I make these when I don't have buttermilk on-hand, mainly because they're featured in my one CL cookbook. The batter is thin even though I use all whole-grain (white wheat) flour, and while the pancakes are heartier than Ihop fluff they are otherwise unsubstantial. And like the other reviewer I've found that the recipe makes 9, not 12. Need to find a better "sweet milk" pancake recipe.
The first time I made these I didn't have any plain yogurt so substituted using low-fat flavoured yogurt. We really enjoy finding chunks of peach or strawberry in the pancakes. They are quite light but the recipe definitely doesn't yield 12 pancakes, but more often 8 - 9. It would also be nice if the nutritional values were updated with correct information.
I used what I had on hand to make these and ended up making the following substitutions: 1/2 cup of brown rice flour for the whole wheat, 1/2 cup of apple sauce for the yogurt and oil, 1 tablespoon of flax meal for half of the cornmeal, and put t.he flour mixture through the food processor to break up the oatmeal (since I only had regular rolled oats and were afraid they wouldn't cook whole.) I used about 1/8 of a cup of batter a pancake and ended up with14 pancakes.
These were amazing! I made some substitutions that made it even healthier and it still tasted great. I subbed 6oz of unsweetened apple sauce for the oil and yogurt, and used skim milk. I also added a chopped apple and some cinnamon. So delicious, I may never buy pancake mix again!
Loved this recipe! Made it with flaxseed instead of cornflower... will be my staple pancake recipe at home from now on. Can anyone tell me if the nutritional facts are accurate.. 3 pancakes for 80 cals and 12g of carbs seems too good to be true.
I hate to disagree but...1st, recipe only made 9 pancakes, 2nd, the nutritional guide is only for 1 pancake as many have stated, 3rd, we didn't get "fluffy" out of the pancakes. Thought they were heavy. And we are avid pancake eaters! There are many 5 star CL pancakes. Try "Hearty Pancakes" and "Double Coconut Pancakes" if you are looking for something really really great.
