  1. These were wonderful! This was very easy to make using a stick blender. I used white whole wheat flour, added 1/2t vanilla and 1/16t cinnamon, and omitted the egg white. They were so delicious that I immediately made a second batch for the freezer. They made the house smell heavenly! I made a simple orange syrup to serve with them by simmering 1/2c sugar, 1/4c water, and 1/4c orange juice for 3 minutes, then let it cool completely. Thanks!
  2. I made two batches of these. In both, I left out the egg white and also the orange zest (no citrus for me.) Also, I put in a splash of vanilla and a tablespoon or so of canola oil. The first batch, I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and fresh ground nutmeg. The second batch, I added chocolate chips. Both were fantastic. I mixed the wet ingredients using my hand mixer -- easier to wash than the blender or food processor. It worked very well. The pancakes were very moist and soft. The guys just devoured them.


<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
