Chocolate Pancakes


Chocolate Banana Pancakes

Believe it or not, this was my first go at working with oat flour- gluten-free of course. And wowza has it opened up a whole new baking world. It bakes up so easy breezy and fluffy- making these pancakes maybe my very best pancake recipe yet (not to say the one that will be appearing on my highly anticipated book UnDiet isn’t also sensationally sensational).

So, I know it’s not the nicest of me to post a Sunday morning pancake recipe on a Monday, but who says you can’t have pancakes for dinner? Not me, I tell you, not me- except if they’re made out of this:


Alright- now tie on your bibs and drool over this magic!

    Who doesn’t love pancakes in the morning? And chocolate?! Oh my God, make me drool. I love how you used oat flour in this mixture which I’ve never done. I’ve made mine from quinoa & millet in the past and they were super tasty! (
    Definitely a wonderful treat and one that I’ve used on my selfie days where I disconnect from the world…and use moments to reconnect with chocolate. Oh yummmmm…

    I’ll have to try these on Sunday! You’re a couple weeks too late. I woke up last weekend & the very first thought in my head was, “Cocoa pancakes!”, and my second thought was, “Why didn’t I think of this before?!” so I LEPT out of bed & invented a recipe. They were good, but this is surely better :)
