Best pancake recipe ever. Loved the taste and texture (no doughy cakes for me); it's what I've been looking for for years. No issues at all with runny batter since I used quick oats instead of old fashioned; they more readily absorbed the buttermilk. They were also great the next day,didn't get soggy and held up very well. This is my go-to recipe. Read More

Made these exactly per the recipe. Texture was a bit off for me. Maybe better if the oats had been blasted in the blender or food processor first? Might try a second attempt with that method. Read More

Excellent, great texture. I followed the recipe exactly and my wife and I were very happy with the results. We served them with bananas and toasted pecans. Read More

This is a wonderful option for those looking for a healthier morning pancake. The flavor and texture is good, but next time I will send them over the top by adding blueberries. These pancakes would be perfect with the addition of fruit. Read More

I have been searching for an oatmeal pancake recipe that I my family really liked. Have tried others and the texture was too doughy - but these were great! I did whirl my oats in the blender first and soaked them and the cornmeal in the milk. I added about 1/4 cup more flour so batter would not be so thin. Sprinkled the tops with blueberries and these were so good. I think my search for a great oatmeal pancake has ended. Thank you! Read More

This is excellent! Just as good, maybe better, than my favorites at the famous pancake parlor in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. I cut the recipe in half, as I only needed 2 servings, which was more than adequate. Half the recipe makes 6-8 four inch pancakes (I used 1/3 cup measure for each). I also mixed the cornmeal in with the oats and buttermilk to soften for 5 minutes. Delicious whole grain flavor yet still light with a pleasing texture. Cooked up beautifully with nice golden color. A mainstay for sure! Read More

This will serve 4 if you are feeding teenage boys or farm/ranch hands. For ordinary adults, this will serve 6-8 and these are true "stick-to-your-ribs" style hearty pancakes. My husband balked at the recipe originally, but one bite turned him into a fan. Read More

My whole family liked this. I had to make add more flour and cornmeal because the batter was too runny (I added an additional 1/2 cup of each keeping the ratios consistent). I also used brown sugar instead of white added 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon because it sounded yummy. I also tried it with mixed in blueberries blackberries and raspberries. Not everyone liked the berries. This was hearty so you will eat less of these than normal pancakes. Read More

I have made these many times and they are great as is. Sometimes I add vanilla for a special occasion. These pancakes are thin but that is how we like ours. The flavor and texture is delicious. When I tried putting blueberries in the batter it was too thin to work very well so we put our fruit on top. Read More
