Banana Maple Pancakes



  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 Tbsp. sugar

  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

  • 1 large egg

  • 1½ cups buttermilk

  • 2 cups mixed cooked whole grains (such as barley, farro, rye, spelt, kamut, and/or quinoa)

  • Melted Brooklyn Buttery Maple butter (for pan) 


  • Room-temperature Brooklyn Buttery Maple butter, 
  • Pure maple Syrup 
  • 2 ripe banans 


  • Slice bananas into small one inch rounds. Heat a non stick skillet on medium high. Brush with butter. Place sliced banana rounds on to pan being careful not to over crowd the pan. Cook bananas  for 1 minute on each side or until sugars have rendered and banana is soft. Place in bowl and save until time to plate. 

  • Whisk whole wheat and all-purpose flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk egg and buttermilk in a medium bowl just to incorporate. Using a few swift strokes, whisk egg mixture into dry ingredients just to combine. Stir grains into batter (you can pulse the grains in a food processor first if you prefer them in smaller pieces).

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Lightly brush with butter. Add half of batter to skillet, spreading into an even layer as wide as the skillet. Cook pancake until bubbles have formed and broken across the entire surface and underside is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Using 2 spatulas (or sliding onto a flat plate before inverting back into skillet), flip pancake. Continue to cook until lightly browned underneath, about 1 minute. Transfer pancake to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Top pancakes with sautéed banana, room temperature Brooklyn Buttery maple butter and pure maple syrup
