Brownie Batter Pancakes

You know how when you’re a kid you think adults must eat dessert for every meal because they can? Well judging by my breakfast this morning, that’s not too far from the truth. These pancakes are so seriously chocolatey it is kind of like eating brownies for breakfast (no complaints here). Even though you may feel like you’re eating dessert, these pancakes are low-calorie (about 150 per batch), low-fat, and vegan.

Brownie Batter Pancakes (taken from Chocolate Covered Katie and altered slightly)

Serves one (6-8 silver dollar sized pancakes)

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or dutch cocoa)
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp sugar or sucralose sweetener (you can use less if you’re planning to top with syrup/sugar and don’t want the actual pancakes to taste sweet)
  • pinch of salt (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp nondairy milk of your choice

Mix dry ingredients well, then add wet. Spray a griddle with non-stick spray and turn to low-medium heat. Make pancakes!
