My daughter wanted to make breakfast one Saturday morning. Not one to stifle their creative interests (and loving the idea of someone making me breakfast), I told her to check out things I have pinned and see what she wanted to make. She decided on these (healthier) Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes by Finding Joy in My Kitchen. And yes, this is the picture from yesterday's What Is It Wednesday! Everyone guessed it was some type of pancake. I'll have to make it harder next week ;)
Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes
slightly adapted from Finding Joy in My Kitchen
- 1 1/2 C white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 C old fashioned oats
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 T brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- 1 egg (we used Ener-G egg replacer)
- 2 1/2 C skim milk w/2 T. vinegar - (let sit for 5-10 minutes to make) buttermilk
- 1 T maple syrup
- 4 T applesauce
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 C dark chocolate chips
Mix 1 1/2 C white whole wheat flour, 1/2 C oats, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 T brown sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Stir well.
In a second bowl, combine the egg or egg replacer, 2 C buttermilk (skim milk/vinegar), 1 T maple syrup 4 T applesauce and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. Stir well.
Stir together the wet and dry ingredients until just moist; the batter will be slightly lumpy. Allow the batter to sit for 5-7 minutes.
Pre-heat your griddle (to around 350 degrees), and spray with cooking spray. Scoop pancakes onto the hot griddle. (about a 1/2 cup)
Drop chocolate chips onto the pancakes. Cook until bubbles form around the edges and a few in the center. Then flip. Cook until lightly browned.
Someone was quite proud of herself. And she did a GREAT job.
Someone else was quite a fan!
He insisted that I not cut them up, so he was two fisting those pancakes in as hard as he could :)
