These are great with a little "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" and orange marmalade. They're also very nice with traditional butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!

I switch the amounts of wheat flour and all-purpose flour and it makes a fluffier pancake without too much of whole wheat flavor. That's the only change I make and it's great.

The whole wheat flour overpowers the orange and the pancakes tasted tooo healthy! :(

I had to sprinkle in about two more heaping Tablespoons of flour at the end to get a good batter consistency. Other than that, good recipe.

Took advice about topping with orange marmalade and it was great. Question though... could I heat orange marmalade and then use it as a topping. That would be great if I could.

These were terrific, thanks! Fluffy and flavorful - I had them with Smart Balance and a pop of powdered sugar.

Just made some for myself, and they were brilliant! Even came out well without milk, but you should use less baking powder.

Made them for my boys, forgot the sugar, they loved them anyway - with butter and blue agave syrup.

Came out somewhat "gluelike" but were good when reheated in the toaster.
