Reviews forFlaxseed Oatmeal Pancakes
"I love pancakes and I’m always trying “healthy” recipes. This is one of the best! I don’t have a beater so I added the whole egg with the wet ingredients, so they’re probably more dense than if I had added the egg white separately, but still great! Will definitely make again!Also- they’re very filling. I had 3 and I’m full (normally eat a lot more than that lol). 2 would be perfect paired with fruit and bacon :)"
"I made this into a waffle mix by adding 1-2 more Tbsp. of oil. I used coconut oil. My (70-yr-old) friend said these are the best waffles he's ever eaten!! Light, fluffy, and delicious!!!"
"My husband says he believes these are the BEST pancakes he's ever eaten! Plus, we're trying to eat healthy, so- it's a "win-win"! I like mine topped with honey and walnuts."
"Excellent pancake, love the healthy addition of flaxseed! I added blueberries."
"These were fantastic! I have tried several healthy versions of pancakes and this one is the winner!"
"YUM! Great texture and taste. I served them with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and fresh mixed berries on top"
"Surprisingly tasty spread with cream cheese and syrup. Double the recipe to feed more than 2 though."
"These were sooo good, my 20 month old couldn't eat enough (literally I had to cut her off). I also ground up the flax seeds, used old fashioned oats, and I realized halfway into the recipe I was out of eggs and it turned out perfect and delicious."
"This is one of the best pancake recipes I've make in a long time. Will make again and again. I put apple syrup and strawberries on top. Yum!!"
"3/2011 These have a perfect flavor. I added some frozen blueberries once they were on the griddle and it was a perfect addition!! Update 2/23/14 I made this recipe again today! But with out the blueberries! I just love TOH recipes. It was funny I went to review this recipe and saw that I have but in 2011. This just goes to show how much I love making their recipes, that i have made so many...I forgot which ones I make after awhile."
