I added a 1/2 tsp. of salt and a tsp. of vanilla. I also added about a cup of fresh blueberries. I suggest letting the batter sit for a couple minutes to soak up some of the wet. Oatmeal, corn meal and wheat flour will do that if you let it rest after mixing. These turned out fluffy and tasted great. I'd make these again. I might add another 1/2 c. of oatmeal next time, the batter was just a little thin, even after letting it sit for 15 minutes.


These were very fluffy, and we loved the combination of grains. The cornmeal adds a fun crunch. After reading tat2wttrsh's comment about the thin batter, I put together the batter last night, and let it sit in the fridge until this morning. It was thin when I first mixed it together, but the flours and oats did soak up all the extra liquid overnight, and the batter was just right this morning.

The kids said these were the best pancakes, and I agree. The cornmeal adds a great crunch, and they have great flavor and sweetness, in spite of the low amount of sugar. This is definitely a keeper. I had to add more whole wheat flour (1/3-1/2 c.) to make the consistently thicker. I used old-fashioned rolled oats vs. quick. I used powdered buttermilk mixed with 1 cup water, 1 cup milk. I also added a couple teaspoons of vanilla and few dashes salt. I love that it's such a healthy recipe, so easy, and so delicious! It made 16 - 4" pancakes, enough for freezing.
