Chocolate Peanut Pancakes

I've always wanted to make pancakes that sizzle on the griddle, bubble on top and are a perfect brown on both sides . . . but I've never been able to master it. Mine are always black on the outside and raw in the inside, something my dad always likes to joke about. For Christmas, my mom got a griddle. So our hopes and dreams were soon to be fulfilled! I set out to find the perfect recipe. I just happened to find Vegan Snickers Pancakes by the Minimalist Baker and I was sold. Although I loved the recipe, it didn't quite fulfill all my dreams. Regardless, try it, it's not your traditional pancake, but delicious all the same.

Chocolate Peanut Pancakes

It's really a simple recipe. Simply combine your dry ingredients, add two wet ingredients, pour in your mix-ins and place on the griddle.


The fun really starts with assembling the pancakes or "plating" them. I have a family of three, so this recipe was perfect. Take one pancake and garnish with toppings. Top with another pancake and toppings. Finish with one more pancake and toppings. Complete with a dollop of maple syrup.


I recommend having these for New Year's Eve breakfast. What a great way to conclude 2012!

Hope you have a great New Year!
