Philly was a par-tay, I’m already craving a good cheesesteak. But we are back in Arlington, VA now and um, it snowed last night! It hasn’t snowed before while we’ve been here so I didn’t really pack winter-y cold weather clothing. I brought a coat but, I didn’t bring snow-ready shoes if you know what I mean. Keds? Cute as all get out. But, not really all-weather approved. I didn’t think it would snow! And these pancakes? Not exactly warming me up right now since I made them before I left for this #eastcoastadventure. Does anywhere in VA deliver hot pancakes and cocoa??
Do you like peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies? Good. Then you need to make these pancakes. They taste just like a peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. (go figure) But really, a soft fluffy peanut butter flavored buttermilk pancake stuffed with chewy oats and chocolate chips? Heaven! Plus, since you eat them warm (obviously –> pancakes) they taste just like a cookie that is still warm and gooey from the oven. This kind of breakfast just sings to me.
- 1½ cups flour
- 1½ tablespoons sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup oats
- 1½ cups buttermilk
- ¼ cup milk
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- optional: peanut butter, syrup, powdered sugar for topping
- Preheat a large nonstick pan or griddle to medium heat. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and oats. Whisk to combine.
- In another larger bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, butter, peanut butter, and eggs. Mix until smooth. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined (it's okay if it is still a little lumpy). Gently stir in chocolate chips.
- Grease pan or griddle with cooking spray and pour about ¼-1/3 cup batter onto pan. Cook 1-2 minutes until edges begin to look "dry" and bubbled form in the batter. Flip and cook another 1-2 minutes until bottom side is lightly browned. Repeat with remaining batter. Top with additional peanut butter (I like to put mine in the microwave for a few seconds to make it pourable), powdered sugar, or syrup if desired. Enjoy!
