    Healthy-ish chocolate peanut butter pancakes

    (This is a variation of basic recipe I use a lot for all sorts of different pancakes)

    • 1 cup whole wheat flower (if you don't like the stronger taste, use never-bleached white flower)
    • 1 cup oats (quick, not instant)
    • 1 scoop whey isolate (if you don't care about the protein hit, you can leave this out)
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 2 cups buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup peanut butter, whatever kind you like
    • 4 squares very dark chocolate, chopped up
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tbsp maple syrup
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla


    Dump all the dry ingredients into a large bowl, add the wet ingredients, stir until pancake batter-like. You may need to add more milk if its too thick or if you just want it thinner.

    Let it sit for a while, then cook, eat, and enjoy.

    I'll bet that would be even better if you substituted Nutella for peanut butter.

    I've done that! Also split the batter in half and done half peanut butter, half Nutella. Yum!

    And these days, Nutella is priced almost on par with peanut butter... I went to buy some PB, and had sticker shock the other day, so I bought Nutella instead

    Rene, congrats on 6K posts. Tried your chocolate/peanut butter pancakes. Yummy, however they had a tendency to turn into lead when entering my stomach. Thanks.
