Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancakes

Breakfast food is my favorite food. I’m talkin’ eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, pancakes…it’s all I need! I could eat it every meal of the day…and most days, I do! I literally have oatmeal 2-3 times a day (granted, I make a ½-portion every time).

 Well, because of my love of all things oatmeal, I’ve made you some oatmeal pancakes!
 For you raisin-haters…you know what to do…chocolate chips. 
Not just any oatmeal pancakes. Oh, no. These are Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancakes. Yup, cinnamon and all.
Guess what. I’d even call them healthy! Holy yum, now you have to make these!
Yup, look how fluffy they are!!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancakes
(makes 7 ¼-cup pancakes)
¼ cup oats
½ cup water
½ cup flour (I used all purpose gluten-free flour)
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
6-8 drops liquid vanilla stevia (or 1 Tbs. sugar/sweetener of your choice)
1 egg white
2 Tbs. raisins
~Prep: In a pan or microwave-safe bowl, combine the oats and water. Cook the oats in the method that works best for you (stovetop or microwave). Set aside the prepared oatmeal.
~In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Create a well in the dry ingredients and add all of the wet ingredients. Stir all of the ingredients until combined, then add the raisins and stir.
~Heat up your skillet. Use a ¼-cup ice cream scoop to evenly portion the batter into the hot skillet (use the back of the scoop to flatten out the batter a bit). Cook only 2-3 at a time, well spaced, depending on the size of your skillet. Cook the pancakes for 4 min on each side, or until they achieve a golden color.
~Enjoy! Top them with some fresh fruit or 1-2 tsp. of pure maple syrup…or some Greek yogurt!

Strike up a conversation: I never though that breakfast food would be my favorite food, because growing up, I hated all things associated with early mornings (I think I’m the only kid I knew that hated scrambled eggs). What do you love about breakfast?
