Reviews for Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes
My husband and I both really enjoyed these! The changes I made: I subbed 1/4 cup white flour for wheat; I added some vanilla as per other reviewers' suggestions; I eye-balled how many blueberries to add; I used 3/4 tbs sugar instead of sweetener Will definitely make this recipe again.
Wonderful! I used vanilla soy milk for less fat and sodium, and didn't have any fresh blueberries, so I put in some cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I don't really like maple syrup too much, so finding a pancake that I can eat without syrup is important. These did it! I bet you can even add some juice of berries, orange, or other fruit instead of adding more milk to sweeten it more; I'm doing that next time. Love it!
I had some trouble with this one, but I also added flax which I think made it too thick. I did add extra milk which helped, but it was still pretty think. I also just wiped the skillet with olive oil and I don't think I used enough because they started to kind of burn at the end. I also made the drops too big I think because they turned out huge. I'm a newish cook so I think this is why all the trouble. Anyway, give it a try it's still good.
Great recipe. I use applesauce instead of sugar. Super tasty. Also, whip the egg whites(after removing yolks), it adds that extra bit of fluffiness!
Very yummy but way too thick for my taste. I added a couple tablespoons of extra milk but it still neded more.
Best healthy pancake recipe out there! I don't like to use artificial anything when I am cooking so I just used regular sugar. These pancakes were so moist and delicious! Thanks for sharing!
Heaven knows what we messed up the first time, but we gave these another try and they came out much, much better. We really, really, really, really liked them! The recipe is excellent.
These were good. I added a little bit of vanilla extract, because that's how my mom always made pancakes. We used these without fruit, just because we didn't have any. I also definitely needed more milk. Probably close to a 1/4 or 1/3 of a cup more.
These pancakes are wonderful!!! Hubby loved it, kids loved it and I love it!! I did alter it just a little, I used soy milk instead of regular and a little bit of agave nectar instead of artificial sweetener. I usually make pancakes at least once a week, this will definitely be my go to pancake recipe. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!!
My husband and I loved these! We added a little extra milk and they were still very fluffy.
These were delicious!! I used fresh strawberries instead of blueberries, which I highly recommend. Also, I halved the recipe (but still used a whole egg; I also used only whole wheat flour. These cakes were moist, tender, and perfect!
Very good! My three kids love blueberry pancakes, but they are very picky eaters and I was worried that they would reject these due to the whole wheat. No need to worry! Even one of my sons - who eats them plain (no butter or syrup) ate heartily!
These turned out great! I did substitute 1 1/2 Tbsp real maple syrup for the artificial sweetener. I think the maple syrup helped keep the pancakes moist. Also added a splash more milk and subbed frozen strawberries for the blueberries.
I've tried several whole wheat pancake recipes, often with poor results - too doughy, too rubbery etc. but these turn out nice and fluffy, like regular pancakes only much healthier! I use frozen blueberries which is fine, just make sure to take them out of the freezer and let them thaw while you're making the pancake batter!
Exellent! I didn't use artificial sweetener, as I was looking for a more "natural" recipe - so added 2tbsp of brown sugar instead. Light, fluffy and... Delicious!
Very good for being completely whole wheat, and very filling. Also so simple!
I love this recipe. I used the conversion setting to reduce it down to one serving, and I can make these for myself when I have time on the weekends. A few changes though--I typically add in 1-2 tbs of wheat germ and 1-2 tbs of Bob's Red Mill 5-grain Rolled Cereal (similar to oatmeal, but with whole wheat, rye, oats, flaxseed, barley, and triticale). And the great thing about these pancakes is the recipe is so basic you can add in any other flavorings you're in the mood for too--if I don't have blueberries on hand, I'll add in cinnamon and vanilla extract, or pumpkin, or whatever else I have handy.
These were great, but I altered the recipe a bit. I used Skim Milk, used 1/2 tbs no-cal sweetener, 1/2 tbs light brown sugar, and added nutmeg and cinnamon to the flour and baking powder. I also recommend adding the bluberries to the pancakes individually once they are on the skillet. If you make 12 pancakes "my way", there are 130.6 calories for every 2.
I absolutely enjoyed these pancakes, the kids were not crazy about them but I liked them a lot!
This was wonderful! I am super creative, but I need a solid starting point, so I used this (so excited it doesn't have butter or oil!). I added some oatmeal and cinnamon and used soy milk instead. I topped them with homemade granola and a bit of honey. I can't wait to make them again!!!
