  • Place a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 teaspoon oil to the hot skillet; tilt skillet to coat cooking surface in oil. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet. Cook until tiny air bubbles form on top, 2 to 5 minutes; turn and continue cooking until the bottom is browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining oil and batter. Keep finished pancakes warm.

I only made one substitution--I used 1/4 cup ground oatmeal instead of soy flour only because I did not have soy flour on hand. I did not use the oil to cook the pancakes in because I used my nonstick tabletop griddle. These pancakes cooked up flat but the flavor was fantastic. I served them with a homemade maple-vanilla pancake syrup. Both kids asked me to make these again tomorrow--they ate every single one of these. I think these would be just right with a touch more baking soda. NOTE: I got SIX medium sized pancakes from one recipe. Read More

My family liked these pancakes. I doubled the recipe and got about 16 cakes from 1/4cup batter per cake. I did not double the amount of sugar I used half all purpose flour and half whole wheat pastry flour (no soy flour) and added dash of fresh ground nutmeg. I also used two whole eggs instead of egg whites. Be careful because of all the brown sugar and natural sugar from the bananas these have a tendency to brown very quickly. Read More

I thought these were really delicious pancakes. I made them with the soy flour. I don't like overly sweet pancakes since syrup goes on top anyway so I cut the brown sugar in half; that was perfect. I upped the baking powder to 3/4 tsp; they were not flat at all. I used one whole egg instead of two whites. My only issue was that they did have a tendency to brown quickly and looked like they would burn. I cooked them on med low heat. Even the ones that looked overcooked tasted great. I'd really like to make these again! Read More

There is another buttermilk pancake recipe that is similar and I make the buttermilk myself since I buy raw milk all the time. I modified the batter by adding buckwheat flour. I used 3 good size overripe bananas. Added vanilla used 2 eggs.I covered the pan while cooking. They came out fluffy and moist. Read More

I absolutely love these. I substituted the soy flour for all purpose and the eggs for flax seed/water mixture plus almond milk instead of dairy. Basically I made them vegan. I also kept the brown sugar as is and added about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and they were so amazing I didn t need any syrup! Now that s a first for me! This is now my go to recipe for banana pancakes for life! Read More
