My problem with your recipes is that they never tell what the serving size is. The calorie listing is for 2 pancakes or 10?
EatingWell reader Kathy Moseler of Barrington Hills, Illinois, contributed this convenient recipe to our Kitchen to Kitchen department. The pancakes are made with 100 percent whole-wheat flour and get an additional fiber boost from flaxseed meal.

They taste great with nothing on top. Removing the oil will probably make them dry tasting. I prefer using healthier oils instead. I recently found butter flavored grape seed oil; it works great in the recipe. Grape seed oil has good glycemic properties and it helps raise HDL (good) cholesterol.
Way too many ingredients that I won't use for other meals.
Right on. Real Maple Syrup has much lower glycemic index, and moderation / sparingly is the key. We are all healthier when we stay away from processed foods and eat more "real" foods. A tablespoon of whipped cream is pretty minor. A cup or two of whipped cream could be a disaster. I'm happy to see more and more whole grain pancake and waffle recipes. Thirty-five years ago, I fed my kids pancakes from the book "Feed Me, I'm Yours" by Vicky Lansky. Terrific recipe, whole wheat flour, soy flour, corn meal, old fashioned oats, buttermilk or sour milk, powdered milk and other really good stuff. One was a meal. We topped them with fresh fruit that we processed with a hand crank baby food grinder. Fruit sauce. Sometimes a sprinkle of our own hickory nuts or black walnuts. Some of us can be healthy and loose weight with pancakes every day, but for some, they will be occasional and a treat. These are yummy and satisfying.
Agreed with the previous poster - Maple syrup doesn't (and legally can't) have HFCS in it. If it is anything but real maple syrup, it can't say "maple" on the packaging outside of the ingredients label. And, since when is real cream that is whipped terrible for you? It's high in some elements, but eaten sparingly is fine and a good source of protein. And real maple syrup isn't bad for you at all, eaten sparingly.
