Cookies and Cream Baked Skillet Pancake

Cookies and Cream Baked Skillet Pancake (Vegan)

A light and cake-y baked pancake studded with cookies and cream biscuits. The batter is naturally vegan, gluten-free and protein-packed and makes for a delicious breakfast or dessert.

This Cookies and Cream Baked Skillet Pancake follows swiftly on from my Cookies and Cream Nut Butter – which is a fancy name for the fact I added some cookies and cream (aka Oreos) biscuits to my homemade cashew butter. And it is slightly addictive. I have wanted to create so many different recipes with the butter and this baked skillet is the first of many (I  hope!).

The base of the Cookies and Cream Baked Skillet Pancake is a light and cakey batter, similar to that of my previous skillets but I have upped the oats to make it feel more breakfast-like without compromising on the texture or taste. The batter is naturally gluten-free but do make sure you find GF cookies for this bake.

Here’s what we need:

  • Plant-based milk and lemon juice/apple cider vinegar: this mixture “curdles” to form a vegan buttermilk that helps to bind the batter.
  • Oats: blend these into oat flour as a naturally gluten-free and fibre-packed alternative to flour.
  • GF or plain flour: you can also use spelt, wholemeal or buckwheat flour here, whichever you have to hand. I have had success with both gluten-free and glutenous batters.
  • Vanilla protein powder: this vanilla flavour is important for the overall “cookies and cream” flavour and I love the texture that the protein powder adds. Make sure you use your favourite blend as they can vary a lot. If you want to play around with the skillet pancake flavour, you use different flavoured protein, too.
  • Baking powder and bicarbonate of soda: essential ingredients for the rise. This skillet is like eating cake for breakfast!
  • Salt and vanilla: these are important for the flavour. Adding salt to your sweet bakes really amplifies the flavour.
  • Cookies and cream biscuits: I use Oreos but you can use a similar variety. Crumble them up pop them into the batter before it goes into the oven so you can have cake and cookies all in one mouthful.

My skillet for this Cookies and Cream Baked Skillet Pancake is 14cm round skillet, but you can sue similar-sized oven-proof dishes or a couple of smaller ones.  Make sure to bake until golden and fluffy and then allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.  It will continue to bake as it cools for these 5 minutes so do try to be patient.

Top this Cookies and Cream Baked Skillet Pancake with my Cookies and Cream Nut Butter, some chocolate sauce or melted chocolate and this is one dreamy, delicious and decadent breakfast or dessert. It comes together with minimal effort (it takes 10 minutes) and smells heavenly as it bakes. It is light and fluffy like a moist vanilla cake studded with chocolate biscuits.

    Hey Amy. Looks divine and I love Oreos.never thought of having Oreos for breakfast, looks insane. Especially Oreos are like my favourite flavour for sure, what am I able to use instead of a skillet pan as I don’t have? What’s your recommendation and splendid photography as always! Looks heavenly with the Oreos melted and looks easy for a beginner cook like myself. Hope I can recreate myself the above and Of course I will tag you on your socials as I always do when I make your divine makes/bakes. You are such a inspiration and I wouldn’t think of making your chocolates chip cookies 🍪 by myself. Yay 😁 I baked so independently and wish I could cook like you. Hope to see you at your live cooking demos in London later on in the year. My parents say hi to you all and Ben says woofs as well! Saved to my WordPress saved collection 😋😍🌱🥰😁🍫xxxxx
