This recipe sounds great.... but I will substitute whole wheat flour for the little bit of pancake mix it calls for, as I dont buy any packaged mixes.

I can't believe you guys are still on the low-fat band wagon. Most canola oil is genetically modified. Do you know what "canola" is? It stands for The Canada Oil Company and is in almost all processed food because it is cheap.

I have found an even better pancake recipe, 1/2 oats, 1/2 of LF cottage cheese, and 1/2 cup of egg whites, blend all together in a magic bullet or blender under well blended. (You can add wheat germ, cinnamon to the batter if you wish). Use a nonstick pan and spray with Pam, cook as you would a regular pancake. I also but up some strawberries, microwave them for 30seconds and then pour on top of the pancake. The pancake taste just like a regular pancake if not better.

These recipes sound wonderful, but there is no way to print them without printing out the whole page. For my printer that means two pages of paper.

Mine were delicious and were not dry at all! I guess if you overcook them, they will be dry.

Doesn't sound very appetizing to me. I get up at 4 a.m. and have to be to work an hour away, have to feed livestock before I leave. It seems it would take too much time. Don't you have anything faster?

My husband hates any kind of pancake but loves these! I add a little more apple and cinnamon which helps the taste.

These were too dry and had no flavor. Maybe a teaspoon of vanilla would make them better? Unfortunately, I don't think that I'll make them again.
