My family absolutely loves these pancakes. I make them every Saturday and Sunday. If I don't, they don't believe it's the weekend! My son's friends often spend the night, and I think it's because they like the pancakes so much. They are especially delicious served with molasses and syrup. —Sharon W.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the oats, flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. In another small bowl, beat the egg, oil and buttermilk. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.
  3. Freeze option: Freeze cooled pancakes between layers of waxed paper in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, place pancakes on an ungreased baking sheet, cover with foil and reheat in a preheated 375° oven 5-10 minutes. Or, place a stack of three pancakes on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 minutes or until heated through. Yield: about 10 pancakes.

"Delicious! I did swap out the all purpose flour for buckwheat flour and added a handful of pumpkin seeds, but otherwise made them as written. Definitely tasty enough to forgo the syrup, and very filling."

"The recipe only made 5 pancakes, which was just right for 3 people. They were very filling. They turned out a little dense and dry - I recommend adding more liquid as some others have suggested. Not too sweet, thankfully, because they needed maple syrup for moisture. I will probably look for another pancake recipe to try."

"My family made faces when I told them what I was making. Now, these are the only pancakes they want to have!"

"These are awesome!! Very filling, great tasting pancake. I did find that buttermilk made them almost too thick so I use 1 T lemon juice in 1 C of regular milk. Plan to try adding vanilla as some have suggested and maybe a few chocolate chips. Yum!"

"I make these about 2 times a week. They are delicious and very filling. I leave out the brown sugar and add a little more than 1/4 cup of Craisins and also add 1 teaspoon of vanilla. I have also made them with the brown sugar included, great this way too, but they do brown quicker. They are wonderful served with real Maple syrup!!!"
