Pancakes are always a treat in our house, and I am always looking for a little something extra to bring on the flavor. I like the oats, orange juice, cinnamon and blueberries in this recipe. It’s like a pastry, but in an easy pancake.

Very good pancakes. I toned the cinnamon down by half to suit our taste. Also , I just mixed the blueberries into the batter at the end rather than sprinkling them on top of the cooking pancakes. Definitely will make these again.

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 :( ]
