Mealthy Tip

You can also serve these delicious pancakes as a side dish to a Latin-inspired meal with chicken, beef, rice, and beans! Plantains are now widely available in most grocery stores, but you can also find them in Latino markets or shops with a good produce section like Whole Foods.

These pancakes are really sweet! Next time I may not caramelize the plantains beforehand, I may just smash them and use them like the banana pancakes recipe on this website. Still, they were really good and I like the use of the plantains.

I love plantains, but never thought to use them in pancakes. This recipe was really easy. I didn't add the brown sugar because I don't like them that sweet, but I know a lot of people do. Good recipe.

Delicious plantain pancakes. It basically replaces bananas. I bet you can also mash them and fold into the batter, but I caramelized mine in the skillet first as the recipe says. Very good recipe.

Pancakes are a huge favorite in my house and these were instant classics. The plantains add a sweetness to them that you don't get with bananas. To make them a little healthier I added some rolled oats to the batter.
