maybe i didn't convert the recipe properly, but these came out soft and i didn't detect the oatmeal at all. my kids called these pancakes, as they had that texture. the flavor was very nice with the cinnamon and coconut, but i guess we would have preferred a bit more crunch. sorry this didn't work for us.
