Raspberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

We're always looking for yummy breakfasts, and pancakes often our a favorite standby.

They are easy to make, quick to cook and make great leftover breakfasts!

This recipe is super easy because it is prepped the night before -- and then, it only uses one bowl!  Not to mention, there's no need for syrup with this recipe because the chocolate and raspberries are sweet enough.

I made a few adaptations to the original recipe:  I chopped the oats up in the blender, like I do with my oatmeal waffle recipe -- and also chopped apart the raspberries to help to pancakes cook and not get "soggy" where the large raspberries end up in the batter.

{Print Recipe}

1 1/4 C buttermilk, divided
1 C Old Fashioned Oats
1 egg
1/4 C brown sugar, packed
2 T butter, melted
6 T applesauce
3/4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 C raspberries, chopped/mashed
1/2 C dark chocolate chips

The night before, run the oats through your blender or food processor to make a finer blend of oats.  Then, add 1 C buttermilk, stirring to mix.  Cover and refrigerate over night.

In the morning, mix into the oat mixture the remaining 1/4 C buttermilk, egg, brown sugar, melted butter and applesauce.  Stir well.

Then, add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.  Mix well.

Then, stir in the mashed raspberries. {I mashed them once they were in the batter...but it's much easier to do before!}

And... the chocolate chips!

Scoop batter onto a hot griddle (350 degrees), and cook for ~5 minutes/side or until lightly browned.

Serve warm!  No need for syrup :)



  1. We have whole wheat/blueberry pancakes almost every Sunday morning (thanks to my dear hubby) and I like oat pancakes, too. These, however, these are going on the must try list. They sound fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

  2. YUM! I can't wait to try these out!

  3. Oh yum, I bet these were fantastic

  4. This is so creative and much better than my run of the mill blueberry pancakes. Bet they are delicious with the raspberries and chocolate. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I'm going to mash mine next time we make them. Great idea! Glad you enjoyed them. :)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
