“Filled with oats, pears and almonds, these pancakes are hearty and slightly sweet. I originally got this recipe from The Old Farmers Almanac Everyday Cookbook and streamlined it a bit for our family. The presentation is pretty and I love all the healthy ingredients. We serve with homemade maple syrup.”
