I have to agree with the rest of the reviews that say, these pancakes are tasteless! I am a professional baker and I don't think my dogs would even eat these! If it hadn't been for the berry toppings and whipped cream, I would have trashed these, the berries made them a little more palatable! I found a recipe years ago probably back in the 90's in my taste of home magazine for some fat free oatmeal applesauce pancakes that were delish; sad I cant seem to find that recipe anymore. :(
We are a healthy pancake family so when I saw this I was excited to try it. My kids would not eat them, I threw mine out first bite, and I did not dare feed to my husband lol. Taste really bad, no flavor even with syrup.
The pancakes are ok, will modify a bit more next time. I added a tablespoon of mini chocolate chips to the top of my 2 pancakes and it was pretty good. Next time will add some cinnamon to the mix. My biggest complaint is the calories must be wrong. When I put the receipe into a calorie tracking app I use, it showed the calories at 208 for 2 pancakes. Misprint perhaps?
These are a healthy & hearty way to start the day! I made a few changes to increase their nutritional value & add some flavor. I added 1/4 c.ground flax meal & 1/4 c chopped walnuts for fiber & healthy omega-3s. I added 1 t cinnamon, 1/4 t nutmeg & 1 t pure vanilla extract for extra flavor. I increased the applesauce to 1/4 c & used 2 whole eggs instead of 4 egg whites.
Loved how these combined light and fluffy with the texture and heartiness of the oats, but was disappointed in the lack of flavor. With the addition of a scant 1/2 tab. of sugar, some cinnamon and a dash of vanilla, however, they turned out great.
