You asked and I delivered! This Healthy Deep Dish Breakfast Cookie has been one of the most popular recipes on my blog since I first published it almost three years ago, but there was definitely room for improvement. Although it tastes amazing (really – it does!) I got a few comments from people who had made it asking for an even healthier version – and here it is! I kept pretty much the same ingredients, but added a couple of nutritional extras and substituted a few others. The result is an indulgent-feeling breakfast dish that really does taste like a chocolate chip cookie-cake combo, but is actually really good for you!
I’ve been wanting to share this healthy breakfast recipe with you for so long now that I’m super excited to be finally publishing it! I eat this dish literally at least once a week, or even more so in winter when the only thing that makes me complete my early morning run is knowing that I get to enjoy a great big bowl of steaming hot double chocolate oatmeal when I get in. If that isn’t enough motivation to make me run as fast as I can, nothing is going to get me moving!
Before we get going with this recipe for chocolate chip oatmeal pancakes, I feel that I need to make an admission – I cannot make pretty pancakes. I just can’t. Seriously, just take a look at these Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes, these Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Pancakes or these Whole Wheat Nutella Pancakes. They sound amazing and they taste delicious, but if you look at my pictures, they look dreadful!
Waking up and eating a great big jar of brownie batter is pretty much how I would describe my dream morning. But thanks to this healthy double chocolate brownie batter overnight oats recipe, my dream becomes a reality at least one morning each week! Yes, I know – the title is a bit on the long side, right? But every word was so essential that I just couldn’t leave any out.
Normally when I publish overnight oats recipes, they’re healthy – just like these healthy cookie dough overnight oats or double chocolate raspberry overnight oats. But this time, I’ve pretty much thrown my healthy mindset out of the window and decided to serve you caramel for breakfast. Yep, this is straight up homemade caramel sauce, made from cream, butter and sugar. And I’m giving it to you for breakfast. Pretty awesome, right?
