Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

What better than cookies for dessert? Cookies for breakfast! Okay, okay, these arn’t really cookies, but it’s close enough to convince my belly that I had cookies for breakfast.

It didn’t occur to me how long it had been since I made pancakes until I saw this recipe. You would think after years and years of growing up with fresh pancakes made by my dad, that I would feel the absolute necessity to continue that trend on my own. Whoops, guess not. Oh and in case I haven’t told you already my dad is pretty awesome in the cookie department as well, so a recipe combining the two was the perfect fix for my pancake drought.

Now the question changes – what’s better than cookies for breakfast??


Makes approximately 8 pancakes


1/2 cup quick oats

1 cup flour

3 Tbsp brown sugar

Pinch salt

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup finely shredded coconut (optional)

1/4 raisins (optional)

1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

1/4 cup cinnamon chips or mini chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon until mixed. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla and buttermilk. Pour the buttermilk and egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk together just until the ingredients are incorporated.
  2. Add whatever additional add-in’s you’d like. I used chopped walnuts and chocolate chips, but feel free to add any (or none) of your favorite oatmeal cookie parts and pieces.
  3. Cook pancake batter on a hot griddle as you would traditional pancakes. Serve and enjoy.
