New Delhi: Banana pancakes are super easy to make with wholesome ingredients like whole wheat flour and jaggery. These sweet, tender vegan banana pancakes are so tasty that everyone will enjoy them.


  • 3 bananas – medium to large (overripe or ripe)or 285 grams
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour or 120 grams
  • ½ teaspoon crushed fennel or whole fennel seeds
  • 3 tablespoons jaggery powder or add as required – optional
  • ¾ cup water or add as required
  • oil as required


Preparing Batter

  1. Peel bananas and place them in a mixing bowl or pan.
  2. Slice them first and then mash them with a potato masher. For overripe bananas, you can directly mash them with a veggie or potato masher.
  3. Now add jaggery powder. You can add the amount of jaggery as per the sweetness of the bananas.
  4. Add more or less as required. You can replace sugar with jaggery. Mix very well.
  5. Then add whole wheat flour and lightly crushed fennel seeds or whole fennel seeds. Crush the fennel seeds lightly in your mortar-pestle.
  6. Add water in parts.
  7. Then begin to mix it with the flour. I added a total of ¾ cup of water. Depending on the quality of whole wheat flour you can add adjust the water proportion.
  8. Mix very well and make a smooth batter without lumps. The batter has to have a medium-thick flowing consistency.

Making Banana Pancakes

  1. Now heat a pan or skillet. Spread a bit of oil on the pan. Instead of oil, you can also use ghee or butter. You can use a heavy nonstick or a cast-iron skillet.
  2. Keep the heat to a low or medium-low. Pour a spoonful of the batter into the pan and then gently spread it. Do not spread too much. Just form small pancakes.
  3. Cook the pancake on low to medium-low heat.
  4. Drizzle some oil on the sides and top.
  5. When the base gets golden and slightly crisp, turn over the banana pancake.
  6. Cook this second side until it gets golden. If you want you can flip and cook once or twice.
  7. Then place each cooked banana pancake in a single layer inside a casserole dish or on a baking sheet, and keep it in an oven at the lowest temperature while you make the remaining pancakes.
