Oreo Pancakes

oreo pancakes

This weekend, I sensed an early mid-life crisis about to occur which was only cured by these Oreo pancakes.  It started because I had a moment that I simply needed to accept.  It was officially June, and in less than a week, I will be 33.  In my house, we call that the “Jesus” year since it was the last year of his life.

The Jesus year is basically the year where you must reflect and really take a deep look at your life and see where you are heading.  You ask yourself heavy questions like, “Am I on the right path?” and “Am I fulfilling my destiny?”   Because I started quizzing myself a little early yesterday with these questions, I suffered from a tiny bit of anxiety.   I’m not sure I am totally ready to have that conversation with myself just yet.

But I was instead ready to have pancakes because I decided that 32 was a pretty decent year.  Sure, I had some lows (some really terrible lows) but in true Gemini fashion, I am really happy and excited about all I was blessed and able to do in 32 years of life.  I feel like I have joy and have realized some simple truths about the things that bring me that joy.  I am not tied to money (though I would love to have more, just saying this for the universe) or things.  I am happy that I get to do what I love everyday.  I have an amazing husband and family that loves me, and I have true friends that will go to the ends of the earth with me.  I have taken risks this year when others have told me to play it safe, and I am living life on my own terms with no regrets.  It simply doesn’t get better than that.

I also realized that slowly but surely, I am making a difference in the lives of others.  This meant the most to me.   I am not leading a selfish life, and I believe in helping others.  Reflecting on the great things I’ve accomplished made me realize just how incredibly blessed I truly am.  I wouldn’t trade a thing for that experience.  So with that, I planned to celebrate 32 with extreme decadence which sparked this recipe.

These Oreo pancakes are so incredible, and just the mark I want to leave as I walk into another year.  They are fluffy with cookies and cream bits sprinkled throughout and a hint of cocoa powder which isn’t too overwhelming in chocolate flavor.  This makes this pancake the perfect vehicle for sandwiching with Oreo whipped cream and chocolate sauce!  Yes!!!  Biting into these made me happy.  And because I am a giver, I am giving you the recipe so you can be happy too!  It is better to give than to receive right??

Oreo Pancakes

Oreo Pancakes


    For the Pancakes:
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup plus 4 tablespoons buttermilk or coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Oreo cookies and cream, chopped
  • For the Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chopped Oreo cookies and cream
  • Chocolate Sauce and additional chopped Oreos for garnish


    For the Pancakes:
  1. In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, sugar and cocoa powder and whisk together until well mixed.
  2. Next add in eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla extract and chopped Oreos and whisk until batter just comes together and leave the lumps there. No need for a smooth batter.
  3. Heat a griddle or non stick skillet over medium heat and melt extra butter.
  4. Pour about 1/4 of a cup of batter onto the griddle surface in a circular pattern. Allow each pancake to sit until bubbles form and the bottom is browned and crisp.
  5. Flip over the pancake and cook until browned and crisp on the other side.
  6. Remove the pancake and place in a warm oven (about 225 degrees) and repeat the process until all pancakes are done.
  7. For the Whipped Cream:
  8. Add heavy cream to your mixer bowl and mix on high speed.
  9. When peaks begin to appear, add in sugar and cornstarch and continue mixing.
  10. Once stiff peaks begin to form, add in Oreos and turn off.
  11. To Assemble Pancakes:
  12. Add one pancake to serving plate then top with whipped cream, then add another pancake and top with whipped cream. Do this for as many pancakes as you would like then add chocolate sauce over the stack of pancakes and finish with whipped cream on the top pancake with chopped cookies and cream for garnish.

      Thank you so much Chloe!! They are now my favorite thing ever.

    • Ryan Greer says:

      By oreo cookies and cream u mean the ice cream right?

      • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

        Hi Ryan, no ice cream in this recipe I’m afraid. Just your cookies and cream product at your local grocery store. The main brand that sells these is Oreo.

