    1. Haha! Sounds like my husband!…then, I try to feed him turkey bacon and he’s like, ‘where’s the REAL stuff??’ 🙂

  1. My husband made me these for Valentine’s Day and they were great! I tried to find the healthiest (because that’s what I wanted) and the most simple (because his kitchen skills are a little limited) recipe I could find. I’ll definitely make them soon but I’ll add some berries to the batter to add some sweetness. 🙂

    1. Aww, I’m so glad! Yeah, my husband sounds a lot like your husband. Luckily these are simple enough for those not-so-kitchen-savy husbands. 😀 Berries sound like a wonderful addition too!

      1. This is kind of funny. I just searched my Google Reader for whole wheat pancakes and found this recipe, read it, and thought, “Ooh! I have to try these!” and then I found my comment from a year and a half ago. So, since there is an extremely reliable review on here (hehe… :D) I’ll be making these tomorrow because I don’t feel like making my normal mix. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  2. I made these as a surprise for my boyfriend on a Sunday morning. I did add some turkey bacon on the side :).
    This receipe was perfect, because we’re both dieting, and it was just the thing we needed to start off our Sunday morning!
    And besides what man doesn’t like breakfast in bed?

  3. I made these this morning and they were delicious!! So easy, and healthy! I put blueberries in mine because blueberry pancakes are my favorite and they turned out so yummy. Thanks for sharing and can’t wait to make these again 🙂

    1. What a great addition with the blueberries! That’s my son’s favorite, too. 😀 Thank you so much for letting me know how you liked it! Have a wonderful week!
