There's nothing like a stack of homemade Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Top them with butter and a drizzle of syrup to kick start your day.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Some days, I just can't help myself but make these decadent pancakes for my boys. They're quite happy to eat these pancakes for breakfast with butter and maple syrup or for dessert with chocolate syrup and whipped cream.
Old Fashioned Oats adds to the Pancakes Texture
The old fashioned oats give these pancakes the most spectacular texture that appeals to our family's love for oatmeal. Whether I'm baking a batch of loaded oatmeal chocolate chip cookies or baking apple cinnamon baked oatmeal for brunch I can always find oatmeal in my pantry. It's a pantry staple that has so many uses, I keep it on hand.
Helpful Tips for Making Pancakes
- This recipe specifically utilizes old fashioned oats, not quick cooking or instant.
- Soaking the oats prior to incorporating with the other ingredients allows them time to soften and absorb the liquid. Don't skip it.
- Depending on how you divide the pancake batter, the yield may vary. If you make the rounds large, you'll have less pancakes and if you make them smaller, you'll end up with more. Adjust to how many you need and you can't go wrong.
- These pancakes can be made, cooled and wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for up to one month. Reheat gently in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop.
- You can use semi sweet or milk chocolate chips in this recipe with no other adjustments needed.
