Good morning, friends and happy Pancake Sunday!
Or perhaps I should say PanCOOKIE? 😉
In my nearly TWO years of pancake flipping, I’ve made plenty of ‘cakes, but being as the holidays are approaching, I think it’s high time for some COOKIE action!
Who’s with me?
Believe me, once you “ohhh” and “ahhh” your way through a plate of these soft and chewy, raisin-riddled panCOOKIES, you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without them!
Well, unless you don’t like raisins…and in that case,
I may need to reevaluate our friendship! 😉

Nutrition facts for panCOOKIES only:
Once you add the “icing”, your protein count can increase up to 15g, but if you’d rather have a bit more, fill free to use protein “frosting” instead…simply take your favorite vanilla-flavored protein powder and add enough water/milk to thin to a drizzly consistency!
Make that a plant-based protein powder and you’ve got yourself a plate of…
You know, if you’re into that sort of thing! 😉
What is your favorite cookie?
Almond shortbread till the day I die!
Do you prefer “frosting” or “icing” when it comes to sweet treats?
Although many people will tell you it’s a regional thing, there IS a difference between the two…trust me, I Googled it! 😉
When can I come over for breakfast? 😉
You busy in like 20 minutes? 😉
I just had to look at your link – I had absolutely no idea there was a difference between the two! I definitely prefer frosting! Buttercream is the way to go. 🙂
I didn’t either, but then I was having a hard time deciding how to refer to my topping so I looked it up…I always thought it was just a regional thing, like soda vs pop!
WOW these look amazing!!! My only question… where do you buy butter extract?? I’ve been looking for it everywhere and haven’t managed to get my hands on some!
Thank you Brittany! That’s funny, I see it at the grocery stores around here all the time…I usually shop at Kroger and sometimes (when I absolutely have to), Walmart.
These look amazing! Now I know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow morning!
Woo hoo! Let me know what you think…pretty sure these are my favorite out of the last few weeks!
I’m always up for some cookie action, and these look soooooo incredibly soft and doughy. To make things even better, oatmeal raisin cookies are probably my all time favorite… I used to think I was more of a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie kind of girl, but no… raisins all the way. Eep! I think that makes me old 😯
Hahaha! No, prunes make you old! And we won’t be making or eating any prune cookies or pancakes around here ANY time soon! 😉
And oh my gosh, they ARE incredibly soft and doughy…I swear it was a [pancake] dream come true! Lol
Yum…breakfast tomorrow is decided! Favorite cookie is snickerdoodles, but I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like. 😉
That’s my girl!! I can do without candy and cakes, but put me in a room full of cookies and it is OVER! Lol
I’d love to hear what you think! I was so excited with how these turned out…so soft and doughy…JUST like cookies!
Oh my gosh, Heather, HOW do you do this?! How do you keep coming up with so many amazing recipes?!
Also, I’m assuming there is a Kiss My Broccoli Pancake Cookbook coming out. And I demand to pre-order a copy.
Mmk? MWAH! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Ya know…I was just asking myself the same question the other day! Lol Just when I think I’m all out of ideas, I go and sniff a bar of soap or find myself walking down the cookie aisle at the grocery store and BAM…inspiration!
And fyi, should I ever score a cookbook deal, I will PERSONALLY bring you a signed copy…as long as you invite me over for breakfast the next day! 😉
I don’t think you make a pancake that I wouldn’t eat! I’m not too much of an icing person. I like a light frosting. Picky aren’t I??? My favorite cookie is oatmeal chocolate chip. YUM!
You seriously need to open up a pancake restaurant!!! You’re amazing.
Haha! Aww, thanks doll! xoxox
I’m with Brittany, no one sunday goes by that i don’t swoon. Pancookie please!
Do I hear a trade in the making? Pancookies for Healthy Bites? 😉
lately i’ve been a real snickerdoodle gal, can’t get enough. as for frosting vs icing, weirdly i’m an icing gal… I find frosting to be too overwhelming and I often can’t taste the treat below it
I am RIGHT there with ya on that one! Frosting always seems to be a bit much for me…I prefer the “hint” of a glaze or icing instead. Mmmm, snickerdoodles!
I seriously didn’t know there was a difference between the two – I’ve been using them interchangeably all my life! But I’m definitely a frosting girl all the way. Especially when it’s my mom’s homemade buttercream. Oh my gosh that stuff is flippin’ incredible!
And I think my favourite cookie would have to be THESE since I can eat them for breakfast. 😉 But I also love a classic chewy chocolate chip cookie.
Ya know, I don’t think I’ve ever had buttercream before. Hmmm…
Oh yes, nothing like a classic…and it DEFINITELY has to be chewy!
How do you keep coming up with this stuff??? I want the vanilla frosting. Now.
Yay for pancakes!!!! Why have I not added Capella drops to my PrOATtein pancakes?! I have the marshmallow drops… I’m thinking s’more cakes in the morning…
Whenever you become famous and open up a pancake joint, please invite me to the grand opening!
Your name’s already at the top of the list! 😉
These look amazing! I want to make these just for yummy work snackage! The yoghurt icing/frosting looks soo good!
xo Emilie @ Hungry Delights
Thank you Emilie! And that’s actually a great idea…they would make the perfect midday “treat” even without the “icing”! 🙂
Sign me up for pancookies please. I prefer frosting, but only because my sweet tooth is the size of an elephant and you just get more with frosting.
I’ve got you down for 8 dozen! Is that too much? 😉
Have you ever heard of Gigi’s cupcakes (http://www.gigiscupcakesusa.com/caramelsugarmama)? If your sweet tooth is as big as you say, those cupcakes will make you feel like you’ve died and gone to Heaven! For me…I just feel like I died! Lol
If I can freeze them, eight dozen will be fine. Who am I kidding; they won’t make it to the freezer.
I’ve nver heard if Gigi’s but I’ll check them out now. Thanks!
Haha! Nice! Of course frozen cookie crumbles ARE pretty tasty! 😉
