What’s in a name? When you sell oat- and raisin-laced pancakes as “oatmeal cookie” pancakes and drizzle them with a cookie look-alike glaze, kids won’t notice the healthy add-ins or miss the maple syrup they usually pour over pancakes.

Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup light-brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 Tbs. butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Maple Topping

  • 2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
  • 6 Tbs. maple syrup

Preparation

1 To make Pancakes: Stir together flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl.

2 Whisk together eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla in separate bowl.

3 Fold flour mixture into egg mixture. Stir in raisins, pecans, and chocolate chips.

4 Coat skillet or griddle with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Ladle ½ cup batter for each pancake, and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until bubbles form on surface all the way to middle of pancake.
