My husband is not currently eating wheat, so I thought this would be a good pancake substitute. We both enjoyed it and it was pretty filling. I also liked that these pancakes are easier to flip than traditional ones.

This was a great pancake. I had a devil of a time converting the "1 1/2 oz" into a cup amt, since I don't have those packets! I think I got it right & used 1/2 cup rolled oats (I don't have quick cooking). I wanted 2 smaller sized pancakes instead of 1 lg one so I 2 tbsp water & about 1/3 cup Eggbeaters (one egg=1/4 cup Eggbeaters). I added a nice amount of cinnamon, a little baking powder & vanilla. I also used my immersion blender to make the batter smooth. Natural peanut butter, bananas & some sugar free syrup are great toppings! Thank u for sharing!

My girls just made these. We used flavored oatmeal packets, and they loved them! After the girls were done, I had one egg left. So I put 3 pkts of oatmeal with the one egg, a little baking powder (maybe 1/8 tsp) and enough water to make the "batter". My sons loved them this way too. If your low on eggs and still want to give these a go, try it this way.

These were very quick to put together and my DS's and DD loved them. I made them mini sized, but they can be made in so many different ways. I used plain packets of oatmeal and then added some vanilla and some Apple Pie Spice, and they were gobbled up. Thanks for a great recipe.

Amazing! I've been looking for foods that are lower in sugar and higher in fiber... that are still quick, easy and tasty -- turns out its pretty hard to find those things in a recipe. I ran across this, and it was perfect! Granted, we only had packets of oatmeal from a year ago (1 pumpkin spice, 1 blueberry, and 2 cinnamon/spice). I used all 4 packets, and cooked the in my sandwich maker. Very handy, and my 2 year old LOVES that she can just eat them with her hands. I'm wondering if they refrigerate and microwave well...

I was a bit apprehensive but this ended up working out quite well and turned out deliciously! It did taste a bit like french toast. Delicious with a little butter and jam or brown sugar. Great for being on a budget!

This was pretty good, and a great way to use the plain instant oats packets my husband refuses to eat from the mixed box... I added one packet of Splenda to each pancake. I can see where it does resemble the texture of French toast, as some have said, as this is dense and eggy and filling.

I used about double the amount of quick oats (3 handfulls), some nutritional yeast flakes, a couple of teaspoons of gluten flour and a dash of baking powder. It made 2 pancakes that turned out great!

Have tried this twice now. First time with larger cut oats and no water - mistake not adding water. Dense pancake, but didn't get hungry all morning. Second time I turned my larger cut oats into oat flour, added a few pecans, and added the water and it was much better. Adding some cinnamon was nice, too. LIked how easy it was to throw together and how long it curbed my hunger.

Made for Healthy Choices 2008 ABC. I really wasn't sure what to expect from this. I've seen many recipes like this and the idea of mixing oatmeal and egg and then frying it just didn't appeal to me. I finally tried it and am glad that I did. It reminded me quite a bit of French toast, which I haven't had for along time because of a wheat allergy. This will be made on those mornings when I need a quick breakfast. I did use quick cooking oats as the instant oatmeal packets don't work for me and it worked quite well. Thanks for posting this Math Mom!
