  • Reviews

  • “These pancakes were simply delicious and filling, and healthy to boot. I just didn’t tell my “men” what was in the pancakes and they both loved them. Will definately make again. “

  • “Fabulous! They were fluffy and filling with a wonderful flavor.I used butter flavor cooking spray on my griddle for an extra layer of flavor.5 stars+!”

  • “Me and my son loved these pancakes.But DH didn’t like the texture of the oatmeal in them.It was very good with maple syrup.Thanks Lennie :)Made for I Recommend tag game”

  • “My favorite pancake recipe ever! So much flavor!! I only had old fashioned oats so I soaked them a bit longer (10 min) and it worked just fine. This recipe will be repeated!! Thanks for sharing!”

  • “When I read the ingredients…I knew I had to try this recipe!!I have a recipe for Irish Soda Bread that we make (alot!) with almost the exact ingredeints LOL.I used approx 3/4 cup of raisins also put them in the oatmeal and milk and let them soak together…Fabulous pancakes…very very filling!!Thank you for posting!!”

  • “I was surprised.My kids gobbled them up. I brought one for my post workout snack.These’ll be made again.Thanks!”

  • “Marvelous pancakes. I just started soaking the oatmeal first and by the time I got everything else together the 5 mins were up. I did need to add another 2 tablespoons of flour to get the right consistency. I made a single serving and got 3 large pancakes. Had I used the 1/4 cup as ask I would likely had 8, LOL. Outstanding with Recipe#241750. :D”

  • “These are very good, tasty and filling. I made these for my son and his friend after a sleepover, and I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time to get everything together. So I mixed the batter the night before, and stored it in the fridge, covered. That long rest period made it impossible to recognize oats in there, which is a good thing for my guys! I used a 1/4 cup measure to scoop, and got 16 4″-5″ pancakes. Thanks, Lennie, for sharing a great healthy pancake recipe!”

  • “My 2 year old and I loved these!This was a great base recipe that I adjusted as follows.I substituted a mixture of yogurt and milk for the milk (2/3 yogurt to 1/3 milk) used regular oats, (needed a little more milk and approx. 1/2 hour soak) added extra tsp of baking soda, doubled the sugar and added some vanilla and cinnamon.These turned out fluffy and tender.My little guy is happy eating these plain, so I’m not filling him up with syrup.Rewarmed, they make a healthy quick breakfast for those crazy weekday mornings.”

  • “Wonderful!I used all whole wheat flour instead of half all-purpose, and sucanat instead of brown sugar, and it turned out great!Not fluffy, but not dense either.Great with real maple syrup.I also like them with natural almond or peanut butter spread on top.Makes a lot so I freeze the leftovers for later!Thanks for the recipe, it’s a keeper!”

  • “These turn out great every time.I feel a little better giving these to the kids on weekends (some choc chips find their way in), and having seen all that fibre that goes into them, you’d never guess it when you taste them.These are in our house to stay!”

  • “These were awesome. More consistant, so you felt like you were eating more then just syrup. Holds you over longer. Used corn meal instead of wheat germ and worked well, were not grainy like I thought they might be. Family loved them.”

  • “These turned out perfect and tasted great!! I like that they are healthy and easy/quick to make. They didn’t bubble as much as other pancakes I have made so it’s best to watch them carefully as they might burn if you wait for them to bubble before flipping (I had a few that turned out rather dark on one side or the other or both)!! Great recipe, thanks for posting.”

  • “Great pancake to start your day! I have made these pancakes about 6 times now. They puff up very nicely and I love how healthy they are! It is a flexible recipe that you can add fruit, nuts, etc too. I also like to add cinnamon. I just made a double batch this morning so that I can put some in the fridge for the rest of the week. A yummy guilt free breakfast! Also, it makes 15 1/4 cup pancakes…”

  • “The whole family gives these 5 stars!I’ve made these 3 out of the past 5 mornings and they keep requesting them!These are a very filling pancake, and very tasty too!I use old fashioned oats and add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla for a bit of added flavor.Thanks, Lennie!”

  • “Great pancakes!!!We were in the process of making another pancake recipe and realized that we had no buttermilk.So, we added 1/3 cup fine chopped walnuts to the mix.They turned out great.I like that they are so healthy, next time we are going to use all whole wheat flour.Delicious recipe.”

  • “These were great!! I will be making these many more times! My other favorite oatmeal pancake recipe turns out a bit too flat, and this one cooked up a bit thicker, which I like. Great flavor! Very filling and nutritious breakfast! 4 thumbs up from my 2 boys!”

  • “Delicious.I made these when I first found out I was pregnant and was going overboard trying to be healthy.They have since become a favorite.My step-children even enjoy them.Thank you for a wonderful and healthy recipe!”

  • “Very delicious! I only used 1 cup quick oats & used whole wheat pastry flour instead of the white flour (thanks for that suggestion for another reviewer!). Used applesauce for the oil & added cinn & Splenda. Next time I’ll grind up the oats-just a preference. LOVED the healthy ingredients! “

  • “I was surprised how light and delicious these pancakes were!Don’t expect the texture of white buttermilk pancakes– they do have oatmeal and whole wheat flour in them– but they aren’t nearly as heavy and lifeless as some pancakes I’ve made.This recie is a wonderful healthier alternative, and I’ll be making it again!”
