Banana Pancake Bites


  • ½ cup 
    all purpose flour
  • ½ cup 
    whole wheat (regular or pastry) flour
  • ¼ tsp. 
  • 1 tsp. 
    baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. 
    BeeMaid Honey
  • 1 cup 
  • banana, mashed
  • large egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. 
    melted butter
  • 1 tsp. 
  • 4 Tbsp. 
    unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. 
    orange zest
  • 2 Tbsp. 
    BeeMaid liquid or creamed honey


Preheat oven to 425F
In a large bowl, whisk both flours, salt and baking powder.  Add honey, buttermilk, mashed banana, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix until just combined.
Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray and pour heaping tablespoons of batter into the pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until puffed and slightly golden.
Combine softened unsalted butter, orange zest and honey either by hand using a spoon or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.  Turn the machine on medium speed and mix until creamy and well combined.  Transfer to a serving dish.
Remove the pancake bites from the oven and allow to cool slightly before removing them from the pan. Please note that steps 4 and 5 may need to be repeated to create all 30 bites (depending on the size of the pan).  Serve with honey butter.
Tip: These bites freeze well and can be made ahead or stored as leftovers in the freezer.
