Oreo Cookie Pancakes

These healthy and vegan Oreo pancakes are the perfect breakfast for any Oreo lover.

Oreo Cookie Pancakes???

With a simple cookies ‘n cream filling sandwiched between each fluffy chocolate layer, it’s enough to make Michelle Obama call a state of emergency for the breakfast table.

But the First Lady needn’t worry, as these decadent Oreo pancakes pose no threat whatsoever to her Let’s Move campaign for healthier kids. They are secretly filled with fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium, probiotics, and the most important healthy ingredient of all: chocolate.

This weekend I had fun playing host to a friend from middle school and her daughter, Kristin (whom I’ve mentioned before on the blog).

I told Kristin I would make her anything she wanted for breakfast, and she got a mischievous look in her eye and said, “Oreo cookies!”

So I asked her, “What about Oreo pancakes?” and she decided that was an even better idea than cookies.

If it were up to me, I would’ve made a frosting with coconut butter.

I am so predictable.

But Kristin doesn’t like coconut butter. In her words, it is “yucky.” So we went vanilla yogurt instead.

Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with vinegar—it adds a lightness to baked goods, which can be enormously beneficial when using whole-grain flours.

The pancakes turned out light and fluffy without the need for any eggs.

If desired, feel free to substitute the yogurt filling for Coconut Whipped Cream.

Oreo Cookie Pancakes

These healthy and vegan Oreo pancakes are the perfect breakfast for any Oreo lover.
5/5 (4)
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 1 serving


  • 2 Oreos or Healthy Oreos
  • 1 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 5 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp oil (sub applesauce only if you like the taste of fat-free pancakes)
  • 1/4 cup spelt, white, or gf ap flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp sweetener of choice
  • 1/3 cup yogurt (I like nondairy)


  • Whisk first 4 ingredients. Set aside. Combine next 5 ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Place a non-stick pan, greased with either oil or oil spray, over medium heat. While it heats, pour wet into dry and stir until just mixed. Then cook your pancakes (I did mine in two batches), adjusting the heat a little lower if necessary. Flip when bubbles appear and the sides are just cooked enough to flip without breaking. Meanwhile, combine the final two ingredients, then spread on the pancakes.

    Ha! I made cookies n cream pancakes too on my blog! Big fluffy ones. They are very healthy, OIL free, refined sugar free. I also made my own Oreo crumbs and “cream”. Yours look really good Katie and beautiful photos!

  2. Joan says

    Hi – unfortunately I’m allergic to yogurt – all kinds. What would you substitute for the coconut yogurt?


  3. Gina B. says

    I made these this morning, and the flavors were great… but how did you get the batter to make such round, circular pancakes? Our batter seemed a little tough, and I couldn’t get enough out in time to make them thin like in the picture. I’d love to learn your tricks so I can make these again!

  4. Dru Falco says

    Hi, Katie! I’ve been meaning to comment on this for almost a week. I looove your blog. A looot. I linked these pancakes to my Pancake Links post last Sunday, they looked fantastic, I hope that’s okay! xo

  5. Violet says

    eating these now. deeeeee-licious. they totally TASTE like oreo pancakes, like a lot like oreo flavor! amazing!!!!! i love these MORE than your brownie batter pancakes which i also love! only downside was they were kinda hard to flip, but my pan is not that great.

      • Anonymous says

        I don’t know why I had trouble flipping these the first time I made them. I’ve never had a problem since! eating more of these now… stevia-sweetened kefit is a good topping for non-vegans. and walnuts… mmmmmm

  6. Jen B says

    I made these this morning and they were absolutely fantastic!! Thank you so much for creating delicious breakfast recipes for one! My husband is in the coast guard and when he is out to sea these are the perfect breakfast – when he is home I just double the recipe!

  7. Violet says

    I tried adapting this recipe into my oatmeal this morning to get an oreo flavored oatmeal! it is good but I think you could do better. I know u have multiple chocolate oatmeals posted but I love these pancakes more than those so an oreo oatmeal would probably be even more awesome!

