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” Β 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. Hi!

    I was wondering if you have the nutrition chart for your oatmeal Chocolate chips pancakes by any chance?

    Thanks!

    Eilnaz

      1. You said.. “I also do not provide nutrition profiles on my recipes as I strongly believe that quality takes precedence to quantity.”
        Except if your Diabetic and then Nutrition information is very very important..
        Still won’t stop me from making these for my Type 1 daughter just wish I didn’t have to look up every single ingredient to be able to get a carb count

  2. These turned out heavy and dense and well, not at all for fluffy. And slightly bitter. I followed the recipe exactly except I omitted the choc chips. I’m curious if this is just a preference thing due to all the positive comments although most of them are about how they look and not actually how they tasted post actually trying them. My kids took one bite and spit them out. I’ve made many GF pancakes so I’m not a rookie … Also not a blogger. Any ideas ??

  3. Any way to leave out the yogurt all together or a dairy free replacement idea? I was sooooo excited to see this recipe and my heart sank when I saw the yogurt. I can’t have dairy. Thank you.

  4. These are the best pancakes ever and I didn’t feel bad for eating them ???????? I used vanilla Greek yogurt and vanilla flavored unsweetened almond milk. I am never using boxed pancake mix again.

    1. Aw thanks Tea! I’m actually eating some right now with a bit of added pumpkin spice. I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed them!

  5. These are amazing!! Have made them twice now, I normally make chocolate chip pancakes with Bisquick but these are an awesome, healthier, substitute thank you πŸ™‚

    1. Aw I’m so happy to hear that! They’re my go-to pancakes too and they’re always a hit! Thanks so much for sharing πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Danielle,

      Dry subbing in some applesauce or pumpkin. Might not be quite as fluffy but it should still do the trick. You may want to decrease the almond milk if it’s looking a little runny. Enjoy!
