Cookies -- I Mean, Pancakes -- For Breakfast

My children are not always eager to eat breakfast when they wake up each morning. They prefer to sit around and spend some time waking up. Unfortunately, the time they spend is valuable time that we need them to use getting ready for school. I've learned that if they wake up to the smell of something pleasant cooking, it whets their appetites and they come downstairs practically drooling and asking what's for breakfast. These pancakes let off the aroma of baking cookies and taste just as good.

Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

What You Need:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • butter and/or maple syrup for serving
How it's Done:
  1. Combine flour, oats, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder, and sea salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Whisk in sour cream, then melted butter and milk. Stir in vanilla.
  2. Add wet ingredients all at once to dry. Stir just until moistened.
  3. Drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle or skillet heated to medium to medium-high.
  4. Sprinkle each pancake with a few raisins and a few chocolate chips. Let the pancake cook until bubbles break the surface, and then flip them and finish cooking, about 30 seconds longer.
  5. Serve with butter and maple syrup, or just eat plain. They're really good that way, too.
