Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

Our family's favorite pancake recipe: Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

This week for my “Joy the Baker Cookbook Spotlight” I was able to choose my own recipe from the cookbook. From the day I started stalking Joy one thing stood out to me. She loves pancakes. And has many recipes for them on her blog. Let me just say, the girl knows her flapjacks!

I chose to make her Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes. Oh. Em. Geeeeeee. These are seriously the best pancakes I have ever made. They really do taste like an oatmeal cookie! This is now our Saturday morning pancake recipe. Without a doubt.

I was a little nervous about the kids enjoying these since they had oats, and oats = healthy in our house. But,  they didn’t even notice the oats. Scarfed those pancakes all up! I did leave out the raisins since I knew that would have caused a battle (harder to hide), but I bet they would be quite tasty in these pancakes! Thanks Joy for a winning recipe!

    Oatmeal cookies are one of my biggest vices (hold the rasins, add chocolate chips) and your pancake recipe seems like it would taste exactly like an oatmeal cookie! This is exactly what I crave in the morning, thanks for sharing!
