    I substituted all whole wheat flour (not all purpose on hand), and I used unsweetened soy milk and unsweetened applesauce. Delicious! I'll definitely make this again! - 3/23/08

    This recipe was great! I doubled the recipe. I used 1 3/4c white ww since I was out of ww, then 1/4c wheat germ and a T of ground flax. I used two whole eggs, added nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. Instead of milk I used Kefir but used probably closer to 2 cups for a thinner batter. I got 20 pancakes. - 8/14/10

    These were very good! I expected them to be pretty 'dense' but they were actually quite light and fluffy. They do taste kind of bland, so adding cinnamon, nutmeg, and/or vanilla is a good choice. Otherwise serving them w/ fruit compote is a good option as well. Overall, excellent recipe! - 8/15/10

  • This is a terrific recipe, but a little bland to eat alone. I added 1 tsp vanilla, a packet of splenda, plus 1T of milled flaxseed, and a little water to make it thinner. Next time i will just use all whole wheat flour as some suggested. So so yummy. I actually got exactly 10 pancakes. - 7/12/11

  • I used 1 ripe mashed banana because I didn't have apple sauce, and used almond milk. I also added 1tsp cinnamon and 1tsp of vanilla. Although the pancakes didn't come out very fluffy like regular pancakes, they were still thick and very moist. Had great flavour too. I will be making these again. - 6/8/11

  • I too used only whole wheat flour and I added it gradually so it didn't come out too thick. I think in total it was just under a cup to reach the perfect consistency. I loved them! - 5/15/11

  • I thought these were pretty good. It felt good using healthy ingredients. However, I didn't get 5 servings out of the batter by using the 1/4 cup as a measure for each pancake. Maybe could have used more liquid. If you end up with less servings, make sure you adjust the calories in your tracker! - 7/5/10

  • very fluffy. i could tell they would've had good texture if i han't used my homemade applesauce - too chunky, makes them seem undercooked when they're really not. i'm looking forward to trying this recipe with regular applesauce. mine was really good on top, though, with a dollop of yogurt. :) - 6/29/10
