About Ragi Banana Pancakes

Ragi Banana Pancakes (Finger Millet Banana Pancakes) are a delicious combination of ragi flour (finger millet flour), whole wheat flour, mashed ripe bananas, and other simple ingredients. They are healthy, easy to make, and 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 your favorite toppings. Nutella, chocolate sauce, or nut butter, such as almond and peanut butter, are some more topping options.

Ingredients

Flour – This recipe uses whole wheat flour and ragi flour (finger millet flour). Ragi has many health benefits. Read about them here.

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 this dairy-free, use plant-based milk like almond, soy, coconut, etc.

Eggs help the pancakes rise and become fluffy. To make these eggless, replace the eggs with ¼ cup plain yogurt.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make these pancakes gluten-free?

Yes, replace whole wheat flour with any gluten-free flour of your choice.

Storage Suggestions

Banana Ragi Pancakes taste best when served right out of the pan. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week in an airtight 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 three months. Just thaw, warm, and serve!

  1. I have used this recipe many times and the family loves how the pancakes turn out. Definitely a must try. Everyone including the adults love these delicious pancakes

  2. 5 stars
    Nice recipe and became easier to handle ragi flour
    I sprinkled moringa powder on top . Great taste.i did not use banana.

  3. Hey can we make this without using wheat flour? My daughter is gluten intolerant. What else can b used instead of wheat flour?

  4. 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?

    1. 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.

  5. 5 stars
    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!
