How do you eat banana pancake dippers?

You can eat them how they are… but they are dippers. 

So dip them in your favorite pancake toppings! 

What do you dip them in?

My favorite is straight-up maple syrup (the real stuff folks!) but here are some other good ideas:

Seriously… the sky is the limit here!

Equipment you need

To make these delicious pancake sticks you only need:

  • A bowl and fork for mixing
  • A spatula for flipping
  • A griddle or skillet.  I prefer to use an electric griddle as I find it easier to control the temperature and can cook a lot at the same time.  I have this griddle. It’s affordable, nonstick, and heats evenly!

Do you want to make gluten free vegan banana pancakes?

No problem!  Simply use a gluten free vegan pancake batter and use coconut oil for cooking! It’s really that simple.

How to make banana pancake dippers

The first step for making these simple banana pancakes is to prepare the pancake mix according to package directions.  Adjust the amount of prepared batter depending on how many you wish to make.

Then add vanilla to the batter.

Melt your butter (or coconut oil) on your griddle or skillet.

While it’s melting, slice your bananas at a diagonal so you have long pieces.

One at a time, dip your bananas into your prepared batter and add to buttered griddle.

Can you freeze pancake dippers?

Yes, you can totally freeze these to heat up on a busy morning!

First, let the pancakes cool completely.

Then, layer them between sheets of waxed paper or special freezer paper in a freezer container or freezer ziplock.

These freeze for up to 2 months.

To reheat, either:

  • pop them in the oven for 5 minutes or so on 350, or
  • reheat in the microwave by wrapping in a damp paper towel and cooking at half power for 2 minutes, flipping halfway through

As my brother only a few months ago found out, that he can't eat products with gluten, for our family gluten-free recipes is now a very important topic! Thank you for this recipe! It is really easy and looks soooo delicious! Thank you also for including amazon links, just unfortunately pancake mixes aren't currently available. Well, we will need to go to some stores!
