Fluffy strawberry banana pancakes are great all by themselves, snacked on out of hand, but they get even better with a bit of butter and syrup on top.

Strawberries and Bananas

This is a fruit combination that works every single time. Bananas and strawberries complement each other well in terms of taste and texture.

Ripe strawberries are sweet and often just a little bit tart, while bananas typically have a mild, sweet flavor. The berry’s slightly firmer texture pairs well with the creamy bananas in these pancakes too.

Fluffy strawberry banana ice cream has been a kid favorite for years now. And this quick five-ingredient strawberry banana milkshake is a high-protein treat that also makes a great breakfast.

Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in countless baked goods, adding moisture and sweetness to all kinds of cakes, cookies, and muffins. Add some chopped strawberries to this coconut banana bread for a whole new flavor combination to love.

Best Pancake Toppings

When you put fruit into pancakes you really don’t need much else to go with them. Admittedly, I enjoy topping them with fruit whenever possible though, as in my world, fruit on fruit on fruit is never a bad plan.

Strawberry and Banana Pancakes

Heat an electric griddle to about 325°F or warm a non-stick skillet or griddle pan on the stove to medium heat. Whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla.

Add the dry ingredients and whisk until mostly smooth. Stir in the melted butter, bananas, and strawberries.

Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle, leaving 1-2” between each pancake. Cook for about 3½ minutes, until deeply browned and lightly bubbled on top.

Flip the pancakes and cook the second side for about 3 minutes, until golden brown. Serve immediately or place in a basket lined with a tea towel to keep warm until ready to serve.

The bananas can be “mashed” in the blender. Combine the bananas, eggs, milk, and vanilla in the blender and blend to combine. This only takes a minute or so.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Pour the banana mixture from the blender into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir to combine and then stir in the melted butter.

Pancakes with fruit are some of our favorites when it comes to happy brunching on the weekend. The fresh flavors in these strawberry and banana pancakes get me every time.

These are a few of my favorite fruit pancakes. Naturally sweet and bursting with blueberry freshness, these blueberry pancakes are a weekday breakfast must in our home.

Banana coconut pancakes topped with butter and syrup are a sweet and tasty way to change up the weekend pancake routine.

Warmly spiced applesauce pancakes are a delicious and fragrant breakfast treat perfect with honey butter and a drizzle of syrup or pancake sauce.

Tangy cranberry pancakes sweetened with maple syrup make getting out of bed on the weekend a little bit easier.

Banana nut pancakes are slightly sweet and deliciously nutty. This is an easy breakfast-time treat for your favorite people.

When it comes to a pancake breakfast, it doesn’t get much better than fresh strawberries. Sweet but not overly sweet they cook beautifully into pancakes giving them a subtly sweet fruity flavor.

Looking for a break from pancakes? Warm hash browns, crumbled bacon, eggs, and cheese create an Amish Breakfast Casserole that is pure morning magic.

Don’t get me wrong though, there’s a time and place for peanut butter and chocolate chips, M&Ms, sprinkles, and even double chocolate pancakes.

There’s even a time for sausage pancakes and bacon pancakes. (Just ask my oldest son, he’ll choose savory over sweet every day of the week.) More often than not though, you’ll find fruit pancakes on our table.
