Banana Buttermilk Pancakes with Nutella

Everyone knows that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That’s why a special breakfast just for Dad is the perfect way to show how much you care this Father’s Day. I can’t think of a more scrumptious and decadent breakfast than a plate full of Buttermilk Banana Pancakes topped off with a spoonful (or two, or three) of Nutella.

I won’t get to celebrate Father’s Day with my own Dad this year, because he is deceased. But I will get to celebrate with the other special Dads in my life like my son, Nathan.

Making Dad’s day special.

Although I can’t spend Father’s Day with my own Dad, I still look forward to helping my grandchildren treat their Dad to an extra special stack of banana buttermilk pancakes – something I know he will absolutely love. I just know he will enjoy sitting out on the front porch in the morning, with a tray of delicious banana buttermilk pancakes, Nutella, and orange juice. Maybe even a small bouquet of flower, since it’s an extra special day.

    Yum! We love Nutella on everything in my house! I even make plain sandwiches for my son on the weekends if we need a quick meal.

    I grew up on Nutella back in the 80s, my grandparents lived in Germany and they would send it to us in care packages. Pancakes, toast, croissants, ice cream, rice krispie treats you name it we ate it with it! We would even drop tablespoons of it into our hot cocoa on cold winter mornings :)

    Pretty sure my daughter would think she’d died and gone to heaven if she woke up to these little beauties. Anything with Nutella sends her over the moon.

    I just made this for my daughter and I although it was for dinner. We always enjoy breakfast for dinner. We used raspberry preserves because that is all we had. It was very good. I always love being able to add another great recipe to my files.

    My grandsons are crazy about pancakes but I don’t know if two of them have ever had Nutella. I know the one with me loves Nutella so I will definitely have to make these for him. I am having a sleep over with all the boys in July so I guess I’ll have to find out if they like Nutella before then.


    This sounds so good. We are a little obsessed with Nutella at my house. Gonna have to try these (minus the raspberries on top).

    I can do the pancakes, Nutella and even the raspberries but I have to draw the line at bananas. Although I suppose I could leave the banana out