Great WW pancakes! I was out of blue berries so I added a couple TBSP of oil to keep them moist and cinn and vanilla for taste. Nice and fluffy (which is difficult with WW sometimes). Excited to add some fruit next time.
I made the batter for this the night before, so all I had to do this morning was spoon it on the griddle. I used buttermilk and added a tsp. of vanilla. Very good. I served this with Cinnamon Cream Syrup also from this site. It went well with these pancakes.
the pancakes were really good they weren't super moist but if you wanted them more moist i would add more milk but i loved them:)
Delicious! I heeded advice from everyone else and added just a bit more milk and 2 tbs. sugar instead of the artificial sweetener, also subsituted blueberries for chocolate chips (it's what we had on hand) and presto! They were fantastic and my boyfriend admits now that whole wheat is definately the way to go. And still was around 273 calories per serving, which is still awesome!
Good recipe! I've just recently started using whole wheat in recipes, and was glad to have found this one.
I used a blend of white and whole wheat flour because my Hubby is afraid to eat healthy! They were very dense, but flavorful! I didn't have blueberries, so I added vanilla and sugar for flavoring. Be sure to add a bit of extra water.
A good recipe if you're looking for a healthy pancake but my family didnt wow over it.
This is a very simple & wonderful recipe! I make a batch of these every other week for my son! I do skip the artificial sweetner & use a tablespoon or two of honey instead. Yum!
2.5 stars. I thought that for a 4.5 star recipe, these pancakes would taste better than your run of the mill whole wheat pancake...at least different. I was disappointed but will concede that these were very fluffy and that I did not have any problems with undercooked batter around my store bought fresh blueberries. I would be willing to sacrifice calories and nutrition for better tasting pancakes, since pancakes are an indulgence for me.
This is the best pancake recipe! Made them this morning. Definitely a keeper!
Definitly added more milk and subbed brown sugar for sweetner. My 1 yr. old liked it but something was missing....I'll have to experiment!
These were good and didn't taste a lot like whole wheat like most other whole wheat recipes. I love the fact that there is no butter used. We will make these again. Thanks!
These pancakes turned out great!!! I used 5 packets of splenda, left out the blueberries and added sliced strawberries and banana on top. Yummmy!
these made big, thick, fluffy pancakes! I love that they are 100% w.wheat, so I don't have to fuss w/ oatmeal or wheat germ or whatnot. I made mine w/ peach slices and soy milk, and a dollop of pancake syrup for the sugar (which is a great trick for any pancake recipe). Burning them is totally my fault and not the recipe's, so 5stars strong! :D
I made these with blackberries and the taste was worth four stars. It tasted good raw! However, I am giving it three stars because they stuck like crazy, even when the pan was doused in spray. They also cooked on the outside when I had it on med.-high, but were goey on the inside. Keep the heat on low-med. unless you feel you can kick it up a bit. They taste wonderful, but something needs to be done so they don't stick.
I loved it, hubby has aversions to whole-wheat anything...so it wasnt his favorite. I did add extra milk, and next time would add even more. I'd also add more blueberries. I used regular sugar instead of artificial sweetener. I thought the flavor was really good overall and it wasn't too grainy or earthy like some whole-wheat items can be.
These are great, even without the blueberries! I added a bit more sugar -- used the large brown grain, less-processed variety. Subbed in 1/4 c white flour because my family prefers a smoother consistency. But I think next time we'll go straight whole-wheat healthiness! Thanks!
This is my new fav recipe, except I make it with half milk half plain yogurt for a thicker pancake. Also I use sugar or any other natural sweetener rather than artificial as a matter of preference. Plus add a little vanilla, some cinnamon, and yum!!
Absolutely wonderful!!Used 2 egg whites and skipped the sugar...they tasted just as good....light and fluffy...just as promised...and no whole wheat taste!!They were just what i was looking for....guilt free pancakes!
Loved them, added blackberries because it was all I had, they turned out great! Plus I always make my pancakes w/a little vanilla in them.
I added a little cinnamon and these tasted great, just a little thick. Next time I will take the suggestion of adding more milk.
I decided to make these for Father's Day breakfast after taking my kids to a blueberry picking farm. Based on other reviews, I doubled the recipe and made the following modifications: 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup white flour, 2.5 cups 2% milk, and 2 TBSP honey. Doubling the recipe yielded 15 pancakes, each 1/4 cup of batter. I served these with "Blueberry & Raspberry Pancake Topping" (from this website, using only blueberries) and smoked turkey sausage. My hubby and the small kids loved them, but my teenager, not so much. I felt great knowing I had made a delicious healthy meal for my family. I rated these a 4 because of the changes that were strongly suggested by others. Perhaps I'll make a single batch next time exactly as written. I will definitely make these again.
