This recipe will work. It was delicious, but I made a lot of modifications (hence 4 stars). My husband did not even use syrup they were so good! First, I substituted 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour + 1/2 cup wheat bran for the oats. Second, I used 1 heaping c leftover sweet potato casserole instead of the plain sweat potato. Third, to combat the thickness of the batter, I used an extra half cup of vanilla yogurt and thinned it a little more with some leftover apple cider. I'm sure apple juice, milk, or water would work fine. The final consistency was similar to traditional pancakes and they cooked fine. For more flavor, double the cinnamon, add a pinch of nutmeg, and try some chopped nuts and raisins.
The yogurt makes the pancakes very heavy. They do not turn out light and fluffy like a pancake should be. The original recipe was extremely thick, and even after thinning it out according to some of the suggestions, I still had trouble getting the "pancakes" to cook all of the way through. You may also want to add some more seasonings, as they end up tasting quite bland if you don't use syrup.
I loved this recipe, but more importantly, my kids loved it! I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain, and it was really yummy. I'm thinking of sneaking other "secret"ingredients in...spinach, anyone???
Mine were really terrific!! I was glad I had read some of the previous reviews and and I think I manage to avoid some of the problems. I (accidentally) added a tsp. baking powder. I did use oil (although Canola, not Olive). I did not use molasses but used 2 tsp. Splenda. Also, my batter sat in the fridge for several hours before cooking. It was insanely thick, but cooked through easily. It satisfied my need for a no flour/no sugar pancake and my kids had something they could put syrup on. Only four stars just beacuse of the modifications, otherwise it would have been five. They were delicious.
I enjoyed these hearty, flavorful pancakes! Without a leavening agent, it was hard to tell when they were ready to flip! Even when they crumbled because I flipped them early, they were wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!
These are incredible!!! Try adding dried cranberries, 1/2 tsp of fresh grated nutmeg and vanilla yogurt (subst. for plain).
2 stars because they definitely need some work. The consistency is very thick and does not cook in the middle easily. The flavor still needs a bit of something to give it a little kick. I will update if I find the right somethings to change/add.
I tried to like these, I really did. I baked the pancakes for 10 minutes at 350*F after frying, to be sure they were cooked through. Overall, they were okay, but it really isn't a secret what they're made of. Too much work for what ended up tasting exactly like sweet potatoes.
