This decadent Oreo pancakes recipe is easy to prepare and is sure to be a huge hit with kids and adults alike. If you are looking for a special breakfast or dessert to satisfy a sweet tooth with your favorite cookies and cream treat, these fluffy pancakes infused with chocolatey Oreo cookie flavor will be an instant crowd-pleaser.
What are they?
Oreo pancakes are traditional pancakes with crushed Oreo cookies folded into the batter. These are just as easy to prepare as regular pancakes and cook up just as effortlessly as well, but rather than getting a drizzle of maple syrup, we top these cakes with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.
Ingredients and Substitutions
- All-purpose flour
- Granulated sugar
- Oreo cookies - You want regular Oreos, not double stuffed.
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Table salt
- Milk - Add more or less milk as needed to get the batter to be a pourable consistency.
- Large eggs - In a pinch, you can make pancakes without eggs.
How to make them
Begin making this Oreo pancake recipe by first combining the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. This includes your flour, sugar, crushed Oreo cookie pieces, baking powder, baking soda, and table salt.
Beat your eggs in a separate medium bowl, then whisk with your milk and butter until well combined. The wet ingredients can then be folded into your flour mixture to form your pancake batter.
Heat your griddle to 350 degrees, and lightly grease it with butter or cookie spray. For small pancakes, pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle and let cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip the pancakes and cook for an additional couple of minutes, until both sides are golden brown.
Serve the pancakes with whipped topping, chocolate syrup, and additional crushed cookies. This would also be great to serve with ice cream and my chocolate coffee syrup.
Storing & Reheating Leftovers
Leftover pancakes should be stored in your refrigerator in an airtight container or ziploc bag and enjoyed within five days. Alternatively, they can be frozen for up to two months. Microwaving them is the easiest way to reheat them, but gently warming them in a 350 degree oven for five minutes will give you the best flavor and texture.
Although you can make these Oreo pancakes in advance, they won't be as good as serving them fresh. Similarly, making the batter in advance will result in denser pancakes than cooking them up immediately. However, both can be done if you are pressed for time.
