Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: about 8 pancakes
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 egg, separated
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. In another bowl, mix egg yolk and milk to combine. Whisk the milk mixture into the dry ingredients, until just incorporated. Don't overmix!
  2. Using an electric whisk (you could do this by hand, but it would take a while!), beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Then, gently fold in the egg whites. Heat a nonstick griddle to medium heat. Drop batter onto the heated griddle. I used this cookie scoop to make them the same size, but you could use a ¼ cup measure too!
  3. Cook the pancakes for about 3-4 minutes, until bubbles form on the surface. Flip using a spatula, and cook for an additional minute, until the bottom is browned.
  4. Serve with a generous drizzle of peanut butter and maple syrup; sprinkle over chocolate chips and powdered sugar if you dare! Enjoy!
