I used honey instead of syrup but it was not sweet enough with 1 tablespoon so I added an tablespoon of honey and entire banana to make it sweet enough I also added 2 teaspoons of vanilla. It was delicious this way.

This is a quick recipe, however the pancakes turned out a little dry. I think since most other reviewers added more syrup or honey, that probably helped with it. I would definitely add a teaspoon of vanilla next time and maybe even half a tsp baking soda.

These were quick and easy and great starter recipe for those looking for a gluten free/paleo pancake alternative. I halved the recipe and only used a pinch of salt. I think more would have been too much. Vanilla extract would be a nice addition and I will try that the next time I make them.

This was an easy, quick recipe for making almond flour pancakes. I halved it, exactly, because I made them just for myself. I did sub honey for the maple syrup (I don't use syrup on mine, I had them with a pear/apple butter). The one big change I would make is to omit, or switch to just a pinch, of salt. Following the recipe, I found them to be too salty. I would probably add almond or vanilla extract in the future as well. Good consistency, though, and a good base for someone who has little experience cooking with alternative flours!

I used honey and a banana instead of maple syrup. Doubled the batch to feed 4. I think next time I'll use almond milk instead of water. Delish!!

Simple and quick. I was able to make 1/2 the recipe quickly to enjoy eating pancakes along with my family (who cook up the non gluten free kind). I adjusted with a pinch of salt and used a little raw honey with blueberries when having bites here and there. Very tasty and filing. The 1/2 recipe made 3 small pancakes and I had 2 (saving one as a mid day snack vs nuts today). They are high in calories/fat to eat all 3 in one sitting if you are watching intake there.

Very moist, quite dense. Filling, tasty, and I'll make them again for sure. Be sure to mix very well or else you'll have spots of scrambled egg.

I give this recipe five stars because of its tremendous value in being simple, gluten-free, and low-carb (if you sub for the syrup). The recipe does work, and the pancakes do taste good. I left out the sweetener and it probably really needs some. I will add stevia next time. Also I would add vanilla or almond extract next time as others suggested. Thank you Allie!
