    I've made these using a VERY ripe banana, thus eliminating the sweetener. I, too, used a 50/50 whole wheat, white flour mix and instead of skim milk, ued unsweetened vanilla almond milk---40 calories a cup!
    I also added ground flax and a bit of wheat germ to super-pack these with nutrition! - 12/23/07

    Good starter recipe even better with minor substitutions for those of us who are not soy lovers; milk, sugar, and 1/2 whole wheat 1/2 regular flour. The bananas keep these yummy griddle cakes moist & nutritious. Watch out they don't burn too quickly while cooking. - 1/16/09

    DELICIOUS! I added another half of a mashed banana and banana and strawberry slices on top. These are absolutely light, fluffy, and have a wonderful subtle sweetness. YUM.
    I made about 12 pancakes (a little under a 1/4 cup per pancake). 2-3 ended up being more than enough per person. - 1/17/09

    I used oat flour instead of white flour and small amount of honey instead of the sugar. They turned out great. - 7/26/08

    Tasted good, but were hard to completely cook through. Dark on the outside, but still a bit gooey in the middle even when cooked slowly over low heat. Kids liked them though and gave them a 9/10. - 1/17/09

    Made this recipe this morning and my husband and I loved it. Did not change a thing; made it just as the recipe indicated. Served with strawberry/rhubarb jam as these fruits go well with bananas. - 5/15/08

    Made them for breakfast this morning. Used whole wheat organic flour, xylitol crystals for the sweetener and added walnut pieces. They were great. Next time I'll add Textured Soy Protein to the batter to increase the protein content. - 1/16/08

    I used Splenda to sweeten and whole wheat flour. These had a very hearty texture, but to make a meal, I wasn't satisfied with just one serving - about 1.5 was good. I also did use syrup, but with a little more sweetener it may not have been necessary. Tasty! - 4/5/09

    not good! they were heavy and gooey, I added all ww flour and a pinch of salt, but kept everything else the same. I had to cook them slowly to keep them from burning while the inside cooked. My kids, who love pancakes, ate one and were done. - 1/17/09
