  1. Mix buttermilk and oats in a large bowl; allow to rest about 5 minutes. Stir flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt into oat mixture. Add eggs and vegetable oil; mix until just combined.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

This is a wonderful option for those looking for a healthier morning pancake. The flavor and texture is good, but next time I will send them over the top by adding blueberries. These pancakes would be perfect with the addition of fruit.

Made these exactly per the recipe. Texture was a bit off for me. Maybe better if the oats had been blasted in the blender or food processor first? Might try a second attempt with that method.

Excellent, great texture. I followed the recipe exactly and my wife and I were very happy with the results. We served them with bananas and toasted pecans.

Best pancake recipe ever. Loved the taste and texture (no doughy cakes for me); it's what I've been looking for for years. No issues at all with runny batter since I used quick oats instead of old fashioned; they more readily absorbed the buttermilk. They were also great the next day,didn't get soggy and held up very well. This is my go-to recipe.

Awesome Pancakes!! I increased the sugar to 1 Tbsp... everything was exact. These are sooo good! We had them for dinner and I don't feel one bit guilty;) Texture and flavor are perfect. They do have to cook just a bit longer than the standard batter. This will be a go to!

I have made these many times, and they are great as is. Sometimes I add vanilla for a special occasion. These pancakes are thin, but that is how we like ours. The flavor and texture is delicious. When I tried putting blueberries in the batter it was too thin to work very well, so we put our fruit on top.

This is excellent! Just as good, maybe better, than my favorites at the famous pancake parlor in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. I cut the recipe in half, as I only needed 2 servings, which was more than adequate. Half the recipe makes 6-8 four inch pancakes (I used 1/3 cup measure for each). I also mixed the cornmeal in with the oats and buttermilk to soften for 5 minutes. Delicious whole grain flavor yet still light with a pleasing texture. Cooked up beautifully with nice golden color. A mainstay for sure!

Delicious!! I made this GF by using Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Flour instead of the wheat all purposes flour. I never have buttermilk so I used 2 Tablespoon lemon juice and filled a two-cup measure with almond milk. I made the mistake of using a course corn meal so will adjust next time and use a finer grain. I don't think any of these substitutes changed the original recipe just made it gluten and dairy-free friendly. I didn't not find the batter runny at all. It is important to let the oatmeal and buttermilk set for the 5 minutes.
