Hi everyone,.

I finally tried something besides a bar the other day (first time the whole month!)... I tried the chocolate chip pancakes... I made them as directed, but added a bit of baking powder to the mix... I sprayed some PAM in the pan and made 1 big pancake... I topped it with WF sugar free syrup and it was HORRIFIC.... It went right down the garbage disposal...

Any tips or tricks?.

Thanks so much!.

What was so horrific about it? Flavor? Texture?.

I think they taste fine, myself...

Sorry you had to waste a packet. I don't care for baking powder in mine, but I would have ate it anyway. I make it as directed, let it sit for a few minutes then make 2 pancakes. You can add a little Splenda to sweeten it up a bit. I prefer the plain pancakes though...

Comment #2

Wow. I love the CC pancakes. I make into one big pancake, nothing added. Then, I put WF strawberry syrup on it. I have that every morning. Give it another try someother time.

I know things that I hated I do like now. And, things I once loved I am now having a hard time even thinking about eating...

Comment #3

See the post regarding combining brownies and pancakes....that looked good...

Comment #4

Wow, I love the pancakes, both flavors and love the WF syrup, too! I do nothing but shake five times, let set a few minutes and cook up to what's the best lookin' pancake I've ever made!..

Comment #5

I like the pancakes make sure you just shake 5 times don't blend or anything.....

Comment #6

The only thing I do is mix it in a bowl with a small wisk instead of shaking. I love the pancakes, and I do not eat pancakes in real world eating...

Comment #7

I mix it with the baking powder overnight, this helps to thicken them. The trick is turning them when the pan is heated enough that they won't fall apart. I love them!..

Comment #8

Same here! Chocolate chips pancakes are one of my favorite Medifast items! I follow the directions on how to prepare them, I add nothing at all. Spray my pan with Pam, let it get real hot and just make one big pancake. Delish!..

Comment #9

I like the pancakes (haven't tried the CC ones yet). I did read somewhere on the boards to mix them only with the five "shakes" and then I let it sit for at least an hour, if not overnight. Hope you find something that works for you!.

Have you tried any other foods besides the pancakes? If so, how do the other meals taste to you? Since you've been eating bars exclusively for a month, I'm wondering if your taste-buds have adapted to the point where other Medifast foods just don't taste "right" anymore. Just a thought.....

Comment #11

I had them today, my first Medifast meal. They tasted good with a little sf syrup. They were kind of dense and about 1/4 what I am used to eating! Maybe letting the mix sit first will help. Now the strawberry shake .............ughh!!!..

Comment #12

I ordered one packet of regular pancake when they first came out. I didn't like it either. It was the texture. But, I just ordered a box and will try them again with the baking powder and rolled into a cream cheese/Splenda crepe. I'll see how that is. If I still don't care for it, I will trade for something I do like at my TSFL meeting...

Comment #13

I liked the plain ones, but I thought the CC pancakes tasted salty. I top them with 1 tsp of low sugar strawberry preserves (1 carb).

I found when I cooked them that if you want one large pancake you cake cook after shaking 5 times, but if you want silver dollar pancakes, you need to let the batter sit to thicken a bit before cooking. I was not able to get as many as their picture shows out of the batter. I tried adding a bit more water, but that just made the pancake fall apart when I tried to flip it...

I LOVE the pancakes! I add one egg (not op but hasn't slowed my loss) and a dash of baking powder and it makes one huge, fluffy pancake. I add a touch of sugar free syrup and it's like heaven!..

Comment #15

Eggs are allowed on Medifast (not sure if that's exactly what you meant by "not op")..

There's a list of lots of meatless on-plan items. Go to the main Medifast page and click the heading "Learning", then Nutrition Information/Meatless Options List..


I like the plain Medifast pancakes, I make one giant pancake. Haven't tried the chocolate chip pancakes yet, but after reading some earlier posts here, I'm tempted to try them, too...

Comment #16

Yes, I know they are "allowed" but I don't count it as my lean. Thanks, though...

Comment #17

Rawhide, it stands for Waldon Farms products. They have all sorts of syrups and sauces that are op...

Comment #18

I bought walden farms apple butter the other day and put a tablespoon on my pancake and it was so yummy.

Had a cinnamon apple taste to it..

Comment #19

I have one word for Medifast pancakes MUFFINS!.

That's the only way I'll eat them!..

Comment #20

The CC pancakes totally ROCK! I make them according to directions but make just one big pancake instead of three smaller ones. I spray it with "Butterlicious" 0 calorie fake butter spray (Safeway house brand) OR I take the scrambled eggs and make a thin omelette the same size as the pancake and roll them together and eat them like a crepe. it counts for 2 meals if I do it that way, but keeps me full until lunch! I used to hate the scrambled eggs until I figured out other things to do with them...

Comment #21

I'm not overly fond of the CC pancakes as pancakes either but I LOVE them mixed with the brownies. I'm sorry that I don't remember who the original poster was but I mix 1 packet CC Pancakes + 1 packet Brownie mix + 3/8C water (6Tbs). I make these in Brownie trays and microwave them one at a time for 1 minute (haven't figured out the timing for both at the same time and don't want to mess with a formula that's been working for me!)...
