About Ragi Banana Pancakes
Ragi Banana Pancakes (Finger Millet Banana Pancakes) is a delicious combination of ragi flour (finger millet flour), whole wheat flour, mashed ripe bananas, and a few other simple ingredients. It is super healthy, easy to make, and gets ready to serve in just 15 minutes.
These pancakes are loaded with nutrients and are a great breakfast option for kids. Drizzle them with honey or maple syrup and top with sliced bananas and crushed dried nuts.
You can also top them with other fresh fruits, whipped cream, or any of your favorite toppings.
Flour – This recipe uses both whole wheat flour and ragi flour (finger millet flour).
Banana – Use ripe bananas as they add a perfect sweetness to the pancakes.
Milk – I have used low-fat milk, but you can use any milk of your choice. To make these dairy-free, use plant-based milk like almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, etc.
Eggs help the pancakes to rise and become fluffy. Replace eggs with ¼ cup plain yogurt to make these eggless.
Honey gives that perfect sweetness.
Vanilla Extract – Use a high-quality one for the best flavor.
Others – You will also need baking powder, baking soda, salt, and oil. You can replace oil with butter to cook the pancakes.
Ragi Health Benefits
Ragi is a great ingredient to include in your meals if you are a diabetic. It helps in controlling blood sugar levels.
It is rich in dietary fiber, which keeps you filled for longer. Therefore, it is an apt choice to include in your weight loss diet.
It is considered really great for skin and hair.
Ragi also improves bone strength and fights anemia.
Ragi Banana Pancakes can be served for breakfast or brunch with a generous drizzle of maple syrup or honey with some sliced bananas and crushed nuts (almonds, walnuts, or pecans).
You can also serve other fruits such as kiwi, berries, mango, etc.
You can also serve it with Nutella, chocolate sauce, or nut butter such as almond butter, peanut butter, etc.
Granola is also a great addition to add some crunch.
Ragi Banana Pancakes taste the best when served right out of the pan. Leftovers can be stored for about a week in the refrigerator, either in an air-tight container or covered in foil.
They are also freezer friendly! Store them in a freezer-safe ziplock bag with parchment paper between each pancake and they will last for 3 months. Just thaw, warm, and serve!

Can i add bajra flour instead of wheat?
Yes sure, you can.
I read about ragi being given to young children because of its high nutritional value and have been looking for ways to feed it to my little one. This is perfect!
Thank you for the recipe. Can whole ragi be used directly? I washed the ragi. Shall i blend it with liquid ingredients? SHould ragi be soaked?
Hi Jessica, it’s best to use ragi powder in this recipe. Ragi grain should be sprouted first before you grind it to get its maximum benefits.
Hey can we make this without using wheat flour? My daughter is gluten intolerant. What else can b used instead of wheat flour?
Yes sure. Use any gluten free flour in place of wheat flour.