So good! Everyone loved these
This recipe is AWESOME! Best pancakes I've ever made! Usually I find whole wheat pancakes too dry, but these turned out great! I followed the recipe exactly, but added the suggested extra 1/4 cup of milk. I also added some cinnamon, vanilla, and cloves, as suggested by other reviewers. Yummy! My new favorite pancake recipe! :)
These are good if you don't add the sweetener.
Just finished these for breakfast. They were good, A little bit bland if you dod not get a peice with a blueberry, but the syrup helped with that, and the fact that i added extra blueberries. The texture was a little bit grainy but they were stillf light and fluffly. I will make again.
Added 2 small very very ripe banana's which made it really moist so not sure if they would've been dry without that but I needed to use them. Delicious!
Everyone loved this recipe. I will be making this again.
Not bad. I've never tried a whole wheat pancake but was specifically looking for one. My husband said he couldn't tell the difference. I used double the amount of blueberries because I had them frozen in one cup baggies.
These pancakes are flavorless. Perfect if you need something to throw your own spin on. Not so great if you like naked pancakes.
I love it! I've used it many times now, i've made some changes of course. i used rice milk or water instead of milk(milk allergy). For the egg i used 2TBSP warm water 1TBSP oil and 2 tsp of baking powder. mix that in a small bowl then add to rest. For an egg sub. Blueberry tip: if you roll them in flour first, they won't make your mix purple. love it!
We all love theese, me for the great health concious ingredients and the kids and hubby for the awsome flavour. Yum!
These are super fluffy and I just added some applesauce to it because it was real thick at first. I also added vanilla and cinnamon..which I add to all my pancakes. But it has a 3 year old seal of approval. She loves them.
Great pancake recipe! Add however much milk you prefer to get your desired consistency. I use this recipe all the time and change up the fruit. A favorite is mashed banana in the batter and stirring in cut up strawberries. I will also add a splash of vanilla or a dash of cinnamon sometimes, so good!
These were great!! Doubled the recipe and glad I did. I did add 1tsp. vanilla, an extra egg and about 3 tbsp of Splenda. These did take longer to cook through and the first one I pulled to early and it was still gooey in the middle. With a little spread of peanut butter my 3 year old ate 3 whole pancakes!! And I didn't even feel guilty because they were so good for him.
I was very surprised at how good this recipe is. My diabetic 3-year-old wanted something "different" for breakfast. I suggested pancakes and she jumped for joy. I quickly found this recipe and tried it. I followed the recipe and it turned out great. Good texture and just sweet enough. Very easy to make. 1/4 cup is too much for one pancake - for us. I recalculated the carb count and found that it's approx. 9 grams of carbs per pancake and it made approx. 15 pancakes. Important info for the diabetics out there.
These pancakes are DELISH! I used unsweetened Almond milk instead and used the extra 1/4 cup and they were so light and fluffy. I also used honey instead of an artificial sweetener. These pancakes will be a weekly breakfast in our home!:)
Excellent. When I got blueberries on sale for $1, I knew what I wanted to make and found this wonderful recipe. I added more milk, sugar substitute and vanilla as suggested. Tried a few variations - added lemon zest to one and a bit of oatmeal to one - did not care for either. Also added some pureed cottage cheese in place of some of the milk (in my effort to get enough protein in my diet) and that did not make much difference in the pancakes, a bit moister. Thank you for posting this, it is the best no oil added pancake I have ever had!
Ditto other reviews. Delicious! Healthy! And easy too! Can't get much better than that.
Very good! My daughter said they felt like a pillow since they are so fluffy. I added some vanilla and used 4 tbls of sugar. Served them with some fresh macerated strawberries and the kids ate them up! I'll be keeping this recipe.
Lovely breakfast treat! I stayed pretty true to the recipe although I did add 1 tsp. brown sugar and once batter was mixed I divided it into two bowl, adding 1/4 c thawed frozen blueberries to one and fresh sliced strawberries/choc.chips to the other. They were delicious! Thanks for the healthier pancake recipe. :-D
First time making scratch pancakes and using whole wheat flour. A bit nervous that my very "unhealthy" hubby would not appreicate the wheat pancake. I used king arthurs whole wheat pastry flour and fresh strawberries on some and banana's with cinnamon on others. Also used fat free milk and was not sure if that would ruin the recipe, but still great! Husband loved them, didn't have a word of complaint!!! They were very moist, didn't use tons of butter or syrup like on normal pancakes! Will definitely make again...may throw in wheat germ, flax seed or chopped nuts???
