We made this pancake recipe this morning and I just had to share because it was so yummy!
We altered our original whole wheat / flax pancake recipe to include oatmeal so it could have that "oatmeal cookie" flow to it .. And it worked :) They didn't last long this morning! They're delicious and full of yummy nutrients to kick-start the day.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip "Cookie" Pancakes
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1 tbsp ground flax
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk (use more or less for your desired pancake consistency!)
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
Mix your dry ingredients together, then blend in your wet ingredients until well mixed. Spoon into a lightly greased (we use Pam) frying pan. Cook over stovetop, medium heat, and flip halfway through cooking to ensure it cooks through on both sides.
This recipe yielded three large pancakes and two medium-sized ones .. And one medium-sized pancake filled me right up. And needless to say, it was a hit with the kids!
(And ps .. I'll be posting a Mama Lego Update soon!)
