"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."

"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."

"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."