  2. Jocelyn,
    love these pancakes!!!! Oreo decadence at it’s finest! and I LOVE “the Jesus year” and the meaning behind that. . I wish I did that when I turned 33! :) I think it’s a great idea to do that every year. . reflect and really take a deep look at your life and see where you are heading. . . anyway, you are on the right track! no worries about that girl! and I feel so happy to have met you . . this is going to be an exciting year for you, so enjoy it, embrace it and above all, make and eat lots more Oreo pancakes!!! Happy (early) 33 my friend! I hope it’s amazing! love you!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Wow do you know how much this response warmed my heart! Alice, I feel like I have known you forever. You are such an amazing person. I am so grateful that you became my friend!!!

  3. Happy early 33rd birthday Jocelyn! That is such a special reminder, the 33. You are an amazing lady and I so admire your ability to take the lows and come through stronger. Keep living without others bringing you down – you are impacting so many people because of that!
    These Oreo pancakes are an incredible way to celebrate. This is my kind of breakfast for sure! The whipped cream puts it over the edge!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Thank you so much Mary!!! The lows definitely make us stronger right? I’m keeping a positive attitude so I’m excited about what is to come, and by that I mean another stack of Oreo pancakes!!

  4. The “Jesus” year is such a great idea. We all need to stop and reassess what is it we are doing, where are we heading etc. I am so proud of you and know that you are not even close to your potential of making the world a better place for everyone. Happy 33rd in advance!!! These pancakes are just pure bliss and decadence.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Hooray! I agree, we definitely need to stop and look at what we are doing. I just love you girl!!! Thank you so much my friend!

  5. I certainly didn’t think of 33 as the Jesus year when I turned 33 (a long time ago), and I think it’s a great idea! Birthdays are always a great time to evaluate our lives and decide how we want the future to go. It’s wonderful that you’re helping others, and I know your blog brings me joy! And these pancakes? They take the cake! :)

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Awww thanks so much Marcie. I imagine that you didn’t turn 33 that long ago. You look like you are still in your 20s my dear!!

  6. The Jesus year? I love that!
    No better cure than these pancakes, though. They’ll get all the reflection out of your head really quick to make room for tastebuds. These look amazing!
    And enjoy 33. I had a similar crisis then, and there are so many new and exciting things to try! Like ziplining. :)

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Ziplining Mir??? Wow, I think I need to try that! Why not take a crazy crazy risk!???

  7. Ok. I have never heard of the “Jesus” year… and I missed it last year :) I guess it would be a good time to consider all of those questions. These pancakes look amazing. I can see how they would help with any deep thinking.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Oh yeah these were definitely the best food ever to help with deep thinking!!

  8. Wow – what seriously pancakes! I make pancakes for my son all the time and he is a serious Oreo fanatic so I can picture his reaction! It’s always better to reflect on life on a full and happy stomach. : )

  9. Oh wow, these look amazing!

  10. Oh my goodness these pancakes have my name written all over them! Love em!

  20. These pretty much need to happen right now, if not sooner.

  21. Aw, happy birthday, Jocelyn!! It sure sounds to me like you’re doing just great. I’m a little ahead of you in the age stakes, but I think that was roughly the time when I started to feel really comfortable in my own skin. Things have really just got better and better since then! So here’s to your 33rd year! And you’re right, these decadent pancakes are the perfect way to celebrate! :-)

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

  37. What a beautiful post, Jocelyn. I’ve never heard of 33 being called the “Jesus year” before and I think you’ve reflected upon what this means so eloquently and honestly. Welcome to year 33, girl! I’m going to be leaving my 33rd year in July and entering the 34th (sigh…this aging thing is freaking me out!). You have so much wisdom. I truly believe you are living the life that you were meant to live and that’s a wonderful thing. Hells yeah to celebrating with decadence – these Oreo pancakes are AH-MAY-ZING.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says:

      Wow!!! You definitely know all about what 33 means girl. Gosh I bet you have tons of stories to tell. You are truly a wise and wonderful woman Nancy!
