and voi-la! You’ve got some buttermilk for baking.

    I’ve been putting bananas and cinnamon in my pancake mix for a year or so. At first I cut up bananas and put them in sliced, but now I just mash them. They’re so good! I’m sure they’d be great with Nutella too.
