Oatmeal Pancakes



I really don't know what to call these oatmeal things.  They are a cross between a cookie and a pancake.  We eat them as both.  I make a batch in the morning and we'll eat the leftovers throughout the day as a snack.  They don't look like much but man are they good.


1 cup oatmeal
1 cup soymilk or any other non dairy milk
2 T flour
2 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla extract
1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I use Trader Joes)

Mix everything together while a skillet is heating with a little bit of coconut oil.  I use a cast iron griddle.  But use whatever you've got.

Drop by spoonfuls onto hot grill.  Keep an eye out because they cook quickly.  I like them a little overdone (some may call it burned) but do keep watch.

They need no syrup but a little Earth Balance margarine is good when they are hot of the griddle.  Larry loves to take them backpacking.  They are quite filling and great with morning coffee.  I'll slice some fresh fruit on the side for breakfast.  Can anyone think of a clever name for them?  xo

  5. Thanks for this recipe I'll definitely be trying it out. We've finally gone plant-based and I'm looking for quick breakfast recipes, something hot off the griddle is just the thing. I bet these would be good with dried cherries instead of chocolate chips? I'm gonna try it! xx

  8. The chocolate naughtiness surely makes them naughtioats! But oh what a special tree you have, Janet, it looks like a great climbing tree and I can just imagine a treehouse balanced on its sturdy branches.

  9. No idea what to name them...they look good and I am betting they will be very tasty.
    I've got some dried cranberries so I might use them as I have run out of chocolate chips as I have made a lot of banana bread for the grandchildren and I always add a handful of chocolate chips to the loaves....not sure why our bananas are getting over ripe so fast these days?

  17. Pookies? I also thought of pancookies.

  18. These look so good and I will be making them. In the spirit of me calling pancakes "panny cakes" as a child, I will delightfully refer to these as "oatty cakes" !

  19. They sound great - except I'm not a chocolate fan. Liked Dani's idea of dried cherries instead - or could try sultanas and maybe some roughly chopped walnuts. Family will be visiting this weekend - might try this. Best wishes, Pammie x

  20. Your pancakes remind me of the drop scones and Scotch pancakes that I found in Mary Berry's (of the Great British Baking Show)book, 100 Cakes and Bakes.. I am fascinated by the show and bought the book to try out a few things. I am not much of a baker, but the show has inspired me to give it a go.

  21. Is the T of baking soda correct? Wondered if it was meant to be a t?

  22. "Cottage Cakes" would be perfectly fitting for the "Gardener's Cottage".
