So on to the review. (Disclaimer: for this recipe I used fat free milk, peanut butter, oat flour and coconut oil because that's what I had in my pantry and I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough.)
1. These pancakes have a really hearty texture and mildly sweet taste which is perfect for us. I love that I was full after 2 small pancakes.
2. Next time I will but back on the banana a bit (1.5 bananas for a double batch) because the overall banana taste was too strong for me, but that really is to taste.
3. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that these are REALLY hard to flip. Your best bet in cooking these is to make them silver dollar size not full pancake size. If you make them too big they will fall apart when you flip them. (I used a 1/4c measuring cup and filled it about 2/3 full.) They also don't bubble like a traditional pancake so you just have to check them frequently to know when to flip.
Overall this is a great recipe and I will definitely make it again!

- Heat skillet over medium flame and place 1 tablespoon coconut oil on the skillet to grease it.
