    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.

    Just tried these pancakes and they are perfect for my husband and I. Just for the fun of it, I topped with a little spread of cranberry goat cheese. This is a keeper for my household and we are not diabetics....

    Made these this morning. They were fine. I had no problems..no sticking, looked like pancakes but of course, tasted a bit more bland than the pancakes we are used to. Welcome to the world of diabetes. I added cinnamon to to the mix and I topped with Vanilla yogurt and Blueberries. The yogurt gave the moisture that was lacking due to no syrup and it masked the blandness of the pancakes. Next time, I will add pumpkin spice .

    Incredible outcome!!! I just made this and paired it with cauliflower hash, and blueberry sauce and it worked PERFECTLY for my meal plan, AND was absolutely delicious!!! If I didn’t know better, I would think this was all junk food, because it was just that good! Definitely recommend! Super easy! I recommend blending the batter though for just a few seconds for a smoother consistency and fluffier pancakes.
