Oatmeal meets pancakes with The Fluffiest Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes.

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.

    That drizzle…..

    I hate early morning photoshoots purely for that reason. You are a smart chicken double batching it.

    that drizzle…

    First off, I need this pancakes in my life! The hubby and I make pancakes every weekend as a way to start our weekend together. So these are being added into the mix! And second…oh the pour shot! Yours looks GREAT! I remember trying to pour a soda for an ice cream float. OMG. Soda foam everywhere. Then another time I pour dressing that I had thinned with water, went for the pour and it hit a piece of chicken sending the dressing all over my perfectly styled shoot. Ugh. I guess for every 1 good one we have so many awful ones 😉

    Um I don’t need to bribe my SO to engage in a lascivious pancake syrup pour. It’s just generally not taking place on the food. 🙂

    These look delicious. You nailed the GIF, pun intended.

    Haha there are so many breakfast recipes I make that I haven’t posted yet for the same reason – I always want to eat first thing in the morning, not spend an hour photographing! I’m glad you posted these though because they look awesome!

    I totally understand how your pancake recipe have never make it to the blog before, I make pancakes twice a week and in four years I’ve never photographed them to post! I’m glad you made a double batch this time though as I’ve looked at these photos and been inspired to grind some oat flour to try the recipe tomorrow morning 🙂 It’s the gif with the syrup that did it for me, I swear it gave me hunger pains!

    These look delish – could I use cows milk? Totally get the photo opportunity and reality. The times I’ve made something, carefully photographed how I make it then forget to shoot the finished (usually meal) item. I had to whip my hubby’s dinner outta the microwave, rearrange broccoli and snap a shot or 12 of the beef casserole I’d made!!
    Thanks for this pancake recipe, I love oats and using oat flour is a genius way to get more goodness into our family. Thanks for letting us finally see the pancakes!! Sammie http://www.feastingisfun.com
