I wanted pancakes with more protein and bran than most recipes. I adapted a couple of other recipes plus my own modifications to come up with this. The bananas add moisture and flavor. Surprisingly light and fluffy considering the use of whole wheat flour. Try not to overcook.

If you're looking to watch your waistline but still enjoy a delicious breakfast, these are a great alternative to regular pancakes.
