I too wondered about the nutritional values, but since there are no added fats, I figured it couldn’t be too bad. They’re very healthy actually. Makes 11- 12 pancakes, and has 80 calories per pancake. I used unsweetened soymilk, but skim milk has a similar caloric value. Here’s a link to a website that analyzed the recipe: http://caloriecount.about.com/banana-oat-bran-pancakes-waffles-recipe-r1123328

Probably because it’s a recipe. You know, like the ones your grandma had on a 3×5 index card? Those didn’t have nutritional info either.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
