These have become our family favorite. I use canola oil instead of melted butter and regular apple juice instead of the concentrated to cut down on the fat and sugar a little. We serve with Buttermilk Syrup recipe #16717. Any time I serve these to company they always ask for the recipe. Thanks!

Very tasty and easy to mix. The texture of the batter surprised me a bit - I'm not sure if it was the baking soda or whole wheat. You definitely need to watch how you drop the batter on the pan. Small amounts and spread it out, because it doesn't ooze out like traditional batter. Once I got used to working with it, the pancakes turned out beautifully! I only had a half can of apple juice concentrate, so I subbed the rest of the concentrate amount and water with apple juice. I happily ate a plain pancake without any butter or topping while cooking the rest!

These tasted really good, and I love how healthy they are. The texture leaves a little to be desired, though - they almost seemed gritty to me. My girls gobbled them up anyway! I will definitely try these again.
