I just love my boys. They are really sweet, but also really opinionated! When I ask them what they want to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner I get a variety of suggestions! The one thing that never surprises me is when they say, “pancakes!”Fluffy Banana Cinnamon Pancakes -

They love pancakes and could eat them every day. We typically eat pancakes every Saturday, but instead of my usual pancake recipe, this time I decided to try something new and came up with these amazing Fluffy Banana Cinnamon Pancakes. Delicious!

My boys love bananas, so this was definitely a great choice. And I’m glad they do because bananas offer excellent nutritional value that our kids need.

Why should your kids eat bananas?

Bananas are loaded with nutrients. They have potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamin B6… the list goes on and on. They are high in fiber, good for your heart and easy to digest. Bananas also are a great food to introduce to your baby when transitioning to solid foods.

In this Fluffy Banana Cinnamon Pancakes recipe, the bananas are the stars of the show. They are so light and fluffy, with the perfect sweet taste of banana. Yum! This recipe is certainly one that the whole family will enjoy.

Even if your child didn’t like bananas on the first try, make these pancakes and see if they have a change of heart. I hope you all enjoy these as much as we did!
