Next, combine the flour (whole wheat flour), baking powder, salt, cinnamon in a large mixing bowl, and stir them.
Then in a separate bowl, add milk, egg, vanilla, and mix them.
Mix the flour and the egg mixture and stir, being careful not to over-mix.
Add the mashed bananas in the mix.
Preheat the oven. Then grease the pan with a small amount of butter.
Pour the batter onto the pan but do so using a ¼ cup measuring cup to get the perfect, evenly sized pancakes. For the batter to spread into perfectly round shapes, start pouring from the middle, slowly in a circular motion.
Allow them to cook thoroughly on both sides, approximately 2 minutes each side. You’ll know when to flip them when the underside is golden.

⦁ To serve, top with desired toppings like fresh fruit, frozen berries, maple syrup, etc. and enjoy!
