    Just wanted to let you know – this is my favorite waffles recipe! I’ve made it many times the past 2 years or so. A couple times, I made the “regular” waffles recipe (first Google result for waffle recipes), and it was super disappointing. These are satisfying AND tasty. I do tend to add a tablespoon of sugar. I also recommend melting your honey into the melted butter before combining – it’s so much easier. Thanks for a favorite!

  2. Pancakes are great for breakfast and snack. You can even put some of your favorite food like chocolate chips or chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, corn and you can even put bacon and you will surely enjoy.

  3. It doesn’t seem worth dirtying a blender for 30 seconds. Would a stick blender work for this? It’s easier to clean.

    I used Ricotta which I had on hand an omitted the maple syrup. They were delecious! My 2 year old and hubby gobbled them down. I slathered with jelly and rolled up for my daughter and served fresh fruit on the side :)

    These were not my favorite. I love pancakes, but these aren’t pancakes to me. They were spongy, thin and didn’t ever seem done enough for me. I didn’t fry them in butter. I used a griddle set a little lower than 350 because they kept get overdone on the outside. My little man enjoyed them, but I wouldn’t make these again for myself.

  6. I am new to this site and LOVING it. Great recipes with great tips! My only question is why there is not nutritional information with each recipe? I know everything in it is healthy already but our family has some diet issues where it would be nice to know a little bit about each serving. Just curious if anyone knows.

  7. These are amazing! I’ve made them two days in row so my freezer will be stocked. Lately I’ve really been into making different types of pancakes, sweet potato pancakes, “protein” pancakes, pumpkin, banana, etc. These are by far, the BEST ones yet! Thank you Lisa!

  8. This sounds great. I’ve been making tons of Lisa’s recipes and everyone is great!! I’m the only one out of my family of 7 that can’t eat gluten. I’ve had decades of migraines until I figured it out. So I’ve been using king Arthur’s organic whole wheat flour for most recipes and well I can’t eat any of it or my migraines start right up again! I’ve found gluten free flour but not organic! Do you know of any organic gluten free flour? And same for oatmeal? I’m trying to follow Lisa’s rules and trying to go organic and Non GMO for my family. Is it safe to say if it’s organic it’s also Non GMO or not?
    Love your blog!!

      Hi Lynn. USDA certified organic should also be GMO-free. I, personally, think Bob’s Red Mill has the best gluten free selection but it is very difficult to find gf flours blends that are mostly whole grain: http://www.bobsredmill.com/gluten-free/. Some compromise is necessary for being gluten free and following the pledge rules. :) I buy gf rolled oats from Trader Joes. They are not certified organic, however. ~Amy

  9. Can I omit the maple syrup, and if so, should I replace it with an alternative liquid, like milk? A few years ago I omitted added sweetener from my favorite pancake recipes, as it occurred to me that we were we were already topping said pancakes with maple syrup, cinnamon butter, fruit and whipped cream, etc.

    1. Assistant to 100 Days (Amy)

      Hi Kristin. You could omit it but they do have a nice flavor on their own with just a bit of butter. :) You may need to add a little more milk to get the consistency correct if you omit the syrup but not much. ~Amy

  10. I’ll need to make these gluten free…could buckwheat flour be used instead of the whole wheat flour? I’ve tried using buckwheat flour in other recipes halved with a regular GF mix and the results haven’t worked yet for me.

  11. This look great, Lisa. You can also substitute ricotta cheese or yogurt to get that fluffy texture. We never make “regular” pancakes anymore now that I’ve learned that trick!
