"love all the flavors. I can use 1/2 buckwheat, 1/2 whole wheat and family loves them. Also coconut oil instead of butter lets you use less sugar. Really great taste - a hit with fruit and ham - thanks"

"I really enjoyed these pancakes. Like eating very rich spice cake for breakfast, only better for you. I served them with ham and eggs and maple syrup."
