This past weekend I was craving a chocolate chip cookie. I’m not sure why, it just sounded good. This morning I went on a long run and was excited to come home and make something yummy and filled with carbs (why else would I run?! :).  I decided to take my craving for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and turn it into a simple pancake recipe. I figured with some oats and wheat flour, they might not be such a bad way to start our day. Ha! Either way, these pancakes were super fluffy, very moist and had great texture and flavor. We all gobbled them up and they were a great way to start our day. Next time you want to try a new pancake recipe, this is the one for you. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the water, powdered milk, oil, egg and brown sugar. Once the mixture is smooth, add the remaining ingredients. Fold in the flour and oats until the batter has come together and the flour is incorporated. Don't over mix. If the batter is too thin, add a little more flour. Visa versa, if the batter is too thick, add a little more milk or water to thin the batter out. Heat a flat griddle to medium heat. Spray with cooking spray or a thin layer of butter. Pour a 1/4-1/3 cup of the batter onto the griddle. Sprinkle on the top with several chocolate chips (or raisins). Once the bottom side of the pancake is golden brown, flip the pancake and cook until the second side is browned and the center of the pancake is cooked through. Serve the warm pancakes with syrup or whipping cream.
