Yes, I’ve done it. I’ve added Oreos to pancakes and the combination is pretty epic. 

This past week my mom was here and we were testing out pancake recipes. I have a delicious homemade dry pancake mix that has been a go-to for me ever since I ran a bed and breakfast many years ago. It’s such a great mix that can easily be manipulated to create a variety of unique pancake recipes. In the past I’ve made these funfetti pancakes, these adorable mini pancakes, and even used leftover pancakes to make this amazing blueberry almond pancake pudding

Anyway, my mom and I experimented with a couple of recipes, and they just didn’t work out. Now, I didn’t want to give up, so I looked around my kitchen to see what else I might try and my eye noticed an almost empty Oreo package on the counter. After that, I remembered I had some whipped cream in my refrigerator. In an instant, I knew what needed to be done … Oreo Pancakes! 

These pancakes were way better than I could have ever imagined. I’m not sure I want pancakes served any other way. I think you’re going to love them too.

Serving Suggestions

Once your Oreo pancakes are cooked to your liking, it’s time to present them to your guests. Arrange them on a plate, stacking them high to showcase the layers of chocolate cookie and creamy filling that are mixed into the batter. 

Before serving, consider adding a drizzle of syrup and a dollop of whipped cream to the top for an extra touch of sweetness. I also like to sprinkle mine with more chopped-up Oreos. 

While the Oreo pancakes are delicious on their own, they can be elevated to new heights with the addition of some optional toppings. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • hot fudge / chocolate sauce – If you’re a chocolate lover, a drizzle of hot fudge or chocolate sauce would be perfect here.
  • chocolate chips – If you can’t get enough chocolate, why not add some mini chocolate chips to your pancake batter before cooking? They’ll melt and create pockets of gooey goodness in every bite.
  • caramel sauce – Drizzle some warm caramel sauce over your Oreo pancakes for a sweet and buttery contrast to the crunchy cookies.
  • peanut butter – If you’re a fan of the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate, spread a generous spoonful of creamy peanut butter on top of your pancakes for a decadent treat. 
  • fresh berries – Try topping your Oreo pancakes with a handful of fresh berries like strawberries or blueberries. The tartness of the fruit will help balance out the sweetness of the Oreos.

  1. Oreos for breakfast – my kids thought they were in heaven! I served them with fresh sweetened whipped cream and they were amazing! And of course the homemade pancake mix is so much better than store bought. 🙂
