    These are very good if you're looking for a healthier alternative to regular pancakes. Or if you are just tired of r regular pancakes and want something more interesting. Mine were thick and perfect pancake texture. The only change I made was using sugar instead of Splenda. I didn't have the topping stuff, so my review is just for the pancakes. Most people will probably put their favorite pancake toppings on them anyway. Though, I do think the berries and yogurt would be really good.  -  03 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were delicious and so pretty! I couldn't find quinoa flour but found quinoa 'flakes' so used that. This caused the pancakes to be a bit crispy on the outside so use flour if you can find it. I added chopped walnuts to mine because I love that crunch in my pancakes and also topped them with extra maple syrup for my overactive sweet tooth. Outstanding and so nutritious! All 3 of us wanted seconds and I ran out of batter and berries too soon.  -  15 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful dense pancakes! I love the raspberry topping with the yogurt! Cinnamon adds a great touch, too!  -  21 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
