If you’re using a griddle, begin to preheat. I use an electric one and I set it for about 350 degrees.
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl. Mash banana in a large measuring cup. Add a little milk and stir them together, then add more milk until the measuring cup reads 1 1/4 cups. (You will use about 3/4 cup of milk). Whisk in oil, eggs, and vanilla. Then whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
Spray your griddle with nonstick cooking spray. Ladle the pancakes one by one onto the griddle. Add 1/2 teaspoon of wheat germ to the top of each pancake and cook until the bottoms are brown. Flip and cook until golden on the bottom. Serve with syrup.
Pancakes can be placed between paper towels and frozen for up to one month. Simply heat in the microwave to unfreeze for a quick breakfast.
