We have been living the low carb life style since 1996, this is the best pancake/waffle mix we have found!!! I have made the best Belgium waffles we have ever tasted with this mix. Everything turns out light & fluffy, not flat & soggy like some low carb products. Sometimes I add vanilla for a change, but this product is a keeper.
I made these pancakes over the weekend while we were camping. We were with 2 other families that have small children. I made regular pancakes and New Hope Mills pancakes. I didn't tell them which ones were which. They ate all of the New Hope Mills and none of the others. It was also my first time having them and I am ordering more.
It's not IHOP but it's the next best thing! I go through these boxes like crazy, I love breakfast and especially love pancakes! I add a little Splenda into my mix when I'm making it because it does tend to be a little bland without it, and sometimes I'll add Ghiradelli cocoa powder for an extra chocolate boost. I always use the Sugar Free Mini Chocolate Chips because I'm a big kid and absolutely love chocolate chip pancakes and top it off with Walden Farms pancake syrup. The syrup absorbs rather quickly so I usually have to use quite a bit but it gives me the stigma of eating unhealthy while actually not doing bad on my low carb lifestyle!
I bought this and a box of the Maple Grove Farms pancake mix and compared them head to head - no difference. The carb count is the same, the prep ingredients needed are the same. They both cooked up fluffy and delicious, I couldn't tell the difference between them and "real" pancakes. The New Hope Mills is slightly more expensive.
Keeping in mind that these are low carb pancakes, my expectations were not that high. These turned out to be extremely good. From my experience, the first time I made them I found them to be bland. All I had to do was sprinkle a tad of salt into the mixture and they turned out delicious. I have them quite often and am ordering another box now to keep on hand. They are even better if you add some fresh blueberries to them or sugar free chips if you prefer.
This pancake mix is great! It does not drastically raise my blood sugar like other "low-carb" pancake mixes have. I found the mix to be a bit bland, so I add a few pinches of salt, a few drops of EZ Sweetz, and vanilla extract to the batter. I also recommend Walden Farms pancake syrup.
Was desperate for a low carb pancake/waffle mix that wasn't terrible tasting. So excited to find this! We go through 2-3 boxes a week in my family! Really no reason for me to ever eat a 40 carb plate of pancakes again!
I made these for the first time tonight. WOW! They were delicious. I added some sugar free maple syrup (no net carbs due to sugar alcohol). This was such a treat for dinner. The pancakes really puffed up and cooked like normal pancakes. They tasted delicious, especially since I haven't had them since Thanksgiving. I highly suggest this product!
It is so nice to be able to eat a low carb pancake and sugar free pancake syrup for breakfast.
Had some this morning and was satisfied and full.
One doesn't feel deprived for sure.
Thanks for having this item by New Hope Mills.
This is a great pancake mix. My teenage daughter was willing to try it instead of bisquick heart healthy mix. She thought it was great. She now asks for the "healthy pancakes" on Sundays. I also got her converted to sugar free syrup too.
Expensive but worth it.
This mix makes an amazing waffle. I over-estimated how much batter to use, not realizing how much it would rise in the waffle-maker! I need to figure out a better syrup or topping option, as the syrup I used was a bit strange and left an aftertaste, but the waffle itself was great and satisfied a craving I've had for weeks... And the entire reason I bought the baking gift box in the first place. Highly recommend for anyone craving a waffle or pancakes. (even better drenched in butter... Yum!)
I am very pleased... I added DaVinci's sugar-free french vanilla syrup. Even my husband , who is neither a pancake nor sugar-free fan, enjoyed them! I am thrilled about being able to have pancakes while on a low carb diet.
This was soooo delicious! Use SF Walden Farms pancake syrup and add fresh chopped strawberries to the wet mix and they are the best pancakes in the world... and a great source of protein for those bodybuilders who love pancakes but need the protein and lower carbs! ( LIKE ME LOL ) This rocks. I went from my Sunday pancake treat to having pancakes for dinner now as well about 2 times a week :)
