Is there anything better than a healthy dose of chocolate pancakes for breakfast? I think not. And why not call them what they are: delectable little breadcakes. Bonus factor? Well the chocolate, of course. It's like I always say, start the day with a healthy dessert!

Yield: 6 to 8 silver-dollar pancakes

Double Chocolate Brownie Batter Pancakes


  • ¼ cup spelt flour (or all-purpose or Bob's gluten-free)
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Hershey's Special Dark cocoa or Dutch cocoa
  • 1½ packets Nunaturals stevia or 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp sugar (you can use less if you're planning to top with syrup and don't want the actual pancakes to taste sweet.)
  • 116 tsp salt
  • 1½ tbsp applesauce or oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 5½ tbsp milk of choice

  1. Mix the dry ingredients very well and then add the wet ingredients.(Works best when you make smaller size pancakes.)
  2. Heat the frying pan to a medium low flame.
  3. Use non-stick spray so the pancakes won't stick.
  4. Drop ¼ cup scoops of batter into pan.
  5. Cook for about two minutes or until the pancake is golden. 
  6. Flip pancake.
  7. Cook the other side until golden and remove.
