About Oreo Pancakes (Cookies And Cream Pancakes)

These soft and fluffy pancakes are super easy to make and come together in under 30 minutes using simple ingredients. This recipe is a great wat to use leftover slightly softened oreo cookies.
Serve these for breakfast, brunch, or as a dessert for a delicious treat.

You can easily double or triple the recipe if making these for a crowd.
All-Purpose Flour – It makes the base of the pancakes. You can replace half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour to make these healthier.
Oreo Cookies – I like to use Original Oreo Cookies to make these pancakes but you can experiment with other variations as well.
Cocoa Powder – Use the best-quality unsweetened cocoa powder. I used Hershey’s.
Others – You will also need baking soda, granulated sugar, eggs, whole milk, and unsalted butter to make this cookies and cream pancakes recipe.
You can also add a teaspoon of vanilla extract for added flavor.

Break 12-15 oreo cookies into small pieces and add them to a food processor. Pulse to make a smooth powder.

Gather the remaining ingredients.
Make The Oreo Pancakes
Whisk together dry ingredients that are 2 cups (240 g) of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoon baking powder, 4 tablespoon granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, and 12-15 powdered oreo cookies in a large bowl.
Add the wet ingredients which are 2 large eggs, 2 cups whole milk, and 4 tablespoon melted and cooled unsalted butter to the bowl and whisk to make a smooth batter. Do not overmix.
Let the pancake mix rest for 15 minutes.

Make all the pancakes in the same manner.

Frequently Asked Questions
When making it for a crowd, I like to bake the batter in a large pan instead of making individual pancakes. Make the batter and pour it into an oven-proof baking tray. Pop the tray in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Top with honey and crushed oreo cookies and serve warm.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees F. Keep placing the pancakes on a baking sheet inside the oven. They will keep warm for a long time without cooking too much.
To make vegan cookies and cream pancake recipe, replace dairy milk with any plant-based milk, regular butter with vegan butter, coconut oil, light olive oil or canola oil, and eggs with flax seeds paste.
Serve these cookies and cream pancakes for special breakfast, brunch, or as dessert. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup and top with some crushed oreos before serving.
You can also top these with fresh whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or chocolate sauce (chocolate syrup). Sprinkle some toasted and chopped nuts for a nice crunch.
You can make the batter and refrigerate it for up to 2 days. Just pull it out of the refrigerator and make fresh pancakes.
This oreo pancake recipe is a great make-ahead breakfast recipe too. You can make the pancakes and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Reheat them in a microwave or in a pan over the stovetop before serving again.
These pancakes also freeze well. Keep them in a freezer-safe container or a ziploc bag and keep a layer of parchment paper in between each pancake to prevent them from sticking to each other. You can freeze them for up to 3 months. Just thaw, reheat and serve.
