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!
