Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe

Updated on September 28, 2012
5 stars from 3 ratings of Chocolate Pancakes

This is one of my family's favorite breakfast recipes. Actually, my kids sometimes eat these pancakes as snacks during the day also. These pancakes are very nutritious, they are rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. You can eat chocolate pancakes with any syrups and toppings, you can try them with honey, maple syrup, yogurt, berries and fruits.

      I am not a fancier of pancakes, however these really look good and I lve the ingredients. I may be tempted to try these. I think we all have to get out our food comfort zone once in a while.

      This is the most amazing pancake recipe I'v ever seen. I AM ALWAYS searching for recipes where I can substitute white flour, sugar and oil with healthy choices. I could never imagined such great idea for pancakes.Thanks a lot

      and I reckon we can replace cocoa powder with instant coffee powder as well!?hm?

      I missed this the first time it came out...the words "healthy" and "chocolate" drew my attention then and it brought me back now. Great recipe and we will, definitely, try it.

      I've added this to my recipes to sample list. My husband loves pancakes but I rarely make them because the traditional style are so fattening and unhealthy. I've also added ground oatmeal but that doesn't add enough health benefits in itself. I look forward to trying yours with the whole wheat flour, flaxseed and kefir. Voted up!

      Thank you Vespawoolf! My family loves them so much that I end up making them a few times a week, hopefully you will like it too!
