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??
OATMEAL COOKIE PANCAKES
Makes approximately 8 pancakes
1/2 cup quick oats
1 cup flour
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
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
- 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.
- 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.
- Cook pancake batter on a hot griddle as you would traditional pancakes. Serve and enjoy.
