"I think the amount of flour is low, these pancakes did not cook well. I had to throw out the batch and mixed the rest of the batter with a regular bisquick batter and then the pancakes were very good."

"Great way to get my kids to eat healthier! I did use a little more milk so the pancakes didn't turn out too thick."

"Added 1/4 c sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Sprinkled with chocolate chips before flipping. Didn't have any wheat germ, turned out fine without it."

"Delicious & hearty but I doubled the milk to make them easier to cook & not quite so heavy. I also used ground flax instead of wheat germ."

"The kids loved them! They are very thick, mine didn't quite look like the picture. Definately cook on a lower temp to make sure the inside is cooked through."

"I made one substitution - ground flax seed for the wheat germ - but I don't think that was the cause of the bland flavor. I suspect that more cinnamon and some allspice would help give them that essence of pumpkin pie I was hoping for. I also found them very difficult to cook through despite a reduction of heat and extended time on the griddle."

"My twelve year old son and I loved these pancakes! They were so tasty. I omitted the wheat germ since I do not like it. I also found that unlike regular pancakes it works better to cook these on a lower temperature so that the middle has a chance to cook completely. This recipe made it to the rotation!"

"These were great. We topped with whipped cream cheese and a light drizzle of syrup. I'll keep this in mind for when I need to use pumpkin (and sneak in some veggies!)"
