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

    I love these panckakes! we use them every time we make them!!

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

    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.
