The whole wheat flavor really comes through in these hearty pancakes. They taste great with a light touch of maple syrup. —Kerry Blondheim, Denmark, Wisconsin

"I used the advice of previous reviewers and shredded the apple, added apple pie spice and I subbed out the oil and used applesauce. These were okay with syrup but we don't normally use syrup so when we tasted them plain, they were very bland, heavy and had a thick flavor to them. Honestly, I won't make them again. I will, however, add the apples and walnuts to my own pancake batter because I love the idea of that!"

"This is a requested recipe for return guests at our B&B. I do not care for the texture of plain pancakes. The apples and nuts, both chopped fine, make these wonderful."

"I love the apples, but they should be shredded. I guess I'm just a regular pancake person. This was a little too sweet for my tastebuds, but I can see where this recipe would be perfect to serve to guests who enjoy sweets!"
