Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancakes

Yield: 10 large 5-inch pancakes
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats – if you only have rolled oats, pulse them a few times in a food processor
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tbls. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs – beaten
  • 3 tbls. butter – melted
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together oats, buttermilk, cinnamon and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours).
  2. In a large bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. (You may also do this the night before.)
  3. The next morning, make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the oatmeal mixture, eggs, melted butter and remaining buttermilk. Stir until just moistened.
  4. Allow batter to sit for 20 minutes before cooking. If batter is too thick, add 1 tbls. buttermilk at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  5. Heat a griddle to medium heat (350 degrees). Spray lightly with cooking spray and drop by 1/3 cup onto the hot surface. Sprinkle raisins on top of the batter.
  6. Cook pancakes until bubbles appear and bottom turns golden brown; flip pancakes, and cook until lightly browned on opposite side.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Mother's Day was this Sunday here. It's so odd that the two are two weeks apart. My husband always panics when I call my mom on the American mother's day until I remind him the French one is still two weeks away.

I've been obsessed with raisins lately (no idea why) and these look like a wonderful breakfast – or dinner/breakfast. Do you recommend maple syrup with them?

    Crazy! I had no idea they were on different days. Aren't raisins delicious? I'm on a dried fruit kick myself. I definitely recommend maple syrup with them; it's delish 🙂
