Sometimes it’s because I’m lazy, sometimes it’s because I think you guys may not like it, and sometimes it’s because I’m too damn hungry to set up a photoshoot.

The latter is precisely the case with these pancakes.

Pancakes are easy to make (once you get the flip down, which only took me 24 years to master!) but can be impossible to photograph. Ironically, I probably have more pancake recipes on THM than any other kind of recipes.

I obviously feel this way about all of my recipe, but one of my tricks to not eating my subject is to always eat something else before I shoot.

However, because pancakes are reserved for the weekend when they’re the first thing I eat when I wake up I never get a chance to eat before shooting. And I would probably keel over and die if I attempted the “syrup pour”  while hangry.

Ninja skills are required to get that kind of shot.

Then one day I realized if I made a double batch, ate, threw the other half in the oven and then photographed AFTER eating, I might be able to finally share THE FLUFFIEST Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes with all of you!

Oatmeal-Chocolate-PancakesBetter yet, if I fed C I could recruit him to help with the above photo. You know you’ve found a winner when he agrees to “carefully pour syrup in a luscious manner” all over your pancakes.

That sounds dirty.

Anyway, he apprehensively agreed (bribery with pancakes is key folks!) and helped me pull off the pancake syrup pour GIF I’ve been dreaming about in my head for 2 years now. Certainly a step up from that time I literally drowned my pancakes and completely missed the mark.

It also means I can finally share the best pancakes ever with you! DIG.IN.

    I LOVE these pancakes. The day i realized they had more protein and less sugar than my favorite healthy banana pancakes was an exciting day- I had been trying not to make them too often, and now I feel good making them as often as I want. It is nice to get an early start on my chocolate consumption quota for the day Haha. I make a variety of healthy pancakes an average of 5 days per week, and this is one of my all time favorite pancake recipes. Seriously, thank you!
