My husband's face lights up when I serve these county-style flapjacks. Serve them with fresh fruit or syrup. —Raymonde Bourgeois, Swastika, Ontario

"Very good for Sunday am breakfast. Thinner batter than I'm used to. I put blueberries in ours."

"This "must know" pancake is one to add to your recipe box. Includes staple pantry ingredients, super simple, light and fluffy. I made them for my parents and little girls for breakfast this morning and we all were ready and fueled for the day. I will definitely make them again and maybe use whole wheat flour just because we usually use it."

"Quite tasty! A nice change of pace to regular pancakes. I added a little vanilla, they almost tasted like an oatmeal cookie :)"

"My husband and I really enjoyed these pancakes! The recipe is a nice change from "ordinary" pancake recipes and calls for ingredients I always have on hand. We topped ours with butter and pure maple syrup...yum! I will definitely be making them again!"

"Oatmeal and pancakes are two foods my kids will reliably eat for breakfast, so the combination in this recipe naturally made me want to try it. I was not disappointed!!! As another reviewer put it, these are a hearty pancake. That's not to say they are heavy or dense (mine were actually very fluffy and tender), but they just have that extra something I never knew I was looking for in a pancake! These will make my regular breakfast rotation for sure."

"These are great, hearty pancakes - perfect for school days. They are quick and easy to make. At first I was skeptical about the amount of baking powder as I though it was a lot. I went with it and the only change I made was using gluten-free all-purpose flour and oats. The pancakes fluffed up nicely but did fall a bit after cooking. The taste was great though - we topped with pure maple syrup and bananas!"

"I prepared these pancakes this morning and declare we have a winner. Both my husband and I devoured them. They are easy to prepare and the only change I made was to use Splenda in place of brown sugar because my husband cannot eat sugar. They were delicious. I was a little leery of the batter as it looked very thin but no worries. They fluffed up to a delicious pancake. We will be having these again and again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
