    This was an AWESOME pancake recipe. I didn't have rye flour so used 1 cup of whole wheat flour instead. I also added a few tablespoons of flaxseed oil and used walnuts instead of pecans. The batter was very thick so ended up using 1 cup of soy milk and 1 cup of water. They came out perfect, moist and delicious! Thanks for the recipe!  -  05 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow, absolutely fantastic. Light and fluffy, tasty, and satisfying in a way I never thought "healthy" pancakes could be. I will definitely make this again, and probably soon. I didn't have rye flour, so I just used whole wheat, and I used sunflower seeds instead of pecans. I also added two sliced bananas, although apple cubes would be good too. I needed to add another 1/4c - 1/2c of liquid, though, as it was more like dough than batter.  -  03 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't have rye or soy flour, so I used whole grain instead. After adding in the liquids, I found it a bit too thin, so I mixed in half a banana to thicken it up a bit. Turned out really great and amazingly fluffy!  -  05 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
