1. In a large bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together.

3. Portion out about 3/4 to 1 cup of batter onto a hot non-stick pan or a lightly oiled frying pan and cover with a lid. Let sit on medium heat until the center starts to bubble and become sturdy. Flip pancake over and cook other side until golden brown. Repeat process until all the batter is gone.

4. Garnish with fresh fruit and maple syrup.

    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!

    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

    I made them with 1/2 c whole wheat flour and 1/2 c unbleached white flour, left out the sweetener and added about a tsp of cinnamon. Fantastic served with a Tbsp of apple butter on top! - 1/16/08

    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.