These were perfect and I didn't even use the blueberries. My nephew is on a health kick so I made them for him while he was visiting. He loved them just the way they were.
I substituted a mashed banana for the blueberries as I didn't have any on hand. Both my 18 month old daughter and my husband found these to be very good. Eliza ate two of the 14 pancakes made in this recipe. However, I would say that with the moist banana, they are not as light and fluffy as they would be with blueberries. They were a little heavier, but we didn't mind. I debated just slicing the bananas and placing on top. That may have made them more like the blueberry version. Try it! Healthful and tasty.
The pancakes were awesome. I mixer beated the eggs with sugar, then added 1 1/8 cp milk, salt and baking soda + wheat flour. I replaced the blueberries with kiwi, cuz I didn't have any. And I also replaced a quarter cup of wheat flour with almond flour cuz I thought all wheat flour might've been too heavy. But I really need not have worried. The pancakes were light, airy, and delectable. It's definitely better and healthier than any pancake mix batter.
Love these. Easy.
Wonderful!!!! i tried this recipe, this morning, only because i was out of pancake mix and bisquick. i made them exactly per the recipe and they were the best and tastiest whole wheat blueberry pancakes we have ever had.
so easy and great. I saw another recipe too many ingredients! so i looked at this one. I added (hehe :)) chocolate chips and nuts and garnished it with bananas on the side. Amazing. Next i want to try peanut butter and chocolate chips!!
Wow! These are the best pancakes I've ever eaten, let alone cooked. I am really quite horrible at cooking pancakes, but I've made these pancakes twice now and they've turned out perfect and delicious. The blueberries litterally provide a POP of flavor each time you bite into it.
Pretty good for healthy version.
Awesome recipe. I was afraid that with only whole wheat flour they would be dry but they weren't. We didn't have blueberries so I made them without and served them with sliced strawberries, cinnamon and whip cream on top. I doubled the recipe but only used 1 Tbs of baking powder. Like other reviewers I added vanilla.
I really like this pancake recipe. It's quick and easy. I will try different fruit later. I have put banana and it is great. I only use 1/4 tsp of salt. I had to add a little bit more milk, probably about 1/4 cup or a little bit less. Thanks for the great recipe!
These were amazing I couldn't believe they were so healthy. I doubled the recipe to make extra for freezing, but then realized I only had half a cup of blueberries. I mashed up 2 very ripe bananas and a very ripe peach and added them in the way with the blueberries. I used a tablespoon and a half of sugar in place of the artificial sweetener and dashed some cinnamon and these turned out amazing.. surprisingly thick and fluffy.. so delicious i'll definitely make these again
these were great. I searched a recipe b/c my daughter wanted pancakes and I didn't have mix left. I did use more than 1 cup on the milk and I detest art. sweetner, so I added 2 TBS of sugar and could have easily gotten away with just 1 TBS. I will definitely make these again - they are healthy :) thanks!!!!
One of the best whole wheat pancake recipes ever! Because I used 1/2c flour & 3/4c whole wheat, I added 1/3c ground flaxseed. Also, as another reader suggested, I added cinnamon and vanilla. The extra 2Tbs milk made the batter perfect for us. I didn't have blueberries on hand, but it was still delish!
Great! I use 100% white WHOLE wheat. It's great.
This was a bad recipe. The batter was 'glue-like' and so thick that the pancakes burned before they had cooked all the way through. I added milk and then water several times but it didn't help much. I finally got one to cook through but it was sooo heavy, just not an appealing pancake to me. I like mine light and fluffy. I'm not sure if that's the way whole wheat pancakes are supposed to be, but if they are they're just not for me.
The batter was very thick, and as others have mentioned, I couldn't get the inside of the pancakes to cook without burning the outside. They for sure taste healthier than most pancakes, not sure if that is a good or bad thing. I'm glad I tried it, and they were pretty good, but not sure these are for me. Thanks for sharing!
