"Love this recipe. This is the only pancake recipe I use now and have made them a couple dozen times now. I make half the recipe and use vanilla yogurt. These are so good, we even eat them plain (no syrup or toppings)."

"Very good with a unique flavor that is unlike everyday pancakes. I followed recipe to the T and made them more on the thick side with medium heat for 4 to5 mins on each side. Will make again with add-ins :)"

"Perfect! Wouldn't change a thing. I read some of the other reviews and it seems like those that used Greek yogurt had issues. The recipe doesn't call for Greek yogurt. I would totally recommend this recipe to anyone wanting to make a great fluffy, light and flavorful pancake. I used Mountain High plain yogurt. I love that it was quick to mix together without a long list of ingredients. Thanks for the great recipe."

"I used banana Greek yogurt so I'm not sure how much that effected it. The batter was super thick so I added more water. I think I'd use milk next time. The texture was chewy than I like for pancakes. I added dark chocolate chips, which never make anything taste bad."

"Yuck :( I was really looking forward to these, as I have used other pancake recipes using Greek yogurt and usually have pretty good results! The batter was too thick and they were tasteless and chewy. I would definitely use milk instead of water next time and double the amount of it. Maybe add some vanilla extract and an extra T of sugar."

"These were excellent! I used 1/2 cup of almond/coconut milk in place of the water & vanilla greek yogurt... yum!"

MY REVIEW

"Instead of 2 cups of All Purpose Flour, I used 1 cup All Purpose & 1 Cup White Whole Wheat. I substituted the water with Milk. I agree the batter is very thick. I kept adding more milk to make it thinner, but it's still a very thick batter. I would say I probably added a little over a 1/2 cup of milk total. Also, I cut down half the sugar and only used 1 Tbsp of sugar. They were fantastic. As one reviewer stated, the batter is so thick that it won't bubble, so you have to flip them fairly early in the cooking process. THEN... this is a key... you have to flatten them on the griddle after you flip them. This allows them to cook more evenly. I flipped mine a few times, flattening them with each flip to insure even cooking throughout the pancake. I topped mine with banana slices, sliced almonds & maple syrup. Very tasty and moist. Thank you for sharing. I'll make these again."

"As someone who absolutely LOVES pancakes I must say that these were excellent! The batter was a bit thick so I simply added a bit more milk (which I used in place of water). Also, instead of plain yogurt I used raspberry Chobani Greek Yogurt that had bits of dark chocolate mixed in. I'm definitely going to have fun playing around with different yogurt flavors."
