(HEALTHY) Chocolate Chip Cookie Pancakes


Sometimes I make pancakes.
Not often.
I'm concerned they're not super healthy for breakfast.
I've never shared any recipes with you because....
my pancakes always turn out ugly.
Apparently I am unable to cook pancakes and have them look pretty.
Or at least-I was!

These pancakes are the prettiest I've ever made, and for some reason, the easiest for me to cook (perhaps the lack of egg?)
They're also healthy.
These pancakes are fat free, vegan (if you use vegan or no chocolate chips), low in sugar, and absolutely tasty!! They're another new fav. breakfast of mine (and I like to make them in my little cast iron skillet that my sweetie got me for Christmas). I actually had some yesterday. So go forth and eat guilt-free pancakes (that taste like cookies)!

(HEALTHY) Chocolate Chip Cookie Pancakes


Serves 1-2. Depending on how hungry you are.
Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • brown sugar, to taste (I usually crumble in about a teaspoon's worth)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Approx. 1/2 cup water 
  • Chocolate chips, to taste
Preparation:
  • Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Mix in the vanilla extract.
  • Add water slowly, until desired consistency.
  • Cook in a (greased) skillet over medium-low heat. Add chocolate chips as one side cooks. When bubbles break towards the middle, flip. Cook until the other side is golden brown.
  • Serve warm with syrup, butter, or (if you're me) peanut butter!
Here...have a bite. It's OK-they're healthy!
Mmm....I love peanut butter.

  11. I love whole grain pancakes and that touch of chocolate sounds like a great addition. Also, I would not reserve them just for breakfast, they would fare well as a dessert with ice cream. Well done-yum! Enjoy the weekend!

  12. Hi, Kayle. I made these pancakes this morning. They are delicious. Also, they were super simple to whip up. I was half asleep when I made them this morning. I'm eating them as I type and they are so tasty. Thanks for the lovely recipe.

  17. Thanks to Javelin Warrior, I found this page and just tried these pancakes. They tasted very good even with me messing up and adding more wheat flour than it called for! LOL.. my mistake - can't read directions.

  18. I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand, so I added a little cocoa powder and cinnamon. What can I say, Momma never taught me to not play with my food; I'm glad she didn't! Warm vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon chocolate and oatmeal. What a combination!
