There were great! Even my pickiest 6-year-old liked them (with sugar syrup, not blackberries). They were also very filling. I added a little more pancake mix than the recipe called for (about a handful) because it looked too runny. I didn't have wheat germ, so I substituted oat bran, and I didn't have walnut oil so I just used EVOO. When I made the first batch the bananas kept falling off into the skillet, so the next time I put them on earlier and that seemed to do the trick.
