F.W.'s Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pancakes!

 


I can't stop thinking about F.W.'s chocolate chip oatmeal pancakes. They sound yummy. Can I have the recipe? Thank you!

O
kay Melissa, it wasn't easy, but we managed to get the recipe for you. We didn't have problems because F.W. was trying to hide the secret family recipe or anything, but because he didn't have the recipe! It turns out that this is a recipe his mom taught him and he's always just remembered it, but he remembered it as a pinch of this, a dash of that, and paw full of the other thing. He had no real measurements at all! So we sent F.W. into the MCFC test kitchens, with our master chef Moo-Cow, to work out a recipe everyone could follow. It took a lot of batches of delicious pancakes to get it right, but they finally got it down to a written recipe F.W. is happy with. Here is the outcome and we have to admit, they really are delicious!

 

These are the pancakes my mom always made me back when I lived in Australia. They are my favorite and are now a favorite of my friends in the MCFC gang! I hope you lke them too. Enjoy! -F.W.


You'll Need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (or 3 tablespoons of olive oil)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Cooking Instructions:


1
.
Whisk all dry ingredients, except for chocolate chips, together in a bowl.


2
.
Whisk all wet ingredients together in another bowl.


3.
Whisk dry ingredient mixture into wet mixture until just blended.


4.
Fold chocolate chips into batter (have a few for yourself while you do this).


5
.
Heat skillet over medium heat and melt a thin layer of butter to coat bottom.


6.
Add some pancake batter to pan (whatever size you prefer, Moo-Cow makes them big). Cook batter until bubbles form on the top and the bottoms are golden brown. Flip the pancake and cook other side until it is also golden brown.


7
.
Remove from pan and top with preferred pancake topping. Try not to eat too many, they're filling!

Chef's Notes:

These pancakes are not as airy as some. They have a bit more of a soft custardy center, so don't be tricked into thinking you undercooked them. They are good enough to eat without syrup if you want to cut out some sugar. Moo-Cow's also given an olive oil alternative to the butter if you would like to cut down on fat. I think they taste just as good with olive oil, as do most things that butter is normally used in. Here is a butter to olive oil conversion chart you can use in your cooking. Give it a try sometime.

Butter to Olive Oil Conversion Chart

  • 1 teaspoon (butter) = 3/4 teaspoon (olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon = 2-1/4 teaspoon
  • 1/4 cup = 3 tablespoons
  • 1/3 cup = 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 cup = 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup = 3/4 cup

 

Also, all pancakes taste better when they are cut to look like flowers
(it is scientifically proven). Here Moo-Cow demonstrates his method for
pancake flowers.

Stack your pancakes and cut a circle in the center going through all of them. Then create the flower petals by cutting in wedge shapes out from the center all the way around stack

Then top with your favorite nectar and eat!

Great Idea!

oooh, this would be a excellent recipe for this summer! I'll get Moo-Cow on it. Do you have a Dandelion Fritter recipe you'd like to share with us?

gomoo's picture

Fritters

I think when you sprinkle powdered sugar on the they are pretty perfect! (to let you in on a little secret, I've only tried them that way) I will try to try diffrent kinds but my Dad mowed the lawn so we won't have any for a while, and not to be rude, but four cups is way too much! I only ate about a cup's worth of dandelions.

go moo-cow! go Ramses! go F.W.! go Keby! go Kiweenie!
go willy t.! go Rhetorical! go! go! go! goooooooo!

Thanks to you for the

Thanks to you for the Recipes. I dont like to cook but for such a chocolate flavored dish I should try once. I had ate such a dish in candy store near me and since then, I am a fan and hence i was searching for such a dish.

I made these this morning

I made these this morning when I realized I didn't have any pancake mix. This was my first time making pancakes from scratch and as a new mom I appreciate how healthy they are. They were delicious! Thanks.
