These were a last minute experimentation as I was making the kids pancakes this morning. My children LOVE pancakes, and request them quite frequently. I am constantly trying to figure out how to make them better, more exciting, or just plain different. I DID get concerned as I was pouring out the batter though, because I thought "Goodness! How will I ever know they're done?!"
It's not that hard really, just flip them when they turn dry around the edges.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1 c. whole grain flour (I'm sure spelt would work also, but I'd cut it down about 1/4 c. because it absorbs more liquid)
1/2 c. almond meal (or other flour of your choice)
2 t. Baking Powder
2 1/2 T. cocoa Powder
3 T. xylitol (or you could use sugar)
1/2 t. salt
1 1/4 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. Greek Yogurt
Dark chocolate chips, or chocolate chips of your choice
Mix dry ingredients together. Add liquid ingredients all at once, and whisk until thoroughly blended--no clumps remaining.
Drop by 1/4 c. scoopfuls on a hot, oiled skillet, sprinkling Flip when edges are dry.
Enjoy with toppings of choice. Strawberries, syrup, yogurt...whatever your heart desires!
