Blend & Pour Silver Dollar Banana Pancakes for Baby/Toddler

The immersion blender just might be my favorite and most-used kitchen tool. I use it for pureeing soup, blending smoothies, and now for making pancakes. Just dump in the short list of ingredients, blend away, and you have an easy & sugar-free batter that cooks up into fluffy little pancakes.


You may be wondering why there is only one photo in this post whereas I typically have at least 3 for a recipe. Well, for some reason I thought I could quickly snap a handful of pics on the floor while Lily played with her new toy kitchen a few feet away.

I was mistaken. She toddled over and grabbed a handful of pancakes before I could take any more photos.

Such is life with a curious & hungry walking 12 month old ;).


Blend & Pour Silver Dollar Banana Pancakes for Baby/Toddler

by Lauren Zembron

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 3-4 minutes

Keywords: fry breakfast banana

Ingredients (12 silver dollar pancakes)

  • 1 medium-sized very ripe banana, peeled
  • 1 large egg, preferably organic
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • vegetable oil or butter for frying


Combine banana and egg in a blender. I like to use my immersion blender with its accompanying blender cup. Blend until smooth.

Add in baking powder and flour. Pulse a few times until combined. Do not overmix. Stir briefly with a spoon if needed. A few lumps are okay. Set aside.

Heat a bit of oil or butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Pour desired amount of pancake batter into skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form on the surface of the pancakes and the bottoms turn golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 1 minute. Let cool to room temperature before giving to baby.

  3. I tried this recipe this morning. I tried it in the waffle iron, wow, that did NOT work! Totally stuck to the iron. I’m sure it was a ‘user error’! The bananas made it too sticky. No big deal. So I figured I would forge ahead and make them the ‘right’ way. Sadly even with lots of coconut oil on the pan and the temp turned on medium the bottoms burned while the top was still super wet. I tried to flip them and it just made a bigger mess. I was able to eat the awfulwaffles myself but the pancakes were a total loss. Any idea why they would have stuck so badly to the pan?

    1. Lisa,

      I’m so sorry the pancakes didn’t turn out well! They may have stuck to the pan if the batter wasn’t completely smooth; banana is very sticky, and if there were bits of unblended banana, it would most likely stick to the pan. Another reason could be that the pan wasn’t hot enough. Maybe try blending a bit more and waiting a few minutes for the pan to thoroughly heat.

      What kind of pan do you use? Are you using nonstick?

      I’ve made these pancakes countless times for my daughter, and they always flip easily.

      I hope you try them again with positive results!

  4. I was using nonstick. I thought the banana was thoroughly blended but you might be right! I’ll make sure the pan is much hotter next time. I’m always scared of using too high of heat but you might be right. Thanks for replying! I love your site!
