Reviews for Hearty Oatmeal Pancakes
"We like our pancakes a little thicker, so I ease up on the milk."
"These make a lot and I love that they have oats in them. I usually make them using gluten free all purpose flour so hubby can eat them. I have also made them using reduced fat milk and applesauce instead of oil."
"Most store-bought pancake mix is so high in sodium we turn to this recipe for a healthier alternative. I keep the dry ingredients, omitting the salt, in an airtight container to have" at the ready" for ease of preparation. Buttermilk gives the pancakes that light & fluffy texture.I sometimes add a hint of cinnamon or cinnamon sugar to make them special."
"Even my husband who doesn't care for pancakes liked this recipe!!"
"This turned out fantabulous! I added a little water to thin it out some only to have it serve more than 4 servings. It did and they still came out fluffy...SCORE!"
"This is our new family favorite--my kids love the light fluffy texture and I love the fiber and health benefits of the oats and wheat flour. I make it several hours ahead of time (if we are having it for supper) or the night before to soften the oats and speed up getting the meal on the table. These are a MUST try!"
"I love these and so do my kids. I add flaxseed meal and wheat germ to increase the fiber even more. They make a great snack too!"
"Love it, Love it, Love it!! I have 3 boys with growing appetites and all give it a thumbs up!! I loved them also"
