I've never had these pancakes at IHOP, but I was happy to try them in the quest for a healthy, substantial pancake. I loved the hearty texture of these along with that signature flavor buttermilk gives; I wasn't sure if I noticed the tangy flavor other reviews described, at first, but realized that it did indeed have that "flavor" IHOP's pancakes do, so it made it very unique. I used a 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce in place of the oil and the pancakes were moist inside and not raw from the replacement. I also replaced the sugar with a few tablespoons I had of honey and a half a pureed banana to add some natural sweetness; the pancakes weren't as sweet as I imagine them being at IHOP, but I really liked the natural flavor the banana lent to it. These are really filling and a great recipe to share!

These really are just like IHOP's...which are my favorite! I used lemon juice milk in place of buttermilk. Chopped the nuts in my "mini-prep" (mini food processor) and ground the oatmeal in the mini-prep as well. I combined everything with a wisk instead of electic mixer. Worked perfectly!

I made these just for me so I wanted to make them as simply as possible. I used soy milk with 1 tsp of vinegar (worked great) and brown sugar Splenda. I did not process the oats but soaked them in the clabbered milk while I prepared other ingredients. I added 1 Tbsp steel cut oats and 1 Tbsp flax seed for more fiber. I also did not use a blender (I like a lot of texture) but mixed everything by hand. They turned out great! Next time, I may try using just egg white to make them even healthier
