These are excellent and quite heart healthy. Just to cut down on the saturated fats, cholesterol, and carbs even more I used 1/4 c egg whites (beat 1/8c) and substituted 1t stevia for the brown sugar. Saturated fat drops to 1.2g for 2 pancakes, 7.5mg cholesterol, and 25.5g carbs.

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.

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!!
