I'd rate these 4.5 if I could. My family loves pancakes, but I feel a *little bit* guilty feeding them regular ones due to the processed flour, etc. I can feel a bit better about these. I've made them as written (cutting the salt as suggested) and they're very good. With a few tweaks, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. First, I substitute either organic brown sugar or organic molasses for the white sugar (adding the molasses to the wet ingredients). These sweeteners up the flavor quite a bit. I've also used agave nectar (a low glycemic sweetener), but the flavor isn't very intense. I also use melted canola margarine instead of oil. Again, it just adds another layer of flavor. I increase the vanilla, too. Finally, I add cinnamon to the dry ingredients--about a half teaspoon. The result is fluffy, light, flavorful pancakes that everyone inhales. Oh, sometimes I add a couple tablespoons of flaxseed, cuz they have a nice nutty flavor, and sometimes I'll use egg substitute, to lower the fat. Go ahead and try these. They really are good, and good for you. :o)
