  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the egg, milk, bananas and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with blueberries. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown. Serve with syrup if desired.

MY REVIEW

"These are very good pancakes. I doubled the recipe and prepared the cakes on my griddle that I buttered. I didn't have any banana so I just used fresh blueberries. My batter was the perfect consistency., but if your batter is too thick a little extra milk should do the trick. The pancakes were easy to make and my family really enjoyed them. Next I make these I will try with banana."

"The pancakes were very tasty but super thick. As written the batter was almost scone like. I added a little extra milk (1/4 cup?) and it made the the mixture workable. I prefer thinner pancakes because they are easier to cook. The positives were: they tasted so good I didn't use syrup, they were very filling, and close to being healthy."

"We enjoyed these a lot; I did, however, add 2 Tablespoons melted butter and I used whole milk since I used buckwheat flour instead of whole wheat. They were healthy and tasty - a winner! I'll make them again for sure. :-)"

"I only had self rising flour, so I used that and omitted the baking powder. And I used 2 bananas instead of 3 and it was perfect! My 5 year old daughter and my picky husband loved them. I put just a tad bit of syrup on mine and they were delicious! Saving this recipe and using again!"

MY REVIEW

"As is, the recipe didn't work. It was way too floury and didn't have enough liquid to mix. I added buttermilk to make the constancy more on the liquidy-but-still spongy side. With my modifications it turned out great I would make again. Maybe add a tsp. nutmeg and cinnamon."
