About This Recipe
Ragi Banana Pancake (Finger Millet Banana Pancake) is a delicious combination of ragi 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.
Drizzle a little honey or maple syrup on top to serve for breakfast or brunch. Add a few banana slices with some crushed nuts for a nice crunch.
They are a hit among kids as well. It is a great way to add some nutrition into your kid’s diet.
Flour – It uses both whole wheat flour and ragi flour. You can also use all purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour. I prefer whole wheat, as it is much healthier alternative.
Banana – Use ripe bananas as they add a perfect sweetness in the pancakes.
Milk – I have added low fat milk, but you can add any milk of your choice. You can also go for almond milk to make it dairy free.
Eggs – It helps your pancakes to rise and become fluffy.
Honey – For that added sweetness! Skip it, if your bananas are sweet enough.
Vanilla Extract – Use a high quality one for the best flavour.
Others – You will also need baking powder, baking soda, salt and oil, which will add to its texture. Butter can also be used instead of oil to cook pancakes.
Ragi Health Benefits

It is rich in dietary fibre, 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.
It also improves bone strength and fights Anemia.
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 a foil.
They are also freezer friendly! Store them in a freezer safe ziplock bag with a parchment paper between each pancake and they will last for 3 months. Just thaw, warm and serve!
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).

Granola is also a great addition for some crunch.
