My husband used to not like pancakes and absolutely hate pancake syrup until I had him try the oatmeal pancake with mango or blueberry sauce. Now he regularly asks me to make some for breakfast. Serve warm with your favorite syrup or sauce.

I used TWO maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal packets in this recipe as I seem to be out of plain instant oats in my pantry right now. I also used lowfat buttermilk. I've made pancakes with oatmeal before so I knew to let the batter sit 10-15 minutes as the oats need to soak up some of the liquid. This way you know to gauge if the batter needs more liquid. Mine did NOT. The pancakes puffed up nicely and turned out light and fluffy. My husband and kids ate up every single one of these pancakes......my husband especially surprized me by telling me how much he liked this recipe. Read More

These pancakes are really terrible. I usually love any kind of oatmeal pancakes but I thought these were a waste of time and ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out a gross chewy texture. They also tasted an awful lot like baking powder. I would not recommend this recipe!!!! Read More

These are great - so much flavor! Make sure your milk is hot enough for the oatmeal in the milk to soak it all in. I doubled the cinnamon. Whole family loved them including my husband who doesn't 'like stuff' in his pancakes! Read More

Perfect! Easy to make and tasty. I made a bunch and froze them to reheat in the toaster oven on busy mornings. Read More

These are wonderful. It is a small batch (about 6 medium pancakes) so make extra if you want leftovers. Great recipe! Read More

I am the submitter of this recipe. Thank you for trying it. 3 kids in school later, I found that the less dishes used, the better. I now use a big glass measuring cup to heat up the milk. I then stir the oatmeal and UNmelted butter in with the milk. Let it sit for a few minutes, then measure the rest of the ingredients directly into the cup and stir up. One dish! It is awesome!

Good pancakes but too much baking powder. I doubled the cinnamon and vanilla extract and added 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Kids ate them up faster than I could cook more and they didn't need syrup because the chocolate chips gave them that extra sweetness. Recipe made 13 mid-size pancakes which I was surprised since it didn't look like a lot of batter. Don't over mix otherwise they will come out flat. Read More
