    Yummy! Try a sugar-fre syrup (Davinci or Torino) instead of the spenda. Makes it nice and moist. I'm mixing up a week's worth of the dry ingredients so I can just scoop it every day :) - 8/19/07

    I made this a couple of times now. I use 1 1/2 tbs of applesauce instead of the oil and just the egg whites. Sometimes I add some blueberries. It is so moist and filling. One of my favorites! - 4/11/08

    This is a brilliant recipe that is amazingly flexible. It might be a Laura Olson invention, but it's been around a while on the low carb boards. See my recipe submissions for variations on this, including molten chocolate, blueberry, etc. - 3/14/10

    I use sour cream instead of butter or olive oil, and use either sugar free coffee flavors or flavored stevia. It may take more than a minute but is great...also make in a cereal bowl, slice and use syrup for pancakes ;-) - 10/22/12

    An awesome recipe that can be manipulated in so many ways! Can be as healthy - or unhealthy - as you please! Either way, it is a great source of fiber and protein. Instead of olive oil, I use 1.5 T unsweetened applesauce for a more muffin-like texture, and 1 T applesauce for bread-like texture. - 5/17/12

    Wow, this made a fantastic pancake. I forgot the cinnamon and used 1 tsp of SF maple syrup in the batter. I let the batter rest for a couple of minutes and it made one very large pancake. Topped it with more maple syrup. This is so easy and so good!!! - 3/8/10

  • This is a great go-to recipe that I've used over the years, and there are so many ways to enjoy it. I omit the olive oil and sweetner and use 1 egg white. It is absolutely delicious with blueberries or topped off with strawberries and a banana. Yum! - 4/2/12

  • I Loved the idea - while trying to omit aspertain from my diet I omitted the sugar / sugar substitute and the cinnamon & went savory. I added rosemary, salt, white pepper, dry mustard, and grated parmesian cheese. nuking on a large plate enables it to be used as a wrap for a sandwich. - 1/23/12

  • Fits my morning needs perfectly; quick, easy, tasty and if I don't have family sponging tastes off of me it fills me perfectly. I added extra Splenda (cuz I love sweet), but, I may try the applesauce for a more moist texture. - 3/24/11

  • Second time around trying this recipe I added just a little cloves and no olive oil. ... My microwave took a minute and 45 seconds to get it right and I cooked them in a silicone muffin pan. Exceptional. - 11/4/09

  • Sounds interesting- And that fiber is great. I wonder what would happen if you made it in toaster oven on a tray. Would you have a cookie? Hmm - 8/16/09

  • Found this yesterday, tried it this morning. OMG Yummy!! Like a buckwheat pancake. A little sugar free maple syrup and we're off! I have a ton of ideas for "spicing" this one up. Anyone thought of making slices and toasting???

  • I added raisins once, and that was really good. Another day I added 1 tablespoon cinnamon flavored sugar free syrup.. yum. I'd like to try to stop the microwave at 1/2 the baking time and sprinkle on something crunchy like granola - but without adding carbs. I'm thinking...... - 1/3/08
