Triple Chocolate Pancakes

Pancakes are good for more than just breakfast. Like dinner. And dessert. And they are extremely easy to make as a variation on my basic pancake recipe.

This is also a great way to sneak in extra fiber into your diet. Just replace 1/2 of the regular flour with whole wheat. With all that chocolaty yumminess, you'll never notice :)


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or 1/2 cup all purpose + 1/2 cup whole wheat flour)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder 
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • Chocolate and white chocolate chips
  1. Heat a griddle or skillet. For an electric griddle, follow the instructions. I set mine to 325, or a skillet to medium heat. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (not including the chocolate chips) with a whisk and set aside.
  3. In a second bowl, whisk all of the wet ingredients together, making sure to disperse the egg. The liquid should be pale yellow
  4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and stir with  a spatula until the batter just comes together. There will be lumps, but they shouldn't be huge. 
  5. Pour batter onto your hot griddle/pan.
  6. Before the top sets, sprinkle chocolate chips onto the cooking pancakes. 
  7. Cook until the top side looks almost dry. Then flip with a spatula and cook until the other side is a light golden brown.
About 8 4-6" pancakes. Serve with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, warmed raspberry jelly, or just a fork.
