These pancakes are truly wonderful! They are soft and spongy with a great taste! Mmm, we could not stop eating these and devoured the entire batch. :)
I decided to leave some of the oats whole and that added a nice texture to the pancakes. As I was out of flaxseeds I used some potato starch to help bind everything. Like Magpie I used rice milk, which worked like a charm.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a true keeper with us, Syd!
