Banana Blender Pancakes

I'm wrapping up Brunch Week with a family favorite, pancakes. I chose this recipe because the last thing I want to do on a lazy Sunday or Mother's Day is wash a ton of dishes. Since these banana pancakes are mixed in the blender, clean up is super easy. 

I made a few minor changes to the recipe.  I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of cinnamon. I find blenders work best when you add the wet ingredients first.

I like to coat my griddle pan with nonstick spray but then also add a bit of butter. I've got a nice wide turner that's perfect for pancakes and I cooked them four at a time.

I was very happy with how light and fluffy they turned out. You can top them with more bananas and drizzle them with honey or maple syrup,

I think they'd also be fantastic with Nutella or peanut butter in between them and I'm definitely going to make the next batch a double and do some with blueberries.

Thank you so much to Christie from A Kitchen Hoors Adventures for hosting #BrunchWeek and to all of the other bloggers who shared their recipes, you can find links to them down below!

Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal


  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (divided)
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium banana, coarsely mashed
  • Nonstick cooking spray, approximately 1 Tablespoon butter


  1. In a blender, combine milk, egg, oil and vanilla, 3/4 cup flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, cover and process just until smooth (I use the Batter setting). Gently stir in remaining 1/2 cup flour and mashed banana.
  2. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat with nonstick cooking spray.  Melt 1 teaspoon of butter on skillet. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto skillet. Cook until bubbles on top begin to pop and bottoms are golden brown. Turn; cook until second side is golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to skillet if necessary.
  3. Serve with additional banana, maple syrup or honey.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
