I sometimes make these pancakes with whole wheat flour replacing buckwheat (I know, you lose some of the nutrients, but the fam prefers it!), and applesauce mixed with a little baking soda to replace the powdered egg replacer. They're delicious and healthy, as long as you watch the amount of syrup on them.
