I altered this recipe and it came out perfectly! I used all whole wheat flour, added 1/2 tsp of baking soda, 1 egg, and 3 TB of melted butter. The batter was perfect and the pancakes rose up nicely.
Pancake mix was way too thick, added extra milk but that didn't help much. The pancakes stayed gooey inside, flavor was lacking.
Based on the other reviews I was very excited. My excitement soon turned into disappointment. The only change I made was using Agave Nectar in place of the sugar. I have done that in countless other recipes and had amazing results.
The batter was much too thin and needed to be thickened because it just turned into mush in a pan. So I added 1/2 cup more flour. That worked. Then the insides never cooked all the way and over all it was just a mushy experience.
The flavor was just ok for me. :(
A weekend favorite at our house! Based on previous reviews, I made these changes to the recipe: I split the flour to 1 cup white flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, added 1/2 teas baking soda, reduced the ginger to 1/4 teas ginger, added 1 egg, and only used 2 tablespoons olive oil. Delicious!
I just made these for breakfast this morning. They were amazing. My husband was skeptical of having pumpkin in pancakes and after he tried them he said we better keep this recipe. I had a pumpkin on hand, so I used fresh pumpkin that I pureed. I also was out of ginger, so in place of that I used pumpkin pie spice. They were just delicious - definitely a keeper!!!!!!!
If you have to eat whole wheat these are fine, however, for my family...it's too much wheat (no health issues--just want to eat healthy). So, instead of two cups whole wheat flour I used 1 cup white and 1/2 cup wheat. I also added 1/4 cup no sugar added applesauce and 1 peeled, chopped apple. I just wanted to hide the wheat flavor. :) My batter was thinner as well. I like my version better, but it depends whether or not you have to have whole wheat flour.
The flavor of this was good, but it really must be made in a non-stick pan--I ended up with scrambled pancakes in the end because they stuck so bad! Tasty, but not the effect I was going for. I might try this again, but I'd definitely thin out the batter a lot.
Very good! I added chopped fresh cranberries, dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts to the batter. Good plain w/ a bit of butter or a tiny bit of maple syrup.
I was immediately drawn to this recipe when I saw the list of ingredients. This is just the type of recipe I like to make for my family. I followed it exactly, except for the brown sugar, because mine was like a rock. I'll add it next time. After making a few pancakes, I added in 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to help the pancakes rise a bit. The spices were well-balanced. This is a tasty, healthy pancake my family loved, so I'll be sure to make these again soon.
