Oatmeal Pancakes with Chocolate Chips

Hi everyone! Today's video is another somewhat healthy recipe, it's not a 100% healthy food, but it's healthier than other options, so hopefully you will give it a try and will love it as much as I do. I love pancakes, and I wish I could eat them every-other day, but of course they are filled with bad carbs, and fat and sugar and all those things that go directly to our thighs and belly.. so they are not a healthy option at all. But for this recipe I'm using Oat flour, so instead of having all the bad carbs in regular flour, we get all the nutrition of  Old Fashion Oats with all the flavor and deliciousness of a fluffy pancake. So hopefully you can give this one a try!

  • 1½ cups Old Fashion Oats
  • ½ cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1¼ cups Milk
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Tablespoons butter (optional)

In the blender, blend the old fashion oats for about 3 minutes or until it turns into flour. (very fine powder).

Now in a bowl, combine the oatmeal flour with the all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt, mix well to combined. Then add in the milk, the egg, and vanilla extract, stir together until they dry ingredients are well incorporated with the wet ingredients, and if you think your batter is too thick, feel free to add more milk. Once everything is well combined, you can stir in the chocolate chips, but if you want to control the amount of chocolate that goes into your pancakes, I recommend you add the chocolate chips individually to each pancake.

Preheat a skillet, and once it is hot, add some butter, once the butter is melted, pour some of the batter right into the skillet (if you didn't add the chocolate chips into the batter, then, now top the batter/pancake with as many chocolate chips as you like!) and cook for about 2 minutes or until the surface of your pancake is filled with bubbles, then flip around and continue to cook for another 2 more minutes or until the pancake is completely cooked!

Continue to repeat this step until all the pancakes are cooked. Serve with your favorite syrup and garnish with more butter and chocolate chips, if you like! Enjoy!
