I just don’t want to know if they are!

Little Buddy would most likely say the same since he’s the one that requests them time and again. That and his chocolate chip waffles. He’d eat them every day if I let him. Which I don’t, but you know what I mean.

Anyway, it sure is a good thing they are so simple to make.

Serve them with a bit of delicious maple syrup and you are good to go.

Of course, serving them with fresh fruit, a dollop of whipped cream and some chocolate syrup wouldn’t be a bad idea either. Whatever floats your boat.

    I just made this today. My husband and I actually had 3 each and just finished them. I didnt have self-rising flour so i added 1T baking powder. I used special dark cocoa so it was a bit strong. But all in all, I enjoyed the recipe. Fluffy and yummy! :)
