About these banana pancake dippers
Banana pancake dippers are an easy way to serve finger food that you can feel good about. Made with a simple biscuit mix and filled with real sliced bananas, these kid-friendly dippers are as fun to make as they are to eat.
These dippers make the perfect finger foods for a group of kids. They can help assemble the dippers, and you can serve them with fresh berry sauces to add color and extra fruit to their fun.
If you have little helpers at home who like to be busy with you in the kitchen, this recipe is just right for them. They can help peel the bananas and stir the batter together. Of course the best part is dipping the bananas in the batter! No need for forks or tongs: clean hands can pick the bananas up and dip them right into the Bisquick mix and then onto a plate. Have an adult transfer the bananas to a pan to cook.
Pancake dippers cook up thick and fluffy with a banana center, and taste great on their own or dipped in your favorite pancake sauces. Try them with maple syrup, chocolate sauce, blueberry sauce, or even whipped cream for a banana cream treat. There may be a million ways to enjoy a pancake dipper, but one thing’s for sure–there’s no wrong way to dip a banana pancake dipper.
What you need
You only need 4 simple ingredients to make this fun and easy recipe! They are:
- Maple syrup & powdered sugar for dipping and topping!
How to make them
In a large bowl, combine bisquick, milk and eggs. Stir until combined.
Peel the bananas, cut in half, then slice each half into thin strips.
Dip the banana slices into the pancake batter.
Cook on a nonstick griddle or skillet for approximately 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
How to make these fun banana pancakes your own
- Get creative with your dipping! Banana dippers are so versatile–try them with chocolate sauce, chocolate hazelnut spread, vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, banana pudding, or for a real treat: whipped cream and sprinkles!
- Flavor boosters: Add a little cinnamon to your batter if you like banana-cinnamon flavors. Or try vanilla or almond extract!.
- Creative plating: The shape of the dippers make it easy to be creative. You can make them into letters, a tic tac toe board, or into animal shapes with other breakfast foods. For example, a circle breakfast sausage makes a great cat or dog face, and your dippers are the purrrrfect whiskers. Your circle sausage can also be a turkey body with dipper feathers, or a bear with dipper arms and legs, etc. You can really have fun with these! Make banana silver dollar pancakes to add to the fun.
- If you prefer not to use commercial Bisquick mix, try my homemade Bisquick mix. It’s easy to make and convenient, just like the store-bought version.
Leftover dippers can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days, but they may get a little soggy because of the banana inside.
Reheat on the stovetop over low heat, or in the microwave until the center is warmed through.
