Chocolate Pancakes. Mmmmmm. If these are wrong, please don’t tell me.

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

Sam 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.

    Greetings from the end of the world. Chile, my country.
    The recipe for pancakes is very good, we are consumers of them.
    As a contribution:
    For people intolerant to gluten, you can change wheat flour for oat flour.
    Grinding the flakes is easy, with a blender or even with your hands.
    Oats are gluten-free and we invite celiacs to try this recipe, following these same simple steps.
    ¡It is very good with oatmeal!
