hey heather,
have you tried the flaxseed method of egg substitution before? it never seems to work quite right for me :(
i love the sound of this recipe though. will give it a go!

Molly, Yes, I’ve tried it Brownie Batter Pancakesand in these falafel balls. Worked just fine in both, and yes, please try the kabocha pancakes. So good!

Heabs, I have to make these minus the oats. What do think would be a good sub?

Justine, Marissa used buckwheat flour, and I’m sure any gluten free baking flour would work just fine. I want to try it with millet myself.

Mmm, this sounds like perfection! I haven’t had pancakes in a long time!

Holy cow I am trying these tomorrow. You better believe I will be letting you know how they turn out!

Justine, you can buy gluten-free oats now, if that’s the issue for you.

These pancakes look so good! I am definitely making these with my butternut squash that is dying to be used!

They were so good, and I think they’d be great with butternut squash. Enjoy Sarena!

hot diggity dawg! I just made a half batch, with pumpkin, coconut butter and maple. oh life is a-ok right now.

Celestial, Happy Pancake Sunday! Yours sounded delicious. :)

Hey Heather- I made these this am for everyone even the picky hubby ate it. I served them with tukey bacon and used my stevia-vanilla dropper instead of stevia and vanilla seprately. They were delicious. I had mine with maple syrup pb.

One question – how many does this recipe serve in your house??

Thanks so much!

Ozlen, So glad you enjoyed. Um, I ate the entire batch myself, but it should probably serve 2. :)

I had a kabocha pancake disaster this morning – these just wouldn’t solidify and flip for me. I cooked them until I was sure the egg was cooked and just ate them all squishy and flumpy anyway. They were delicious, but I’ll have to work on my form. They just needed a little something more to hold them together.


Heather Eats Almond Butter December 20, 2009 at 2:22 pm

Carbzilla, As long as they were edible, then there was no disaster. ;)

Hi Heather!
I’m generally incapable of following recipes but I managed to follow this one perfectly and the result was amazing! It is such a hearty and delicious breakfast. I’ve since modified it according to what I have at hand and how lazy I am and it always turns out delicious. I really enjoy your blog! I love the way you eat, I love butter, I love squash and pumpkin and many of your other favorites! Next stop: OAT BRAN!
Have a great day!

Hi Heather, do you think I could leave out the Stevia ?


HEAB August 2, 2013 at 1:29 pm

Hi Annie,
I’m pretty sure you can just skip it. In fact, I’d probably make the pancakes without it myself these days. If the batter seems too runny, add a little more oat flour. Enjoy!
