cookie dough oatmeal pancakes

A great way to start our morning always begins with a well made cappuccino. Inspired by Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil, we made this morning even better by adding a stack of pancakes stuffed with cookie dough. Now, how is it that a few balls of cookie dough added to pancakes can take a breakfast to elevated perfection? Chocolate.

The answer: Cookie dough stuffed with chocolate chips, stuffed inside a stack of pancake-goodness is the best way to treat someone on Valentine’s morning.

If your lover, girlfriend, boyfriend, hubbie, kids or best friend doesn’t like chocolate (shame on them), then you can make a batch of peanut butter cookie dough, snickernoodle cookie dough or what ever it takes to say “I Love You”.

Out of cookie dough ideas? Then you must explore Lindsay’s adorable book, The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook. It’s a collection of a wonderful recipes made with her own egg-free cookie dough creation. From a collage of baked treats, she’s been able to masterfully make and inspire dishes for everyone who has ever loved cookie dough. Or at least in her own words, “… for anyone who’s ever been caught with a finger in the mixing bowl.”

We used our own chocolate chunk dough recipe for these luscious stack of pancakes, but thoroughly enjoyed her oatmeal pancake recipe. And a heaping dollop of our favorite orange marmalade added the perfect, fruity balance to the stack. These hearty pancakes are filled with the texture and scent of oatmeal in every bite. To It’s one of those recipes that make you feel less guilty about the cookie dough because there’s the whole oats in there. When in guilt phase, just add more oats and all will be better.

Enjoy!

Cookie Dough Oatmeal Pancakes

Yield: Serves 4

Total Time: 1 hour

Adapted from Lindsay Landis' book, The Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook. We used our chocolate chunk cookie dough which we nearly always have a batch of dough in the freezer, but feel free to use which ever cookie dough you love. And if you are uncomfortable eating cookie dough because of the raw eggs, you have to check out Lindsay's book which is filled with egg-free cookie doughs or check out the book's companion website CookieDoughLovers.com.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (150g) Old-Fashioned Oats, divided
  • 3/4 cup (95g) Flour, use less flour if refrigerating overnight
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons (20g) Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5g) Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5g) Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (2g) Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
  • 1 cup (240ml) Buttermilk *see Note 1
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons (30g) unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3ml) Vanilla Extract
  • @ 1 cup (@300g) Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough *see headnote

Directions:

  1. Put 1/2 cup of oats in a food processor or blender and pulse until oats are coarsely ground but not pulverized, about 8-10 seconds.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in ground oats and remaining 1/2 cup of oats into flour until evenly mixed.
  3. Stir in buttermilk, egg, butter and vanilla extract until just incorporated. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight to allow it to thicken.
  4. When ready to make pancakes, form cookie dough into many marble-sized balls.
  5. Heat a large non stick skillet over medium-high heat. Melt a little butter in the pan and spread across pan surface.
  6. After butter just finishes sizzling, ladle 1/4 cups worth of batter to make pancakes. Place about 5 pieces of cookie dough in each pancake.
  7. Cook until bottoms are browned and top is bubbly, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip over and cook until browned, about 2 more minutes. If pancake outsides are cooking faster than the inside can finish, lower heat so they cook at the same rate.
  8. Serve warm with preferred syrup, jam, or whipped cream.

Note 1: To make a quick buttermilk substitute, add 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice to just under a cup of milk. Stir and wait for about 5 minutes or until it curdles.

Honey Mustard Spare Ribs & Chicken Wing Round-Up

Thumbnail image for Honey Mustard Spare Ribs & Chicken Wing Round-Up

Hi guys, Todd here. It’s taken me a week and a half, but I’m finally ready for the Super Bowl. Like the majority of the fans across the league we’ve seen our teams bounced out of contention, week by week. A season’s worth of hopes, rooting, agony, and aspiration whittled down to two teams, neither or which most of us call our own.

It’s not that I don’t like the Ravens or 49ers. In fact I love their coaches, respect both teams, and if the »

Baked Eggs in Avocado with Bacon on Toast

Thumbnail image for Baked Eggs in Avocado with Bacon on Toast

Wait, don’t click away yet. Hold on to that thought. Allow me to explain this dish to you before judge a warm avocado meal.

I know, it may sound awkward to be spreading hot avocado on toast, dripping with egg yolk and scattered with bacon bits. It may even sound blasphemous to some of you who are avocado purists. Why ruin a sacred Hass avocado, that’s perfectly ripe, buttery and creamy with oven-heat and egg? I know, I know, but read on….

Crispy Chicken Vegetable Spring Rolls (Egg Rolls) – A Neighborhood Favorite

This is a new recipe we’re featuring over at Chicken Recipe Box. Please head on over there for this Crispy Chicken Spring Roll recipe.

