While weekdays don’t usually lend themselves to cooking a fresh batch of pancakes, this recipe comes together so quickly it really doesn’t take much longer than the time you’d spend scrambling a few eggs and toasting a slice of bread. To balance out the sweet chocolate goodness, whole wheat flour adds a hearty, and healthy, addition to the start of the day.

Chocolate Pancakes
Makes 8-10 pancakes


1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup whole wheat flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 1 /4 cups milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Additional butter, for serving
Maple syrup, for serving


Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, mix wet ingredients together until combined. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Set mix aside to rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat a non-stick griddle to 325°F and cook pancakes in batches. Keep warm on a cookie sheet lined with a cooling rack in a 250°F oven until ready to serve.
