  1. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and milk together in a bowl until blended; add oats and whisk until oats are wet, about 30 seconds. Set aside until oats absorb some liquid, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon into the oat mixture; whisk until completely blended into a batter.
  3. Melt 1/2 teaspoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Ladle batter into the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip with a spatula and continue cooking until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.

Yum!! I had some fresh blueberries that needed to be used so this was perfect! I also, added walnuts. I made buttermilk using the vinegar and milk trick. My husband is a diabetic and swears by cinnamon so I added more than was called for. Also left out the sugar and used old fashioned oats (it was all I had). So good! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

These did come out nice and fluffy, but the flavor was terrible. My 8-year-old didn't care for it and I quite agreed. They were too salty, for one thing. One reviewer did say to cut the salt, but because I've made similar recipes that called for the same amount of salt I went according to the recipe. I couldn't taste the cinnamon, even though I doubled it. (Because I enjoy cinnamon.) There was a definite grainy quality to the finished product (I think it would have been better if I'd mixed it in a food processor). The flavor was harsh, and needed too much syrup to cover. But I don't want to cover the flavor of a multi-grain pancake, I want to enjoy it.

These were great! I added pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and they were fantastic. I also did a milk and lemon juice buttermilk substitution. I love that they call for more oats than whole wheat. I'll make these again!

Delicious! I substituted Stevia for the sugar and and added a generous sprinkling of nutmeg, (one) chopped apple, and some walnuts. Cooked on a lightly oiled griddle rather than the skillet. Perfect for a fall day. Definitely a keeper.

This recipe was great! The only change I made was that I used 2 tsp. pure maple syrup instead of the white sugar. Fluffy, moist, and tasty!

These are amazing! The only change I made was adding 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to two cups of 2% milk to make a buttermilk substitute since I didn't have any buttermilk on hand. It still turned out great!

Five stars because it's a great alternative pancake recipe. I would cut the salt just a little, but other than that - recipe 'as written' is good. If you don't want whole oats in the batter, just pulse the dry oats in the blender a bit first and that should take care of it!

Healthy twist on classic pancakes! Pancakes turned out really awesome, never would have thought about putting oats into the batter and we love cooking with whole wheat flour. I added some honey, pecans and a little bit of brown sugar (I tend to like things on the sweeter side) I did try 1 pancake before adding anything extra and it was delish too. Can't wait to try blueberries in these next time!
