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!
