    These pancakes were flavorful. The blueberries really shine through. However, I thought the pancakes were slightly tough. They were easy to make and my kids enjoyed adding their own blueberries.

    This was a HUGE winner for us. These cooked up nicely - light and fluffy. A couple changes I made - I used my all-purpose gluten-free flour blend and used olive oil instead of canola. Very simple and delicious!

    Excellent. Might use a few more blueberries for the pancakes. Almost did not have enough. Absolutely delicious and we will have again. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

    2.5 stars; a mediocre recipe. It would be fluffier if the eggs whites were whipped before folding into the batter. The taste of okay.

    Waste of time and ingredients. Batter was way too thin. I will not be using this recipe again.

    We make these all the time, my family loves them!!! I make the batter and drop frozen blueberries on top on the griddle since not everyone in my family likes the blueberries...they are awesome!!

    Very good- light smooth texture. Both my 2 year old and my husband asked me to make it again!
