The whole family loves 'em! We keep a bin of the mix in the freezer at the ready. One modification we make is to mash a banana and mix it with a teaspoon of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla and substitute it for the oil and then use a 1/4 cup of water to accommodate. Of course frozen blueberries always make it a treat. Truly a hearty, very filling, flavorful pancake.

Yummy hearty pancakes! Love them with some warmed am on top. I skipped the powdered milk, and just used milk when I made up the pancakes. I'll be putting together a quadruple batch today! Also, ground flax goes rancid very quickly (and the Omega-3's spoil even faster) so I would suggest storing this in the freezer - but that's just my two cents!

Needing to use what was on hand, I had to sub some ingredients. For the 1.5c corn meal, I used 1/2c rye flour, 1/2c AP flour and an extra 1/2c oatmeal (beyond the original 1/2c in the recipe). I used regular WW flour instead of WW pastry flour. The mix then required much more liquid, so I added water until I got the right consistency. With all those changes, this was still a phenomenal recipe. The pancakes are not heavy, like whole grain pancakes sometimes are, but rather were pretty fluffy. (At least the way I made them, they were fairly light.) The 1c finished mix for me made 14 pancakes (about 3" each). Really glad I have 3 more recipes' worth in the freezer now!

This is a great mix and makes a very hearty pancake. I buy flax seed already ground into meal so I didn't have to do that step. I got 5 pancakes out of a batch.
