Reviews for Better-For-You Buttermilk Pancakes
"I was not impressed at all. Tasted like eating wheat bread for breakfast. No buttermilk flavor at all. I followed recipe to a T and did't like it."
"Excellent pancake with a great taste."
"I loved this recipe, sending to my whole family! Made recipe exactly as written, result; puffy, delicious, healthier pancakes."
"Tip: Freeze extra pancakes in a single layers on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag. On busy mornings just pop them into the microwave or toaster to warm them up!"
"These pancakes are delicious! I even ate the cold leftovers for a snack. I will definitely make them again. I followed the recipe exactly, and the only thing that I would recommend is to cut back on the amount of buttermilk. My batter was way too thin, and I had to add more flour to thicken it up."
