Can believe some of the comments regarding these, but like poached eggs banana pancakes need lots of practice, firstly use a really good and new pan, pointless trying to make these with your grans old knackered fry up cast iron thing, you need a specific banana pancake fryer, only high grade non stick will do the job here, next I’d recommend adding two ingredients not mentioned here, fairly a small cup of oats and secondly whey protein powder. Use plenty of oil and keep heat low as possible so they really cook through before browning, I have thankfully mastered the banana pancake but not without plenty going in the bin. Stay true, you just keep practicing, you can get the hang of it, I know it, you will get better and better, I know it. If you keep practicing, you will get better and better as you do it.

Awful! Didn’t come out like the photo at all! My Sons said they tasted ok, but I think that’s thanks to the syrup! Just looked like a messed up omelette. I think I’ll stick to the unhealthy one rather than eat these, it made me feel depressed while cooking it! There’s healthy and there’s awful. These were awful.

Made as directed with over ripe banana but come out like banana omelette no where near a pancake, not nice at all ☹️

This is only recipe I have ever disliked. Unless you use only teaspoon of mix per pancake they do not hold shape enough to turn in the pan. They end up looking like scrambled eggs with mashed up banana , but are quite tasteless. Will not be making again!

A great way to use up leftover bananas - simple but tasty!

Is the calorie count per pancake or per serving?
17th Feb, 2017
I think per pancake. There are about a 100 calories in one egg and a 100 calories in one whole banana. And nuts also have a lot of calories in them.... Doesn't mean that it's not healthy cause it sure is but it's definitely not a low-calorie breakfast in my opinion since one pancake won't fill you up.

Actually it would be per serving (2 pancakes), as the total calorie count of the ingredients used is ~ 500 kcal.

Easy to make, lovely banana taste (riper bananas will be sweeter and easier to mash). My husband and I were pleasantly surprised. We had ours with golden syrup as we didn't have nuts or berries in.
