"Simple, and easy recipe!!! I used key lime Greek Yogurt and added some cinnamon, and cut the recipe in half, as I was cooking only for myself, but the pancakes were light, fluffy, and tasted FANTASTIC!!!"

"I used vanilla yogurt and added 2 tbsps of melted butter and it was the fluffiest and tastiest pancakes we've had. Yummy!"

"Heavy, rubbery, protein-y, and strange. Just doesn't go with syrup. If I made these again, I would most likely nix the sugar and syrup, add a little diced onion and some shredded potato (or cauliflower), and serve them with either ketchup or maybe with hummus or something."

"Amazing, I wouldn't change a thing. I'm going to experiment with whole wheat flour"

"Love this recipe. This is the only pancake recipe I use now and have made them a couple dozen times now. I make half the recipe and use vanilla yogurt. These are so good, we even eat them plain (no syrup or toppings)."

"Very good with a unique flavor that is unlike everyday pancakes. I followed recipe to the T and made them more on the thick side with medium heat for 4 to5 mins on each side. Will make again with add-ins :)"

"Perfect! Wouldn't change a thing. I read some of the other reviews and it seems like those that used Greek yogurt had issues. The recipe doesn't call for Greek yogurt. I would totally recommend this recipe to anyone wanting to make a great fluffy, light and flavorful pancake. I used Mountain High plain yogurt. I love that it was quick to mix together without a long list of ingredients. Thanks for the great recipe."

"I used banana Greek yogurt so I'm not sure how much that effected it. The batter was super thick so I added more water. I think I'd use milk next time. The texture was chewy than I like for pancakes. I added dark chocolate chips, which never make anything taste bad."

"Yuck :( I was really looking forward to these, as I have used other pancake recipes using Greek yogurt and usually have pretty good results! The batter was too thick and they were tasteless and chewy. I would definitely use milk instead of water next time and double the amount of it. Maybe add some vanilla extract and an extra T of sugar."

"These were excellent! I used 1/2 cup of almond/coconut milk in place of the water & vanilla greek yogurt... yum!"
