These are hearty (I made the pancakes) but not heavy. A very light pancake. I cut the recipe in half and after grinding the oats, just dumped everything else into the blender and mixed. then just poured from the blender jar onto the griddle. Looking forward to trying the waffles next time. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
These came out perfect! I used my coffee grinder to grind the oats into a powder, they really added to the flavor of the waffle. My favorite thing to do with batters is to add vanilla and almond extract, it was amazing. Thanks for sharing!
I LOVE this recipe! I use it for waffles (but I follow the pancake recipe instead of the waffle recipe -- it's what I accidentally did the first time and they were so delicious I never tried the actual waffle recipe). I use nonfat milk instead of buttermilk (what I have in the house) and I add a dash of vanilla. I don't grind my oats (regular rolled oats) -- I just measure them out and throw them in the batter. They add a nice texture. I've made cinnamon batter (by adding cinnamon and Splenda -- I just eye-balled it) and I've made chocolate chip batter. Our favorite is still the original (with the vanilla - I always add vanilla to pancake/waffle recipes). Healthy & scrumptious! We use sugar-free syrup on our waffles and we JUST LOVE THEM! Have used this recipe 3 weeks running (over the weekends). Love that the recipe calls for whole wheat flour. YUMMY! Thanks for posting -- this recipe is EXCELLENT!
Wow, these are so tasty! I made these as pancakes, substituting skim milk for buttermilk because I did not have buttermilk on hand. It didn't seem to matter, because they came out a nice texture and were very hearty and not sweet. The second time I made these, I spiced them up a bit by adding crushed pecans to the batter. This, too, tasted really fantastic!
Mmmmm, these were so good! I used oat flour in place of ground oats, which produced a denser pancake, almost more crepe-like in texture (but not in thickness). This made them a bit less permeable to syrup, but they held together well for nut butter and jam. These were not sweet at all on their own. The texture and moisture did not suffer from refrigeration. In fact, I microwaved them for breakfast for the next several days, and they were still supremely delicious! My husband's ultimate compliment: "They just tasted like regular pancakes, but they were healthy? I guess that makes them 5 stars!"
I used 2 c. buttermilk, and these pancakes turned out great. Grinding the oats is a good idea.
I liked these a lot! I tried them as waffles but after the results, I'm sure the pancakes will be just as good. I added 2 tsp cinn, 1 tsp vanilla & 1/2 cup Splenda. I used applesauce for the butter & oil. Loved the healthy oats in them, too. Thank you!
