Oat Pancakes

My daughter brought this recipe home from school one day, and we loved it. Since then, these pancakes have been a regular part of Sunday morning breakfast, served with maple syrup, flavored syrup or applesauce and a big helping of grits. —Linda Hicks, Pinconning, Michigan

    Awesome recipe, I have used it since it was in the magazine. You can change the flavors by using the instant flavored oatmeal packets (measure the 1 cup). Then leave the sugar and salt out of the recipe, it's already in the oatmeal. My favorite way to eat Apple Cinnamon oatmeal!

    We LOVE these pancakes. I add cinnamon and serve with agave syrup.

    I didn't expect these pancakes to be as nice and fluffy as they were. We topped them with bananas foster. Very good!

    This tasted a bit too much like oatmeal for me, it was very flat. I did not have lemon juice on hand, so I substituted with some lemon extract, which may have been the problem. I will make this recipe again, but with a few tweaks.

    I used leftover oatmeal from yesterdays breakfast(about one cup} (I intentionally make too much) add an egg, flour, enough milk to thin and fry in oil. These are so light. Serve with hot brown sugar syrup.

    I tried this recipe because I was very low on food in the house. Every ingredient is a staple, and it is so quick. My mom and I loved the taste too. Plus it is so healthy! I'll make these in college all the time.

    Excellent! The oats really give the pancakes a hearty appeal.

    I use whole wheat flour to make them even more healthy. They turn out very nice, not too heavy.