When we moved to our current neighborhood almost 10 years ago, there many little kids in the hood, scurrying past on their bicycles and skateboards. Although we didn’t have kids of our own, we quickly made friends with them because we were the “cool” neighbors. This was quite an honor, especially coming from a bunch of 7-11 years old whose only »

Sharing the Kishu Mandarins

Thumbnail image for Sharing the Kishu Mandarins

These orange jewels you see in the photo above are kishu mandarins. David Karp calls them the mighty mandarin “the most delicious of mandarins”. They’re small, seedless, easy to peel and sweet. We call them citrus candy and you can’t just eat one. Because they’re so addicting, delicious and often hard to find, we decided to grow a tree a few years back. Since we’re a little nutty and crazy in the citrus growing realm, we decided to grow a second tree last year because »

It’s this time of year that we start enjoying margaritas, particularly blood orange margaritas and meyer lemon margaritas. Aside from the fact that the holidays are over and our New Years celebrations have officially ended, we’re just beginning to relish in these wonderful cocktails. Why? Whats the occasion? Well, it’s peak citrus season in our neck of the garden-woods, of course.

Though it’s freezing outside and we often wake up to frost on our roofs, all our citrus are still hanging on firm to their »

Warm Baked-Sweet Potato Soup for the Soul

The past few days have been so chilly with early morning frost, it’s hard to believe that we still have a few tomatoes growing in the garden. Granted, the tomatoes are green, but it still feels awkward to be pickling a batch of green tomatoes in the middle of a West Coast January.  Gathering tomatoes in January from the garden is like a scene from the twilight zone.

Cold wind, dry weather and evenings full of bundled blankets and a warm fire calls out for »

What do you NOT like to eat?

An interesting conversation came up on our Facebook page the other day about foods kids like to eat. We asked parents what their minions like to eat because we’re planning some kiddie menus for an upcoming project.

We’re kid-less, well at least with the two legged kind. We do have two of those four-legged kids but they eat just about anything, even the bark off our trees. So you see, we can use some help.

You should come see our kitchen. Actually, maybe you shouldn’t because we’d probably kidnap you to hover over the sink and wash a ton of dishes.

As of the last two months we’ve been working on client shoots and recipe testing for personal projects that all involve enough food to feed a football team. Almost everyday we’ve sent out emergency messages to brothers, friends and dojo folks to come eat. Our messages are often blunt, like , ” Don’t eat lunch or dinner anywhere today. »

Even if just for  moment, wouldn’t it be so lovely to think about gathering all the people you care about and who have made an impact in your life to gather in one room? Funny how some things seem so far attainable, but yet it happens every day. This blog, for instance, and many of your blogs and websites are gathering places for exactly that.

This is why we made our Life Recipe Video for New Year last year. You’re all part of the most »

I’m clinging on to the last few days of 2012 so that I can indulge in my buffet of cheese dips and margaritas before 2013 hits. Starting next week, I’ll focus on being a good girl and sticking to my new years health “goals”. It’ll probably be a few weeks before I break those goals or at least swerve off to the dark side again.

But with only a few days left, let’s discuss the topic of cheese dips and how wonderful they make us »

Creamy, Slow Cooked Scalloped Potatoes – first time and not last.

by White on Rice Couple December 19, 2012
Thumbnail image for Creamy, Slow Cooked Scalloped Potatoes – first time and not last.

This is my first time, this curious obsession, of cooking with a slow cooker. For as long as I could remember, I’ve been stalking slow cooker recipes, often wondering how/why/what could possibly be the advantage having a slow cooker. Quite frankly, I’m more fearful of actually pressing a button on an appliance, leaving it on all day and coming home to a burned down house.

My gut feeling has always been to leave the house with everything turned off and I’ve been known to circle »

It’s cold, unforgiving, and can bite to the bone sending shivers throughout the body. Sometimes you just want to wrap yourself up and hide from it. Somehow seeking warmth and comfort from its ugliness. Oh yeah, and the weather can be bad too.

Too much lately have we been reminded of the ugliness of life. We all approach life differently, savoring the sweetness and swallowing the bitterness in our own ways. For Diane and I, we struggle with the seeming pointlessness of writing about food »

These butter cookies are Santa-approved because anyone who works hard all night long schlepping gifts around the world could use a hit of brandy, cognac or rum. Included the cookie list should be all Santa’s helpers. How many of you have ever stayed up all night long wrapping gifts and toiled in presents-planning before Christmas morning? We been-there-done-that and by 2 am a platter of cookies laced with rum is a welcomed treat.

Chocolate Bourbon Balls- Three Ways

Diane was initially going to write this post, but after 1 bourbon ball she quietly passed out on the couch. Silly Asian, they aren’t that alcoholic. Although I think she may be faking to get out of writing a post.

I’ve always loved a good rum ball. Actually, the love extends to just about any dessert with a hit of alcohol. I’ll macerate just about any dried fruit going into a dessert just to give it a little punch. Serving trifle, tiramisu… “Seconds Please.”»
