    These were good and hearty, like eating a bowl of oatmeal, just in a pancake. I added a tsp of Stevia and a pinch of salt based on the previous review. These would also be good with the addition of protein powder for an additional boost as well. I will definitely add this to my pancake recipe inventory!

    I love this recipe, it was perfect and delicious but I would have added a little Splenda to the recipe, I know pancakes aren't usually sweet because most of the time you add syrup or fruit but I think just a little bit of sugar would give them a little sweetness. But they are good either way, I'm going to be making this my favorite pancake recipe.

    I absolutely love these. I love pancakes and being diabetic i felt limited but these were a great alternative

    Just made these for the first time and LOVED them. I didn't have pecans so I added some sunflower seeds. Also I added 1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon and a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I also let my batter rest 5 mins before I cooked the pancakes to let more of the liquid absorb. They turned out moist and yummy! Will be making them again.

    I tried these this morning, They were very filling but the taste was so very bland for me, I would have been better off eating the oatmeal.I will not make these anymore,

    I loved this recipe because it catered to all my health needs. Since I am watching my sugar, cholesterol and carb intake, I modified the recipe. Instead of using the whole egg, I used the just the egg whites. Since I happened to be lactose intolerant, I used Almond Milk instead of Skim Milk. I also used Earth Balance Soy Free buttery spread instead of Canola Oil. The pancakes were really filling and I just eat them as a snack. I will definitely make these again.