  8. Hello says

    It is not even breakfast time and I am so going to eat them for lunch. Katie, you are amazing. Can you come over to my house and make me everything you know?

  9. Kaylee says

    These were delicious! I made them today and they were so filling! I couldn’t even finish them! However I would suggest using the whole container of yogurt because the filling is delicious and you WILL want more of it. 🙂 Thank you so much for this recipe!

  10. Lily says

    This was my first pancake recipe of yours! I could not believe how amazing these were! I followed the recipe to the T until the sweetener in which I added 1 T of coconut sugar. My pancakes turned out quite thick (they made four), but, nevertheless, they were AMAZING! Unintentionally, I let out a gleeful giggle when I took my first bite! I also made these using your oreo recipe which I made last night; they were amazing in my pancakes! (I haven’t tried them by themselves). Thank you SOSOSOSOSOSO much for your recipes!

  11. Heather says

    Made these this morning, and my husband said they were the best pancakes he’s ever had. I just had a small problem with the coconut oil. It was originally liquid form because my kitchen was a little bit hot. Then I added it into the milk-vinegar-vanilla mix and stirred. While I was getting the dry ingredients ready , the coconut oil re-solidified from the cold milk and it formed a layer on top. I had to heat it up in the microwave and re-stir it. Lesson of the story–maybe use room temperature milk if you’re using the coconut oil.

  12. Jocelyn says

    Out of eggs this morning, so all my usual breakfast faves were not an option. Made this instead ( substituting 1 tbps chopped 70% chocolate as I couldn’t possibly be trusted to keep Oreos in the cupboard) and… Wowzers! These are delicious. Thanks CCK!

  13. Sophie says

    I love your recipes! The pancake ones are absolutely amazing! 🙂 could you maybe think about doing a pumpkin pancake single serving recipe?? Thank you for all your amazing recipes!! 😀

  14. Al Green says

    These look amazing! Cookies and Cream is my favorite ice cream and my wife loves trying to make healthy pancakes.

    Right now her favorite thing to do is put protein in them. She also put yogurt, which is a little weird.

    These things look awesome though. I think I found my wife’s new favorite site.

  15. Elizabeth says

    You just combined two of my favourite things and I brought a little variation to my Pancake Saturdays. I am forever indebted to you 🙂

  16. Nesh78 says

    I’m so sick of the “secretly healthy” when I see these recipes on pinterest. It’s just yogurt. Yogurt doesn’t even mean healthy.. it’s not indulgent healthy either. It’s just yogurt… it’s not creative. You can do better.

  17. Alexis says

    Just out of curiosity, how big are those Oreos? Do they make jumbo sized ones? Cause they look almost the same size as the delicious pancakes? : P

  18. Dashona says

    Thanks a lot for this receipe. When I first say the picture I thought this would be too much to make, but when I say The ingredients and instructions,I thought to myself ok I can totally do this. I will be making these Christmas morning. Thanks again!

  19. Maddie says

    Hi Katie!
    I write for Spoon University, a food publication for college students and I’m writing an article on “guilt-free ways to eat dessert for breakfast” and I’m hoping to feature your oreo pancakes! Is it ok if I use one of the photos from the recipe? I will give credits to Chocolate Covered Katie. Thanks so much!

  20. Madeline says

    I have been looking forward to making these for about 2 weeks and finally i am having them for dinner tonight…. it’s mid afternoon and I am quite honestly wishing the hours away haha!

  21. Chocolate Covered Katie says

    Thanks for letting me know. I honestly have no idea why so many people think it’s okay to plagiarize… but it makes me happy that readers like you take the time to look out for me. At least there are some good people in the world 🙂

  22. Aimee B. says

    These look delicious! What brand of salt and baking powder do you use in this recipe? The amount of sodium you have listed in the nutrition facts seems way off to me because just 1/8 teaspoon of salt has 290 mg sodium and the 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder has 300 mg. The total that’s listed for the entire recipe is only 299 mg of sodium, and it seems it should be about double that, not including the cookie(s) and yogurt. Normally, I wouldn’t care, but I’m now on a low sodium diet for health reasons and have to be super careful, so thought I’d ask. Thanks so much.
