I concocted these fluffy pancakes using a muffin recipe. We love them topped with strawberry jam for breakfast, supper or even just snacking. They're delicious drizzled with maple syrup, too. —Janie Obermier, St. Joseph, Missouri

"These pancakes were delicious! Hubby and I loved them! I sprayed my griddle with cooking spray. I didn't have any problems with them sticking to my griddle. Perfect!!"

"My husband and I really enjoyed these pancakes! I did substitute brown sugar for the white sugar and added a little extra oil to the skillet about halfway through to keep the pancakes from sticking. We thought this recipe was a nice change of pace from traditional pancakes."

"I made this as a special breakfast for my young boys while the oldest was on Spring Break and they both Loved them! They asked me to make them again sometime. I even used white whole wheat and couldn't tell any difference."

"My family loved these! The banana flavor is very light, which I like. With bananas and oatmeal these have to be better for us then the more traditional pancakes. Mine seemed to stick to my skillet though."
