I accidentally used a cup & 1/2 instead of 1/4 of oats and it still turned out fine. The first time I made them I found the batter really runny but maybe I used too much butter, but also, the 2nd time around I let the oats soak in the milk for about 10 minutes and that seemed to really help soak up some liquid. I also added about 1/4 tsp of baking powder to help the pancakes puff up more, which worked great. I increased the sugar by 1/2 T as well. These are super hardy yummy breakfast and I'll continue to make them! Thanks!

These were wonderful even though I did not use blueberries! I took Rachie's suggestions. I soaked the oats for about 20 min. in the buttermilk, used 1 1/2 T. sugar, and 1 1/4 tsp. baking SODA. I will definately make these again and again!!!

Excellent! Just the right amount of sweetness for me. I used 1 1/2 cups of frozen blueberries. I would have used more but that was all that was left in the bag. I love how the outside of the pancakes became a little crispy with the lovely soft inside. Made for When It's Hot/When It's Not.

The basic batter for this was decent, but I found it to be too runny to make decent pancakes, and it was not sweet enough with the blueberries, even with syrup. I think we will just stick to other recipes in the future instead of trying to modify this one. Thanks anyway.

These were satisfying even though I forgot to add the berries! My father in law enjoyed them, too. Thanks Laurie! Roxygirl

These are good with a great texture. I think they would be even better with a spice like cinnamon added. Instead of white flour, I used whole wheat pastry flour. I love pancake recipes with buttermilk!

These pancakes had a great texture from the oatmeal. I added the blueberries right in with the batter and it worked great - the batter didn't turn purple at all. The flavor was not quite sweet enough for my family though. I even doubled the sugar but we still felt they weren't nearly sweet enough even with syrup on them. I'd like to try them again with a sweeter fruit such as really ripe bananas and see if that makes a difference to us. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

These are great pancakes. The oatmeal adds a nice texture, but doesn't make them overly heavy. I used frozen berries and added them to the individual pancakes to avoid the blue batter problem. I also halved the recipe and came away with 6 perfect pancakes. Thanks for posting.

I do NOT like pancakes, but make them often for my DH. I made these this morning for his breakfast and used the optional method of adding the berries to each pancake separately--great trick. Out of curiosity, I tasted one ----OMG--these are great--thank you so much!!!! From now on, I'll be eating these along with DH, who said they were terrific! Can't wait to try these with other fruits--raspberries, marionberries, banana slices, dates--wow--endless choices. Thank you again for posting this recipe!
