Banana Cream Pie Pancakes

Weekend breakfast? Yes, I think I can get by with these once in awhile. I realized this morning that They are reminiscent of a little bite of banana cream pie, but with many less calories.If I weren't already trying to cut some calories, I would have whipped up a little banana-cream egg custard to serve on top---no syrup needed! Yummmmm!

Banana Cream Pie Pancakes


1 1/2 cups flour

3 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 & 1/3 cup whole cream

1/4 cup Dark Rum

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3 teaspoons melted unsalted butter

2 ripe banana, diced

1 ripe banana for blending with cream

½ cup toasted Coconut flakes


Begin by mixing dry ingredients together-set aside. In a blender, combine cream & 1 banana together-blend. Melt butter, & when cool whisk together with sugar, vanilla, and rum. Add eggs, and egg whites one at a time. Add wet & dry ingredients together, and then fold in chopped banana. Cook over a greased skillet over medium heat. Serve topped with sliced bananas and a little whipped cream & toasted coconut.


  1. How did you know I've been DYING for banana cream pie!!! AND I have 3 ripe bananas.....I am feelin this recipe...thanks!

  2. My hubby makes pancakes sometimes on the weekends. I'll have to see if I can get him to make something a little more complicated than his normal buttermilk ones cause these sound delicious!!

  3. Holy moley this is incredible. Great job. I am not a huge pancake kind of gal but these are ones I could eat a stack of.

  4. @Kim-I did eat a stack this morning!

    @Janet-Even starting with a butteermilk base & adding from there might be something he's open to.

    @Margaret-Takes very similar, but probably less than 1/3 of the calories. Win-Win!

  5. Omg..these look great! My husband will love them!

  6. Oh, my! These are absolutely incredible! Buzz, Buzz, BUZZ! I could eat these for dessert - never mind breakfast!
