These pancakes were inspired by the popular Morning Glory muffins. They are fluffy and delicious without all the oil, but they have the same great carrot, fruit and nut flavors.— Kurt Wait, Redwood City, California

"Tried these this morning because I enjoy muffins of the same name. I followed the recipe as written and started by frying two. The batter needed some spice so I added 1t of cinnamon and 1/4t cloves (Applepie spice would work also) which improved the flavor. I also added about 1/4 cup more buttermilk to thin the remainder batter slightlly. Don't plan to whip this baby out in five-minutes. It would be enjoyable as a company breakfast by doubling without much risk of failure."

"These were great! I use blood orange infused olive oil for the oil, and Chef Brads Wonder Flour (brown rice, spelt, barley mix) for the wheat flour. Next time I will try switching out the buttermilk and use plain greek yogurt, thinned with a little milk, to kick up the protein even higher. Thanks for the wonderful recipe."

"It sounds great except for the use of Canola oil, which is known to be one of the most unhealthy oils to use. Google it for more information...when I make banana bread I use applesauce in place of oil, which works fine....but there are many healthy oils that could be used....just do a little research..."
