"This is a recipe passed down from my husband's family in Wales. We added some ingredients to make it a little more healthy for our kids. Add fruit if you like and top with real maple syrup... yummy!" — nicole p.

1 1/4 cups
unbleached all-purpose flour
whole wheat flour
milk, or as needed
Super yummy! My kids and husband liked them. I substituted 1/4 cup oat bran for some of the white flour, used egg whites only, no yolks, and thinned with water no milk, and no oil-just applesauce. Tasted great, very filling. Will make again for sure. I have mixed up the dry ingredients into plastic bags so I only need to add wet stuff to make, much faster that way on the weekend for a quick breakfast.
These were really tasteless pancakes even after I added vanilla for one batch and cocoa for another. They were too heavy too.
This is a great and healthy alternative to regular pancakes. My two little ones, (29 months and 13 months old), gobbled these up!! Yes, I agree that they are tasteless BUT that is the fun part about these pancakes. My 29 month old liked them with blueberry fruit spread, my 13 month old liked them plain and my husband and I liked them with honey....everyone wins! To thin them out more I just used more milk and the batter was fine. I plan on making these pancakes agin and freezing them for a really quick, delicious and nutrious breakfast!
These were a big hit. My husband is a diabetic & has high blood pressure, so I appreciate that it had no salt or sugar. I used all WW Pastry Flour, halved the recipe, but worked with 2 eggs. I ground up dark brown flax seeds in my coffee grinder and added those in. I totally missed the canola, but we didn't notice. I had added a bit extra applesauce so maybe that took the place. I used more milk because WW seems to soak it up more. I was afraid that I had overbeat my whites because they didn't want to incoorporate for a while. But, the finished product was fantastic! Added walnuts for even more fiber. Great start to the day, thanks for sharing this recipe!
I just love this recipe. Why should I add sugar when most likely I'll be topping them with syrup or something else that is sweet? My kids love them and I know they are getting something that is a healthier alternative to your basic pancake mix. Oh yeah, I also added ground flaxseed meal. Enjoy!
These turned out fluffy and very tasty. The kids (4 & 6) thought they were great too! I did add a tsp of vanilla and made sure the egg whites were well whipped. I loved a healthier alternative!
Delish! I stayed as close as I could to the recipe, though I had to use some vanilla yogurt + water instead of milk (last of the milk was sour--ick!) and white whole wheat flour instead of regular. But the resulting pancakes were delightful! I'll make them again soon.
Two out of my three kids loved these. I really liked these because of how nutritious they were. I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for the recipe.
The only thing I will change in the future is adding flavored low fat yogurt to sweeten them up and give them a more kid friendly flavor without sacrificing their nutrition.
