"This recipe is a good way to use up bananas and want something a little different for breakfast or dinner. My daughter loves them with chocolate syrup on top but I prefer maple syrup. This recipe came from a back issue of Canadian Living magazine."

"I woke up Saturday morning and somehow had some buttermilk, chopped walnuts and bananas I needed to use up. I've made pancakes so many times but these were far and away the best. Thanks!"
"Just made these and they are excellent. I made a few modifications. First, I omitted butter altogether and cooked them on the non-stick griddle. I also subbed brown sugar for white and toasted the walnuts prior to putting them in the batter. A little extra effort for great reward. And last, I used 1 c. white flour and 1/2 c. whole wheat for a little extra fiber. I will be making these again and can't wait to make them while camping over the fire!!"
"Good recipe. Like others, left out the nuts, but added a pinch of nutmeg. Other than that they were very good, and I served them with maple syrup."
"This recipe makes the BEST pancakes...They were WONDERFUL! I'm going to try using all the batter and freezing the leftovers next time. Trust me, you can't go wrong with this recipe!"
I substituted white-whole wheat flour equally for the white. i needed to add a little milk to thin out the batter. Did not use nuts.
"These were good just not a favorite for us. I made ours gluten free using a bit more gluten free flour mix (1 cup white rice flour, 2 tbs brown rice flour, 1/2 cup tapioca starch, 1 tsp guar gum) I also added some sea salt, I did use the walnuts but didn't really like them in it as the texture of the pancakes was so fine, I used 3% yogurt and water in place of the buttermilk/sour milk, canola oil in place of butter as that is all I had, plus the rest of the ingredients. We had them with a good local honey drizzled on top."
"I made these but used blueberry rather than nuts. My husband loved them."
"This must have been the best banana pancakes I have made so far. They came out beautifully moist and light. Will make again and again!"
"I made this, this morning for Father's Day for my husband. I'm pregnant with our first child and wanted to cook something a little special since it's not quite real for him yet. I added about 3/4 a cup of chocolate chips but followed everything else. It was an amazing recipe! He told me I outdid myself. :) Thanks for sharing"
"Terrific. I used a non-stick pan, so didn't grease it. Left out the nuts, but they are perfect with syrup. Think they'd be great with preserves or whipped cream as well. So very good."
"What a great idea for those overripe bananas! I followed the recipe, except omitting walnuts. Moist, tender and light. I use a nonstick griddle so don't add butter for cooking. The kids loved these with maple syrup, even the child who hates bananas. A fun variation would be to add some mini chocolate chips when cooking. Thanks, Irmgard, for sharing the recipe!"
"We liked these a lot, and it made for a really special breakfast!! The pancakes were so flavorful, and the walnuts gave a nice crunch. I've never made homemade pancakes before....its easy enough!! I used whole wheat flour. I followed the recipe exactly, and it came out perfect! THANKS!! "
"Yumm! Fabulous recipe! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!"
"I made these this morning and followed the recipe except omitted the walnuts. My batter was very thin (which I expected with the wet/dry ratio in the recipe) and they turned out a little more like crepes. The flavor was excellent. I will probably make them again but I think I will add another 1/2 c flour and some baking powder."
"Yum! Thanks for suggesting this recipe as a way to use up my extra bananas. I made the batter in my blender to make it smooth and I left out the walnuts. The kids loved this breakfast treat and i froze the extras for another breakfast in the future. Thanks!"
"I followed this recipe to a tee with the exception of the nuts. I used the sour milk I had and I'm sorry to say that these were awful. I had to throw the whole batch in the garbage. They just did not cook through, were really soggy inside like raw and doughy eventhough golden brown on the outside. And I doubled the normal cooking time of a normal pancake."
"Had leftover buttermilk and bananas so this was a great discovery. After the first group I tried one and thought they needed a bit of salt so I added a bit less than a tsp. to the rest of the batter and the next group were better. They were quite thick so I was having some trouble getting them cooked all the way through, but that might have been my problem adjusting to a new pan. May try more buttermilk next time. My family loved them and they were tasty!"
