  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 4 tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 2 cups Sour Cream
  • Butter for greasing pan/griddle and for topping pancakes
  • 6 Ripe Bananas peeled and sliced at a slight angle
  • 1 cup of Light Brown Sugar approximately 1 tablespoon per pancake
  • Warm Maple Syrup for topping


  • Crack eggs in a medium mixing bowl, add vanilla, and whisk.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and sea salt.
  • Mix in sour cream to the dry ingredients until just barely incorporated.
  • Whisk in the egg mixture until just incorporated.
  • Heat a nonstick griddle/pan to medium/medium-low.
  • Grease the griddle with some butter.
  • Once butter has melted, quickly add about ½ cup of batter to the griddle. If you have enough room, add more batter, making sure to keep enough space between pancakes.
  • Quickly add about 3 or 4 banana slices per pancake.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar over each pancake.
  • Once bubbles start forming on the pancakes, flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Adjust griddle heat accordingly.
  • Optional: Take additional banana slices and cook individually until caramelized on each side.
  • Serve pancakes with some butter, warm maple syrup, and additional caramelized banana slices. Enjoy!
