The ingredient proportions are good except I did add some water to thin the batter a bit. These were fabulously fluffy light pancakes and so healthy! I even subbed all the flour for whole wheat! I've never made a w.w. pancake this fluffy before. I did add a little extra of the soda and powder. I didn't have sour cream so used a 6 oz. container of f.f. blackberry yogurt I had hanging around. I love the fact that this is high in fiber and very low fat...no butter or oil. Sprayed the pan with Pam and used butter spray and some honey on top! Filled me up on this rainy morning. Wonderful recipe and great with the whole wheat flour in lieu of all-purpose. If one doesn't like the batter that thick(it was more like a bread or muffin batter), just thin it with some water or milk to your liking.

Tasted good but were heavy. I thought I would pop after eating 2 of them.

I was actually looking for a waffle recipe that uses applesauce, and I ran across this particular pancake recipe. I liked the idea that it also uses oatmeal (since I have a lot of it in my cupboard!) I figured why not, I'll give it a try and make it into waffles. My experiment was a success--nice, light waffles with a hint of cinnamon. I doubled the recipe, and it made 4 full-sized waffles. I baked them in my waffle iron for approximately 8-9 minutes each. My husband gave them a thumbs up, too!

Who says a pancake has to be fluffy? These are wonderful. The batter is VERY thick and you have to kind of spread it in the pan. They are heavy...but that works for us. Two regular pancakes and I'm hungry by 10 a.m. Two of these and I was full to noon! Yummy too! My 10 yr old son ate two of them on top of his breakfast cereal. We will definately make these again!

We love 'em!! Did 2/3 cup whole wheat flour, 2/3 cup oats ground up in food processor. Added rest of dry ingredients w/ a full tsp of cinnamon, pulsed couple more times to mix. Used plain organic yogurt instead of sour cream & added 1/2 tsp liquid stevia to wet ingredients. Added almost 1/2 cup diced walnuts. Mixed dry ingredients into wet to make some really awsome & very healthy pancakes that were highly approved by my 20 mo' old, 3 yr. old & hubby. UPDATE: made these again & instead of plain yogurt, I used 1/2 c of my homemade vanilla yogurt (32 oz plain organic yogurt mixed w/ 1 tsp stevia & 1 tsp vanilla). Family said these were even better. I serve them to my kids w/ a little raw organic butter & raw honey. Always a big request!

These pancakes are great! They are my kids favorite. They are thick and filling. I make the batter the night before and stick it in the refridgerator. They cook up great the next morning.

Very tasty, hearty pancakes! I didn't have any regular oatmeal, so I subbed 2 packets of low sugar apple cinnamon instant oatmeal. The packets had chunks of dried apples in them that were really good in the pancakes. To compensate for the extra oatmeal, I upped the milk to 1/2 cup. These are heavy pancakes and the batter is thick. You will need to make sure that you cook them on medium heat to make sure they get done in the middle. I browned mine nicely on both sides, but still had a few with 'raw' middles'. I tossed them back into the skillet on low heat and finished cooking them through. My toddler asked for seconds on them - so I will definitely make these again.

I made these today and they were really good! I had to make a double recipe, (I have 5 kids), my batter was perfect, not to thick, not to thin. I did add 1TBS. sugar per batch as per others suggestions and it was just right! Great flavor! You really have to cook these low and slow for them to cook all the way through and not burn, but they are worth the wait! I really enjoyed these as did my family! We will make them again for sure!
