"Top Chef" Ryan Scott shares an easy, healthy recipe for pancakes made with whole wheat flour and naturally sweetened with bananas. (No added sugar!)

"For an on-the-go breakfast, let the pancakes cool on a wire rack, transfer them to a zip-top bag, and freeze. When ready to serve, warm the pancakes in the microwave for 30 seconds, then off you go!" –Ryan

  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 overripe medium bananas (about ¾ cup mashed)
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter 
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup whole milk, at room temperature 
  • 1 cup blueberries, rinsed and dried
  • Cooking spray


Serves: 12


In a medium bowl, using a whisk, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until thoroughly combined.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas until creamy with a few small chunks remaining. Add the peanut butter, eggs, and milk and mix well to combine. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined; stop mixing when the batter just comes together to avoid overmixing. Gently fold in the blueberries.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray. Using a paper towel, carefully wipe the skillet so there is just a bare residue of spray coating the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

Using a 2-ounce scoop or ¼-cup measure, scoop 3 portions of the batter into the skillet, leaving room for them to spread. Cook, undisturbed, until deep brown on the bottom, 5 to 6 minutes, then flip and cook, undisturbed, until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve straight from the skillet or at room temperature.
