Does it get any cuter than this? Apple and banana slices coated in pancake batter and cooked until golden just might be the perfect breakfast: not only are they a vehicle for your favorite pancake toppings (warm maple syrup, anyone?), but they're an easy peasy way to add a full serving of fruit to your child's morning meal. Similar to the Tik Tok famous pancake cereal, these pancake bites are just plain fun to eat—no matter your age.

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Nellie's Free Range Egg
  • 3 tablespoons Nellie's Free Range Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 firm bananas, cut into 1/2" thick slices, or 2-3 apples, cored and thinly sliced into rings, patted dry


  • Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well combined. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Place a nonstick pan on medium heat and add a bit of butter or oil.
  • Dip sliced bananas and/or apples into the pancake batter until well coated. Cook in batches until golden brown, flipping each pancake bite halfway through.
  • Serve with your favorite pancake toppings and enjoy!

Nellie's Notes

When making the pancake batter, adjust the brown sugar to your liking. If using bananas, which are naturally very sweet, 1 tablespoon should be adequate. If using a tart variety of apple, 2 tablespoons will help balance out the flavor.
