Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes have gorgeous crispy edges, a chewy texture, and a punch of sweet chocolate.
Total Time:15 minutes
1/3cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons rolled oats
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4cup plus 2tablespoons buttermilk
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, add your flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk gently to combine everything.
In another bowl or a large measuring cup, add vegetable oil, vanilla, and buttermilk. Whisk to combine.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and quickly and gently fold and stir together until just combined. A few lumps aren't the end of the world, but over-stirring will give you tough pancakes.
Heat a large skillet or griddle with a little bit of butter or oil spread evenly across the pan. Add the pancake batter to the hot pan.I prefer to do one big pancake, but you can split it up into smaller pancakes if you like.
While the first side is cooking, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly onto your pancake or pancakes. After two or three minutes when the edges start to firm up and the bubbles have burst, flip your pancake and cook for another minute or two.
Serve hot with butter and syrup or whatever you like on your pancakes.
