I grind my own oats in this recipe, which makes the pancakes light and fluffy. And, you get plenty of bursting-with-flavor blueberries in every bite! —Candy Summerhill, Alexander, Arkansas

"These are the most wonderful, fluffiest pancakes ever! I love the fresh blueberries in them, but my daughter doesn't like blueberry pancakes, so I may try apple next time. But these are amazing! It only make 8 pancakes for me, though, and I measured 1/4 cup batter for each. Anyway, I love the thick, fluffy texture of these dense pancakes. They are more substantial than traditional pancakes without being too dense. I will definitely be making these again and again! I used fat-free sour cream and white wheat flour for wheat to keep them as light as possible. Very, very good! Definitely a keeper."

"Absolutely Delicious!! Will definitely make again. A decent amount of prep work but VERY worth it. Maybe I will process a bunch of oats ahead of time to have on hand for this recipe. Evaporated milk comes in a small 5 oz. can, so that leaves no leftovers, and I added maybe a tablespoon of milk to get it to the 2/3 C. For sure my favorite pancakes ever."

"My family loves pancakes, EXCEPT me, these however are a hit with ALL of us! I love the texture and the fact that they don't have that traditional pancake taste.

After experimenting I made a few changes to the directions, first I use 3/4 cup skim milk in place of the evaporated milk. [The skim milk is cheaper and produces a thinner batter, plus I hate trying to find uses for a partial can of evaporated milk.] Second I fold whatever fruit i'm using right into the batter meaning I usually end up with 12-15 pancakes. Also I alter my juice, extract and cinnamon depending on the fruit I'm using. My favorite spice combination is 1/4 tsp each cinnamon and cardamon. Most often I replace the orange juice with whatver fruit juice I'm using. [Pineapple for pina colada, peach for peach...]. Lastly I made a sweet potato version by using mashed sweet potatoes and finely chopped spinach. [A warning though the sweet potato were much moister.] One last note these freeze and reheat well, just pop them in the toaster or wicrowave [The sweet potato need to go in the microwave, they stick to the toaster :( ]"

"All 12 of my family loved them! I made two substitutions (becuase of what I had on hand). I used strawberries instead of blueberries and I did not have wheat flour. Also, I did not take the time to process the oats. I thought it may make the texture off, but it was fine. They did take a bit longer to cook than 'normal' pancakes. But they are a definate make again. yum, yum!"

"I loved these and loved that they were so healthy. My only complaint was that they stuck when I used cooking spray, so I used a little canola oil to cook them in. I liked the flavor personally. It was a thick batter, but it was fine to me. I would make it on a day I would be off work because the prep time is a little more than usual."
