I tried this recipe for the first time this morning, and I absolutely love it! I'm an incorrigible tweaker, so I added a teaspoon or so of cinnamon (could have added more, to be honest), and a teaspoon or so of extra sugar. I also did what the last reviewer suggested, which was to add a bit extra milk, as the batter is very thick. Even so, I had to cook them on very low heat so they would cook all the way through. But these are just picky points. This is a great recipe that I'm sure I'll use again and again.
Fabulous!! Some of the best pancakes I've ever had, and healthy, too. Followed the recipe exactly, except that I found the batter to be very thick, so I added about 2 tablespoons skim milk. These would also be great with blueberries, bananas, or pecans -- the possibilies are endless!
