Fluffy pancakes are loaded with crumbled Oreo cookies in these decadent Oreo Pancakes. Topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup, they’re an Oreo lover’s dream come true.
I handed my brother a stack of these pancakes (actually the stack pictured above) while he was visiting us last month. He raised an eyebrow at me when I told him they were Oreo pancakes, but he was sold from the very first bite.
He enjoyed these pancakes every bit as much as the kids and I did.
We actually had these pancakes for dessert one night. (Who doesn’t love a dessert this fantastic that you can make in about 15 minutes?) Sometimes, pancakes feel more like a dessert and this is most definitely one of those times.
Served for a sweet breakfast or a fun dessert, Oreo pancakes get rave reviews. The cookie pieces in the pancake batter soften just enough on the griddle, adding wonderful texture and sweetness.
If you’ve been around for any length of time, then you probably know that we’re huge fans of eating pancakes for breakfast – or for lunch or dinner. I love pretty much every iteration of this breakfast classic.
If you make pancakes often, nothing beats a great electric griddle for streamlining the cooking process. A few years ago, when my 15-year-old griddle finally died, I tested every single griddle I could get my hands on. When I finally tried this extra large electric griddle, I knew I’d found THE ONE. It’s a little on the spendy side, but I am telling you now, it beats all the others hands-down.
This nylon flexible turner is a pancake-making must-have, as is a dough whisk. If you aren’t familiar with the awesomeness that is a dough whisk for pancakes and waffles, you are missing out. It’s a crazy-looking tool, but it stirs the batter just enough without overmixing it.
I’ve tried pretty much all of the nifty pancake-pouring gadgets out there, and I stand by a good old measuring cup as the easiest way to make pancakes. I use the ¼ or ⅓ cup sizes for most pancake making – this set that I use every day will allow you to improvise for all kinds of sizes.
When making standard-size 4-inch pancakes, the large scoop in this set of cookie scoops is my favorite way to dispense the batter. The medium scoop works perfectly for smaller-sized pancakes.
How to Make Oreo Pancakes
You’ll need the following ingredients to make this recipe:
- flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt
- milk, eggs, and butter
- vanilla extract
- Oreo cookies
To begin, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add in the milk and the eggs and whisk to combine.
Then, add the melted butter and vanilla and whisk once more. Stir in the Oreo pieces and let the batter rest while the griddle or pan heats up.
Heat a flat-bottom, nonstick skillet or electric griddle over medium heat. Butter the skillet or griddle lightly and then pour about 3 tablespoons of batter onto the griddle for each pancake.
Let them cook undisturbed until they begin to bubble on top and are lightly browned on the bottom. Then, flip and cook the second side just until golden brown. Serve warm with the toppings of your choice.
If making a larger batch to freeze, let the pancakes cool fully before putting them in a zip close bag. Reheat them in the microwave. I often triple pancake recipes for my family, so we’ll have plenty in the freezer for easy breakfasts.
