Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Giveaway


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes #recipe

Sometimes you just want cookies for breakfast.   You know that isn’t wise, but it doesn’t stop you from wanting them, does it?  OK, maybe this is just me.  I have a horrible sweet tooth, and could eat dessert all day every day.  So instead of cookies for breakfast, I made pancakes.  They aren’t health food, but they are way better for you than cookies would be for you :)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes #recipe

For these pancakes I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® in place of the butter, I normally would have used.  Did you know that I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® has 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter.   It doesn’t have any cholesterol or hydrogenated oils either, so there’s 0g trans fat per serving.  But you are not sacrificing on the buttery taste that you are looking for.  All of this combined with the whole wheat flour make oatmeal chocolate chip pancakes a good breakfast choice.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® and Country Crock® want to make food and family come together.  That is why they developed these spreads that are made with a blend of oils rich in Omega-3 ALA.  Developing healthy habits that are still delicious is important to everyone!  You can check out itsgoodtoknow.com for other great recipes using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® and Country Crock®.  Plus you have the chance to win a $50 gift card to Walmart, so you can try out these spreads on your own!

  35. Thank you for the great giveaways. I have my Walmart shopping list started and I Can’t believe it’s not butter is on the list.

  36. These are super quick and super delicious! Made them for breakfast two days in a row. Hubby was in heaven. Only changes made were to cut the recipe in half (just two of us), used greek yogurt instead of buttermilk (on-hand sub), and sub apple sauce for the butter. Didn’t find that we needed to grind the oatmeal. We ate them with peaches and I didn’t think they needed a thing (aka – syrup). Start to plate in 10 minutes. Wonderful recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!

    YES! We have oatmeal! We have chocolate chips! I cannot wait to see how good these are!

  38. These were fabulous! I love the added oats. I used kefir instead of buttermilk because that’s what I always use in place of buttermilk . My kids declare these a winner! :-)
