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.

    Can you store unused batter in the fridge?

      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.

    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.

    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!

    Thanks!

        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

    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 ??
