Karey's Oatmeal-Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Thanks to my sister-in-law Karey for this awesome new pancake recipe.  With raspberries and chocolate chips, who needs syrup?  These pancakes were perfect with some whipping cream and fresh raspberries. 

 Click here for printable recipe.  

The ingredients:

 1-1/4 cup buttermilk (divided)
1 cup rolled oats
1 large egg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup raspberries (frozen or fresh), slightly mashed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine the oats and one cup of buttermilk and let stand 1 hour or overnight.  (NOTE:  In my natural laziness, I tried to skip this step the first time, but the pancakes did not hold together well at all.  As much as I hate to wait, I highly recommend waiting the full hour before cooking.  Or if you don't mind pancakes that fall apart, they still tasted great!)

After the hour, add a large egg to the oat/buttermilk mixture and stir together.  Then add the brown sugar and melted butter and mix well.  Sift in the dry ingredients and stir to combine.  Stir in 1/4 cup buttermilk, raspberries, and chocolate chips.

Cook on hot, buttered griddle until golden brown on both sides.  Enjoy!

LOVE pancake recipes that are little different than the normal buttermilk or blueberry variety. These look super yum!

These pancakes look delicious! I am going to make them this weekend (unless you want to send Emma out to make them for me?!).

I've had pretty good luck with using quick oats and not soaking (or only soaking for 5 minutes or so), but I usually make the batter a little thicker and make muffins. I can't remember if my pancakes hold together or not! :)

Thanks for posting this for me - I'm so lazy with blogging!

Does it work if you put the oats/buttermilk mixture in the fridge to soak overnight or will that ruin them?

I just happen to have all these ingredients -- looks like we might have found our breakfast for the weekend :)

Danny, I'm soaking the oats and buttermilk tonight to see if it works. :)

It worked great soaking the oats and buttermilk overnight! I'm changing the recipe right now to reflect this!

We tried these this morning -- we soaked the oats overnight and I chopped up the raspberries! YUM!
