I wish I had some eggs right now... (I've got the rest)

Do not  HAVE to use eggs.  Just add a little more fluid to equal the egg.  Add a little vanilla.  yumm

No. It was a from scratch recipe we found in a blender cookbook. Then add walnuts and banana as I described.

Phil B (author)2010-02-20

We often make pancakes from scratch in a blender.  We like to improvise.  We add half of a ripe banana near the end and run the blender until the banana is "liquefied."   Then we add about 1/2 cup of English walnuts and run the blender until they are moderately to finely chopped, but not made into a paste.  When ready to eat, put on some butter and some hot maple-flavored syrup.  They taste like fresh banana nut bread.

That sounds interesting. Do you have a link to your banana walnut recipe?

How many does this recipe make

The pancakes tasted great. I added vavnilla extract, and this improved the flavor in my opinion. You might want to add how many pancakes this recipe makes though. All in all, a great breakfast recipe.

I don't use butter or oil and I add vanilla and cinnamon. Yummy!
And having a griddle is nice too.

seeyes22 (author)orbitup2010-02-21

Sounds good.  HOT griddle is great.  Really rich.  Cream or half and half.  Fresh eggs are aslo awesome.
