They will quickly become a weekend brunch recipe staple!It happens all too frequently that there’s a recipe I make all the time but it never seems to make its way onto the blog. 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.

They will quickly become a weekend brunch recipe staple!The part that stopped me from sharing these pancakes, which are by far the most common in our little casa is that I usually need to dig in right away. 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.

    1. I put the ingredients into MyFitnessPal and half the recipe (4 pancakes) is approximately 890cal, 28g fat, 124g carb, 15g fibre, 39g protein

  1. 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!

  2. I tried your recipe, and loved it, even the kids said it’s better than the normal pancakes. Thanks for making something we love , not feel so guilty. Loved, loved, loved ❤️

    1. Yes! You’ll just need to add a little bit of almond milk to the batter before cooking as it will thicken up in the fridge.

  3. jut made these for my gluten sensitive son, added some coconut flour and extra water and no yogurt, and they are TASTY

  4. Thank you so much for this recipe ! It turned out perfectly super fluffy! I replaced the yogurt and eff with vegan options and it was still amazing 🙂 thank you !!!

  5. Is this 2 cups of oats, then ground into flour?
    Or 2 cups of already ground up oats? My magic bullet grinds them up super fine, so it would make a big difference if Inmixed it up!
    Thanks, really looking forward to trying this recipe as soon as I hear back.

  6. Hi, Davida! I stumbled upon your blog while searching for overnight oat recipes. I tried these pancakes this morning and they tasted fab! I do have to say that they weren’t fluffy, but more dense, which I did enjoy. A few weeks ago I tried your avocado chocolate chip muffins and they were also yummy. I’m not GF or vegan, but I am trying out new recipes that don’t include so many animal products or wheat, just to incorporate more variety into my diet. Going to make the oatmeal banana blender pancakes tomorrow….for dinner!
