Avocado Banana Pancake Stacks

Could this be the ultimate brunch item?

Recipe Courtesy of Hass Avocado Board

Avocados and bananas come together to make a silky-smooth pancake batter. The banana’s subtle sweetness pairs beautifully with the lusciousness of the avocado. Top the pancakes with additional fruit for bonus nutrition.


For the Avocado Banana Pancake Stacks

  • 2/3 Cups whole-grain flour
  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 Ripe avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 1 Cup ripe banana, sliced
  • 1 Cup reduced-fat milk
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Non-stick cooking spray


For the Avocado Banana Pancake Stacks

In a medium bowl mix together all-purpose and whole wheat flours, brown sugar and baking powder.

In a blender, combine half of the avocado pieces, half of the banana slices, milk, eggs and vanilla; puree until smooth.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined; batter may be lumpy.

Lightly Spray a griddle or skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat.

Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each 4-inch pancake. Cook until bottom is lightly brown and bubbles begin to burst, about 2 minutes. Turn and continue cooking until golden brown. Serve warm with remaining avocados and bananas.
