In a word, SWEET...I cut the amount of chips and cranberries by half as given the small amount of batter 1/2 cup each seemed like a lot. Even so, I probably could have done without the added sugar. I used white whole wheat flour, regular oats and 1/4t soda (to avoid a "chemical" flavor) with fine results, and nonfat plain yogurt instead of buttermilk, stirring gently so as not to release too much whey. The consistency of the batter seemed about right; not too thin and needing just a bit of help to spread out, although the pancakes took several minutes (more than 3) to cook on the first side. For me this made 7 pancakes. I try to avoid the candy-for-breakfast type entrees but this is a good, "different" recipe I would make again.
