I have to give credit to my little brother for this recipe. I remember him making them for us every Sunday morning as kids, and we would eat them drenched in maple syrup. They were the fluffiest pancakes and we would often make a giant batch just so we would have leftovers.
I will confess though, that I was never much of a pancake person. I ate them, but there have always been other things I’ve enjoyed more. However I do occasionally get serious cravings for them. And on this particular day, I couldn’t just settle for plain pancakes with maple syrup or lemon and sugar. Oh no. I was wanting serious pancakes, with even more serious toppings. I’m talking Oreos, melted dark chocolate, warm and tangy raspberry coulis and a drizzle of rice malt syrup. Yes, you heard me right.
I also have to confess that I made sure to go for a seriously big run before I devoured these babies, in an attempt to feel a little less guilty about what I was about to enjoy. Nonetheless, I guarantee you’ll enjoy these. They’re the perfect lazy Sunday morning breakky. I give you permission to eat these in bed with your loved ones (or just your dog and a good rom com).

These pancakes also freeze really well! Glad wrap them individually and pop them in the freezer for the until ate midnight snack attack. You’re welcome.
