This is a great, filling, and healthy pancake!! I omitted the eggs( there was enough moisture). I used unprocessed bran instead of wheat germ and reduced the baking mix to 2/3 cup. Then I just used cooking spray not butter to cook. It was soo filling that we didn't eat anything till late that night. Thanks for a "good for you" pancake recipe.

As big fans of a thicker, dense pancake this recipe was a winner for us! These were tasty, super healthy and filling pancakes. I used Hodgson Mill Buckwheat pancake mix and added a couple tablespoons of ground walnuts and almonds. I also substituted lowfat buttermilk for half of the skim milk. The banana and cinnamon are a lovely highlight to the flavor and are not overpowering. I had mine spread with Smart Balance and hubby spread his with a little natural peanut butter. We both topped ours off with Sugar free maple syrup served along side fresh fruit which made for a delicious and South Beach friendly breakfast. I did find the batter needs a pinch of salt after tasting the first pancake, so we added it to the rest of the batter. Do not try this recipe if you like a light fluffy or eggy pancake, but if you want a substantial more dense and tall pancake that will fill you up and is good for you, this is it!!
