Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe
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.
