These were awful. My husband took a bite and didn't want to take another. My kids suffered through it but only with copious amounts of blueberry sauce. I think this recipe might make a good bran muffin recipe, but as pancakes, they were pretty inedible. Very dry, tasteless. I followed the recipe exactly except added a little cinnamon.

I have made these several times in the past 2 years and we enjoy them every time too! Great with syrup or fruit topping and whip cream. These are one of my favorite pancakes and we will continue to add these in with our weekend breakfasts for years to come. Thanks - Dave

I adored these pancakes. I used whole wheat flour for the white flour, rolled oats for the wheat germ (I had none but hoped oats would give something of a "nutty" taste!) & added a few tbsp of oat flour. I didn't use any sugar or oil, used a whole egg white & skim milk. I also added a bit of cinnamon. they were really fluffy & thick--and stood up well to natural PB & sliced bananas. Topped w/ sugar free syrup, I was full for hours! thank u for sharing!
