These were a great alternative to carb-loaded regular pancakes. We are trying to limit our white sugar/processed foods and this recipe was perfect. I used Bob's Red Mill brand Almond Meal instead of Trader Joe's. I prefer TJ's brand is a better substitute for breadcrumbs (i.e. chicken cutlets) due to it's consistency. I used half a banana and found that making them small (like silver dollar pancakes) and fairly thin was helpful in ensuring they cooked all the way through. My picky 2.5 year olds ate them up!
