I woke up with the intention of making healthy oatmeal pancakes and decided on a whim to make chocolate pancakes. After all, cocoa powder has some nutritive value ... right ...?
Here is the recipe I used. I suppose adding fruit would be nutritious, but I did not have any on hand.
Essentially, you mix
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups buttermilk. I used two cups of coconut milk.
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil. I used canola.
Yup. That's cake. In pancake form. It was pretty good.
