Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pancakes

pancakes cookies

Chock full of hearty oats and melty chocolate chips, you’ll feel like you are eating cookie dough for breakfast!

Hmm. The same can be said for my Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal.

I guess I just really like chocolate for breakfast.

No, I didn’t really top my pancakes—the ones I actually ate—with chocolate syrup. But I’d cooked a batch the day before and put them in a plastic bag to stay fresh. Well, silly me didn’t know that if you cover a batch of pancakes, they get gooey-moist and go bad. No worries; I now had a whole batch of pancakes to use for a crazy photo shoot. So the pancakes didn’t go to waste. (I hate wasting food.) And the next day, I quickly made up a new batch to eat for real.

Cookie Dough Pancakes

(Serves 1-2)

  • 1/3 cup spelt or white flour (40g)
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (40g)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract and optional 3 drops almond extract
  • pinch stevia OR 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder (and optional pinch baking soda for flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp ener-g egg (or just add extra baking powder)
  • up to 1/2 cup water or milk of choice
  • chocolate chips!

Mix all the dry ingredients. (This can be done days in advance.) Put liquid ingredients into dry, then stir. Cook on medium-low, flipping 1/2-way through.

    I love pancakes with oats, I always make them like this and they taste much much better! I also like to add pumpkin or pear puree, it is oure heaven:)

  2. Megan says

    SO delicious! You are so creative! I love trying new varieties of pancakes and this is on my list for sure. Thanks for all the healthy and fun ideas!

    I used to eat chocolate for breakfast several times a week when my usual breakie was oatmeal or pancakes, but lately I’ve been sticking to peanut butter toast and fruit. Simple, fast, makes me feel good. Sometimes I follow it up with a square of Endangered Species though.

    Yum!

    I never have chocolate at breakfast, and tend to crave it after lunch or dinner. If my breakfasts are too sweet, I get super thirsty, so I save chocolate for later in the day when I’m more hydrated.

    Hey Katie! I’ve been reading your blog the last few days and just saw your post on Bliss Cafe. I haven’t been there yet, but I’m dying to go! Are you in Dallas?

  6. Hela says

    I am so gonna make this tomorrow!! I don´t have chocolate every day, but I surely do have oats every day 🙂

  7. Ellie says

    No joke, I eat your oatmeal cookie pancakes AT LEAST once a week! I’ve put raisins in, but never chocolate. Yummmmmmy!

  8. Lilly says

    chocolate is often involved with bfast when the craving strikes. But my goodness, your photos look crazy amazing – you are so skilled in so many ways girl!

    These look amazing, Katie! I eat chocolate for breakfast *almost* everyday…is this bad, I wonder? I add pure Dutch cocoa powder to my oats and generally melt in a little dark chocolate for good measure. Oh, and I add a spoon of peanut butter. It seems I have a chocolate/PB problem! 😉

  10. Jess says

    Yum! These look great 🙂

    Also, I always let my extra pancakes/waffles cool completely on a cooling rack before packing them away in the fridge. That way there’s not heat to create excess moisture!
