These banana buttermilk pancakes are light, fluffy and delicious! Topped with candied walnuts and maple syrup, they’re a wonderful start to the day.

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Do you know that Jack Johnson song, Banana Pancakes? That’s my song. Waking up slow is the very definition of me in the morning. (Some people say that song is about something else but I run a family friendly blog here so we will ignore those people lol!)

Some days though, we get hit by the pancake bug and we are suddenly up at a respectable hour expected of responsible adults on a Saturday, fussing in our kitchen making pancakes. And this is one of our favourites. Light, fluffy and so good! Throw in some candied walnuts and let me tell you, you’d become a morning person too.

Freeze = banana buttermilk pancakes everyday

Pancakes are usually a weekend treat because of how long they take to prepare. Nobody seems to have that kind of time on a Monday morning.

But what I love about these pancakes is they freeze really well. This recipe is good for about a dozen pancakes so we freeze whatever we can’t finish that day (so that’s 2 pieces haha)…much like how we do it with these scones:

Just put the pancakes in a large Ziploc bag (I put parchment paper between the pancakes so they don’t get stuck together) and stick the bag in the freezer.

So on hectic weekday mornings, we just microwave a piece straight out of the freezer for 15 seconds or so and it’s good as new. Still fluffy and still delicious!

Happy Mother’s Day!

These pancakes are also a lovely treat for the moms in your life on Mother’s Day (or everyday, really). If you’re thinking of a special brunch or even breakfast in bed, add banana buttermilk pancakes to your spread!

Candied walnuts

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

And can we talk about those candied walnuts for a second? They are so good I eat them on their own. As topping to these pancakes though, they are amazing.

So this weekend, get up early and reward yourself with banana buttermilk pancakes. They will make you feel great about being up before noon!

Of course, who said pancakes are just for breakfast and brunch? Go ahead and make these pancakes at midnight. They will be just as delicious.

Happy cooking!

Love your drizzle shots. When I was a kid, pancakes were a Sunday morning type of thing. It's been so long since I've leisurely enjoyed pancakes in that manner. The post kind of brought back memories of childhood Sundays.