Best homemade pancakes I ever ate, bar none! I omitted the blueberries as I had none, and just followed the rest of the recipe. I used a heavy teflon-coated skillet and coated the bottom with a small amount of vegetable oil. I used about 1/2 cup extra milk, but then I may have had a tad more than 1-1/4 cups flour as I did not sift it. Also, I make my pancakes plate-sized and the recipe made 4 pancakes for me at that size. With the box-mix, buttermilk pancakes that I always used before I could always eat a full stack of 3 plate-sized cakes and still be hungry when done. But, I could only eat half the plate of 4 of these plate-sized cakes because of how filling these cakes are. I just put the leftovers in the fridge and will microwave them to eat later. I will never buy a box pancake mix again, if that tells you anything. So, give these a try. You will not be disappointed whether you use blueberries or just make them plain!
There is a sight chance that these would be better if I had added real sugar, but I doubt it. I liked this recipe because it was healthier than most pancake recipes, but it was not good at all. Unfortunately, the only way I could consume them was to pour syrup all over them bad boys and stuff many berries in my mouth. I would advise substituting them with bananas because bananas are awesome, but I wont make these again. Also, you probably shouldn't do what I did unless you like choking.
These were so dry as is! I had to add nearly one extra cup of milk. I also added cinnamon and vinalla for extra taste. With those changes, they were pretty good, although still more cake-like than I am used to. I am going to try a different recipe next time but may at some point come back to experimenting with this one.
This recipe is perfect and is the only one we use now. Instead of artificial sweetener, we use honey, and sometimes we leave out the blueberries depending on what the kids are in the mood for. I have no complaints and no suggestions for improvement. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
I made them with blackberry instead...not that good. They taste much better with the blueberries. I added about 1/3 cup more of milk, it didn't taste the same than the time i did it with the milk it suggested. All in all, very tasty!
I made these on the weekend, not knowing how well they would taste, so I made only half of the recipe because I didn't want to make ten pancakes for myself (I'm the only one in my family that loves pancakes, crazy, right?!) I definitely had to add the blueberries because I'm a huge blueberry fan, and once I tasted them I was surprised how wonderful they were! I added some vanilla and cinnamon to them because I mostly add vanilla to everything, sometimes cinnamon. This recipe is a definite save! It was the first time I made homemade pancakes, now I don't have to buy the store bought boxes! Give this a five star!
These were dry for our taste. I doubled the batch and added an extra 1/3 cup of milk, 3Tbs brown sugar, 1.5tsp vanilla, and an extra 1/2 cup of blueberries.
I've made these every Saturday for 5 weeks now. Love Love Love. Just add a touch more milk to make the batter a little more runny. I have used blueberries, sometimes sliced up strawberries. Once I had blackberries on hand and those were incredible. Today I am going for chocolate chips. Can't say how much I love making these! Oh and I use unsweetened almond milk (only 35 calories a cup!) to make these even healthier.
could use oil or mashed banana.
GREAT Recipe! The only changes I made was I used Almond Milk instead of milk because I don't drink milk and I used Agave Nectar instead of Artificial Sweetner...I also added a bit of vanilla extract! Mmm!
Amazing! Especially for whole wheat pancakes. I added a bit of cooking oil in the mixture-and ate them with maple syrup. Thank you for sharing-will make them more often now!
I used almond milk and substituted apples for blueberrites, they were excellent!
I used 1/2 quinoa flour, some coconut palm sugar and added some vanilla extract. They were yummy and made enough to freeze for a few days of breaks during the week.
I made these exactly as written (except I used almond milk as that's all I had) and absolutely loved them! Very simple yet delicious.
Loved it! I keep the dry ingredients ready in ziploc bags, comes in very handy
very yummy! They tasted great without an over whelming wheat flavor. Like some others I also added cinnamon(about 1tsp), a little vanilla(about 1/2 to 1tsp) and a little more milk. They came out great. If your making them for your family I would double the batch. P.S. Don't forget to smile today!!!
Made these as "breakfast for dinner" and WOW! I thought they would have a dense texture, but quite the contrary. I doubled the recipe and used 3 eggs total and 2 1/2 cups milk. It needed more liquid than the recipe called for. I also crushed a few blueberries and blackberries and heated them with our maple syrup. Son and husband gave it 5 stars. Will be my new pancake standby.
Good! Found that I definitely NEEDED that extra 1/4+ cup milk, because my batter was so thick. I used organic agave instead of artificial sweetener, and added a dash of vanilla extract. Mmmm!
These are great. The best part is not needing buttermilk. I rarely have that around unless I buy it special for baking. I will definitely make these again and use any fruit I have around. They would probably be great without fruit too.
these pancakes were amazing! Definitely add more milk!!! about another 1/4 cup or so.
