Tips on banana slices in pancakes

Is there a good way to do this? While I like the idea of roasting bananas and mixing them into the batter, I really want to include slices as well for the variety of texture. Adding dollops of batter on top of the banana seems conceptually like a good Idea, but I've never had much success with it.
What I'd like to avoid is the bananas sticking to the pan, or falling out of the pancake.

I've put pancake batter on a griddle, placed banana slices on the pancakes, and then drizzled on a little more batter over the slices with pretty good success. I'll admit, though, I really dig the concept of caramelized (or roasted) bananas in pancakes in addition to (or instead of) the fresh slices.

Forgot to add: drizzling a little batter over the banana slices helps hold them in the pancake and creates a slight barrier between the slices and the pan when you flip them (but leaving a little banana exposed means you get some caramelization, mmm)

I second what Rachel S says. I also have blended the banana right into the pancake batter with success also.
