Made this for my 1 year old son and I for breakfast this morning, and we both loved them! I did make a few alterations based on what I had in my pantry and off past experience with pancakes. I substituted buttermilk for the milk and therefore used a total of 1 1/2 cups as well as added 1 tsp baking soda. I only had two bananas, but the taste was perfect; likely because they were very ripe! Because I planned on freezing these, I left a few of them without blueberries and they tasted yummy as well.Also worth noting that my non-wheat-pancake-eating husband thought these were delicious so I ended up not having very many pancakes leftover to freeze.

We really enjoyed these pancakes. They were very thick, but still delicious and cooked completely. Next time I might try adding a little extra milk..Edit: The next time I made them I used 1 1/2 cups of soy milk and that seemed perfect to me!

Great recipe - easy and delicious. I used all all purpose flour since I didn't have whole wheat.

We have made this many times over and used all kind of different mix-ins. I like the Blueberry Banana or we did Chocolate Raspberry too (I only had raspberries in fridge!). My family and mom loved this recipe as well and requested the recipe. Give it a try!

These were absolutely delicious! The banana flavor was excellent. Definitely the perfect portion of ingredients. I have used box pancake mix to save time. I just use the Box pancakes mixed with the vanilla extract and fruit. Turns out perfect every time.

These were so yummy! I used whole wheat graham flour which gave them a really great textural contrast. And I used a few chocolate chips in place of the blueberries. Just a drizzle of syrup is all you need because of the sweet bananas. My 4 yr old loved them too.:)

Absolutely delicious! Moist, sweet enough to go without syrup. Served with a tablespoon of peanut butter and got rave reviews!

Didn't use the all purpose flour, just stuck with wholewheat and went for 2 bananas instead of 3 and they turned out delicious. Super fluffy and nice and easy to make!

Excellent! I used 2 bananas and felt that was just right. I wish that I had mashed them more thoroughly and next time I would add a little cinnamon. Otherwise I followed the recipe and myself and both kids devoured them. Made about 15 medium sized pancakes and took about 30 minutes to cook them all. Quick and delicious!
