Pancakes are an all around favorite to many people. While they are not the most healthy of all breakfasts, they sure do taste delicious! I enjoy making pancakes on the weekends because it’s the time where I can really enjoy them with my son. I typically buy a box of pancake mix, add some water and BOOM..I have delicious pancakes. This morning I was really craving chocolate chip pancakes but I didn’t have any box mix so I adapted a recipe I found online to make it a little bit healthier. Obviously, pancakes aren’t the most nutritious breakfast and the chocolate chips don’t help my case but hey, it’s the weekend!!
What I like about the recipe is that it is easy and most ingredients you’ll have on hand. I also enjoy making breakfast on the weekends because my son is to the age where he loves to help me with everything! This morning he had to help me make the pancakes and also eat some extra chocolate chips 🙂
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups almond milk
3 tablespoons Kelapo Coconut Oil; softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Yields: 8 servings
- Heat skillet to a medium low heat and spray with Kelapo Coconut Oil Cooking Spray when hot
- Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together in a large bowl
- Add milk, egg, coconut oil and vanilla extract into mix until well blended
- Pour mix into skillet and flip pancake while bubbles start to appear
- Repeat on second side until pancake is golden brown
These pancakes were so tasty! My new favorite thing to do to get a nice even spread on anything that you may use coconut oil on is spray it with our Kelapo Coconut Oil Cooking Spray. It is the perfect amount of oil and tastes way better then butter…at least in my opinion. Also, don’t forget to top your pancakes with a little maple syrup! This gives them just a little kick of sweetness. To make our breakfast a little healthier, we had turkey sausage as our protein.
