I made these for a class, but I forgot the eggs! Oh no! However, they worked perfectly! They were still so delicious and perfect, just like they were in the following class where I did bring eggs. Also, we had a dairy allergy, so I used oat milk in place of regular milk. So, the pancakes ended up being vegan, which widens the range of people who will be able to eat these. Win win!

My kids love this recipe, even the picky eaters.

These are so easy to make for my 3yo with just one bowl and i love how they cook so fast and fluffy! I did use Buttermilk instead of regular milk and cinnamon and vanilla extract.

These pancakes are delicious! Yogurt on top is a perfect addition. They also freeze perfectly and are ready to be popped in a toaster for a very quick and healthy breakfast!

Surprised many middle school and high school students with how yummy this recipe is.  Taught them how to prepare it in after-school program. Ate them hot from the grill no toppings needed.

Loved it! My kids like to make these with me.
