This is my absolute favorite recipe for pancakes. Truly delicious, simple and healthful. Enjoy! The yield is for large pancakes, if you like them small or medium you will get 8-10.

Delicious flavor, I used brown sugar instead of white, and used honey for "syrup." These are a very satisfying pancake - 2 medium pancakes filled me up! Thanks for posting!!! Made for 2009 Spring Pac

Great recipe! I substituted whole wheat (ww) flour for the ww pastry flour and added 1 teaspoon vanilla. They turned out perfect. Next time, I will add some mashed bananas to the recipe. Thanks!

Holy cow these are so good!! I try not to try a lot of new pancake recipes, b/c I already have a pretty good variety, but I loved the flax addition. I tried to find flax in bulk bins at our stores but came up empty--so finally had to buy the Bob's Red Mill brand which was a little pricey but now I have a TON of flax to use up! I used whole wheat flour, threw in a few rolled oats & added 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I cut the recipe down for 1 person). These are indeed filling. I spread some natural PB on top, too, even a few mini choc chips. They were just fabulous--nice & fluffy too as promised. Thank you for sharing!
