Reviews for Banana Blueberry Pancakes
"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!"
"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.."
"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!"
"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."
"I had fresh blueberries that we just got from the farmers market and wanted to use them. I thought to make these because they sounded so good and with all the reviews. Instead of the wheat flour that I did not have on hand I used All-Purpose flour and 1 1/2 bananas and everything else to the exact. Neither did I or my son enjoy the recipe. Wish we had because it looked and sounded so good. And syrup on them does not taste well on them. I tried the first one with everything and then the second, tried it with no blueberries. Not something I will make again. Was disappointed."
"very delectable and easy to make"
"I love this recipe! it is light and the entire family gobbles it up!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!!"
"made it exactly except for i only had 1 banana instead of 3. Tasted great. my kid and husband ate them up quickly and i was happy to give them something with whole wheat flour that had good taste."
"I followed the directions exactly, and it did not turn out at all. Was very gooey in the middle. I even tried adding flour to it, and it was still not good."
"These didn't turn out so well, I followed the recipe exactly, but the middle was all gooey. Maybe less banana or more flour would help to dry them out a bit."
"I love this! I used all-purpose flour as I did not have wheat, only 2 bananas, put a little cinnamon in this and sprinkled with the blueberries, amazing!"
"easy, thanks for posting"
"I made these this morning for Sunday morning breakfast and my guys loved them! I did make a few changes... I used honey in place of the sugar, omitted the salt, used only 1 banana, added a tsp. of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of walnut oil. We topped the pancakes with a combination of warmed, fresh blueberries and fresh strawberries topped with a sprinkling of chopped walnuts and a dusting of powdered sugar. Yum! This recipe will be the starting point for all pancake breakfasts at our house from now on!"
"Great recipe! I added 1/4 tsp of nutmeg & didn't have whole wheat flour so ground up quick Oats into flour. Will make this again using whole wheat as soon as I get to the store!! :) Thank you for sharing!"
"Really excellent pancakes. You don't need the syrup for sweetness. A family "10"."
"These pancakes are fantastic!!! The first "homemade" (non-mix) pancakes I have made, and will make again and again. Thank you for this recipe!"
